Splits in the woods, mountains, desert, plains, at the river, etc. It would be nice to consolidate the stories, videos, and pics so that we all can enjoy each others adventures. I'll start:

Nice! I need to dig up some old photos and scan them in from years back...this is the only one I have digitally - it's from a friend's farm out in the middle of nowhere...(notice how I keep a clear distance from the vanagons)

Thanks Kris. It needed to be done!

That pic was on my desktop for a long time. Didn't know it was your old bus 'till now. Badass! Your an old school backroadbuser, eh?

Great pictures everyone! Now I can stop scanning the gallery for pics and just use this thread for a supply desktop background images Smile.
