You're kinda a big ol' boy, are you sure that little vehicle is big enough for you to sleep in? -Big Ray (another big ol' boy in NC.)

OK so I'm getting ever so close to my departure I will be a getting a few thing today and test run tomorrow. Due to my ribs still hurting I may be leaving out around the 10th. This gives me one more week of healing as well as allows things to dry out a bit hopefully. I would imagine that the Trail is real muddy right now with all these storms lately. Here are some pics of the set up so far.

Storm is a diva and had to be in the shot. She's not joining!!


Got my mount for the Garmin near the mirror and mount for phone that's all I really need

Can't wait to use the fun knobs!!! Crawl control, down hill assist, locking diff

Quick little throw together, getting the final pieces together. I bought some screen to put around the windows with some magnets I will shoot a pic during next mock up.

Trying to figure out if I want to get a cooler or a inexpensive car fridge. Tested the new stove out worked great gonna try coffee in the morning

Good luck! Hope you're recovering quickly. I hope to make this same trek with my daughter in a few years (she's note even 2 yrs old and she can say "Jeep Expedition!").

Recovering yes. Quickly, not nearly quick enough. I still plan on leaving by next week which will put me 10days behind

Making some coffee for the first time on the stove. We will see how this works. Kind of windy too glad I got the one with the wind deflectors



Went with this as a cooler hopefully I don't regret it.

OK so this morning I packed up everything and did a final check. The only thing I have to do now is pack my clothes.

Here is how I will be traveling

I reached out to Smittybilt and tried to gain a rooftop tent and rack but the marketing Dept took over three weeks and still no answer so I guess thats a no go!!







Again, the dogs are not coming though they think they are!!

Are you supposed to have the fridge tilted on it's side like that? Also, what's your plan for when that thing kills your battery from running all night? Are you going to switch to sleeping on the other side of the vehicle?
