    Roof Top Tent: Take me to school

    Tepui Ayer because it was the smallest available at the time and only brand sold in Alaska. Stuff broke on it and the owner personally helped me repair it in Santa Cruz. (Just general wear and tear) doing it all over again I'd go with a hard shell like an Airtop or something that packs faster.

    Roof Top Tents on Smaller Vehicles

    Tepui Ayer on an Isuzu VehiCROSS Tepui may not be the best, but when I came off the AlCan and the Cassiar Highway Tepui fixed everything that went wrong right in their shop and threw in some extra goodies. It's seen -20f, 110f, 12" rain in one night, and held a snow load...best $900 (after...

    99 V-Cross blown motor

    The problem is the small oil ports on that 3.5 (I have an ExPo VX) if it gets rebuilt they should open those guys up and you'll never have that problem again.

    Post your tents

    I know it's cheap but it was the smallest I could find in Alaska, has held up to everything the West coast could throw at it including a typhoon and 12" of rain, desert temps in Baja, and -20 Alaskan winters...not bad for $750

    Officer Nichols responding to a report of men with guns in a field, ended up taking Franklin because there was still flesh present.

    Black Footed Ferrets! AZGFD Capture

    As goodtimes said we did not really have too much time to stop, prep GoPros and take pictures while we were out at night so there are no ferret capture videos or even pictures of our prized little critters but there are plenty of others. We found 8 ferrets as a group, got shot by a rogue skunk...

    Thanks for the advice, I haven't been up all night since college. I think I will consist on a diet of smokeless tobacco, caffeine, and beef but I couldn't find any cocoa leaves :/

    looking for an expedition car/wagon/small suv.

    I like my Vehicross but it has shortcomings lack of head space, no cup holders, only about 18mpg, some have oil burning issues lack of body parts. All in all though wouldn't have picked anything different. Drove from Ak to Az along the PCH in 3 weeks no hiccups. Incredibly nimble, capable, and...

    Always Wear Your Gear

    I went out to the desert this last weekend, tried powering through a sandy wash and got thrown at about 40 mph. Long story short broken collar bone and separated shoulder. It could have been a lot worse. I'm convinced God and my gear saved me. Have a good helmet on all of the time and full...

    OPERATION: Overland VEHIcross

    I have decided that the best thing I can do in this point is to leave the truck mostly stock. It gets wheeled a little but mostly out to camp sites. For that reason I am in the mid stages of building a trailer build pics to come. List of mods so far to the VX OME 3" lift progressive springs...
