Hey Guys and Gals, my names Cody, I have been enjoying the outdoors of BC going on 23 years now. I love this place and even with my recent found love for travelling I don't see me living anywhere else.

I just bought my first 4x4 although I have been a 4x4 enthusiast for quite some time and it has been many years in the making.

The details that some may be interested in, it's a 1995 Hilux Surf 3.0l TurboDiesel, so far I have installed an alarm with remote start and keyless entry along with a GPS and tinted out the back windows. I also have started stripping down the stock alloy wheels and have painted 1 of the 5, which I hope to finish up this week so I can get my Trxus MT's mounted and actually test out the 4wd.

I'm hoping to get an OME 2-3" lift put in within the next year as I have experience with suspension and it's all stuff I've done before so for 700 bux and a day or 2 in my driveway it seems like a no brainer.

I am however having slight buyers remorse and think in maybe 5 years or so I will try and aim to buy an 80 series Landcruiser with the 4.2L diesel and the front and rear lockers with the fridge in the armrest and a sunroof (all things the surf doesn't have)

As for other things I enjoy besides vehicles, I love camping, I love snowboarding, I love Quadding and Canoeing (my best camping trip so far has been the Bowron Lakes Chain... 116km of amazing). I have also in the last few years gotten into clay shooting and have started my own little gun collection.

Anyways enough of my novel, if you have any questions shoot em my way, I'm trying out a few different forums right now and I'll do my best to get back at you as fast as I can.
Cheers[cheers] Cody

Yup turbo'd :D 105*** km's in mint condition.
Gonna be a fun couple of months. Took her to the drive in on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised at how comfy the back was when the seats were folded flat, definitely gonna enjoy camping in her on over nighters. She gets her first real road trip at the end of August when I head to Edmonton, gonna stay the night somewhere up near Jasper. Also I'm heading over to the island the weekend prior to that so she'll get 2 road trips in right quick and in a hurry!

there is some cheap campsites just outside of jasper, in hinton, I ocasionally stay out there for work..

07-21-2010, 09:46 PM
Hinton eh, dunno if I wanna aim to get that far as I'll be leaving around 5pm or so on a friday. I am trying to get it so I can drive the rockies in the daylight and admire their beauty better, it's been way too long since I've seen them.
