    Thanks for the warm welcome all. Apologize for the delayed response; just learned about the Alerts function.

    Am at 30k feet and a few attempts trying to attach a pic on the mobile through Southwest's onboard network has been less than successful. Will try again in the near future.

    Meanwhile, a brief intro. Our rig is a new-to-us 2011 Land Cruiser. We found her religiously maintained with all dealer records in the SF Bay and only 68k miles Spring 2017. Previous owners are really good people. The conclusion of a year long nationwide hunt for a low mileage, single owner, private sale, well-maintained 2010-2011 white cruiser kicked off a new journey that brings us into the thick of this community. We had to make one concession, tho: grey interior instead of the originally desired tan. The gray has grown on me and love it just the same now.

    In the pic I'll attach, the rig is towing our "Poor Man's Schutt" expedition trailer based off an early 60s International C1300 pickup. With two young girls, a third girl on the way, two dogs (German Shepherd & Standard Poodle - Jim Belushi K-9 anyone?), and a decent sized canyon cooler (seemingly hijacked to primarily keep milk cool for a few days straight), the cruiser fills up quickly and the little trailer is a godsend.

    There's something about 60s Internationals that exude off road purity.

    We are not certain what year the trailer is actually. We guess it came off the back of an early 60s (1963?) C1300. My father in law saw the trailer sitting outside a house in his extended neighborhood, rang the door bell, offered the owner $500, and took it home. It's converted nicely into a great expedition trailer: narrow like a compact pickup, longer than most full sized beds. A little heavy, but not as bad as we thought it'd be.
