    Too many to list, and I've probably forgotten a bunch.
    That's the same guy I think, only you ordered yours with the 'BBQ grill' handles. My friend has the same burner setup and everything. I noticed this morning how the legs pack/attach to the burner for easy transport, which slick as hell.

    I'm gonna have to get my one of them things. It was actually more fun to use than the grill!!

    yeah, but the burner is super friggen hot. it goes from 0 to nuclear in like 10 seconds.

    i got the cover for the disc and it goes on the bottom of my RTT (where the table is in the pic). what i really want is good case/storage solution for the burner.

    All depends on how and what you pack. I got the Mullet so I could easily pack a lot.

    A box truck isn’t making it through slick rock. All depends on where you wanna go and how you wanna camp.

    Yeah no kidding, it'll be interesting but I'm thinking a queen bed and AC sounds pretty cool. Maybe not quite camping... but hey. I'll have to tow it behind, but whatever. I can also tow my landcruiser so that'll be nice, if I ever wheel it again.

    I thought someone made a skottle holder for a tailgate swing out doohickey. In case you want them expo points.

    In other news. The Mule walked the Rubicon. Didn't do soup bowl or kitchen due to a missing front driveline which also forced me to run the last 3rd in 2wd. Always good times!

    Yeah, the gas valve is super sensitive. 1/16 of a turn goes from simmer to "we have liftoff". Sorta nuts in that regard, but I suppose I could swap out a different valve.

    that's a good idea - valve swap. i cooked on it about 10 times before i finally figured out to barely turn the valve to get heat control.

    Less than I paid for my CFX 75DZW, but I saved hundreds with the group buy.

    I'm thinking about checking out some of the free Frenchmans Lake.
    If you look at the pics you can see the 3 pay campgrounds in the 1st pic.
    If you go past big cove it looks like you can get to the Crystal Vista area (outhouse included) that looks free.
    I'm hoping for #1 or 2
    Might end up at Spring Creek pay area.

    Well that was an interesting weekend.

    I took a drive up to Silver Creek (Hwy 4). Still pretty awesome that I can reach places I've fished since I was a little kid in 1-1.5 hours now, vs the previous 3.5-4. Busted one fly rod (already dropped it with FedEx - lifetime warranty against being an idiot!), switched to my 3wt and started losing fish. Big ones, no less. Something was 'off' with me, but it was fun watching big 'bows roll on my dries. Skeeters weren't too bad, unlike last weekend up on the West Fork, but man was it HOT. By 1, I guess the hangovers had worn off, and Idiot Crew started to show up.

    Driving home, I heard a hollow "plooMP!" from the back of the truck. No clue. Turns out the last good gas strut on my ARE topper blew out its seal (from the heat?). Ordered parts. So much fun, "missed" the gun show, spent yesterday in the garage, drinking beer and pondering mods to the 4Runner.

    Too bad the wife comes back home this weekend. Bachelor Life is so nice.

    Went up to Highland lakes over the weekend with our almost 4 month old. Mosquitoes were OK, not terrible. Probably 1-2 weeks away from peak wildflower bloom. The road in was much improved from even last year when there were some pretty big ruts, saw an early 2000's accord up there. Still enough snow on the north side of Hiram Peak to carve a few turns:headbang:

    Sometimes I wish they’d let some of those roads degrade. Love that area but too easy to get to. I guess they have to keep it accessible to the horse trailers though.
