    KOH 2017.. my trip in a few pictures

    I decided this year to drive down to King of the Hammers this year.. It was a bitch of a drive, especially with 395 shut down due to the weather.. Stupid me forgot about hwy 6 and 95.. but at least i hit that on the way home.. I took a couple friends and my toyhauler, with a Haflinger packed up and ready to go inside of it. A toyhauler or camper is definitely the way to go at this event due to the constant dust, wind, temperatures, and people driving around 24/7.. Also everything was spread out all over hell, so a rig is a necessity for getting around to the different view spots. Here is my trip in a nutshell:

    I arrived on Wednesday.. I'd recommend getting there before all the events start!


    The drive.. sightseeing a bit in Palmdale..





    Unpacking the Haflinger.. This lil beast saved us a LOT of walking..




    Our ride at the top of Chocolate thunder viewing area..








    Everyman race..














    Interesting mog





    and camper..





    Cont..

    Nighttime was a cluster of drunken wheelers.. with even more drunks surrounding the wheelers.. Amazed nobody died..




    Backdoor at night:
























    Chocolate thunder also at night, full of liquid courage.









    Looking towards Hammertown from Chocolate thunder:

    Looks like you had a good time. I dig your Haflinger, it is like the original side by side!

    Nice post. I had a chance to buy the Haflinger's big brother, a 710 Pinzgauer, a few years back. Spousal pressure killed that deal. I still keep my eye out for one. Pretty neat little truck.

    I was down there for 10 days this year. I did a lot of prerunning (aka rec wheeling) but also had the chance to race this year. I had a blast!
