    Awesome! I love the 4x4 conversion. I'll be following this for sure.

    Just got done with reading your build thread and I must say that I am pretty jealous. I love 4x4 converted vans but wife thinks they look "sketchy".

    Update #3: West Texas, New Mexico, Colorado

    After leaving my buddies place in Oklahoma City I started heading out west towards Amarillo.











    I ended up staying at Palo Duro Canyon for the night. It was my first time going to a canyon before. What an amazing place.













    After Amarillo I started going north a bit. My plan was to go to Pueblo and drop off all of my summer stuff to shed some weight. The drive out there was pretty generic. I tried taking pics of the incoming mountains but the gopro isn't exactly the best camera for far away stuff.



    This ****ing guy carrying this house at like 65+ mph. **** was falling off of it and he was hitting poles on the side of the road lol. I wish I would've got a video. He was coming up that road whether you moved or not.





    First glimpse of "snow"







    Made it to Colorado



    So I stop in Pueblo and get a storage unit. I drop the bike and go to take the lock off of it and bam!



    Luckily it was just enough to stick a flathead in it and get it open. Avoided that headache. After getting rid of some weight I went to Colorado Springs to some awesome dog park with a stream and everything.



    On the way to Denver... Pike's Peak









    And saw this awesomeness yesterday.



    So that's it. It's going to be pretty slow for a while. I plan on staying in the area and finally use the Epic Pass. I have friends flying in next month to Salt Lake City so I'll probably just hit a few mountains here to scope em out, then head out west to Utah for a bit.
