    Organized vs. OCD. Where is the line?

    My wife is always giving me a hard time that I am too OCD when it comes to packing the rig. I say "do you hear anything rattling....exactly." How far do you go when organizing your rig? I know boxes add weight but I also don't want junk flopping around when we are on the trail.

    Gear that I can't go without.

    Last weekend camping in the wet cold in east Texas was a good reminder of the gear that I had and the gear that I wish I had. First off having my Mr. Heater was a game changer. I wouldn't have been able to sit in my camp chair and enjoy being outside without this. Also it didn't rip through my...

    Communications Questions....

    Hey All, I am relatively new to communication equipment. I used to have CB in my last vehicle but never really used it much because most of my buddies use handheld radios for trail comms. I am looking at adding permanent comms to my new rig and was curious if there was something that would be...

    MPAC Spring Tail - JK Tailgate Table

    For the JK Jeepers! I found MPAC online a few months ago while searching for a tailgate table. The cost was right for the quality they seemed to offer. I noticed the table was versatile with the addition of molle holes and rugged with a nice powder coat finish. I decided to give the company a...

    Kitchen in a Bucket Idea.

    No money for those fancy drawer setups, and it's way too cold outside to build anything. I can afford a 5 gallon bucket and a cheap tool belt from Walmart though. "System" stores everything but the dry goods stuff (which will be in another 5 gallon), and it takes up much less room in the truck...

    Any experience with 'Dead Man Off-Road' Earth Anchor?

    If you re living in a place where sand and dirt primary occupies more terrain than hills and rocky mountains then you should look into this piece of recovery gear. This works in all terrain environments however trapped on a beach or in the dunes alone could cost you more than a cold night. Sup...

    RTT Annexes... How often do you use them? How do you set them up INSIDE?

    So, I have a Tepui Ruggedized Autana 3. It came with a nice big annex, but I've never used it... usually camp in one spot, pack up in the morning, explore all day, then find a new camp spot and deploy the tent and sleep. I want to hear how often you use your annex. Do you only use them when...

    Product Review: Clark Jungle Hammocks Mark2

    As I've outfitted my overland rig, I've adopted a backpacker-like mantra of maximizing versatility and minimizing size and weight. This is something of a necessity; my BJ42 is not very large, and not powerful either. On the other hand, this has pushed me to find some really clever and unique...
