Default blazer overlanding trip 2017

So I got this blazer for free back in Feb, had to do a little work and it still suffers from high blood pressure when you first start it but the pressure goes normal and seems to run fine.

Random camp that fell from age, some of the boards on the original camp were over 10" wide so it has some age.

Last summer I came to this site and a bunch of people were camping and they had a tent trailer in here...it's no possible to get down there with a car.

So we took off from town and since it's early in the season I still had to be careful on what trail we took, the ground is still very wet and I didn't have much recovery gear.

Our total distance was 380km's and over half of that was on dirt. Once the ground is dry I'll be able to do most of that on dirt.

We woke up this morning to a near freezing temp and it was cold, it was fine in the sleeping bag but getting going was cold.

So we are crossing a power line and I spot a bear, I jump out of the blazer and start yelling at the bear...it was awesome when he stood up on his back legs. The GF was loosing it because I had the keys in my pocket and the windows were down. the bear was over 400 yards.

I had the tires already and they fit perfect on the stock rig, I'd love to shove more tire under there but then I'd have to lift it and it would start breaking parts.
