I have three "Certified Bear-Resistant" Zarges K470 containers and have had them on adventures around North America over the last three years. I have two #40810 and one #40678.
Rangers have come in camp multiple times in bear country when on their rounds and twice have said the sizes I have...
Actually working on my galley table hooked to the trailer fender. Makes a sweet smooth outdoor work surface about 8' long. I use it for all sorts of projects when backcountry. Makes a great desk area too, when working on images.
Yep, SB50s, and yep, that's one of my Morakniv collection; the...
I believe it is more important to have the charge controller closer to the batteries than it is to have the panels close to the charge controller.
I've been running my system for a few years. Portable panels, originally on a 15' 10AWG cable. Controller to batteries, 10AWG. I regularly run them...
What an awesome little unit!
I'd love to see how it's built in person, especially compared to the fiberglass Scamp type trailers. Some I've seenhave a far more solid floor than others, and better joint midway, too. I like this one being low, with the pop-up.
I have an ARK XO-750 on my XVentures XV-2 trailer. I bought it as an upgrade to the single-wheel Fulton jack that was on it previously. XVenture trailers now come with ARK jacks installed.
It's simply the best trailer jack I've ever used or run across, bar none, in over forty years of towing...
I agree, most don't part with them.
I have an '08 GMC 6.6 Duramax Savana extended body van. Last year before DEF, from what I understand. I've had it since early 2012 and have had zero problems with it. I've driven it all over North America, from Maine, New Brunswick and Quebec to the...
This road, heading east out of Boise City OK, always reminds me of Steve Earle's song Nowhere Road.
"There's a road, in Oklahoma
Straighter than a preacher
Longer than a memory
And it goes, forever onward
Been a good teacher
For a lot of country boys like me. . ."
This particular morning it...
They're real works of art, and extremely well-thought out and rugged as all hell. Though way out of my price range.
I bought my American-made XVenture XV-2 (military trailer mfg w/long heritage) from Exploration Outfitters in OK, who now sells the Patriot Campers in the US. My XV-2 was the...
Windy Nights In the Chihuahuan Desert
I have a ton of images of my camps around North America. This one keeps popping back into mind when I think of all the time I've spent in the desert. Alone out there for weeks, miles from any pavement, long morning walkabouts checking animal tracks and...
That's a great idea, and I have a damaged 12" Vollrath I might try it with before doing my good one.
Though the way I keep my 8" & 10" sauté pans--tucked together on top of my stove and under the kitchen box lid--I don't really need to cut their handles, having the 12" with a removable handle...
