Thanks guys and gals. (We have at least one female member besides Kelsey... right?..... RIGHT?!)
If we made some stickers would you buy them? We’re not sure how to figure out shipping since we’ll be on the road in a couple weeks, but we’ll try to figure it all out!
Don’t worry, this is suitable for work despite the NSFW sounding name.
A look back before we go forward... Some non-overland content ahead. Be wary!
Now it’s official. The normals (Office folk) know that we’re quitting so I can speak freely. So, apologies for any reference to plans or a big trip, but pre-giving notice I just couldn’t openly talk about it. Any mentions to a big trip were risky and a bit stupid on my part, but we made it.
It’s high time to show my pops what I’ve been wasting my free time and money on for the last 20 something years.
Technically it’s an RV, if you live in it temporarily... right? Ah, well, whatever it is we’ve been putting in a lot of work on our truck since we drove to Canada over a weekend in January to cut the roof off and graft on a Campteq poptop.
So, pretty simple. Fly to Las Vegas. Pick up my vehicle for the week. (1991 FJ80). Drive to Red Rocks state park. Spend the week zigging and zagging over dirt tracks to Phoenix, AZ while training some military folks.
Update: Tough weekend.
3,300 miles, 60-ish hours of driving plus 18 hours of working on our truck later we’d driven from Arizona to Canada and back to Arizona ...and we’d cut the roof off our Land Cruiser.
I need a camera that has room for para-cord, a mole strap system, 4" blade and has velcro for attaching patches.
So far so good. We put on several coats of Lizard Skin Sound Control and Ceramic Coating over the last few nights. Extra on the transmission tunnel since you could cook an egg on it before.
We strip Goose bare and make a mount for our own rear mounted IED (Propane Tank)
We head out to the California state line and spend the next 3 days meandering home over 350 or so miles of dirt back home to Phoenix, AZ.
What do you think about aftermarket seats?
The month started out with Kelsey and I heading out camping with too little ground clearance and dirt on highway 666 for an ontheland adventure.
New one from Car Bros
We head out to drive and camp Highway 666 (191) to commune with the devil, as one does.
The final morning of the trip... Not quite ready for real life, to plug back in. We wanted to delay the inevitable if only for a couple more hours.
