Out there seeing our country, camping amongst the wonders, enjoying what you have, does it get better?  :)

Nice trip Rattiac!  I love Yellowstone and that part of the country!

Looks like a great trip! How's the teardrop holding up? My son just got back from a 10 day hiking trip: Montana, Idaho. He said it was the best ever!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Yup, dosent get any better.  ;D
It was sooo green up there. Kinda splurged at bear world and got tickets to feed the baby bear's. What an awesome experience. 🐻 🐻🐻
Didn't get any bites while fishing. Oh well. We did bring back some alcohol, fireworks and lottery tickets.
It's a Utah thing.  :o 8).
Since I haven't caught any fish in a long time, my bosses grand kid is a heck of a fisherman so..... im bringing my poles and gear to work to have him see what im doing wrong  :-[.
He's 12 and catches lunkers every time out.

Teardrop did great. The door has a small leak while driving in the rain I need to fix. The mattress was a bit wet by the door but the sleeping bag stayed dry. We put a towel there during travel.

I let the jeep have a day off yesterday but... today
It sounds like I killed a rear u-joint.
Like a good jeep. It got me home. :)

Definitely had a good time.  ;D

I put my spare driveshaft in and the squeak is gone but.... I'll be sending the jeep in to a driveshaft shop, having them rebuilt the shaft and figure out the slight vibes I have at 65mph.
Last time I rebuilt the shaft myself, it was actually cheaper to have a shop do it.

Looking at the hurt shaft. The end u-joint seems smooth during travel, the double cardian is a bit stiff.
