Hello from Orange, CA.

Post by Huber_1978 » Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:26 pm

Just wanted to say a quick hello and introduce myself.
My name is Chris and I have been camping and exploring the Panamint Valley area for the last 15 years or so with my brother and a few close friends. Absolutely love the valley and surrounding mountain ranges and try to get out to camp in the area 6-7 times a year. Actually just got back from a few days of staying at the Kopper King this past weekend. I enjoy working on the older bikes and 4x4 rigs so if you ever see me please say hello while in the valley. Hard to miss a bright yellow 4x4!

Great forum!

Chris

Thanks David!
Heading back up to Panamint next month so I'll be sure to post more photos and report back on my trip.

Old Fords are great trucks. Almost as good as my now old Toyota ... :wink:

Had a 1970 F-250 4x4 when I lived in June Lake during the 1970s and 1980s. Original owner bought it new at the Ford dealer in Bishop. Basic truck, 360 inch V8, 4-speed, no power steering or brakes, no AC. Sold it to my brother in law in Trona in 1985. It was still on the road down there last I saw it in 2004. Drove that truck all over Eastern California and Central Nevada. The few times something broke, wasn't something vice grips, wire and duct tape could fix.

Welcome aboard. Thanks for the pictures. I like your set-up. It looks like you get out camping a lot.

Thanks Norm. It's been a great set up for me so far. Everything is in the truck so if I find the time it's already loaded and ready to go.
