    Thanks for the heads up! I was just talking to a friend about that possible meet/training/camping event that you had mentioned before your globe-trotting adventure. Is that still happening? Do you need any help with anything if it is?

    I don't have one but I have seen a couple at Bargain Hunt for really cheap. You might want to call around and see if any near you have any in stock. Edit: Forgot to add, congrats on the house! What part of town did you move too?

    Welcome! We just started organizing meets so you haven't missed out on much. It seems like we get together about once a month to grab a beer. Now that the weather is warming up I think we will be meeting up for rides more often. If there is a trail or area you want to explore feel free to make a...

    Smittybilt made new changes on Overland Tent Annex

    That's great news. I am looking to getting the XL one soon so I am happy that they have the annex now.

    I found this local guy who makes skottles here in Nashville. http://forum.expeditionportal.com/threads/189517-cooking-skottles I emailed him and the next batch is spoken for but I thought you guys might be interested in the future. Here are some cooking videos using one: Fried Rice Steak and...

    It was awesome to see you guys tonight. Bval, once you're back from your epic adventure let's setup that mini trip. I think a lot of folks would be interested.

    Just got over to tailgate. We are in the side room at a long table with a baby and I am on crutches so look for us there if you decide to come!

    With that diesel, I think I know who will be pulling us out if we get stuck!

    E Even better! If you get lost just drive towards the gunfire.

    This is why I was leaning towards a hard-wired GMRS solution. I can have the main rig and then a set of handhelds to hand out if needed. These could also be used for on-site comms for people who like to wander a little after a camp site is setup.

    Okay, so flares it is. Next time on the dirt devil I will shoot a red for left turn and a yellow for right turn. I think orange for water crossings and maybe 2 reds for photos ops. jk but if we do it around the 4th we may be a hit.

    I have the link open for that CB right now! I think I am going to go with the MXT275 and then also that CB soon down the road. Would interference between the two be a concern? They seem to have similar boxes off the handheld units and I would probably mount them close together if I can. Edit...

    From what I understand, GMRS is like a long distance walkie talkie and can talk to FRS walkie-talkies so if someone else has GMRS and so do you then you have walkie-talkies (which is a really dumb term) on steriods. If I am wrong please correct me but thats my current understanding.

    What communication radio system are you guys using? I am looking at getting a system of some sort as cell service is not always great. I like the idea of gmrs as the distance is about the same as cb but the sound quality is better. Any suggestions? I don't think I am in need of HAM yet, it...

    I was browsing craigslist and came across this cool van. I know, if you are already on the site you dont need a rig but I figure I would share it anyway. Not really for offroading but cool for exploring the country. https://nashville.craigslist.org/cto/d/ford-adventure-van-camper/6519569464.html
