    Get Over it!!! (Overland Humor :-)

    Did they seriously get rid of metal rakes in the US?

    Bear proofing?

    Yeah, I have ZERO experience with grizzlies and wouldn't know what to do. Lol I would likely be over cautious...

    Bear proofing?

    Always good to know how the local wildlife are. I know my area.... But would reach out to locals and get the 411 on any problem bears.

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Yeah, I'm not geotagging everywhere I go and sharing locations either. If that offends someone... That's on them. There's a difference between sharing a love of the outdoors and telling everyone about your favourite spot(s). I spend a fair bit of blood, sweat, tears, and yes money... To get...

    Bear proofing?

    Yep. Good here. We just "limited out" on lake trout yesterday, gutted and filleted them last night. Threw the fillets in my ARB freezer (it's set to be our deep freeze). We burned the guts and carcasses with a super heated fire (used my air pump for the air mattress plugged into my...

    Bear proofing?

    I've seen plenty of trailcam pics from bear hunter friends that prove they are out and about at night a LOT. Lol.

    I don't understand why someone feels the need to pipe up and put their 2 cents in with a product that a person is fully happy with.... and try to tell them they are "wrong".... just baffles the crap outta me... lol.

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Wow.... I've never encountered that attitude. We're always debating prices on thinngs and give each other a headsup if there is a sale. I'm always trying to find the cheaper way of doing something.... but have also come to the realization that paying for a quality item sometimes saves money...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    It seems like I'm seeing more and more people talking about this. Are people more defensive these days about what they have and/or don't have? Has social media made it look like everyone ELSE has it so much better than us? I'm quite comfortable when I get out and go camping... like the saying...

    Bluedriver…. an OBDII scanner that will read and clear everything

    Torque pro app does the same. I bought a bluetooth OBDII dongle and it stays plugged in all the time. On the FJ the port is in a place that doesn't expose the OBDII to my legs. I've put it on a few other vehicles to help out with diagnostics and clearing codes and some have their ports in a...

    Big wheels small tires or small wheels big tires?

    My ride quality increased when I went up a tire size and switched to an E rated tire. You are correct in that the rating no longer reflects LAYERS... but it does reflect toughness. From my experience... helping others change their tires and/or waiting while someone was changing their C rated...

    Tolerance

    I've got Goodyear Duratracs.... and love 'em. Best AT tire for winter in my opinion (can't beat a true snow tire, but best AT).

    Tolerance

    Be happy... but not too happy.... might offend someone. Got it! :sunglasses:

    Why?

    No. I've wheeled with all makes and models.... But if someone wants to wheel with a similarly capable vehicle (perceived or otherwise) that's their prerogative. Join a club if you are lonely. That's what I did when first getting into the hobby. Don't blame others for your lack of companionship.

    Why?

    It's mostly about compatibility like has been said. You won't find yourself too welcome among adventure bikes because you won't be able to go where they go. The same (or similar) can be said about various makes and models. It sounds like you are being a bit too defensive... be happy with what...
