    UPDATE SOLD: For Sale: Ford Excursion Overland $20,500

    Do Excursions have a bad rap of rusting out the undersides on the V10's?

    Backpack/Sling

    That was a great write up! I think Im going to get some of those venture pal backpacks for my kids! This is exactly what I was hoping this thread would turn into. A good resource on packs for everyone. I know people carry backpacks when they travel, so it makes sense to have a thread about it.

    Backpack/Sling

    Yeah I have 3 kids and dad(me) is usually the pack mule. So I know that there will be things like hats, sunscreen and possibly 2 or 3 change of clothes(my kids are 10, 5 and 3 almost 4), but in the fall or spring I know there will be jackets or sweatshirts. I picked up an Outdoors Products Quest...

    Backpack/Sling

    Wasn't sure if this topic would go here, but it kinda seems like a better place than other forums, but if not please let me know. What is your choice of backpack for a day away from the car or camp? I was rocking a 5.11 sling that has proven to be just too small.

    SPF/UVF clothing

    Long story short, I had a melanoma removed along with a large chunk of my ear last year. So now I need to be smarter about sun protection. I have a few Columbia swim SPF shirts and a few button ups. What kind of pants or shirts and hats is anyone wearing for sun protection?

    Expedition Sandals

    I liked the Chaco's but my legs were worn out by the end of the day lugging those things around. I feel like they got heavier when they got wet, so they sat in the back of my closet for about a year and I sold them. Ive been looking at the Xero sandals before, guess I will need to check them out...

    Goodyear Wrangler Ultra-Terrain AT - is this a new tire?

    Why would you not overland with them? Ive watched videos of Europeans overlanding in an D110 with all seasons and another with very mild AT's(dont remember the brand any more, but I had to rewind the video to chek what tires they were running. They werent much more than a Michelin LTX type...

    Goodyear Wrangler Ultra-Terrain AT - is this a new tire?

    ^^They do?! I certainly dont see it. The side lugs are totally different, the center tread is much more dense on the GY vs the Falken. I ran the Falkens and they were decent. Have a set on my Lexus currently and they are starting to get loud for me and I am at about 50% tread left. Im on the...

Plus my when my family goes camping, this would be good to keep comms with my wife if we go...

    Midland Micromobile

    Was curious to see if anyone is using or has used micromobile devices from Midland and what your thoughts were on it? To give context I have a HAM license and use it, but was thinking for closer comms and from a licensing perspective, its cheaper and easier than getting a HAM license...

    Subaru Outback Gen 5: 2.5i or 3.6R

    Get the 3.6R. With the added height an weight, the 2.5 will be struggling some. I have a 2.5 Legacy with the CVT and its ok, but not great. I have a loaner Crosstrek with the 2.0 and the CVT and its been better than my legacy. I have been looking for a decent 3.6 Outback with decent miles in my...

    Volvo XC70 a good overlander?

    I love to see that someone is really using an XC90. After having had a few Volvo wagons myself, I have always wanted an XC90. Maybe I can convince the wife to get one as her next car. They are awesome!

    Solid work!! That rear bumper looks nice. Its simple, but stout. Not like you are trying to carry everything and the kitchen sink on the back!
