    Canada! New Brunswick and Nova Scotia then on to Winnipeg!

    Final preparations today we hit the road tomorrow morning. Route changes are in place as flooding along the St. John river have closed the main highway and many auxiliary roads as well. There are over 80 road closures in the province. Thankfully drier weather is coming though they are predicting...

    To Chainsaw or not to Chainsaw, that is the question

    I too carry a Silky big boy and a good SHARP ( if it doesn’t cut paper it’s not sharp) axe. Good price and a good way to save weight over a chainsaw and extra fuel.

    What is the last thing you bought and plan to buy?

    GAS, to go somewhere cool.

    To Chainsaw or not to Chainsaw, that is the question

    They might not be wearing chainsaw chaps but instead pants. In either case there are panels of loose woven Kevlar strands that are designed to stall the chain should it come in contact with your leg. If I am working all day with a saw then I wear the pants. But if I’m only going to be using it...

    To Chainsaw or not to Chainsaw, that is the question

    If you do decide to bring a chainsaw, for goodness sake get some chaps and some training! I almost cut my leg off with a saw. It happens so fast! 2 years later and my leg is not the same as it was.

    Canada! New Brunswick and Nova Scotia then on to Winnipeg!

    That would be awesome! Subscribed! No YouTube channel for us, I’ve got what you call a face fit for radio. I will be posting as often as I can though. Drive safe and keep the rubber side down.

    Best budget 4x4/SUV

    Look at the Nissan Xterra as well. They were available with a diesel in South America.

    Looking to explore the Atlanta Section of Canada.

    We’ll be doing half of Nova Scotia, most of Cape Breton and then the long drive west to Manitoba. Using ioverlander.com to plan camp spots. There are lots of great spots to see. You’ll love Newfoundland. The drive from Labrador to QC is long but worth it. My brother did it a few years ago...

    Rancho RS9000xl Adjustable Shocks

    I’ve been running the 9000s for a year now. I find them quite good. I had bilstein 5160 previously and had an upper eyelet fail while driving through town. I use the adjusters on the 9000s when transforming from DD mode to trip mode. Noticeable difference in handling.
