Capitol Peak Forest, WA Sighting - White Van, Blue Stripes

I parked behind this ~10 year old Sportsmobile in the Capitol Peak Forest near Olympia, WA yesterday. Is this you...?

It was not me... but I think I saw you on Petrovisky Rd out in Maple Valley last Friday afternoon on my way out of town. I had the Black Van with whitewater kayaks on top. maybe it was someone else though, that van had aluminess on the front and back.

Geoff, where you using your driver's side nerf bar as a rock slider?

Heh... yeah. Apparently I did not understand this distinction until recently.

I've now bent the nerf bars on both sides of my van, though the driver side is worse.

The driver's side I bent last summer fooling around in the Quilomene, WA area. No photos of the actual incident, sorry, but photos of my wife's face watching might've been more interesting.



Sounds like I need to find or make some sliders / rock rails!

Ah...nothing like wearing the new off of your rig. I still remember my first scratch.
