In my mind I am always at a remote high-elevation lake surrounded by snowcapped peaks.

Roamerland 2021 - quick synopsis:

Great kudos to Shane Stauffer and the RVs of America team on their inauguration Roamerland event, held just outside Panguitch, UT. 6 days of overlanding and related training, awesome adventures, new friends and lifetime memories. Janet and I have "overlanded" for years (we always called it camping, but whatever), but as time takes its toll on our corporeal existence we find strapping on the skis for a nine mile uphill to a frozen lake on Friday after work out of our reach, and dang, but that ground be hard on our aging bones....So, we bit the bullet and got one o' them overlanding trailers. So glad we did, as it keeps us in the game for a whole range of activities. Here's a couple of pics and a video (yours truly at Toquerville Falls, just one of the numerous adventures in the crux of Zion, Bryce, Grand Staircase and Cedar Breaks).

We were at Awenda on Georgian Bay in Ontario for 4 days last week. It was only an hour and a half away so we decided to take both my Cherokee and Comanche. It's the first time we've taken two vehicles. I towed our trailer with the XJ and my wife had the bikes in the back of the MJ. It rained for all but one day which has pretty much been the routine for this summer.

How do you like that canopy? I was seriously looking at a very similar one from Amazon. My latest expedition convinced me that my 10x10 pop up canopy is just way too dang heavy and bulky for overlanding.

It's been great. We have a pop up too and this one takes up about a quarter of the space when packed up and only weighs about 10 lbs. It comes with 2 poles that break down to about 2' long but I replaced those with adjustable poles. It's easy to lift off the back of the Jeep and drop to the ground if we need to go somewhere. It's plenty big enough and it keeps us dry.

It's currently unavailable through Amazon but it may come back ...

Nice!

I was looking at something similar. There are a ton of variations on the theme available on Amazon. It's a matter of finding the best price, I think. I can't seem to get the link to work, unfortunately :(

I have a similar set up, the SlumberJack road house and have been very happy. Durable, good size and packs up about the size of a bigger ground tent.
