Re: Best bags for a Sawyer Squeeze gravity system?

I would also recommend the MSR dromedary bags as they're legitimately durable (for a water bladder) and there are guys in Australia in the ADV bike world who transport fuel in them across deserts. On the subject of gravity systems. I ran one for a couple of years as a more base camp style system whi...

Prinsu Designs Cabrack. Recovery boards and other recovery gear will be mounted here along with my ARB awning when needed. If you're doing a vehicle build I'd highly suggest an awning of some type. Having shade or a dry place to cook or do other duties outside of the vehicle is underrated. https://u...

Join some of the overland communities on facebook, there are plenty of people overlanding with rigs similar to yours and they know all about who makes the best brand specific stuff. As for swing out rears, I wish I had gone that route so I could run a spare minimum on my Taco. I have a higher cleara...

Thanks! I didn't want to spent this much, but it was a great deal with all options and the bed cap, which I need to sell! I can't wait to get a rooftop tent going.

Dragon's BOV Build Thread

So in July of '16 I saw a 2013 Toyota Tacoma double cab Limited with long bed at the local dealership's tent sale. I checked it out and fell in love with the price. I wanted a short bed off road, but this came fully loaded and $6k under value. So, I pulled the trigger on it and have since been worki...

Re: Trip AAR: The best plans never survive first contact…

Re: The Prepper Obsession With Clothes

I'm just not sure on the topic in general, certainly I have a pretty set image in my head when I think of a "grey man" prepper, and have seen plenty out and about, but I can't say the costuming is any more distinct or prevalent then any other tribe I see, from Harley riders to climbers to hackysack...

Re: Ticks

It is kind of gross and ticklish to watch them wriggle around before dying, but growing up when we found one us we always coated them with clear nail polish. Since they "breathe" through their carapace, they suffocate and die pretty quickly. When they die that way, their little mandibles go slack, ...

Wow nice setup! I gotta ask, how do you like the Snugpak Ionosphere? I'm in the market for a good single person tent and that is one of my options. Thanks, a lot has changed since then actually. It's a great 1 man tent for the size and weight. I just threw it on the scale in complete form, no weigh...

Installed OME 2" lift and had my TRD Pro wheels mounted with BFG TA KO2's. Also ordered my Pelfreybilt armor, but that will be a few weeks before I get that in.

Re: Elberlestock packs, Are They Worth It?

Short answer. No. I've owned 3. Go with a Kifaru, you won't regret it. Register on Rokslide and the Kifaru forums and find what you're looking for design and size wise in a Duplex Frame and you will never look back. The Eberlestock's biggest problems I found, was lackluster, uncomfortable, and very ...

Moab hit a lot of points I would but substitute his suggestion of the USGI bivy and go with the USMC improved bivy. I found mine on ebay for $55, has a bugnet built in, and is a LOT lighter.

Re: Russian ambassador assassinated in Ankara, Turkey

These weren't pictures, these are stills from video. Watch the video, funker 530 had it up, definitely real. You can see the rounds passing through his body, dusturbing his clothes, ie tie being propelled away from his body before he ever reacts.
