    Hello from Milton ON

    Hi, nice to meet you. Timmins is a nice place. Last year I did logging road trip from Sudbury to Timmins and camped on crown land.

    Hello from Milton ON

    Hey Darn3000, Nice to meet you. So far I have not had any issues with my Rubicon. I've been to few trips, absolutely no issues climbing up or going down the trails. Rubicon gearing and higher clearance does help as well. It is bone stock, no lift or re-gear and stock 33" tires. I've slept...

    Getting overland ready...frugally

    It has been a while since I update this thread. So here we go.... I built a slider kitchen in the back of my jeep. It was a DIY project, took me a weekend to plan and finish. It was built on the driverside, behind the 1/3 seat. The design is pretty simple. Top of the slider is the two burner...

    Little buddy heater??

    I was looking at the Buddy heater but decided to go with the 5KW diesel heater/furnace. Fuel consumption was one of the major factor in my decision. From what I understand a 2.5 gallon tank lasts for 6-8 days on low setting. It requires a 12V battery to power the fan and thermostat. It can be...

    GoalZero Light A Life

    GoalZero Lighthouse 400 and the GoalZero USB Fan will be my next purchases for sure. They are quite expensive in Canada. However having spent a lot of money on many lighting equipment, over the years, I wouldn’t want to wast my money on any other camp light equipment, specially if they are not...

    GoalZero Light A Life

    I always liked, and wanted to have, the GoalZero LaL 350. It is a well engineered and well made light. I also love the back story. My camping power setup is based on Jackery 500. I always wondered if LaL 350 would work with my Jackery. Yesterday I received my own LaL350 and it does work with...

    Getting overland ready...frugally

    I like bins, but the problem with bins is that if they are too deep or too wide, things start to get lost in them as well :grinning:

    Getting overland ready...frugally

    Recently I went on a 6 day camping/exploration and overlanding trip to Northern Ontario. I had a blast. Lake Superior views from Trans Canada Highway are breath taking. We camped on shores of Lake Superior and explored many trails/logging and back roads. This was my first extended trip. My...

    Little buddy heater??

    I was looking into it recently. CO/CO2 is a concern with any heater, however I found that the diesel heater (2-8kw) does not suffer from CO problem. After watching plenty of video, i think it is a better option for camp heating. I will buy one soon and test it out.
