The Rocky Mountain Mogger's Spring Outing to the Pole Mountain area in Wyoming was an enormous success !!! Thanks to Kent for all of his hard work and planning. The camp site was excellent, the trail runs were exciting and challenging, and the scenery was outstanding. Kent thought of all the details, and a great time was had by all.
Many of the Moggers arrived on Friday, and were greeted by a late spring snow/sleet storm. I was fortunate enough to arrive after the snow stopped, but it was still fairly cold (oh, I know, this wasn't cold for you Wyoming residents...). There was a couple of inches of frozen stuff on the ground.
After a snug night in the VLF, we had a leisurely breakfast, and visited with all of the other Unimogs and folks. Then we got the wagons in a row, and headed out for a trail ride. Kent had picked out a route with several challenging obstacles. The rocks were pretty tough, but all of the Unimogs and the Pinzgauer made short work of them. We had some fun in the mud holes, especially Klaus !!! We had a lunch break (photo above), and tackled some more dirt roads. After the trail ride, we took a break at the Lincoln rest area, and then went back to camp. Klaus spent hours cooking up a batch of his famous Goulash, and we all had a bowl, while we watched Unimog videos (powered by Darrin's generator) next to the campfire.
After a much warmer Saturday night, we were joined on Sunday by the smallest Unimog in the group, the Christensen's 1953 2010. We did another trail ride, through a very scenic part of the Pole Mountain area. We headed back to camp, and packed up to head home. The only casualties for the weekend were 1 flat tire, 1 broken windshield, and a dead alternator.
