    BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!
    Couple of things to cover here, I am looking for a way to mount my spare tire in the bed of my truck, currently I just keep the spare in the bed locked in one corner. I am looking for more of a way to mount it vertically out of the way but still in the bed, not under the bed in stock location. Any ideas or know of any product available?


    ALSO!

    This summer I plan on taking a trip through some of the New England states, I live in northeast Ohio just south of Cleveland. I plan on driving through upstate NY and into Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and south down the east coast from there if time permits.(Not going any further south than Delaware) Looking at about 1-2 week journey, primitive camping mostly along the way but will stay in some hotels or B&B somewhere along the way if any good ones are recommended. I LITERALLY have no plan other than that so I am starting my actual plan now.
    It will be my wife and I, both in our mid 20's, both originally from Mississippi, and wanting to visit a few states that we would never get to see otherwise.
    If you have anything that you would recommend to do or see in those areas please I would like to hear your input. Also if you know of something that I should avoid that is also much appreciated.

    Post this over on the Northeast section. There's a New England BS thread with lots of traffic.

    Yes the point of me posting in 1st gen thread was because of the bed mount tire option but realized I got carried away with my second topic. Thanks.
