The things that I spotted from the first pic ...

You get a clear view of Tim's bumper. Which he made. The bumper that was there before had an entirely different idea of what a "bump" might be.


And this picture includes a good example of what our jungle looks like. I think a lot of the forest in montana is not as jungly as ours.

Well part of the reason we stopped on the summit was we were over heating....so let the ol girl cool off an then Tim went to check fluid an she blew the cap right off...an had an oil leak on the back side of the motor. Some very nice people stopped an helped us out an gave us plenty water to fill her back up again....topped off the oil an she seems good to go again! Thank you so much to the strangers that stopped an helped us out!
