    OnX or Gaia

    Was getting ready to take the plunge with Gaia and they only offer the premium membership for 39 bucks. No more regular membership for 29 bucks.

    Finally solved the noise from my kayak racks

    I knew both of those tricks and tried both numerous times. the twisting made the noise even worse, and I also adjusted the rack at 3 different angles with no success. I think it came down to where that front strap lined up on the hull with this particular rack, but with the distance between the...

    Finally solved the noise from my kayak racks

    I'm sure other people may have figured this out, but I was mounting my kayak with a new set of racks I bought for the first time and for some reason while I was road testing theracks before my next trip, the noise was unbearable. I've racked this same kayak on top of this truck before, and on my...

    Getting on the 395 from the Bay Area

    How much was the entrance fee? I don't mind paying the fee if it shaves some drive time for me as oppossed to going up 108 and coming back down. How was the traffice passing through Yosemite? Was it a S show or bearable? Thanks in advance.

    3 kid friendly Overland Rig

    I found myself in a similar position last year. My wife nad I were childless for about 12 years and when it was just the two of us, we were perfectly fine taking either her 2 door JK, or my midsize truck with a moderate lift and lockers if we were going out for more than a few days. Once our son...

    Under Armor advice

    This is just from my own personal experience and what I've seen on the trail, but if you have to start off piece by piece, I would suggest protecting the fuel tank first. That's the softest thing under there, and can get cracked easier than your pumpkin, or your oil pan.

    Auxiliary battery issues

    Just a suggestion, but try running the ground to the starting battery. Frames are heavily coated to prevent rust so no matter how hard you have run a brush wheel or wire brush or sandpaper on the frame, you may not be getting proper contact to ground. I don't know how you have the wires grounded...

    mail service for lengthy trips

    Not sure if you have neighbors nearby, but we have asked neighbors to collect our mail during long trips. I've also had younger adult relatives and friends to house sit for me. It gives me peace of mind that my house doesn't look abandoned for weeks on end. They usually live in apartments and...

    Roof Racks

    I have an F-150, similar roof line, similar cab, and I went with a set of Thule Aeroblades. I put everything from kayaks, to roof baskets, to ladders and lumber up there no problem. They are super modular, can be taken off and installed in under 5 minutes and I never worry that they won't do the...

    Looking for trail toilet ideas

    I've had this Dometic cassette toilet for quite a few years that I purchased from a Boat supply company called West Marine. My wife and I orignally bought it for our boat when we would go on all day/night Sturgeon trips. We would always dig holes and at first I never brought it because I liked...

    Chairs, lets sit down and talk about this.

    Every year I end up buying those basic collapsable canvas chairs you see at the local sporting good store or wal-mart, but I always manage to break them after the first summer of camping. I wanted to get a high quality chair that was still simple, easy to pack, and didn't have a bunch of...

    GMRS installation

    The best way to hook that up is to take the time to go through the firewall and connect directly to the battery. This will give you the cleanest connection and power which is important if you want to optimize radio performance. Make sure to buy a little inline fuse holder that you can run on the...
