I <3 discounts.

Case in point.... I picked up a pair of relentless sliders for 200 from a guy in Ohio. while they aren't "new", I'll take the 500 or so bucks saved and make it a weekend project of sanding them down and painting them since my buddy Kase told me he'd weld them on for me haha.

I'm also going to look at a brand new in box bestop soft top for almost 50% off since my other canvas decided that it wanted to rip.

This has been awesome. Thanks for sharing your adventure.
Is there a timeframe when you need to end this walkabout ?
And where do you call home and hang your hat ?
Thanks again, much appreciate your posting and keeping up with updates.

I always smoke a nice cigar while doing some derp and drinking. All I have left to derp is my rear bumper but I cant find any plasti dip around me . there are a few members selling bed racks but your back on the other side of the state to get a look at one. I haven't updated my build yet but for shits and giggles I derped my scuff plastes and there holding up pretty damn good

Thanksgiving haha. Can't miss all of deer season either. I am staying outside of Houston pretty close to Galveston, but things may be changing a lot here soon with a few offers from various jobs.

I have a few more plans on off roading and places to visit, but for the most part it's been a real blast seeing everything even though it's been a whirlwind. It gives me a good gauge of places to revisit and/or spend more time at as well as introduced me to some pretty cool people.

I still have to do the ALCAN and get Alaska since it's literally the only state i have left to see..... (hint hint)

yeah, kase makes pretty solid ones for 250 out of columbus. i thought it was funny that the alignment place didn't reinstall my skid plate and when i went to get the 15k today, i asked the service guys to reinstall it. it was bent and dented and scuffed to shit and they kinda looked at me sideways, and the only thing i could muster was "well clearly i use it". i think i'm gonna have to upgrade to a full skid....

Alcan is a must. I entered Canada from Montana so i could check out the Blue rockies, then worked my was west to British Columbia and headed towards the yukon. British Columbia is a beautiful place and should not be missed by any traveler.

Haha.. Amazed there's so much interest.

I've built up my own Old Man Doug Leaf packs; essentially putting in 3 leafs per side out of a junkyard find F150 Pack. Pretty impressed so far, and with only $75 invested, they're definitely hard to beat..
