      Last panel went on, finished up some framing in the roof area on the inside, lots more fiberglass patching. Ditched the old jack, cleaned up the rust, new jack and safety chains, started in on the wiring. Started getting lights in place...

      Its on the front.

      Isn't Cooke City inaccessible right now?

      I went to the Bell Lake split and the snow line was still about 1k above me I think. Exactly as that little "Y" split on the map shows.

      OnX is better for land information and I have found their trail (hiking) information to be a little more accurate. Gaia is better for roads and I love their route drawing features. They both have their place.

      I was just up above potosi on saturday and that snow map is surprisingly accurate, maybe slightly low but overall good.

      Next panel is rough in place, have to put a couple more pieces of framing in first but ran out of wood. Started fiberglass patching some of the numerous holes as well.

      Yes to the flashing idea, if you put it on both sides it looks like it was on purpose!

      Another few days goes by, another panel goes on.

      Found a few minutes sunday afternoon after getting back from a trip to get a couple things done. New door hardware is in, will probably have to make some adjustments once it goes back into the frame and into the camper. First piece of siding...

      Haven't explored the area at all other than just passing through a couple times. You can rifle hunt during the rut in the backcountry HD though so I'm planning to make it happen.

      May find some scrap aluminum and get someone to tig a patch onto this panel to fill the gap. Removing this one panel isn't nearly as big of a deal, or they may be able to swing by and weld it in place.

      Heres the spotted bear MVUM, which covers the limits of the driveable area adjacent to the backcountry area I will be trying to reach. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd495962.pdf I'm specifically interested in 568 that goes...

      Already going to be out of town or I'd be all over this one, love the Little Belts.

      Back tracking at this point would involve removing hundreds of screws, like 40' of butyl tape, at least that much in caulked seams, wire brushing all the panels again, for about a 1.25" gap at its widest and 3-4' in length. Just doesn't seem...

      The old aluminum panels are what give it character.

      Made some more progress on panels this weekend. Drivers side has all 4 panels on now. I also ran into my first real hiccup so far in the build. The drivers top front panel is about 1.25" off at the top (first photo). My template for framing...

      Certain roads close as early as 9/1 but most seem to be 11/30 unless the MVUM is out of date.

      I'm planning a hunting trip east of hungry horse this fall. I'll give you some FS roads to scout out of you are interested.

      Yeah it's amazing how little structure is in these things. I guess all the rigidity came from the metal panels not really the structure underneath. Not through yet, loooong way to go, but staying motivated.

      Wow, pretty amazing how chincy some things are/were made, this mass produced camper barely has any substantial structure. Also makes you realize how relatively easy it would be to fab up a really nice solid homemade camper. Good on you for...

      The door on this thing felt very flimsy so I opened it up and found basically no structure and cardboard insulation. Built in some structure and put foam insulation in. Sadly I forgot to take a picture before putting it back together. :doh:

      Last roof panel went on over the weekend. After which I reframed around the vent and put the vent cap back on. Started on the driver side paneling after that, test fitting this first panel was a pain in the ass, I needed the panel in front...
