    I have one of those roll up fold up tables and love it. Only issue is if it's windy out everything on top slides around easily (had the same issue with plastic fold up tables too) so I might spray the top of mine with a rubber coating or something. Another issue I had was rigidity of the slat table top when I had my blackstone portable griddle on it - it sagged in the middle pretty bad.

    That area is one of the best places in the world to go backpacking and see prehistoric ruins

    Anyone have to deal with a bent pole in their tepui? Not sure when this happened, it's the pole that comes out over the ladder, so the top pole when I close it. Noticed it when I was airing out my tent after a rainy camping trip earlier this week. Haven't reached out to tepui yet, will be sending an email soon

    Welp. I messed up.
    Anyone know if the harbor freight ladder can be rigged to work in this scenario? It’s looking to be my only local option :facepalm: 1363FC32-A4CE-47A4-9988-941DB1674052.jpg

    I still have three more nights of camping, so fingers crossed I can rig this harbor freight one up tomorrow

    Got the Harbor Freight ladder to work with some good ole hotel parking lot engineering. The mounting eyes on the 23zero ladder slide into the top of the ladder tubes and are held in by rivets. Luckily I could hammer the rivets out, but I don’t have a drill so I couldnt screw in anything to hold the caps in the new ladder. So four zip ties on each side are gonna have to work until I get home to my tools.

    RIP to the little ladder that couldn’t.

    All the stress will be downward, so fingers crossed they hold for the three nights I need them to.

    3 nights out near Jefferson, CO... last time using the Yakima Skyrise 3 before the 23zero 56 Walkabout RTT arrives.

    Little bit of rain, some good sun, dogs wanting to chase 4 wheelers, lots of empty beers in the end.

    Was our first time with the ARB 63 fridge in the bed, went from Thursday to Sunday without killing the auxiliary battery (Off Grid Engineering dual battery kit under hood w/ Die Hard group 35 AGM as aux battery).

    Good times

    Anyone have a damaged shoe bag they're willing to give up?

    Tears are fine, I only need the part that slides into the tent "rail", and 1-2" of fabric.

    Same here. I used to carry 2x 5gal fuel cans on my swing out. Never needed them.

    Cut that weight down to an emergency 2 gal rotopax.

    The weight savings is crazy.

    Used to have my recovery gear and a spare tire on my roof. Got rid of that and not only is the weight better distributed, but the noise is gone.

    Damn, I can't imagine all that weight up there. Not to mention getting a tire off and on a roof, I'd throw my back out.

    It was when I first started building my truck and thought "all the things" we necessary.

    I agree with the sentiment of cutting out heavy things you don't need... But I often need lots of extra fuel. I don't drive around with it all the time but I often throw a couple, up to five, 5 gal cans in the bed. They fit in a nice row up against the cab where the weight distribution is about as good as it gets. I suppose not everyone lives somewhere with so much remote wilderness and so few gas stations, though.

    Everyone's situation is different!

    Though some places out here are remote, very few are more than an hour or so from fuel.

    I do often have my trailer, and can carry plenty of extra fuel on it.
