Front Runner Expander Chair

People love new features on their products. Each year manufacturers of every type and class make just enough changes on their products to make consumers think they HAVE to have it, Apple anyone? While I’d like to think our industry is exempt, it may be the biggest offender of all. Want a ten-room tent with cup holders in the walls, screened front porch, and skylights? They’ve got it. Need an oven or deep fryer at your camp? No problem. How about… read more »

A Budget Overlander, Forester Part III: Kitting It Out

The first time I packed up the Forester for an overnight camping trip the rear end sagged down to the bump stops, it clearly wasn't the kind of "truck" I'm used to driving.

I had a long way to go, a full day's drive, and as usual I was late getting started. It was practically a miracle I even left as I had just gotten the truck road worthy the day before after a different incident earlier in the month. That's a different story but needless to say, considering what I was about to… read more »

Ford Introduces New Off-Road Inspired Everest, But Not For the U.S.

I wonder what Henry Ford would have to say about it, but we blue-blooded Americans keep getting hosed by the blue oval. Our most recent kick to the shins is the Ford Everest we will never see. Built to service off-road driving fun-havers in China, Australia, New Zealand, probably all of Europe, maybe Mauritius just because, it will not be offered here on home soil. So why should we care? Because it looks cool, and we’re tired of the Explorer. Not… read more »
