    1995 Suzuki Sidekick Tinker Toy

    Loving the build,my friend! That gen 'Kick is on my short list of "wish I had one" and "next time I'm buying a ride".

I've been threatening the wife to buy an Astro (otherwise,I'd be looking at a full size,not into other used minivans in my price-range :p ) and build it for camping/road trips (or even living in short term should SHTF...

    Post your tents

    I use our tents on bikepacking/touring trips as well (they're used most often of any kinda use for overnighter bike trips,with FJ Cruiser-camping 2nd,and longer bike trips rare),so they're not huge or heavy. When going solo (or with my 13 year old son),I mostly take the Kelty Tempest 2,which...
