    2018 Expo East Caravan Thread

    Ok, well... nothing went as planned, leaving very much later than I wanted to. Headed down, in about an hour, so I will see you all down there tomorrow. Early AM. Taking 91-84-81 for the main route down. Expect to be in Arrington around 2 am... sigh.

    2011 Ford(s) - Project Underdog

    Holy CRAP! Overland Expo is next weekend! :O Ok, today the F-150 got it's new sneakers all the way around. The Grabber HTS tires hardly look worn at all, with almost 20k on them, BUT they are a street only tire, and I was surprised to find they were 245's NOT the recommended 265's that Ford...

    So.... was looking at doing a hood mount like yours and found, yes, the 2011 F-150 had an aluminum hood. Sigh. I am (for the sake of ease) going to put a mag mount antenna on my roof for now, and figure out a better way when I get the chance.

    Coffee Percolators

    I just saw one of these new on Craigslist locally for $20. Was seriously thinking about it since I drink more coffee then your avg human inhales oxygen. At the moment I run a single serving Keurig while in the camper, and beat to crap coffee percolator (Fareberware?) when tenting. Of course at...

    Hi Everyone, Looking for antenna suggestions for my F-150, for both my CB and 2 meter Yaesu. Here's the rub. I can't drill any holes in the roof of the rig, and I am using a slide-in truck camper. I have the space for a mag mount on the roof. But I am unsure how the camper is going to affect...

    Overland and Emergency SHTF Comms? What to use?

    It has been getting a tad bit confusing with Trail Rigs, everyone now using GMRS in addition to CB/HAM. Personally i have a Yeasu FT-1500M in my rig (well kinda.... still working on mounting it) to work the ARES net locally, and a Yaesu 50r/Radio Shack HTX-200 for handheld comms. Adding an...

    Go Tread vs Max Traxx?

    Honestly, I hadn't run into any bad reviews of the Smittybilt, but I am glad I didn't grab a pair! (Thanks!) Ordering a pair (maybe two) of the X-bull boards. I have a very thin working budget at the moment.
