    12v Fridges - Empirical-ish Collection of Sound Levels

    Which free dB measuring app do you guys like for iOS? I'm currently using the free version of Decibel X. Other than the annoying ads since it's the free version, but sometimes I question the numbers I'm getting. When I expect to read a high number sometimes it's way lower than expected. When I...

    12v Fridges - Empirical-ish Collection of Sound Levels

    Unfortunately, don't have my Engel MT45 anymore to test, but I don't remember it being annoying loud as I have slept inside my vehicle a couple times with no issues. Friend had a Engel MT040 and I remember I was sleeping in my tent and when his Engel MT040 inside his rig kicked on, the buzzing...

Rescuers, family, and friends were devastated to discover that Alex had suffered fatal injuries trying to make it through Willow Creek Canyon to...

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    No idea what map they had. They had to hike 22 some miles to go back east to the major road. They probably thought about going west to hit Badwater Road for the shorter distance. Rather than stay with car or backtrack, it seems they chose to go into the unknown (to them). Assuming they walked...

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    The couple underestimated the terrain from their map. Not sure if they had a topo map. I'm familiar with the terrain in that area as I have gone canyoneering there and been through many of the canyons. Very steep terrain with 200' rappels.

    Ground Tents for Overlanding?

    You're not truly overlanding until you're overloading your rig. /sarcasm

    Ground Tents for Overlanding?

    Also needing additional equipment to support the RTT. So add in the cost of a strong roof rack.

    Play bikes...

    2021 Honda Trail 125 is an option if you wanted something lighter with light trail capability. Used in Australia as a postman bike. One Australian traveled on the previous model from Perth to London (shipping across the oceans of course).

    PullPal vs Other Winch Anchors

    The tire anchor + winch didn't work for me down in Baja. Ground was too soft and water kept rising up into the hole. When I winched, the tire anchor would give and pull all the mud toward the rig. Got rescued by fisherman in a truck with line. Good karma because couple days prior I rescued a...

    Stay 15" tires or move to 17"?

    I wanted to stick with 255/85R16 which is the size I've had on my 80 for the last three set of tires. Like you, I noticed that there are more MT than AT options in the pizza cutter size. As a result for limited AT choices in that size, I'm switching to 285/75R16 to open up more AT options for...

    Is there an "ultimate" tablet for Gaia/GPS?

    Checking the apple website I see that the specifications of the plain wifi verison of the iPad Mini doesn't have a GPS chipset. Do you mean, you have the iPad Mini Wifi+Cellular version (without paying for cellular service) connecting to hotspot for data?

    Exceptional Engineering - Offroad Caravan Monsters

    I remember watching that video. When I get old and need all the creature comforts, I prefer the Euro style caravan/camper over the American style RV.
