    Seriously, you sound ridiculous mentioning multiple times how much money you make and spend on your truck. No one really gives a shit. People like you are the reason "#brokeh8ers" is a joke, you're too dense to realize that people of similar resources can think differently than you.

    I showed this to my wife as an idea for the next mod to her car, shockingly she said no.

    This was the car that got me into the "overlanding" scene! It has been more places than I've taken my Tacoma actually. With 8" of ground clearance, this is what drives my point that a stock Tacoma will get most people where they want to go easily.

    This is starting to get personal and frankly stupid, so I'll just reiterate - I don't care how anyone spends their money. RTT makers need to feed their families too. lol I'll laugh at you, but that's the extent of how little I care.
    Just stop acting like "overlanding" is some new phenomena, because it's not. You have not reinvented the wheel. You're camping, whether you're pitching a tent next to your truck or on top of your truck. Get over yourself. And if others get the impression you're more in love with talking about and preparing for the activity than the activity itself, change your ways or grow a thicker skin. It's not rocket science.

    You're right. It's rocket surgery.

    The problem is people use the term overlanding to describe something incredibly normal (camping in a car/truck) to make themselves feel like they're doing something special and that takes away from the people who are actual overlanders. Going on well defined roads and trails in this country is not overlanding no matter how you cut it so the wheelers like to make fun of the "overlanders" for wasting money on what they consider useless crap (I tend to lean more into this camp) but if you wanna waste money it's yours to waste. Reality of it is most people don't need any of the shit the put on their trucks, people do it because they like it and that's fine I just think it's that term "overlanding" which immediately rubs some people the wrong way it just makes their eyes roll. There's nothing like being at that super sick spot in Alabama hills with your 60k truck and have a subaru with an RTT drive past ya.....

    And to the people talking about how much money they spent, all the overland equipment you bought does not even come close to the guys who are on LT, re-geared, have lockers, full armor, custom rear axles, etc so stop.

    You forgot the lights so you can so it doesn't feel like you're outside when you're camping. Who wants to see the stars an night anyway?

    Yeah seriously. We make jokes at camp all the time "BRO! We're overlanding!"

    It's all in good fun. There's so many levels and routes to take when building these tacos for adventure.

    The main thing is to get out and enjoy it!

    That's a sweet set up.
    I rode a Specialized S-Works M4 mountain bike with a B.O.B. trailer from New Jersey to Montana in 1999. Super fun trip. You don't miss much touring on a bicycle. It's a great way to travel.

    I forgot where it was said but I remember hearing someone describe preppers to a T,

    No matter how much shit you have, survival gear, weapons, food. What good is it to you if you do not have BASIC survival skills?

    Same with these “overland” cucks

    All the gear and amenities they’re carrying are useless for their 6 hour Instagram photoshoot.

    It must have at least 6 hours of use if they're doing that long of a photoshoot with it lol
    I agree though. Someone earlier in the thread said it best. He said something along the lines of it all being worthless if you haven't first exercised the most important tool between your ears.
