    OB Approved Camping with Firearms

    I went off for a minute. Great discussion overall. With regard to what I said earlier, camping in the middle of nowhere and having to use a firearm for self defense would be quite a different situation than a crowded public area or even your home in the middle of the night. Even if it is an...

    OB Approved Camping with Firearms

    I couldn't agree more. "Carrying a firearm means you lose every argument". There is a great deal of maturity and training required to responsibly carry a firearm every day. If someone cuts you off at the gas station and you think your gun is going to solve the problem, you probably shouldn't...

    OB Approved Becoming a Skilled Spotter

    Some of my friends are the best spotters in the business. I've got an FJ80. Granted, a well built rig, but still a school bus on tight trails with BIG rocks. I have gotten my rig into places I would have never attempted (unscathed) with their help. A good spotter can make a world of difference.

    OB Approved Camping with Firearms

    As a CCW holder, I am locked and loaded every day. That being said, I also live in the great state of Nevada which is fairly laid back on carrying laws. We are an "open Carry" state. I can go to a gun store, buy a pistol, wait while they make a phone call for the background check and once...

    What was your first vehicle you took exploring.

    My first truck.... 1969 F-100 2WD. I used to bash that thing down dirt roads until it hurt. Very similar to the picture but lightly more rusted/dented. Ahhh to be 16 again....

    Wanted** rear fj80 bumper and roof rack

    FWIW I built my roof rack for about $100. Basket on Craigslist for $60 and the cross-bars with gutter clamps for $35 used at "Play it again sports" which is a used sporting goods store here locally. I was in the same boat and couldn't believe how expensive this stuff is.

    Worst stuck

    This was last year in Hollister, Ca. My old FJ60. Group said follow the leader. I was the leader, nobody followed. Got pulled out backwards.

    Sonora Rally Trip 2016

    It was lifted, not sure how much. He did mention it had 4 1/2" of travel. Inside was gutted behind the front seats and had spare tires and all gear mounted nicely.

    @stringtwelve Just a vacation. My aunt and uncle have a house in Puerto Nuevo but we just stopped there for a visit on the way home. My long term goal is to build further south on the Sea of Cortez side.

    Christmas Break = 1500 mi

    Hello all, Thought I would post some pics of my recent trip from Garnderville, NV (Home) to Ensenada, Mexico. Left home at 1:00 pm on Dec. 24th in the middle of the biggest storm we have had to date. The first leg was 200 miles and I didn't see pavement for 135 of it. Beautiful snow...
