    Meet & Greet and Camp in Mesa AZ.

    It was a great time even with the rain. Usery park was a great place for it being close by and easy to get to. Last I heard the group sites are closed due to Covid. I’ll have to make some phone calls. We had a few other spots but those are closed because of the fires.

    Question for Subaru owners

    My daughter is looking to buy a 2017 Outback and we live on the edge of the desert outside of Phoenix. We have all kinds of desert creatures by our house that love to chew on wires on cars. We had a lot of problems with a VW (had to get it towed three times because it wouldn’t start). VW used...

    What CB radio would you recommend

    Not sure I understand your comment “not ready to get into that yet.” About GMRS. Get a Midland Micro Mobile and its plug and play. Sure you have to get a license that’s $7.00 per year but other than that it plug in the coax cable on the magnetic antenna that it comes with, plug in 12v cigarette...

    overland expo west 2020

    FYI the North Rim of the GC doesn't reopen till May 15th, that is when Expo starts. Last year there was still a lot of snow there in May from what I recall. All depends on how good of snow fall we have this year. So far it's been good. Might be worth a call to the park to make sure...

    My take on a bed rack - now finished

    Why not use square or rectangle tube? Some 1X3 16 ga tube would look good and be fairly light weight. And much easier to attach stuff to than round tube. Todd

    Hiking around Phoenix/Mesa/Apache Jct

    Wind cave is in Usery park, Wave cave is out by Peralta I believe. Hieroglyphic Trail by Gold canyon is a cool easy trail. Rattle snakes shouldn't be a problem this time of year. In the summer there are buzz worms all over out there. There was a tough spot on Bulldog a few weeks ago on a...

    Before you buy Solar watch this

    Wow could that intro be any longer? Since I got my Redarc dc to dc charger my solar panels have come out NEVER. Only if we stay in one place for a few days and that isn’t often. Wish I would have had it before I invested in solar. Todd

    Faux overlander

    Not sure why it matters. Maybe he likes to build out his rig and that’s his hobby. We had a guy at our gun club that loved to reload. The real only reason he shot his guns was to create brass to reload. Reloading was his hobby. We didn’t call him out on that. Why should we? I brought him brass...

    Trying to figure out what overlanding is?

    Overlanding is when you spend $40,000+ on a vehicle, put another $15,000 into wheels, bumpers, winch, lights. Get a $30,000 all decked out trailer and head out to your favorite dispersed camp spot and find a redneck family there with with a 1975 Jayco popup camper pulled by a 1989 Dodge Caravan...
