Went on a little mission last weekend with Tacoma World guys. Figured I'd cross post to get a little activity in here.

My write up of the trip...

The Squad and I rolled out Thursday night around 730 or so. Met up with @Sdtrueblue and his brother in law on the road just outside of Mojave. We made our way out to Lone Pine to the Alabama Hills. Set up camp had a few sport soda around the fire and hit the rack.

The next morning everyone was up pretty early.

Mark and Bret packed up camp and head to store and then on up to Mammoth to meet up with the rest of the group.

My little guys and I played with the crawler for a little bit.

We packed up headed into town for breakfast. Ended up at the Totem Cafe... Food was pretty good and we had the whole patio to ourselves.

Fed and watered we hit the pike to Bishop. Gassed up and stopped a Kmart for a few forgotten items. Made a pit stop at mohangany meats and picked up a some sausages and it hit the trail to Mammoth....

Was a little bit toasty out but with AC on full kill was pretty much no big deal..

Hit the benton crossing rd and had about a 20 min drive to camp.... 2pm we pulled into camp... said hello to a few guys.
Set up shop and got to work on some bacon wrapped items...

Trucks kept rolling in throughout the afternoon, as nightfall hit we hung out around a Coleman lantern as we opted for the no fire.... Had some sport sodas and some laughs. I hit the rack shortly after midnight.

Rise and Shine....

A little way up the hill Blue 2wd Taco lost momentum and couldn't get going again. We tried few different lines but was just too loose under the rock. So @butters_ spun around and we hooked up the umbilical cord and pulled him up to a turn out where we left the truck along with @Sdtrueblue 's truck.

And we were off again. Little Bonus line climb... Was actually pretty steep in 4hi 2nd gear. We barely made it up.

After the trail Saturday, we decided it would be best to load up and head home after 2 rough nights with the little man. So hit the road home.
