When we left the action, I was still assessing the situation in regards to making the Troopercabra road legal and worthy. To no one’s surprise, the more I tinkered, the more issues I found. Nothing found so far has made this a deal-breaker, but the list is now longer than Santa’s.
Told you it would be soon.
Aaaand the “Swell” puns stop. Alright, here is what I am going to ATTEMPT to do: write this trip report up in a way that is both interesting, picture filled, informative and most of all brief.
The third and final installment in the series. I was planning to do 4 (4 days 4 videos) but day 4 wasn’t too special so I wrapped it up in this one.
Well, we got the video together for part 1 of our trip to Overland Expo East.
Recently as I was driving I noticed a lot of clunking up front so I went to investigate and found that my front passenger shock bushings were...um...gone.
Coyote Flats is at about 10,000 feet of elevation. At that elevation, even when the valley below (itself at about 4,000 feet) is baking hot, Coyote Flats is generally fairly cool and refreshing and nights are quite cold. Due to the cold, we all went to bed fairly early, which meant I woke up pretty early the next day.
The Soft Roaders and Houston Overland had a successful trip through the Texas Hill Country situated west of Austin and North of San Antonio at the end of September. This year’s trip was a tour of some Hill Country Breweries combined with the scenic roads of the Hill Country.
Day 2 was hearty and lots of fun
A few things that might be useful for those looking to install a sub tank into the LC 80 series.
And snapped these. Quite the adventure, I know. Bonus: kitteh photos.
Oh man! I gotta follow HHFP’s video... Not fair.
Stories and pics coming soon. Parts 2 through 4 this week I hope
Well, I’ve been pretty absent.. I haven’t spent a weekend at home in a month and I wont until a month from now. Aux tank is done, less one tweek to get a breather on so it doesn’t leak as I’m pumping fuel in and at the point it gets full that last blip of pressure pushes some fuel out somewhere.
Do you feel the call of the wild? Yeah, good. So do we.
This is the new Hino 300 4x4 Crew cab, just been launched here in Oz. Hino is of course a Toyota brand.
I had been thinking of a Coyote Flats trip for awhile and finally decided on the weekend after Labor Day as the time for the trip. Knowing that the trip would be rougher than some of the other trails I’ve run, I decided that it would be nice to have the extra capabilities of a GX 460 for the trail.
