The Trip

We stayed with our Unimog buddy Norm at his place in Clark Fork, ID.  Due to a personal mobility issue, Norm has decided to sell his Unimog and 2.5 ton trailer, so the data on the truck and the photos are below.  Truck photos are interspersed with other photos, so look at entire page if interested in the truck and/or trailer.  If you are interested in the rig, contact Norm Becker directly via email at
