Sooo... back to the point. The dates, direction, line up and a couple of possibilities of trailer parking spots are done....

Warm up trip planning next? Wrench parties needed? Beech boy songs typed?

I think I've decided to come out the 395 and park the trailer at the tahoe staging area, then meet up with the rest of you where ever you decide to meet.

i guess plan A vs plan B would be based off of when we actually hit the trail and how smooth the day goes.

nice. It will be interesting to compare this to a ARB. If it's good and its half the price than thats quite the score. I'm going to try and avoid buying one for now as I was good last time but if a sale goes on than I'll probably cave.

Usually these are about $700. Reviews on them are pretty good too, over 4 stars out of 5. It turns out that the ads out of Brea, CA are from the local Whynter distributor selling off their floor models. So if you're heading down this way, it might be worth a look.
I also picked up one of their Ice Cream makers for $150 and it works great. The fridge is plugged in and running now to burn it in for a couple weeks (only has a 30 day warranty), I'll try running on some batteries next.
