    Ok, so I gave my 105W ACOPower panel ( to my wife to use in her van conversion. She has a generator, so solar isn't as important for her as it is for me... I in turn replaced it with the new 120W ACOPower portable panel ( - essentially the same...

    Since I did add an ARB fridge to my setup, but am still 'investigating' the best way to add a deep cycle battery, I decided to add another lightweight, but more powerful, solar panel to my gear. I've had a 24W triple-USB port panel ( I use with great success to top off my...

    Pulled the trigger...

    Got tired of lugging ice around, and finding my meat soggy due to ice/water penetration... Not cheap, but should help going forward. Went for the 37qt model, and I get a free 'limited edition' cover after sending in proof of purchase. Just put it in to see size; it will eventually go all the...

    Off with the old, on with the new...

    As mentioned elsewhere in these fori, I have decided to 'widen the stance' of Ruby a bit, since I will be installing the RTT soon. Ordered some steel 16" wheels with 305/70R16 mud terrain tires from 'The Tirerack' last week. They installed the TPMs, mounted and balanced, and then shipped...

    Monument Valley / Navajo Nation

    I seem to be on a roll today... Planning next years photo outings - One area I really like to revisit is Monument Valley. All the times I was there, I either stayed on the "tourist loop," or paid for a 'photo guide' to take me beyond said tourist loop on a special "photo tour," or even...

    A long time motorcyclist friend (he's big into m/c off-roading; I am more the street-carving type - BMW R11200RTW) of mine pointed me to a site,, for information on 'off the beaten path' roads and trails. Their site explains: "Backcountry Discovery Routes is a 501(c)(4)...
