    New bigger grill/griddle

    Recently bought the small griddle for my 1 burner stove that stays in the RTT Trailer. I liked it so much that I looked at getting one for my Mr. Heater Basecamp 2 burner propane stove that stays in my Winnebago Drop trailer. (rarely do we cook in the trailer) And yes, Partner Steel makes 4...

    Partner Steel Griddle

    Just arrived. PS griddles come in 3 sizes and this is the small one made for the 1 burner Partner Steel stove. Size is 9"x12", just right for cooking bacon. It has a 1 1/4" lip all the way around which is plenty to contain eggs, pancakes, or grease runoff. It is constructed of 1/4" thick...

    Gerber StrongArm fixed blade

    I've had my StrongArm for 4 years now and during that time it has become my go-to backpacking and camp knife. Now my Cold Steel and Falkniven fixed blades just languish in my desk. I can hear the comments already..."but it's a Gerber". Yeah that's right, but a darn tough Made in USA Gerber. It...

    New kitchen doober

    Had a 1 ltr kettle but it was always a few ounces shy of a full pot for drip coffee. And always had to boil a second pot to make oatmeal. So, we got the 1.8 ltr GSI Halulite Kettle and now it'll be a 1pot boil for breakfast. You can fit a 280g isobutane canister and Pocket Rocket stove for...

    Mardi Krawl 2019

    Just got back from this year's Mardi Krawl at Hawk Pride Mtn in north Alabama. Louisiana Land Krewsers did an excellent job once again. Much improved weather from last years Krawl and guessing around a 100 folks.

    Sierra Designs Whitney DriDown Hoodie

    Just got in on a Mass Drop group buy on this jacket, with a normal retail of $169 and group buy for $80. Total weight 19oz with 800 fill down. On first look fit and finish is on par with North Face and Patagonia. Reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and I think this was MassDrop's 3rd group...

    Just in time for Mardi Krawl

    Rago brackets and ARB Awning finally installed on the GX. With only a 20% chance of rain, after last years deluge at MK, I was taking no chances and made sure the ARB was ready for action. Hopefully it will remain undeployed...BUT just in case, ya know what I mean. By the way, The Rago mounts...

    Windbreakers

    Windbreakers are an outdoor item that has just about disappeared in recent years. Good ones are hard to come by, but their usefulness hasn't been replaced with fleece and down. Sometimes you just need something to tame the chill in the air, or to keep "the hawk" from kickin arse. Well here...

    Cooper AT3 4S

    NF Shooting Range

    We have one about 2 1/2 from the house in the Bankhead NF on the edge of the Sipsey Wilderness. Range is out to 200 yards with posts set at 25, 50, 100, and 200 yards. (I think) There are 4 or 5 shooting stations with benches and seats on swivels. Not fancy but basic and functional. You can...

    First camping trip with the GX

    We camped at Brushy Pond on the edge of the Sipsey Wilderness. GX didn't even know the Lowe's trailer was back there.(19.4 mpg towing) It was very cold and wet, but we had plenty of "antifreeze" and a great fire with the Solo Bonfire. Thinking of going from 13" to 15" wheels this spring but need...

    GX first steps...

    Relocated the fridge/drawer cabinet from the FJ into the GX470. A little paint and into the GX like a glove. Before, in the FJ. After, in the GX. Now, just got to figure out the lash points to secure it, reinstall the fridge slide and the ARB. Also replaced the Pirelli's that were with it...

    Any overlanding access challenges during the shutdown?

    For instance, are the trails/roads open on BLM land, National Monuments, National recreation areas? Only federal land near me is the Talladega NF and the trails were open this past weekend, both foot and vehicular. Have any of you guys had to alter your overlanding travel plans so far? Impact...

    Change in direction to Lexus GX470

    I'd just gotten the FJ about where I wanted it, but...towing my trailer was marginal, at best. I felt that the FJ was gutting it out to pull the Winnebago Drop and it really needed a V8 to do a proper job. I considered a crew cab F150 and Tundra, both of which would've been more than adequate...

    Just in time for cold weather

    Arrived today. Solo Bonfire. My first experience with the Bonfire was at the Mardi Crawl this March(?). Temps were in the high 30's, super windy and it rained non stop the whole weekend. Miserable conditions. But the guys camped across from us had a Solo Bonfire. The rain could not put it...

    New Partner Steel Stove (very different)

    I've been wanting a Cook Partner stove for a while, but, what I really wanted was compact and durable. Well now I have it...the Partner one burner stove. It's a compact 12 1/2" wide x 9 1/2" deep x 3" tall, but still extremely sturdy at about 7lbs. OK4WD has them for $209. It's going with me on...

    Your Overlanding Style

    I've researched and debated, to myself, by spending wisely how best to equip for overlanding trips. For a while now, I've been conflicted. I went back and forth between truck camper, Tear Drop trailer, trailer w/RoofTop Tent, and on and on. I was trying to solve multiple situations with the...
