    Getting the little buggers outside and off their "devices" is a great plan. When I was growing up we had a Westphalia we bought in Belgium and dad came back to NA with it on a freighter followed by a 2wd GMC with a 10' camper on it. I'm sure it was the height of luxury back then, but my brother and I were always in a tiny $5 tent while the folks were in the camper. (I wonder what they were doing in there??). I think the rainy nights in the tent were character building. At the time I recall them being miserable!

    Default Eclipse 2017 - Casper, WY

    From a recent 20 day, 6,000mi loop out West to photograph the eclipse. Found a high ridge with a 360 degree view, NW of Casper, WY that I had all to myself. A custom trailer is in the works for a Winter build, so made do with a rental unit for this trip. Spent a week in the Spokane area helping a friend with her remodel project, so had the trailer full of tools that normally wouldn't be part of the equation.

    How's this for avoiding the eclipse hordes??? About a mile and a half off a remote paved road near Arminto, WY.

    400 watts of solar kept things humming along nicely...

    Nice pics, nice spot! We only got about 90% coverage where I am just north of Seattle. It was interesting, but no more to the dark them we've had with the weeks of forest fire smoke. It's been so thick you'd think it was twilight at noon!

    Default 6.5' home built Nissan Frontier camper.

    Here are a few photos of my Hard sided camper I built from an old electricians topper that was meant for a ford F150 with the tapered bed.

    The point was to keep the cost down while still making something I could use for winter camping, I believe I have around 1,000 into the camper as it sits. There are still many modifications I'd like to make. The main modification coming up is to turn it from a topper into an actual slide in that can be removed with a fork lift. I'm looking for waterproofing ideas for the underside of the camper. I should have done this on the original build but I was in a rush to get it finished for the winter to go out west.
