    What is your favorite overland/camp stove?

    We use a two burner camp chef stove in camp that uses propane. For a family of 4 it's easy to cook good meals. I still always pack my MSR whisperlite back pack stove on EVERY trip. I use white gas mostly and use it to just make coffee. However, if things got hairy, I can easily cook with it...

    Hanging Rock, NC and Ice

    This weekend the wife and I were blessed with 2.5 days kid free! The In-Laws were keen on watching the two boys so we took off! We loaded the dog in the Ford and hooked up our trailer with RTT and headed for Hanging Rock (4hrs from us). We decided to stay in the State Park due to convenience...

    Planning my first “beach” trip

    I was just at Ocrakoke over the new year. Sustained winds a few of the nights over 30mph. ToughStuff's RTT mounted on my M1101 held up flawlessly! The Red Drum bite was hot and we ate plenty of fresh fish. I live in Eastern NC so trips to the OBX are common place. I'll probably head to...

    Living on the coast means constant adventure! Always nice to leave the pavement... if only for an hour or two.

    Beach driving and camping

    The green heads and mosquitos dissipate after we have a few.good frosts. You can stay away from them on the lighthouse end of the island relatively easily because of ocean breezes even when they are thick. However, northern end of the Island can be very different during prime bug biting season. Lol.

    M416 trailer

    Keep the pintle hitch. It allows for more articulation when on the trail and is much more secure. A ball hitch is prown to popping off when articulated. I have a M1105 with a RTT.
