I've been on a few like that in NH. Coming off Jefferson Notch rd, which was dirt, and crossing base road to Clinton rd. which ws paved. Clinton rd was horrible! Its much better since a section of it washed out one Spring. Smoothed most of the boulders right away.
This is targeted directly at the same people who are still driving old Rangers. They are everywhere! A small pickup that would be easy to drive around town, seats 5, has more backseat room than the 5g Ranger. For those who want or need a small pickup and think the 5g Ranger is too big. 40MPG...
you have about 1400 pounds you can add to a Ranger before you're over the GVWR. That includes passengers and fuel. 8.3 pounds to the gallon for water and 6.3 for fuel.
15 gallons of water = 125 lbs
23 gallons of fuel = 145
2 adults = 400
GFC camper 200 to 225
recovery gear (wild ass guess here)...
Didn't realize there was a Maine thread. I'm living in Biddeford, for now. I'm ready to retire and travel. Building up my 2020 Ranger to live out of come the end of tourist season. Looking to get a cargo trailer to convert at some point. Selling the Condo and become a nomad. With this crazy...
I have a built in wifi hotspot in my truck. $200 a year prepaid with ATT for unlimited/22 GB a month, then its throttled. I can get unimited plan with Google Fi for ~$50 a month per phone, so that's three plans, ~ 66GB a month/unlimited for alll my streaming needs.
Share away Dave.
I was wondering about the covers. It was mentioned once upon a time. As soon as Go Fast builds my camper, it will be covered, better, anyway. It was really hard for me to drill holes in a 10 month old truck.
Finally got it all installed today. Coincidently, A friend of mine posted an overland build her husband did for a customer of his. He had a red Pullkkitchen in it. I guess there are at least two in Maine, now.
My GF always buys backups of everything. When she opens a new bottle of Ketchup, she makes a note and buys its replacement, same with toothpaste, and everything else in the house. Hell, she has an emergency frozen pizza in the freezer. She buys the blue 12 packs of Charmin, 6 rolls go upstairs...
Hasn't changed much from the '80's when I was using them to ride around all the logging roads that criss-cross Maine. Invaluable tool. Funny, back then we called it "touring" as, we were "on tour". Put a lot of offroad miles on a '78 toyota Corolla and an '87 two-wheel drive Ford Ranger. Friends...
$30? try $129
I'm OK with a luggable loo or a cathole. Charmin blossoms and discarded Kleenex really chap my ass.
