    Extreme use Earthroamer

    In BC, each road is given a specific fequency channel (I believe they use VHF or something like that). Their are large signs letting you know the frequcny channel to listen to, if you have the right type of radio (they don't use CB's here). The logging truck drivers will call either up or down...

    Extreme use Earthroamer

    Their are pullouts on the logging roads, if you have the right radio and listen you will know when to pull over and wait. I don't, so I just drive with extreme care. Most logging trucvks are the regualr on-road ones and usually you have enough room to squeeze by. The large off-road ones do...

    Extreme use Earthroamer

    I met one of those coming around a corner. Exactly like that. It was quite the experiance. I pretty much ate the ditch as he took up the entire road. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk

    Action Packer Alternative

    I've had a few of those for a number of years now. They are well worth the cost, and hold up very well.

    Extreme use Earthroamer

    i just came back from spending two glorious weeks exploring Northern Vancouver Island. You can get almost anywhere up their via logging roads.....of course the downside if you have to watch for those massive Vancouver Island logging trucks and be prepared to eat the ditch at a moments notice...

    Extreme use Earthroamer

    That is still on the must-do list. So much to see and drive in our own country, it could take a lifetime to explore it all.

    Extreme use Earthroamer

    Sign me up. I win the lottery today, I order something like an Earthroamer tomorrow. Until then, my Wife and I continue with our 10 year plan. We drive the heck out of our Tundra and Four Wheel Camper, trying to go everywhere we can (and some places we shouldn't) If our plan goes according to...

    Top three upgrades/modifications

    A rooftop vent with a fan is always nice to help circulate air (Can't see if you have one or not).

    Securing fwc

    I put one jam nut on each turnbuckle. Just pick them up at the hardware store. We've put some serious miles on our truck/camper in the last year and half. Thousands of km's of gravel and washboard roads, our fair share of off-roading and many miles of twisty mountain highways. No loosening of a...

    What do you use for a truck gun?

    45-70. I'm sure it will be interesting to shoot. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk

    What do you use for a truck gun?

    I just bought myself this early birthday present; a Marlin Trapper, I'll probably rotate between it and the short 12 gauge (an ATA Etro 8) when out hiking. I have an Eberlestock Gunrunner pack with a built in scabbard that is really nice. I built a compartment in the rear storage/dog platform...

    One of the things I like most about our FWC is that in bad weather (rain, snow, etc) we can be seated inside very comfortably within a couple minutes. Crack a cold beer, or make a hot coffee, then chill out in the warmth of the furnace and decide what to do.

    Congrats. Buying our Hawk was one of the best decisions we ever made. Couldn't imagine being without it now.
