Yeah, I am really enjoying the time we spend camping in the Disco. He is old enough to be his own person and take care of himself (sets up his own tent etc) but still little enough to be a kid and want to hang with Dad (no longer Daddy).

Good times for sure.

I thought the same thing..."dang, he's already able to drive it by himself?"

Then I saw your nose. Very cool Aaron.

Where did you camp?

Saline Valley warm springs... nothing crazy. But it is an annual thing.

This year saw some big changes...

As has become the norm, we let Evan "drive".



He is getting to damn big. He did well, however, he is too big and it was uncomfortable for both of us. Which led us to this...



Gabrielle decided to stay out of the truck for the first attempt as she was pretty skeptical. My rational: Low range, 1st gear, jeep track with very few rocks larger than a basket ball... how bad could it be?



He did really well. We had loads of fun. Gabrielle even decided to join us for the next outing.



Evan's first ride in a vehicle, home from the hospital, was in this Discovery. His first time steering a vehicle was in this Discovery. And now his first driving experience has been in this Discovery. This truck indeed has some memories.

We still need to work on his manual gear box skills...
