    New Overlanding pop up unit.

    I’ve been off here for a while but I’m assume your non compete has lapsed and you’ve got a new company up and running? Did you move back to red deer or still in Edmonton? Pop up looks killer.

    Multimeter recommendations

    I have a Flir CM82 (I think). It was $350+. I love it but it’s way overkill for my needs ( work mainly) Fluke is the benchmark in the industry. A cheap meter ($40-$80) would suffice for anything to might need to diagnose on the trail and in the shop. Multimeters is definitely one of those areas...

    Trailer build

    On my trailer I decided to weld the frame. I knew how to weld s that wasn’t an issue but lately I’ve been thinking about building a new frame from aluminum C channel and gusset plates top and bottom of every joint. I wouldn’t weld the aluminum but am strongly considering rivets and/or flush...

    Really?......Bigfoot?

    I hope then cops find him and throw the book at him. No outdoorsman should worry about getting shot because some idiot is to ignorant to identify something before shooting at it.

    Has anyone gone from a fridge to a cooler?

    If you were pondering going from a cooler to a fridge I would generally lean towards a cooler.However, since you already have the fridge set up I would say stay with it. Perhaps get rid of the slide and move the cooler in and out as needed ( with a collapsible cart instead of lugging it through...

    If not a Tacoma... then what? [eatSleepWoof's midlife-crisis edition.]

    Make the tundy a priority to test drive. I have one and my buddy has one. He has the top of the line model (current year) I have an 07 mid range model. I find mine comfortable for sure and it definitely doesn’t Lack in the power department. My buddies is more comfortable than mine. 3000#...

    Hand tools, does brand really matter?

    I keep a bag of tools in my truck. Basically they are there to keep me going ( if possible) until I can either get back home or to a proper repair shop. So generally they don’t get much use so I don’t worry about them being top Notch quality. I’m sure the harbour freight brand sockets and...

    Options for stabilizer jacks for an overland teardrop style trailer!

    One option that I am considering is the side winder weld on jacks. Weld on the mount and remove the actual jack when traveling. Or turn it side ways.

    Bedding, and beds in your campers- whats your system?

    For my camper I ordered a medium density foam cut to the size I specified. It was 4” thick but if I had to reorder I would do 2” medium density and 1”-2” of a softer foam. As it sits it probably weighs under 20 lbs

    Portable propane fire pit

    Yeah a bigger tank is definitely the way to go. Last year we got about 3 nights out of a 20 pounder with the flame on medium-low. I bought a 30 pounder for this year as I prefer a bigger flame. I leave for Idaho tomorrow mornings S if they lift the burn ban we’ll see how many nights I will get...

    Hummelator Off-road teardrop build

    I think I might have super powers or something... On Friday I talked to one of my sparky about bending pipe. Then also watched a YouTube video on it. Obviously something clicked because I was able to bend that run with only one pipe. Was pretty jazzed so I decided to mount some boxes around my...

    Towing a 4,000 pound camping trailer. Tacoma or F150?

    I would say ford as well. But since you already own the vehicles, try towing it with both. I’m guessing you will quickly realize what you prefer.
