    All are great tents. But the group buy for CVT will have some nice discounts

    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. :)

    That's bummer on the topper. I don't blame you I got an all pro bed rack bolt on for 300 what they cost $499 plus shipping. brought it home sanded the old paint in most spots and smoothed it out and repainted. love it.

    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..
