Default First summer with Blazer

I have been wheeling Suzuki samurai for 20 years and my current Suzuki is an LJ80, the very little brother of the samurai. The LJ is slow and not very comfortable so this summer I added a tow bar and drug it behind the Blazer to the play trails.

A lot of the weekends I like to hit the back roads and normally had to bring a tent and all that to camp out. This summer I decided to use the Blazer as my little camper and we headed out and slept in the back. Put a nice foam down and when I get to the spot I unload the back and get some sleep.

I went out and bought some screen and right before heading out I tape up the screen on the two back windows...at night, windows are open and our mosquitoes are where they belong.

We do a lot of trails/roads that lead to caves/mines and I lead groups to a lot of different areas. I have been very surprised at the capabilities of the Blazer for being a bigger vehicle than I am used to and one thing I like is the auto and the power....my LJ has 800CC and trust me...no power.






On the east coast in my area most people will go play in the mud but I like to go explore on the lighter muddy trails and see more scenery....my little LJ is saved for the hard stuff but I don't need to drive it to work.
