Hittin' the Road!

On Friday they loaded up the truck and Saturday morning, David & JB hit the road for New Mexico. JB spent a couple days prior making a few modifications to the truck. He added extra lights (front & back), installed the camper and cargo shells, as well as his own ingenious tarp system that extends immediately off the rear of the truck for protection from sun and inclement weather.

On their trip to the southern CDT terminus, the guys are staying with David's parents in Arkansas and then with Blake Wood. Over the next week they will be scouting parts of the trail in NM.

You two look good now, just wait about a month. I'm still trying to get out there to run a bit in the Colorado section. Give us a "Mountain Lion" count!
