    Carry Bag For Cast Iron Griddle?

    I picked a Lodge cast iron reversible griddle/grill last year. I'd like to have a bag of some sort to store it in while in the kitchen box, to keep it from being scratched and/or keep the oil of off other items. Some time ago, I saw someone making carry bags for cast iron stuff, but I didn't...

    Another RTT question - mold/mildew?

    In an environment where it rains constantly during the winter, how long can an RTT be stored after being put away wet before having to worry about mold or mildew? I know airing out as soon as possible is optimal, but after returning home from a trip, it might be weeks before the weather allows...

    Recommendations For Breathable Rain Jacket For Hiking?

    Here on the wet side of the PNW, it rains an awful bloody lot. I've had a lot of weatherproof/waterproof jackets over the years which have served me well for normal wear and activity, but I've never had anything that's great for hiking. All the features that keep the rain out, also tend to...

    Stanley Base Camp Cook Set For Four

    A few months back I bought the Stanley Base Camp Cook Set For Four, and was finally able to try it out on my recent trip to the coast. The set includes a 3.7 qt pot with vented lid, a 7.25 inch frying pan, spatula, serving spoon, 4 22 oz. bowls, 4 6 inch plates, 4 sporks, a cutting board, a...

    Ka-Bar Tactical Spork

    I bought a pair of these Ka-Bar Tactical Sporks a while back, thinking that even though they're obviously a novelty, they might actually be useful. Spoiler alert: they're not. They are made of plastic, and as such, the knife doesn't cut well at all. Didn't cut chicken, didn't cut steak. The...

    Stanley Mountain Vacuum Coffee System

    Prior to heading out on my last trip, I picked up the Stanley Mountain Vacuum Coffee System. I wanted the 1.1 quart, but it's apparently been discontinued, and I wasn't able to find one anywhere. They are still making the 17 oz., so that's what I got. It's a really cool little unit. When...

    RTT vs. Wind

    I've pretty much convinced myself I want a trailer of some type. I keep going back and forth between something like a Turtleback or a teardrop (something like this). The main reason I'm considering a teardrop is not having to worry about the wind. Last fall, we encountered an unexpected storm...

    Lost Files -- Help Needed

    Short version: I need help with recovering lost photos off of an SD card. Long version: I returned from a trip a few days ago and began to transfer the photos from the card to my computer. If it matters, the card is a SanDisk Ultra 30MB/s 16GB. I plug that into a Kodak card reader, which...

    Adventure Is Necessary Banner sticker?

    I thought I'd throw this up as a poll, just to try it. Never posted a poll before. My wife had an idea the other day that I really like. In addition to the Overland Bound banner sticker that we already have, how about an Adventure Is Necessary banner sticker? Would there be any interest in...

    Molalla River Corridor, OR

    Did a quick overnighter last night along the Molalla River, south of Table Rock. I took the opportunity to experiment with a few things while I was out. The first was making cotton ball and Vaseline fire starters. Made up a batch in the morning before leaving. They work really well, and...

    Aftermarket Thermometer?

    I've been looking for a decent thermometer for outside temps to mount in my rig. I'm running into two problems: A) most search results are cheap junk, and 2) the sensor leads are typically so short that the sensor has to be mounted in a place in which engine temperature or ambient heat from...

    ARB Front Bumper?

    My wife has a 2002 Jeep Wrangler, and she likes the ARB winch bumper. I'm concerned that the recovery points look a bit thin. I've noticed that some ARB bumpers are thin like this, while others look thicker. I'm looking for feedback from people who have experience with the thin ones. Doesn't...

    I'm sure a lot of us will have them. Post 'em up, show us what you got!

    Little Red Campfire?

    Has anyone tried the Little Red Campfire? We are considering this as an alternative during campfire bans in areas where propane fires are still permitted. Thoughts?

    Greetings from Oregon

    Greetings one and all. I've been lurking around the forums for about a month, and checking out some of the videos. I liked what I've seen, so decided to join. I'm looking forward to participating in the community. I've been camping on and off for most of my life, and enjoy off-roading...
