Sweet rig. I do love this dirtbag thread. I have two dirt bag trucks, a 88 4x4 5sp sbsc 4 banger Toyota and a 87 4x4 4sp sbsc straight 6 f150. Toyota has more paint left than ford, so ford has most dirt bag look. Because of size , Toyota is most capable off-road. Both have had a life time of neglect and abuse, but are still dirtbag expedition fishing hunting rigs.

I love this thread. Here's my old 92, 5 speed, 3.slow with a a 10 inch bob and 33's. I truly miss this truck, just not the gas mileage. I now have a 1999 4Runner, which is a great platform to graduate to.

Funny, I was just talking to a co worker about people described by the OP. People who are servers or bartenders at night and travelers/adventurers by day. I don't know how you guys do it. I have tried to be this type of person during college and not be so worried about money and my future like I am, but, it doesn't work for me. I feel that at my current age of 25 I should be out more and traveling and exploring but I am at a desk for 9-10 hours a day working my tail off hoping to be rich and retired by the time I am 55.

Anyways, hats off to you guys.

Sweet pics btw
You're smart to plan ahead, but my constructive criticism is that you've got a false dichotomy here. It's entirely possible to enjoy the present while simultaneously preparing for the future.

My '86 22re xcab acquired this winter from the third owner. 150k, original topper, it was in dire need of maintenance: new t chain, ujoints, tires and SR5 wheels, NWTI plate bumper kit, add-a-leaf, bilsteins, etc. I'm loving this rig, and sleeping in the back every couple weeks on average, exploring fly fishing spots here around Portland, OR.
