    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Ha!! You’ve made my point, you get it.. there is no definitive definition of “elitist” . The minimalist I know lives in a 500 sq ft home out on 40 acres, raises his own food, is an Overlanders, drives a new 4Runner, has no television, and he’s a nuclear physicist. He has rejected the rat race...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Hmmmm, I know quite a few minimalists that are quite the eletists in their own right.

    Plow Disc Cooking

    Cmon, beating my head against the wall can be fun.. I taught my girls, “say what you mean and mean what you say” they hated that as teenagers, buy now they are 40+ and thank me for it repeatedly..

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    This reminds me of a gal out on elephant hill years ago. Her husband had just put a large dent in the drivers side rear quarter panel of their brand new LR3. She could be heard screaming at him from far off. I didn’t realize what I was hearing until the small group pulled up for lunch at...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Hey now, I model HO trains, it’s fun to do. In the hobby we call the eletists “ rivet counters”

    Plow Disc Cooking

    We always plowed then disced. Harrows had discs but I’d never seen the two terms intertwined. Plow, Disc, Harrow, ( spring tooth or disc) .. sometimes there was a disc in front of the plow for cutting the soil, that disc was not concave/convex and it may have been called a plow disc. Then...

    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    Whew boy, I don’t even know where to begin with these statements and I certainly don’t want to come off sounding like a dick, however, sir, uphill traffic always has right of way. I’m not sure where you have learned your trail etiquette but your statement is flat out wrong. Uphill traffic...

    Locating good overlanding

    Here's the thing, as much as it may not be approved of by many folks, there simply are not any "overlanding" routes anywhere east of the Mississippi river. There are however a handful of places left to go "four wheelin", which, if we aren't careful will soon be closed down. ( think tread...

    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    To answer your question, yes, it is peoples terrible driving habits. I see a lot of folks complain about a certain brand of tire, ( any brand, pick one) that has horrible performance in adverse conditions- rain, snow, patchy ice, etc... hey, if ya drive like an idiot you’re gonna rate any tire...

    Plow Disc Cooking

    C’mon guys, there is no such thing as a “plow disc” it’s either a plow or a disc. True, I’m a bit a-/- retentive but not let’s slaughter the definition of things.. here are plows, an old walk behind drawn by horse, mule or oxen, and two modern plows, an enormous 6 bottom reversible plow and a...

    Bilstein 5100s vs OME OME90021

    I cannot compare the two as I have never used Billstien. Why should I experiment with another brand when the OMEs are tried and true? After 120,000 miles i thought it might be time for new shocks. I put the new OMEs on only to discover that the old one were still good. I’m running the heavy...

    Any lawyers? Can a dealership do this to me?

    This entire scenario, though unbelievable and I’m having a difficult time wrapping my head around it, is one of the multiple reasons I will never again purchase any vehicles manufactured, marketed and sold by any one of the old “ big three”. Back in the fall of 2008 we put a 500 dollar deposit...

    When does cost of a vehicle to build matter to you?

    True, people think I’m nuts for trusting a 23 year old vehicle, it’s all just about our wants and opinions..

    When does cost of a vehicle to build matter to you?

    Here’s the thing TJDon, it all depends on how much money one chooses to spend for vehicles over the course of their lifetime.. very much like boots, 300 for a pair of Asolos or Redwings, that’ll last for 10 years and more, or 100 for a pair that will last for 2 years or less— more power to...

    When does cost of a vehicle to build matter to you?

    Simply not true—new rigs require the same maintenance as a old rig. Parts on new rigs begin to fail when they are just out of warranty, unless you are suggesting that one should always buy a new vehicle as soon as their current vehicle is out of warranty..

    What is your Overlanding Pet Peeve?

    My biggest pet peeve is groups of people or convoys in the back country bringing the rat race along with them.. We enjoy the solitude of going out alone. With groups comes, noise, trash, loud talking, and general idiocy.

    When does cost of a vehicle to build matter to you?

    Unless you drive a Toyota.. over the past 7 years I have spent in PM repairs, ( heater core, radiator, valve stem seals, front and rear main seals, oil pump seal, power steering pumps ) less than 5,000 dollars, the cost of vehicle was 10k, regular maintenance doesn’t count as new vehicles...

    When does cost of a vehicle to build matter to you?

    Ok, great question. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, only my experience. Circa 1976 I bought my first Toyota Landcruiser. Being very young and very stupid I proceeded to beat the hell out of it. I had no clue what a PM was, let alone servicing it on a regular basis, but it just kept...

    Congratulations to Micheal & Cory

    This was for Corrie and Micheal, just a nod of congratulations on a very well done job... It started as an idea, they worked their behinds off to make it happen for all of us. In four short years it is what it is. Their 80 series in an ad in the "National Geographic" of Overlanding publications...
