I’ve watched a bunch of videos where guys fix the rusted body panels and sub-structures. I guess it is my turn.
… instead of shutting up, I drone on more about my desire to have a new bumper, a storage box/bed, and installing D-rings.
Closed Cell Marine Grade Neoprene Foam. Its as awesome as it sounds.
I’ve been sidelined by a knee surgery. I’ve had an issue for a while (over a year) and I decided it was finally time to get it sorted out. So while I convelese, I thought I’d put up a post detailing what I believe to be a mostly concise list of repairs that are required[…]
“The panel “wants” to go back the way it started.” he said admiring the job.
About a mile later I got a very satisfying crunch sound. “I guess its broken now,” I thought to myself.
I drive to VZD’s nearly every Monday at 11:00am for lunch. (Hint: if you want to talk about Land Rovers I sit at the bar). On the way to the restaurant on N.W. 42nd Street a block East from Western Avenue sits a Jeep Grand
Cherokee Wagoneer. Its been there for nearly a year, maybe longer. I was admiring it as I always do when I noticed a for sale sign.
I love the Jeep Grand
Cherokee’s Wagoneer from the 1980’s. They were in the early running when I was shopping for my first 4×4 in 1999. So naturally I was curious to see what the owner wanted for this beauty. I was thinking, if it’s in the neighborhood of 5,000$(US) I might just buy it. […]
Woot! I just had to update the blog. I put the stove together tonight and fired it up. That’s the lovely blue flame of white gas. The stove is officially done. Now it’s on to fixing the lantern. Gearing Up for SCARR, Part One. Thanks for reading and Happy cooking Rovering.
I’ve been getting my kit together for S.C.A.R.R. the past few weeks. I am going to be putting up a few posts about new, new-old, and old kit for the trip.
Coleman Cooking Stove
I’ve been reading posts from Land Cruising Adventure. Karin-Marijke, Coen, and their Toyota Land Cruiser BJ45 have been overlanding since 2003. An amazing fete’ if you ask me. So amazing, Expedition Portal named them Overlander’s of the Year for 2013. I subscribe to Overland Journal and love to read and see the adventures. Their reviews of gear each issue and in their yearly Gear Issue are most of the reason I am a subscriber.
They have a great site and I highly encourage you to go over and visit. In a recent post they were featured in Overland Journal’s gear issue. Overland Journal asked Overlander’s what was their “Most Valued” gear. Karin and Coen picked their Coleman Camp Stove.
After reading their post about their Coleman stove I had to go find the one my dad left to me. It had been in the attic of the Newcastle house since we moved back home from Guam in 1971. I think my dad used it once on a hunting trip with my Uncle Ben in the early 1970s, but I need to confirm that. I have my dad’s Coleman Lantern too. I know we used it a few times in the early 1970s when our power got knocked out from some blizzards and a thunderstorm or two. It’s safe to say it hasn’t been lit since 1975. […]
I was grounded this weekend with what is probably bronchial pneumonia. Lots of coughing, a very high heart rate from the medications, and an overall very tired feeling. Being relegated to the couch and bed all weekend, I watched a lot of television. I watched an entire afternoon of Star Wars movies. Episode 4 and Episode 5 mostly. I’m not a fan of
The Muppet Show Episode 6 due to the ridiculous effort to cutesy-fy the franchise and merchandise the crap out of it. Okay back to the main point I came here to write.
The Millennium Falcon is obviously a Land Rover.
By now you must be saying “What.the.hell?” So hear me out…. […]
