This weekend I channeled my inner teenager to make another fort. Only this time I made it inside the back of my 2004 Land Rover Discovery.
We did it! We spent 3 whole days in one spot and now we know we’re READY to move on. The city is not for us, but we also enjoyed walking to get tacos and margaritas. Tomorrow we hope to visit the historic Cabo San Lucas Costco to try some authentica pizza.... Don’t judge me.
My golden retriever, Sadie, has massive anxiety over fireworks and my neighborhood tends to sound like a warzone days leading up to and beyond the US independence day holiday, July 4. I decided maybe heading out would be a good idea, and since the Land Cruiser has been eternally down while I pull the injection pump…
Im SOOOOOO aching for a tour. Its killing me. The problem has been the weekends haven’t worked out, and also the weeks. Thankfully the cruiser is running well and back in action as the prime adventure machine...such as they are. Today’s taste of the touring life comes from a quick trip up to wasatch mountain state…
Finally got around to putting my OPPO and O&E stickers on.
The fact that we are able to travel for (hopefully) a year still does not feel real. We have finally reached a point that is further than either of us have ever been. We are settling into the truck and where everything is and starting to become efficient with it.
Thank goodness we used some good Wifi to upload this one before we hit the border. I’m posting this from a place called the Old Mill in their parking lot as we found the only spot that it seems to sorta work. Viva Baja!
So, I’m on the hunt right now... Feel like it’s time to let my old Pathfinder go and get something newer/safer/more reliable. Drove a ‘15 Xterra Pro-4X manual last night - was a really nice truck, in great shape, and felt 10x better than the Frontier I drove a few months back, but I still prefer the manual in the…
Been a while... Time to clear out the iPad.
Seat covers are something that gets fitted to every vehicle I’ve ever had anything to do with. Whether to protect the pristine factory upholstery from my filthy habits or to protect my nether regions from some seriously utilitarian, blazing hot and cracked vinyl seating (looking at you, Lada). Doesn’t matter...they…
Hey O&E...what do we know about winches?
A little over a year ago, I did a stupid and bought a 2001 Land Rover Discovery 2 from a shady used car dealer. What was supposed to be a holiday romance ended up being a long term relationship. Here is how it has gone so far.
Katie and I put in for pronghorn doe tags this year in Wyoming. We were successful! But it got me thinking that this is the kind of trip where I will regret not having my truck. Heck, it has me regretting buying her Subaru Impreza instead of the Crosstrek. At the time I figured if I needed a few extra inches of ground…
LSTJ put this out on their facebook page today. It kind of highlights the whole weekend last month.
If you’ve ever thought about coming to Texas for this event, you should do it. It’s tons of fun!
Mum’s Nissan has a new home in our driveway. However, its change in venue has already had repercussions.
Time to play catch up. We head to Canada to cut our roof off of Goose. NO REALLY, WE DO IT. ;-)
Nothing too fancy here. Set up the Springbar for a family backyard camp and I wanted to film me taking it down so that people who are considering something like this has a reasonable expectation on what’s involved and the pros and cons.
