Completed the first camping trip with the little one. Whole different level of camping with an 18 month old lol. Used every bit of storage space and the roof top box. Has me eyeing some drawers and upgrading my cargo management for the next outing.
it was a great time exploring the Bowman Lake and Meadow Lake trails in the Tahoe National Forest. Still some snow drifts above 7,000 feet that the LC plowed through like a champ.
I’ve had various and multiple Cruisers since the mid 1980s but have been without for the last 4 years. I feel better now. I even tested out the Toyota Safety Sense pre-collision system on the way back to the valley from the SF Bay Area dealer. Going with traffic flow (about 85) down the Altamont and I was fiddling with the climate control. I’m not sure if the system applied the brakes or not. I heard beeps.. looked up and saw cars stopping & skidding in all directions. So now I know I can maneuver pretty good with the ABS clicking. The thing did porpoise like flipper however.. Need to get it dialed for towing the trailer. I ordered the Redarc brake controller. I’ll have to hook up the trailer and see if air bags are needed. I appreciate all the info on this forum. My dog helped me creep around checking the underside. Mods are being planned.
