Ranchero camping

I've been working on a removable kayak rack for the Ranchero, so my wife & I can go camping & fishing. Took it for a test run up at Trillium Lake by Mt. Hood, and it worked great. Slow fishing, but I got 3 rainbows, enough for dinner one night.

Lots of smoke up there from the Eagle Creek wild fire in the Columbia River Gorge, so much so that Mt. Hood was not visible yesterday when we left camp.

That is extremely cool. It looks great!

Those little Rancheros are really nice.

Nice! I've heard it sometimes rains in Oregon. Maybe you could work on a canvas cover for the rack so you can sleep in the Ranchero too (or maybe you have a better solution).
