    Bc to ontario, or how i spent $850 on gas in 2 weeks.

    So i just got back to the okanagan from a trip to the motherland in manitoba. Got a chance to explore 3 different and cool areas. The first pics are from the south boarder road in turtle mountain. This was a cool trail. I cut a few logs but since i was on my own, turned around at a...

    home brew spare tire mount

    Ive seen something like this for $100. This is a work in progress and im into it for $20 and 15 minutes. Gonna cut some slots for the strap and go to a 2" strap. The nuts on the mount grip the tire very well and this thing isnt going to move.

    bbq?

    How many of you bring a bbq? Even a mini one. I currently do but feel it could be left home. Unless we have a fire ban on. Just curious if anyone else does too. Feel free to vote and/or comment.

    If you are looking for a way to navigate, heres another option that works well for canadians. The free viewranger app has added easy links to backroad mapbook basemaps. Not bad price either.

    fj cruiser rear door

    Some stuff always comes with me. Makes sense to keep it handy. Mollie racks are cool but dont fit my budget of "close to free". Hence the DIY. I used quick fists for the axe, saw, and the small upper mount that frequently carries a fishing rod or flashlight, but now holds my snow...
