    White Turtle III - Ford Transit - The build and adventure!

    I have had a build thread going on the Transit forum but thought that I would bring some of the things here more for ideas in the expedition area than the actual van. I like the feedback from different people and have found cool ideas on many forums so the more information the better. Some...

    Promaster / Transit

    In my other thread I have been working out ideas for a cold weather unit. If I go with the build it myself idea I have it narrowed down to a 2016 / 2017, 2500 or 3500 model of either the Ford Transit or the Dodge Promaster. I would like a unit with some warranty but I don't think that I would...

    Snacks / light meal ideas

    I hate it when I stop someplace for fuel and all they have are greasy chips, not that I don't eat them but I know that I shouldn't, and after a couple days of chips as snacks I don't feel the best. As well when I am on the road I find that many times I am trying to get someplace to shoot at a...

    Miyata 1000 touring bike

    This is not a for sale thread but rather a question about a sale. Some background, I bought my dream bike in 1985. It is a Miyata 1000 touring bike, and it is my baby. It has gone many places, slept in my bedroom when I was single and has been babied. My dream for 35 years was to ride across...

    Additional storage

    Well I have a trailer to haul in the summer with all the extras, or when I am taking a group out, but for when I want to use the truck for a quick run someplace with one or two people towing the trailer is overkill if all I want is the barbeque. I can fit my inflatable kayak, actually both...

    Lemon Juice

    Okay I could be crazy (that is nothing new), but I remember many years ago my mother kept a container of lemon juice in the cupboard. It was never refrigerated and we never died because of this. My question is was that a special kind of lemon juice or was it just the way things were done back...

    Tire Question

    First let me say I tried doing a search for information but came up with way too many threads to check. I am looking at new tires for my trailer. I bought new tires and rims last year (15" rims) as a package and wore them out after 1500km as the axle was bent. So the trailer is in having a...

    Drying Clothes

    My boys and I camp in all weather conditions. In the winter the biggest problem is drying out clothes that have gotten wet (usually very wet as the boys love to play in the snow). Have tried in the camper with us but the humidity is a drawback and they dry slowly. By a fire but many times it...
