    DIY 10x16. I've got about $60.00 in it.

    I guess what I am looking for is an easy (lazy) way of connecting the tarp to my roof rack, I saw an awning/tarp similar to the Smittybilt that had built in snaps that wrapped around a roof rack and snapped together and am looking for something like that.

    I saw one from the UK a while back that had a built in snap system that looked great except I would have to order it from the UK and that was pretty expensive. I should have saved the link.

    I may end up doing what you suggest and just getting a tarp and creating my own snap system

    Very similar, not quite as long and didn't connect to the wheels. I will have to search through Google images again and will post if I can find it.

    Beautiful spot. I'm guessing that's old 105...?

    A scouting trip for mule deer outside Granby, CO. It was in the 20's in the morning, but the little wood stove in my tent meant I was almost too hot when I got out of my quilt. No deer spotted, but enough sign that I think I'll risk returning here for season. I did have a rather tense encounter with a young bull moose (no photos as I was point my rifle at him while backing down the trail) and managed to bag a grouse on the way out.

    Truck from where I slept:

    Tent from the outside:

    Tons of room inside with the wood stove:

    The views across most of CO aren't all that bad right now:

    Yes, we are out in the mountains most weekends this time of the year. There are great places to camp and lots of forest service roads to explore now that the weather has cooled off.

    nope, my LG G7 has a "manual mode" where I can set focus, ISO, exposure length, white balance, etc.

    We are taking my niece and nephew car camping next weekend up there. Usually find a spot along the Wiseman Rd (old 105) but I'm sure most of those will be grabbed early. Probably have to go a bit deeper. I've never been past the Wisemans View turnoff. Are there many good car camping spots down there?

    A quick overnighter in the Sierra Anchas. A little four-wheelin', a tasty beverage at sunset, and a little telescoping.

    Hey! I have that tent too, or at least one from them (Anza 1400). Really like being able to open it up so much and it is a good price.

    We keep the rain cover on all the time, stops pitch from trees in addition to keeping it dry. It looks like where you are at you don't have to worry about rain or pitch.

    Also try FR982, it's off 181 and great places by the creek.

    I go from desert to mountains and in between all the time, so the rain fly is good whenever. Down low it's great as a sunshade. I like this tent too, and mine is just the "Extreme" edition of the Anza 1400. Diamond plate aluminum for the floor, thicker tent material, and the telescoping ladder. So far it's been great.
