Flagstaff, AZ-Lake Powell, UT
Helped break down part of the Camel Trophy training area before lunch, and then the 7P crew helped put the synthetic winch line they sponsored on Beasties newly functioning winch! It was a little bit of a process. Very thankful to Nick and everyone who helped make that project complete. I went to a synthetic line over the stock steel cable, so I had something easier to handle if need be when I was on the road by myself. Leaving Expo is always hard. It’s always hard leaving such an incredible group of people, the camaraderie, the community, the feeling of fitting. I have to remind myself I know I’ll see them again and we’ll all have new stories and adventures to share over good food and beer.
From Flagstaff I headed NW to Lake Powell, UT to join some friends and camp along the shores at Lone Rock. I met up with my friend Basil Lynch and Matt of Off Grid Engineering. Also in the group was James and Clarie of “This Big Road Trip”, and english couple who had moved to Canada and then sold everything to travel the world in a Dodge Ram with camper.
