Right now i'm running 28 inch cooper discoverer at3's that i got for 40 bucks. They rub ever so gently on the bumper when i turn enough, but the front bumper is due for a trim anyways. Im thinking you could totally run 30's. I'm planning on getting some 29 inch Cooper Discoverer STT's.

I will most definitely keep them pics coming! And I would totally show you around, any excuse to get out of the city is great one!

Also, tested my used coopers the other night in the dank forest, and they really impressed me! Here's some phone pics of the foz flexing:




Not bad for being completely empty inside.

The weather finally cleared up yesterday; enough to go on an adventure and cook some hot dogs and baked beans for dinner.

I should've gotten a pic of the trail before this point, it was gnarly - steep with hefty jagged rocks. But this was before the trail opened up:

And when it did:



There was a thunderstorm South of us:

Pretty awesome, definitely my new favorite place to go to.

Went on a little family vacation before college fired back up two weeks ago, we went down to Valdez-which is apparently where all of the good lookin ladies live!



Took this in between Glenallen and Palmer:



Then we went up to Independence Mine; an old gold mine from the gold rush times. It has changed alot since i visited last time, with paved walkways and refurbished buildings, which we didn't care for, so we hiked over the tundra to find the original rubble:





Then went through Anchorage which is way to big of a city for me, and i picked up this gem:



An EG33 out of a 92 SVX to put in an Impreza this winter. It weighed the foz down quite a bit, almost every bump put the bumpstops to use. Had to put all the gear on the roof for this too:



The roof rack my friend and I built at my work the night before leaving, so it is definitely not finished yet. I left the engine (Big Jon) at my parents house in Nikiski, and two days later we left to Whittier. Not much to look at there aside from the Buckner building:

And more recently, I've been trying out some night photography:





And some Aurora action:



Pretty tough holding still for the 15 second exposure. I'm having a hard time getting the camera focused correctly at night, since its too dark to see anything in the view finder.

Nice aurora. We just had a huge solar flare so should have been excellent auroras! Nice pics of the ruins, esp the railway. If you can, get a shot with the camera right above one track, comes out great

That H6 would go great in your Foz! Not an easy fit though
