    ROOF RACKS - the GREAT, the ORDINARY and the AWFUL. How to select the right one

    Great video from Andrew White. I dig the white troopy near the end done up like his, but Andrew still has the ultimate Troopy.

    Pakmule Cargo Carrier

    Just bought the lower profile one so I can swing open my rear door. I bought this so I can haul firewood to a campsite to have a good supply for close to a week. Barely had room in the FJ last year for even one bundle :D Kind of pricey, but no assembly required, light weight aluminum, and...

    Awning Advice from Andrew White

    I have to disagree with one thing he said, and that is that a 270 degree awning is not great if you are going to leave your rig in one position the whole trip. When I used my Eezi-Awn Bat 270 awning at Mount Rainier last August, I did not move the rig, and I had very good protection from the sun...

    Air Roof Top Tent

    I have seen ground tents before that inflate via air, but never a roof top tent. This guy goes to roof top tent rallies, so I subbed to him awhile back, and this was uploaded today. Wish I knew German well enough to know what they are saying. I sure would hate for it to spring a leak though...

    Bug Out Emergency Grab Bag for Overlanders and Preppers

    Great video by Andrew White. If you do not follow him, you should check out his trip videos, and the buildup on his Toyota Troopy Land Cruiser.

    Intents Offroad

    Anyone watch this YouTube channel? Not sure how I ran across it a few months or so back, but I like it. I follow Ronny Dahl and Andrew White from 4XOverland, both from Australia , as well as this channel here. Some very cool video editing goes on in the vids to make them look very old in parts...

    Cast Iron Campfire Cooking | How To | Quick Breakfast Skillet

    Are any of you subscribed to Jason's channel? I have been for the past year or so. He gets out about every weekend camping (he is a landscape photographer) with his dogs who also share the roof top tent with him. PS, he has two dishwashers with him on his trips too, but you do not get to see...

    Andrew had shown his shower setup on his new Troopy in one of his videos from his 9 part series doing the Canning Stock route. Looks pretty cool, this was just posted yesterday.

    What are you using for a coffee maker and coffee brand when camping/overlanding?

    In LGRT's breakfast post coffee was mentioned later in the thread, but I did not want to clog it up since the thread was mainly about food. So what are you using for making coffee when camping, and what kind? I use to use a French press when camping, as I also used one at home too. But they are...

    Vacation 2017 At Mount Rainier National Park, White River Campground

    (We went at a fairly good time (second week of August), even though it was smoky up there. The campground and surrounding areas were evacuated a week back due to the Norse Creek area wildfires which got dangerously close to Mount Rainier and the area. They just started letting people back to...

    Redtop Optima is close to dead

    This has been a great battery since 2010 when it was put in as a second battery in my FJ. It ran the new National Luna fridge I got last September just fine too. Yesterday I packed up some vittles in the fridge and ran it during the day and it got down to cooling temps. Overnight though when I...

    Goal Zero Yeti 400 Lithium & Boulder 100 Watt Solar Panel

    This is posted in my buildup thread, but I am posting it here too in case no one saw it yet. I use to run the ArkPak battery generator when camping to power up my string of old school Goal Zero 3 watt LED lanterns I hung on the Campinglab awning, and also to charge back up flashlight and camera...

    Temperature readout on National Luna Weekender 50 fridge

    My fridge I bought has Celsius readout only, hence why I keep a temperature conversion chart on the side of the fridge, and digital temp gauges inside of the fridge and freezer compartments. I was rereading the latest Overland Journal issue again yesternight with the fridge shootout in it, and...

    Need mounting pics of the Eezi-awn 270 Bat awning

    Getting very close to ordering the awning from Paul May over at Equipt. I understand it does not have a duel track on the back like the Campinglabs and ARB type of awning as seen in my picture below. Do you have to drill holes through the Eezi-awns case in the rear? I know I would have to...

    My NVIDIA Shield K1 Tablet with Gaia Software Observations

    I did not want to clog up this thread so I am starting a new one. In the above thread I learned about Gaia mapping/GPS software. On my HTC One phone and my new NVIDIA Shield K1 tablet I run both Back Country...

    Aluboxes From Equipt Expedition Outfitters

    Will get to the Aluboxes in a bit, but the ECS cases are what I have been using for camping since 2010. I like them as they stack like Legos, no matter what size case you use, they will interlock with each other. The two in this first pic are their big footlockers, I...

    KickAss Portable 12v Compressor Fridge Freezers for Camping

    New fridge on the market, this was in my YouTube feed over the weekend from a channel I subscribe too. They make a lot of stuff under the KickAss brand such as solar panels, camping lights, and dual battery kits that you do not have to put under the hood. This fridge however is 220v or 12v, but...

    Ronny Dahl's Trips

    I bet there are quite a few here that watch Ronny's videos. I subscribed to his site probably last spring or so, as he has lots of tips, and great coverage of adventures in the Australian Outback. His three latest videos are great, so I will post them. I am currently watching number three of...
