Was there today. Between 9:30 and 10 I was heading up the 5 and CHP were directing all traffic to turnaround at Vista del Lago, just one exit before Smokey Mtn Road. I got to the ramp after about an hour of creeping and was just about to head home when I noticed two well setup jeeps and a nice red SMB off to the left just sitting in the barren lanes. So, I crossed the flare line and joined them. The four of us sat there, chatting with the chp officer about conditions further up, and suddenly he just let the four of us proceed up the 5. So it was just us for the next few miles on an open and perfectly clear interstate! That was fun. Got off and headed into Hungry Valley and there was a huge crowd of jeeps, SMB's, rovers, and all kinds of nice rigs at the TFT's event. It was freezing cold with a strong snowy wind, but everyone hung out outside and a few in their vehicles. Alan Feld, owner of Sportsmobile, was there with his latest creation and a batch of hot cider and pizza. It was a fun time.
Assorted pics, (I hope I get the names correct, excuse me for leaving any out) including mine, Alan's, Steve's, Dave & Pam, Brent, KTMrider, Ramsey and pics of Alan's new creation (the white unimog style thing), and other pics of interesting things done to other rigs.
