Re: Best budget real-world family BOV?

If you can, try getting a decent secondhand Mitsubishi Delica (I'm not sure what you call it in the US).

In a nutshell, it's a People mover (minivan), sitting atop a 4WD chassis. They're bloody capable, and you can easily fit five people and a few week's gear.

Re: Mini Bug-Out Box

Yeah, absolutely. unfortunately, I can't just use the small pockets of my bag anymore, mabye last year, when I was still in High School, but now? I've got my laptop, all my books (I'm doing Audio Engineering), various paraphernalia, etc. It's eased somewhat by my driving to-and-from school most days...

Re: Rear locker

I put one in an s10, it was great because I would punch it at lights and take off leaving cars and trucks beside me just spinning on the ice. I took off one day and turned the front wheels and the truck kept going straight it got too much traction in the rear. My current truck has the GM G80 delaye...

Re: Cheap, reliable 4x4?

Honestly? Do you want something that can pretty much go anywhere, or something that you can take off-road if need be? For the former, I suggest a decent mid-1990s Toyota Landcruiser. Up to you which series you get, but the 70 Series is by far the most reliable, and the essentially share the same ch...

Re: Mini Bug-Out Box

Gloves, heavy duty, preferably used & broken in. Insect repellent. Mosquito netting, that covers the head. An emergency "space" blanket. A watch cap, or facehood, to insulate your head (biggest area of heat loss). More first aid stuff: Topical antibiotic... I use Neosporin with pain reliever in it....

Re: Australians in the house FTW!

Yo! New to the forum and a Proud Aussie!

Personally, given the current state of our natural climate, what with bushfires, and floods, and drought, and just about everything else, I think a ZS chapter, or sup-chapters would be a fantastic idea!

Re: Suzuki Sidekick 1989 4x4

By Sidekick, I assume you mean what I called a Vitara here down under. Essentially, the Vitara never changed in chassis or body shape for a good ten years. If you want a manual (if you havent got one), Hayes produces a Vitara/Sierra (erm... Samurai, I believe) manual. As for the water pump, if you p...

Re: Knoob Kneeds Knew Knife

If you want something that you can easily deploy with one hand, that's not springed, you should try getting a balisong. Otherwise known as a butterfly knife. Look it up if you want. I've got one that's hand-made from when I last went to the Phillipines (I'm of Phillipine ancestory), unfortunately, t...

Hey Guys, How you all doing? Look, I've been going over things in my head for a while now, and since my city and the surrounding area (not to mention my country - Australia - at the moment) seems to be particularly disaster prone - Flooding, bushfires, hurricanes, etc., I've decided to make myself a...
