    2019 Dice Roll Challenge in Northern BC

    Hello all, My partner and I (the better half of CoT) like to make video trip reports — a way of bringing both Overlanding and video hobbies together. Last year, we decided to do something a little different with “The Dice Roll Challenge”. Every day, we rolled a dice. If we rolled a 1, we’d go...

The Canyon...

    Overlander's Preventative Maintenance

    Hi folks, I just spent my long weekend on my back under my 2013 JK removing the transmission for the 3rd time. The first time was because the Throwout bearing went bad at 20,000 kms. The second time was at around 90,000 kms when the factory clutch finally went. At 120,000 kms, the slave...
