    Still have plenty of room left for more adventures. Plus I add a couple things that I either use or am part of. Anyone stand out to you?

    nice new 4runner, i'm going to scratch the hell out of the sides, sad,,,,solutions

    I can't blame the OP.... I love the look of a used/beat up vehicle that has been on multiple adventures.....but.... that vehicle probably has all the paint dulled and or coming off.....i can't picture actively going out to ruin the paint because of branches and such.... I kinda like the clean...

    So this will take some time and not the best option if you want to do trails often....but.....

They go out on trails, get up close to some pointy nature stuff, and...

    Tablet vs lap top

    I have both plus a large smart phone. It really depends on what you want to do with the item. For ease of use and quick access, your phone or tablet is the way to go.

    Ratchet / Sockets ...

    I used nothing but Snap-On the whole time in the military. My own personal tool collection was composed of nothing but Craftsman in the past. Now, I've realized that different tool sets for different tasks make life easier. The tool kit I have in my truck is composed of Craftsman, Dewalt...

    Solar Panel/Chargers

    With technology advancing in this field, what is the best way to go when it comes to solar panels and or chargers? I live in south florida and would like to get something I can use out on the trails or camping but still have handy in the event of hurricanes.

    flapping tie down ends, some inovative new solutions?

    I use either short velcro straps cinched tight or some duct tape.... i usually roll or fold the excess and put a layer round it.... the weight is usually heavy enough to prevent it from flapping in the wind. Maybe a zip tie depending on how long/heavy

    What boots do members wear

    Merrell boots have always worked for me. I like their Mid and Low designs. I haven't tried the High-tops yet though but I have always heard good things. Throughout my time in the military, I also wore Matterhorn boots.... very comfortable after broken in and the leather is very forgiving (if you...
