    After my '03 Montero died an early death by transmission failure in October I'm finally back into a cheap 4x4 for trips into the woods. A '98 Nissan Pathfinder with about 162k.

    And for when I need to go farther or faster... Not really a "bushcraft vehicle" as we'd probably define it but on the first weekend I had it I was already camping out of the back of it.

    Yeah! I just noticed they match now. I was on there long before I got my bikes. Guy, did you get that GSA you were drooling over?

    I'm afraid not. Since I was not used to dual sports, having come from a Harley background, I bought a KLX250S with the 351 kit in it, then I went to a 2013 DRZ, which I still have. It is my avatar picture over there. I have only done one longish trip on it, down to Florida. About 800 miles round trip. I like it. I am sure the BMW would be a bit less buzzy at high speed, but I don't care about riding the interstate on a bike anymore anyway. I like the back, dirt and forest service roads. Can't camp on the interstate anyway.

    I hear you. My Tiger is perfect for the long trips I am trying to get into. Did a nice trip up to the Green mountains and then down to the berkshires a week ago. The GF was on her TW200, but it was not up for the mountains on the state roads. I think she is looking towards a Tiger too, or an Africa Twin. There are two for sale down the road here, so we shall see what happens there.

    I was recently fired, so I am toying with the idea of going for a "full time" trip on my bike.

    Sounds like you are turning that into a great opportunity! Let's keep in touch about doing some rides or at least meeting up for some camping.

    Definitely! It's just one of those things life throws at you sometimes. Gotta roll with the punches, however they come.


    Just say when. I have time these days. Offer goes for anyone really. Just message me or call if you have my number. several of you do. I am down for an overnighter or two whenever.

    I haven't been fired, but IA Woodsman is now involved with the the store, so after I make sure that the new software is running smoothly, I am going to take a roadtrip on the DRZ. I have a few things left to do on the bike, then sorting through gear and deciding what I am going to take. I still have to admin the board, so I need to figure out how to efficiently carry a laptop to also use for editing video. I want to start doing more videos. I see a lot of videos of motocamping that leave out the camping portion.

    Awesome! I had a hunch that something was up with the store when I saw your progress to Montana.

    Pelican makes backpacks that have an integrated hard case. They are pretty sweet. Heavy but sweet. Might not be a bad option if you are willing to split for one.

    Hopefully my next car. We're becoming empty nesters soon, so I'll finally ditch the Chrysler minivan!

    Just got myself a new truck,
    needed that extra storage space.
    Thought it would be the right thing for New Mexico sagebrush and cactus.
    I live in hilly country : minute 2:40
    Took some practice to get unstuck.

    Yeah, I know, NM looks kinda like Egypt in spots.
    Hope you like it :4:

    I have been a Jeep guy forever, but I needed something with a lot more power so I am now rocking a '99 Durango with a 360ci v8. I really like this truck a lot.

    Well I have a different truck now. My '95 Chevy, listed earlier in this thread, was totaled by someone not paying attention! I was looking to get something of similar age but I came across a deal I couldn't pass on for the truck below. It'll do fine for my outdoor needs.

    I found some new wheels off of a Tacoma on Craigslist for a song and the newly discontinued (therefore 1/2 price) 265/70/17 (32x10.5) Goodyear all terrains.
    A 1.5" daystar lift and rola vortex roof basket are coming with the money I saved on tires.

    IMG_1337.JPG

    I also took off the running boards and front mud flaps and added window vents for better condensation control while sleeping in it.
    I live in the woods full time now and this truck is my "plan b" if everything else falls apart. It has a lot of potential.
