Teardropping the Sierras

We took the Benkev (Kevin’s version of a 1954 Benroy) on a trip through the Sierra Nevada range this week.  It was a good test, as it poured part of the trip and we spent the night in the rain at about 8000′ elevation.  We were snug and dry however, listening to the rain pattering on the roof and thanking God we weren’t in a tent like 10 years ago this month.

We towed it with our 4Runner, and with the route we took I’m glad we didn’t have to tow anything heavier, as we crossed some high passes with 8% grades and harrowing dropoffs.  It was well worth it, as we saw one incredible vista after another on top of the world.  We’re already planning next year’s trip.
