Back to Life on 4 Wheels

Well, it has been about 3 weeks since I have gotten back from Patagonia, and I have already managed to climb twice as many pitches since my return as I did down there!  Although work has been slow (non-existent) around here, it has been nice to relax a bit and catch up with the family and some friends before heading back down to the madness that is Yosemite.  
One of the greatest things about having so much time on my hands (and power tools at my disposal), is that I was able to finally tackle a project I had been planning:  a sleeping platform/storage system for the back of my truck.  I based it of of several other people's designs, and took what I liked from each, trying to keep things as simple as possible and easy for one person to remove.  now it's finished and covered in a nice carpet, ready to hit the road down south in a couple weeks.  This baby is like the Four Seasons compared to throwing down next to the rig in a dust bowl outside Mammoth!  See you folks down there...
