    Got A Delorme LT-20 Antenna: What To Do With It?

    I had a Delorme LT-20 basically given to me. I was thinking I could use it on my laptop and use that as a GPS (I have a bunch of MapsPro maps downloaded on it). I do not have any software for the antenna though and it seems like the laptop won't find it. Any ideas?

    OK, So No More Diehard Platinums, What To Get Now?

    My Diehard Platinum crapped out 2017 Fall. Of course I was pinched for cash with an upcoming kidney transplant in January. I spoke with a buddy that works at an Autozone. He told me to go in to the local one and ask if there are any expired batteries. He said they sell them for $50. It was my...

    Sure-Fire Ways to Improve Your Roof Top Tent

    Thse are pretty neat. My cinch straps on my Mombasas started slipping a lot a couple years ago. Last summer I just put some new Velcro on it. But that is the benefit of knowing an upholster. I picked up an industrial sewing machine last year but I haven't gotten it sorted out yet. They work...

    I went in Weds. AM and was out Sat. evening. I stayed by Henry Ford at their guest housing since its 100+ miles from there. I had a clinical check this AM and everything is going excellent! Very little pain. Drainage and surgical gas is all that is really bugging me and it nil compared to what I...

    I stopped by Schenk's on Saginaw once but I couldn't find anyone. I tried to go to Barnum's over towards Millington. He says he crushed all his old stuff but it looks like he may still have a few looking at Google Earth. There are a couple others more towards Lapeer I want to get to this summer...

    Here are a few more. Driving by, I would see these sitting out by the road. They made me want to get in and see what else was in there.

    Now it would be convincing one to go out on that giant ice skating rink! Its been cold up here. I am sure the owner would love that!

    Abandoned/derelict sites

    I guess this may qualify as abandoned or derelict. I had wanted to shoot some photos at a not-too-far-from-me salvage yard. I knew they had quite a stock of some neat old stuff. It took a few trips to persuade the owner to let me do it (along with a pizza). The yard is ran by the son now and...

    tacoma frame replacement

    I have an '04 Doublecab that has been in Michigan all it's life. It just rolled 156K. I took it in when I got the notice about the buy-back/replacement/coating (2008 was it?). Mine got the coating since it was in good shape at the time. The coating has been flaking off over the years and I have...

    Sure-Fire Ways to Improve Your Roof Top Tent

    I had my buddy put new Velcro on my side cinch straps at his canvas shop. I peeled the old stuff off for him. $5 and they work great now. They were 8 years old.

    Sure-Fire Ways to Improve Your Roof Top Tent

    I put new Velcro (better grade too) on my lashing straps on my Mombasa. Its 8 years old now. I put a set of different cover straps on it I made years ago. Those buckles work much better than fighting those D-rings.

    Sure-Fire Ways to Improve Your Roof Top Tent

    I've been using a pancho liner for my welcome mat. I recommend getting one if you do not have one. Nothing sticks to them. They are tough to find under $30 now. Plus they spread out to @ '4x'8. I did notice my ladder is leaving some wear marks though. Maybe I will go back to that woven rug.

    That looks like a pretty neat bridge teotwaki! I have passed this old motor lodge several times. I finally had the time to stop and take some photos. I think its been unused for about 10 years. Kind of a shame but its in a poor location in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
