After a long Friday evening drive on I-70 in the snow, we arrived in Meeker, Colorado for a weekend visit. Escaping the cold ‘teen temps in Denver, we enjoyed unusually warm 50 degree weather in Meeker. With only a dusting of snow on the ground, it was hard to tell that it was the middle of winter. But no matter the weather, we were here on a mission – to build our new mobile camp site.
We love our roof top tent, but once you set up camp you are unable to drive your vehicle. So J came up with a great solution; to mount the tent on our ATV trailer and make it more off road capable with a new heavy duty axle and 16 inch all-terrain tires. Luckily, we have good connections in Meeker and they just happen to be handy with a welder, so off to Meeker we went. The weekend was spent hard at work modifying the trailer and creating a base for the tent. After a day and and a half, the modification is well on its way, but a few more trips will be in our future to finish it. This summer we plan to be camping in style, have room for our ATV and still have the Cruiser available for adventure.
Our visit wasn’t all work for J, we visited a few local Meeker sheep and enjoyed dinner at the Meeker Bistro. We also enjoyed a sweet treat from our gracious hosts — a Harvey Wallbanger cake. This bundt cake is delicious, moist and the recipe is easy.
