    I get out on smaller trips that I do not share here, but only to friends and family privately on Facebook.
    I do not post every trip to here or other forums.
    I am about out of vacation time from work too until April, and I use it wisely.
    When I retire in a few years I will have lots more time to get out.
    I am thinking several week long trips up to Banff, Alberta and vicinity.

    I researched Banff. WOW!

    Banff makes WV look like a bus station bathroom. Screw coming out to WV. I need to head your way.
    2010 Chevrolet Colorado V8 - Lots of mods. Nobody cares......it's a Colorado.

    I built and owned a Colorado ZR2 before it was cool.

    I camped there with my parents in my older brothers tent trailer back around '72 or '73.
    Took a few days to get there from Seattle, but it was worth it.
    The mosquitoes are HUGE, and so are the bears.

    This guy I follow on the 'Tube lives up that general direction, I am sure he may be on the forum here too.
    I know he is over on Overland Bounds forum.

    Default Its Hammer Time! 1-13-2018

    First day in awhile with it being fairly nice outside, and no rain.
    I cleaned out my interior which needed it badly, and was organizing my cargobox a bit, and I spied the plastic tent stake hammer in there that I have been wanting to move to the rear door fold down rack/table.

    I had some more of those mini Quick Fists like I used for the small hatchet, but they were too small.
    I also had two more pair of the bigger ones like that hold my Fiskars axe to the rack.
    Perfect size, and now I do not have to dig through the cargobox when it is hammer time for pounding in stakes for various camping accessories.
    This hammer also pulls out stakes too.
    I have had the hammer since the late 80s when I use to backpack around Mount Rainier.
    Light weight, and it does a great job, even on bigger heavier stakes.

    I had bought it at REI, but Amazon carries these too.

    Used the new 1/4" bolts, Nylock nuts, and flat washers that I had bought for the installation of the Tembo Tusk fridge slide to the top of the Goose Gear cargobox



    Quick Fists rule



    It is a great fit indeed, and much more easy to get to now
