    Ham test

    Thanks for the info, I’d put it on hold figuring no way for in person exams right now.

    RIGD UltraSwing Hitch Carrier (Multi Fit)

    Just an FYI but that’s an option with the Wilco as well

    US Northwest June 2020 WABDR - Washington Backcountry Discovery Route

    Ditto - surprising how much nicer it makes any trip

    RotoPax Vs. Jerry Cans

    It seems to me it should be equivalently priced to a RotoPax - which is already expensive enough. I’m pretty sure I can replicate the concept by simply dropping my OEM spare chain & threading it through the center of a RotoPax. I'm probably going to fashion an aluminum plate to go below - though...

    RIGD UltraSwing Hitch Carrier (Multi Fit)

    I’ll be interested in any responses you get. You might want to look at the Wilco Solo Hitchgate as well

    RotoPax Vs. Jerry Cans

    It seems hard to imagine they would want it inside the vehicle. While I can see that rear-ending a Jerry can is going to be bad for everyone involved - inside the cab would be worse. I bought some RotoPax because my Mom will often carry them inside & I had more faith in that than her method of...

    Benchmark Atlas

    It's also worth noting that there are countless "messenger" bags that fit the paper atlases for $5 or so at Goodwill. My "trip planning bag" is just such a marketing item my wife had lying around the house. Fits my DeLorme & Benchmark Atlases, Roadside Geology Books, etc. plus pen and other...

    WA BDR

    I did Sections 2 & 3 repeatedly last summer. The only area of concern that I would note was the Beehive Washouts kind of mid section 3. We were there at dusk on a semi-muddy September day so I imagine it is better when dry. I have some vids on YouTube (RainGoat Pathfinder) but the quality is...

    US Northwest June 2020 WABDR - Washington Backcountry Discovery Route

    Thanks for the referral. I've run 3 multiple times and half of 2 a couple times but still, it's always a nice relaxing lunch vid - didn't know Expedition Overland had done it

    2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Modifications

    WOW!! Is that a failure in a 5th Gen 4Runner? That is pretty unbelievable - I'm shocked to see it.

    On Call w/ Chris Episode 02: Trauma vs First Aid

    @El Solis, I was wondering if you could address your recommendations between two tourniquets in your recommended kit: COMBAT APPLICATION TOURNIQUET (C-A-T Gen7)(CAT TQ) & SOF TACTICAL TOURNIQUET WIDE (SOFT-TW TQ)? I heard your recommendation for CAT TQ Gen 7 over the RATs secondary to...

    Overland Bound 3-in-1 Kit Discussion

    Looking forward to it! You're OB input really spurred me to readdress my FAKs as I haven't really addressed them post kids. You're compartmentalization scheme - while ridiculously simple, is something I just never thought about. A great idea! Keep up the great work. I really think it is a...

    On Call w/ Chris Episode 02: Trauma vs First Aid

    Great Video!! I really appreciate the emphasis on the basics. Gloves & bandages - you really can't have too many. I find people get caught up on treatment rather than stabilization and transport. I like how your videos have taken a "how will this effect your management" approach and eliminated...

    Recommendations for a trauma kit bag

    As a medical professional I would say your approach is totally appropriate. I think the most difficult thing to adequately express to the general public is that the goal is really to stabilize and transport, not treat and cure. If you watch Dr. Solis' trauma video you will note his is a...

    Overland Bound 3-in-1 Kit Discussion

    Dr. Solis' recommendations are excellent and practical. Most FAKs attempt to dazzle with gadgets and what amounts to essentially pointless variety. His recommendations are practical, purposeful and guided by real world usage and ability to effect outcome. I strongly recommend his Trauma Kit...

    Overland Bound 3-in-1 Kit Discussion

    While entertaining, having your blood type available will ultimately serve little real world purpose. O Neg blood (universal donor) is kept on hand for emergent hemorrhage events and no U.S. or Canadian institution is going to transfuse you with anything other than that without performing a type...

    How do you carry your recovery boards?

    I think the beauty of recovery boards is they’re $60. I’ve wanted lockers for 30 years but at about $1,000 that’s a whole different ballgame. I’d put tires & X-Bulls as the 2 first things to get. Even a lift is a luxury that you might not need with good line selection. These recovery boards are...
