High Sierra Adventure in a Four Wheel Pop-Up Truck Camper – Savage Camper
With a short time frame of roughly five days in the Four Wheel Camper AEV rig, I was able to squeeze in a couple Sierra Nevada adventures. The first involved the truck camper in an off road 4×4 adventure where a friend and I traversed a steep valley of dirt roads, through creek crossings, got caught in a surprise storm and made a bit of a dramatic exit.
After the 1st dramatic trip, cravings were strong for some rest and relaxation while still I still had the Four Wheel pop-up truck camper on-hand. I decided to head back out from the Bay Area through Truckee, CA and into the High Sierra valley near Portola, CA. I took a chance in hopes of finding campgrounds somewhere that might be open despite the ongoing pandemic.
Luck was on my side, as the pictures included can attest and this 2nd half of the trip did not disappoint in terms of adventure either. I was treated to some EPIC views at Lake Davis that put me in a frenzy of picture and video taking. The weather upon my arrival was in the low 70’s and just about perfect! I explored one half side of the lake, driving the Four Wheel Camper rig past multiple campgrounds, hitting a dirt road, then eventually turning back.
