A friend of mine, and maybe others, Alex Ulivi just moved up there. You won't find a more animated character in that town. He is a 'Cruiser freak if there ever was one. Has a VERY tricked out FJ40, m416 trailer with Hannibal tent, etc. All the goodies -- expedition style.
I'll see if I can get some contact info for you. I know he would love to visit with another 'Cruiser nut when you get up there.
