    Evacuation Insurance/International Medical Insurance

    I'm interested in personal experience (either good or bad) with evacuation insurance/international medical insurance, specifically: 1) What company have you used? 2) Did you have to actually use it? 3) How much did you pay for it? 4) What did you use it for? 5) What is your understanding of...

    will a family fit?

    Yes thank you all. A family of four also fits in a CJ and can cook weenies over the fire. I need a forum thread here that my wife can read. One with some comments from mothers which cover topics such as storing groceries and dirty diapers, the functionality of the kitchen, running an entire...

    will a family fit?

    Does anyone with kids have experience in an EarthRoamer or Tiger or Turtle? All the pictures I see are of older couples. Any reports from anyone who's actually sleeping 2 adults plus kids in one of these things would be greatly appreciated. Jon

    HELP! 05 Rubicon e-lockers wont' disengage

    Irish 1371, you were absolutely correct. When the mechanic reinstalled the ring gear and carrier, the little plunger inside the differential which is pulled out when the locker is actuated (only function is to turn locker light on dash) was on the wrong side of the actuator. The entire rear...

    SLUMLORD, No wheel spacers. They're the same 4.5 on 5 bolt pattern and wheel as on the TJ. That way the spare works for both rig and trailer setup. Jon

    Our class was a mix just like yours: several physicians, a few mid-level providers, flight paramedics and nurses, and several firefighter/EMTs.

    HELP! 05 Rubicon e-lockers wont' disengage

    Help! I just had my 05 Rubicon's rear end apart to replace the inner and outer axle seals. Now the rear electric locker won't disengage. The front is still working fine. The rear, however, will not disengage no matter what I do. I've tried cycling the rear lockers while in 4L. I've tried...

    Trailer lid lifting struts

    I just put a roof top tent on my trailer's lid and now it's so blasted heavy I can't life it. It's got gas charged struts, but I think the angle is wrong. Any detailed pictures of gas charged strut placement would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jon

    Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals

    Three cheers for NOLS! My wife and I just finished a 5 day Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals in Salt Lake City and it was awesome. The paramedics and firemen who attended added great real-world experience. The lectures were well planned, the handouts and literature were well...

    LETS SEE YOUR TRAILERS!!!!

    Uni, doesn't it bother you to know that your batteries and fridge are getting covered with dust, water, snow, mud, etc? I'm trying to plumb and wire my trailer now and it's such a pain having the water, power, and fridge inside, but I'm afraid that putting them on the tongue will bother me to...

    Backcountry asthma and coffee

    I think it's important to stress that epinephrine is not a first line therapy for asthma, neither in the back country nor in the hospital setting. Epinephrine is sometimes used as a last resort to bridge the gap just prior to intubation, however it is not a "first line therapy" and to my...

    Started my WFA pack for vehicle use.

    Crawler#976 That's a great starter kit. With a little tweaking, you'll be set! You'll save weight, space, and be able to treat just as many injuries by ditching the: cold compresses (heavy and short lived, never been proven to work anyway), wound wash and eye wash solution (can use drinking...

    Need help with an all in one FA Kit.

    Hi Jake, As you've probably learned in your EMT training, there are limited number of interventions that can be performed in an out-of-hospital setting. Large studies have investigated the number and types of injuries sustained in the wilderness, and most of these injuries are relating to...

    Overland TJ's (Ideas, Pic's, etc for 97-06 Jeep TJ's)

    Yup, hard and soft top. I grew up in ND, took the jeep to Western Washington, am stationed in Louisiana but currently deployed, and am moving to El Paso when I get home. Man, do I miss beer.

    Overland TJ's (Ideas, Pic's, etc for 97-06 Jeep TJ's)

    of TJ's, roof racks, and trailers The trailer has a 12v deep cycle battery and 2hr charger, in case I'm in desperate need of a quick charge before heading out, or a gas station road-side charge. There's also a 15W solar panel on top which I think helps keep the battery charged, but I may need...

    Overland TJ's (Ideas, Pic's, etc for 97-06 Jeep TJ's)

    .....of TJs, roofracks, and trailers I too struggled with storage, so I bought a cargo master rack because removing the soft top is integral to the jeep experience, and this variety of rack seemed to make that more feasable. I outfitted it with 4 big hela spots. It seemed like a great idea at...
