    Keep in mind the pressure stays consistent as long as you arent pulling out more vapor than the cylinder is producing.

    Leather Holster manufacturers

    El Paso Saddlery and Bullard Leather among the smaller shops. Galco and Bianchi among the big shops. Hard to find a more comfortable IWB that a Bianchi 100 in my opinion. But it really depends on what you want.

    Quality Propane Tanks for Overlanding?

    They can fail, I have seen two over filled cylinders in the last year. It's why we fill to weight.

    Watches.......the other type!

    If you find one that tickles your fancy go for it, really pretty hard to find a bad watch among well known companies. I rarely sell or trade, after I get a few memories in them they become sentimental to me. I wear anything from watches of the late 30's to current ones. Ones from the 30's and...

    electric blankets 12V?

    Carry something to back it up, I can tell you from Gerbings jackets, riding at 20º and blow a fuse it gets damn cold damn fast. When they work, nothing better, when they blow a fuse you might as well be wrapped up in newspapers sleeping in a dumpster

    Interested in 1st gen Xterra 4x4. What to look out for?

    Yep, I liked the ones we had. Not much power on the interstate, be prepared for it to down shift and hit redline on ever mountain pass if you are trying to maintain 70+ mph. Only thing we had slower was a 92 Isuzu Rodeo with the GM V6 and 5 speed, but the Rodeo never got below about 18 mpg. The...

    If you get a whump sound cutting it off at the tank instead of the valve on the stove it may be burning back into the burner when the pressure stops. Most times it doesnt matter, but I just use the stove valve since they were designed to cut the stove off.

    Quality Propane Tanks for Overlanding?

    They usually charge about $4 less for an exchange than a refill around here. So while you get less, it is usually quicker and the price is a little less. Exchange may be fine if you are at a place that refills their own cylinders, most will refill an exchange to 20 lbs same as they refill your...
