    Denied bringing a rifle into Canada

    So... I was going to spend a week up in Canada. I was entering via the Sumas border crossing (in WA), and going as far north as Whitehorse (a four day drive from the border), and then turning around and driving four days back. I was pre-running part of a trip I'm leading next month to the...

    Trailer tires wearing uneven

    I just got back from a 3000 mile trip pre-running part of the 5000 mile trip to the Arctic Ocean we'll be doing in August. I noticed when I got home the trailer tires were wearing more on the inside half of the tread (I'll probably replace them before the trip in August). The trailer is a...

    Corned Beef Hash

    Am I the only one that likes Corned Beef Hash? I'm getting ready for a long (for me... about 3 weeks long) overlanding trip in about two months, and it'll be just me in the vehicle this time. So I'm trying to get smaller sized food (servings for one is what I'm trying to say). I don't want to...

    Coleman Campstove Oven carrying case?

    I have a Coleman folding Campstove Oven I've had for years that I want to start carrying again for when I'm adventuring (relatively) light and just bringing a one-burner stove (vs. my big two burner stove/oven combo). The cardboard box is getting a little (or a lot!) worn. I couldn't find...

    Kayaking in the Arctic Ocean

    In August (2019) a group of us plan on driving the Dempster Highway all the way to Inuvik and on to Tuk now that they opened the new road, and put our kayaks in the Arctic Ocean (technically the Beaufort Sea or even more descriptive possibly the Mackenzie Bay, but whatever - saying "The Arctic...

    One-burner propane stove?

    I was at a big-box store the other day walking through their camping section, and came across an inexpensive (unfamiliar brand) single burner propane stove thingy (not a butane stove with a propane option). It was just pieces in a box, and said max 5,000 BTUs. It looked very much like this...

    Looking for a particular hat

    This'll be a short thread. My computer took a major dump a while back. Was able to save all my data, but I lost all the links (Favorites) I had been saving over the years (tons of links lost - it was a sad day). Anyways... there's a fabric hat out there I'm looking for (I lost the link...

    Camping Chair Storage Bag

    I've got two of the ARB Camp Chairs (brown ones, without the plastic side tables). I really like the chairs, but I hate the flimsy storage bag they came with. They've already got holes worn through them. Does anyone make a heavy duty camp chair storage bag these would fit in? Maybe even...

    Strapping down a kayak to a roof-rack

    What are you all actually using to strap your kayaks to your roof-racks? There's a thread under Storage Solutions titled: "Your preferred Roof Rack straps, tie down options?" that talks about straps obviously. I've read where some folks like using NRS cam-straps, but I wonder if they could...

    Storing propane cylinders inside enclosed spaces

    I know I keep those green one-pound propane cylinders inside my little enclosed trailer. But does anyone store their larger propane tanks inside their trailer? I've seen folks mount the five-pound tanks outside their trailers (the size I'm thinking of), but I'm thinking I'd rather keep it away...

    Drop-down tailgate

    I've been wanting to convert my Jeep TJ's tailgate from opening like a door to dropping down like a truck tailgate. I went with a kit from SWAG, and it turned out very nicely. Now I've got a surface to work on or put a stove when overlanding.

    Looking for a skinny refillable propane tank

    I'm looking for a propane tank that will fit inside a 10lb CO2 tank holder. Will be attached to my little overlanding trailer. Would like the tank about 7" diameter, and about 18" tall max (so we're talking tall and skinny, not short and fat). I've seen the old school skinny aluminum 6lb...

    Carrying an extra five gallons of gas with my Jeep TJ

    I've been wanting a swing-away spare tire carrier for my Jeep so I can later convert the tailgate to a drop-down tailgate. I also wanted the ability to carry extra fuel for expedition travels outside the Jeep. So I had a place called Dirtworx build me a rear bumper to my specs. It also...

    Let me show you how little I know....

    I've been using CBs for years - decades if you must know. I remember when the big thing was CBs going from 23 channels to 40. On trail rides, I've been using CBs forever. When they work (and they generally do unless you're spread out) CBs work fine. I've got two Jeeps and a truck with CB...

    Vehicle rear axle to trailer axle distance

    I recently put a swing-away spare tire carrier bumper on the back of my Jeep, and I needed to extend the trailer tongue for the swinging spare tire carrier to clear the front of my trailer when it swings open (second picture shows the before tongue extension). Now the tongue seems really long...

    Trailer fender flares

    I recently added some larger tires and rims to my trailer, and now the tires stick out from under the fenders. Anyone have any ideas or places to get flares for these kind of fenders (picture attached)? I don't want it to look tacky.

    Poor-boy RTT - now I need a ladder

    Went on a three-week trip (I guess you could call it an expedition; I called it an adventure) up to Northern Canada recently (TX to Inuvik NWT, and back to TX), and we used a pair of Cabela's double-sized Tent-Cots (not a lot of head room, but fine for sleeping). After the trip, I decided to...

    My little Harbor Freight trailer build

    A couple of years ago I bought a little four-foot trailer frame from Harbor Freight, and built it up. It'll never compare to an M-416, but I like it. Here's the link to the build: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f27/mini-harbor-freight-type-trailer-ultimate-build-up-thread-1180456/ I loaded...
