One of my wife’s dream was to visit Yellowstone, enjoy the scenic views, hopefully see some wild life there. After our previous trip to Death valley we were more confident in our little one’s ability to travel. I’ve checked if there were any tent sites available for the end of May, and to my surprise – there were. With a smile on a face I’ve quickly booked one for 3 nights. But once I’ve checked the weather report, my smile vanished: 35F at night with rain and snow… We’re not ready for that yet. So I had to cancel tent site reservation and booked a cabin with heater on KOA campground instead.
About a year ago I was driving through Death Valley, I’ve probably spent less than 4 hours in it, but I was confident that one day I have to come back and spend at least couple days there. Well the time has come. My 3 day weekend was coming and we as a family decided to go to Death Valley. When Kate told some of her friends that she’s going to Death Valley, some of them believed that “it’s the place where people die”. Now we had to prove that they were wrong =)
Long before I bought a truck, I knew that I will have mobile ham radio installed in it. As it is a new truck, I did not feel comfortable drilling any extra holes, so I’ve spent some times finding the way to install all of it with minimal damage. In the post I will describe what it takes to install a Kenwood v71a dual band radio into Tundra TRD Pro.
