    Hey guys I need some advice
    Ive got 5 days left before I leave for my hunting trip
    I've only got 600 lb rate springs up front and deaver leaf springs with full skids so I'm already overloaded....

    Our spot is about 600 miles away and we'll be there with zero infrastructure for up to ten days

    Not sure how to pack extremely light for ten days... I'm thinking I'll have to take a trailer to pack up camp.

    This was much easier before we sold the motor home with a fridge haha

    Getting started
    If you can get an RV up there, take a trailer, you can have less worry about the truck, and be more comfortable.

    While taking the skids off would save a couple pounds.... I JUST put them on.
    With loctite.
    And cranked everything down to PFT torque rating.

    After laying everything out and seeing the mess...
    We've decided not to partake in MRE constipation and were just gonna throw the Rhino on the trailer & pack up, then set up my bed tent and shower hut and leave it all parked at camp.
    Soon soon I'll have my RTT over a bed rack

    Just picked up 2 hotcore T-200 sleeping bags, haven't seen to many reviews on them but seem to be good quality, rated for -10*C, smallest pack I've seen, and only 3lb, trying to get out for a night this weekend to test them out

    does anyone make their own maps when overlanding? all i want to do is draw on google maps my route, but its wayyyyyy too full of b.s.


    or maybe a different way of editing maps so the desired route is highlighted?

    Do you mean making your map as you go on the trail or making the map at home before you head out?

    I've used google earth a bit, not google maps. Usually I use my family's TOPO software, but it's maybe a little pricey and inefficient for what you are doing right now. They used to have an online version but it looks like they've merged with Trails.com, so you could check there but I don't know if you can draw routes on the maps.
