    My first Jeep, a 1983 CJ7!

    My father in law has had this 1983 CJ7 since 1993. The last 7-8 years it's been sitting up. I have been joking all these years saying he should give it to me for Christmas. Well, this year, he did. I am a proud owner of a free 1983 Jeep CJ7. I work on a boat, and I was not in town for the...

    Cargo Rack Generator Carrier Build!

    When I'm traveling in my van for work I boondock most of the time. Last year I used a window mounted A/C unit. Since then, I built out the interior and the bed is right where the window unit would sit and I can't use that setup anymore. So I went ahead and picked up a Dometic Penguin 2...

    E-Scooters. A really good van camping accessory.

    Hey guys, figured I would throw this out there. You know those rental scooters that are popping up everywhere? Like Bird / Lime / Skip / etc...? They will go 20mph and have a pretty good range. Usually around 15 mile range. They're great for ripping to the bathroom at the campground, or...
