Damn those tracks are ridiculous, any additional pics or videos of that rig? Looks like a nice double cab there too...

The only other photo I got was when it was still in on the trailer.

That must have been awful! I had a 160 mile ride home yesterday and it was negative single digits for most of the ride. With the heat on it was probably mid 30s inside the truck at best. Can't imagine no heat at all.

It was super cold on the way back to VT. Right by mount Washington I think was the coldest, even with everything running (v8 heat, espar, heated seats all under insulated soft top we could still only keep 65f in the 110. If we slowed down to 45mph or slower it went up to 80+.

Front lower of my food has massive air leak. Annoying as all new seals. In also feeling air down by my left foot (LHD) so somewhere I guess forward of the door.

I froze in my RRC even with the heat working after getting soaked from the 1/2 hour at the car wash trying to get the crusted ice off my rims so I could drive over 45mph on the highway.

Winter Romp

Here is a link to my photo album from the Winter Romp.

https://www.flickr.com/gp/47617502@N08/360mhK



I decided not to drive back on Monday for fear of the ice in the weather forecast. I instead came back on Tuesday - no ice but tons a rain. However, the temperatures were not in the single digits but instead in the 40's. What a difference the trip is when you are at a comfortable temperature in the cab (albeit with a wet foot).

So the Series Stage One made it another 13 hours straight up and 13 hours straight back with no problems. It also tackled the terrain in Maine fairly well.

PS - If you want to know more about the "police stop" then you should reserve your spot in the back of my truck for next year.... what happens in Waterville stays in Waterville.
