@carsoffortlangley I’m late to the party and haven’t done much overlanding but have done a good deal of wheeling, backpacking, multi-night canoe expeditions and camping. A lot of what others have already said is great I’ll just add a few things.
Basic cold weather gear, especially at altitude it can get cold fast and you should be prepared
Well stocked first aid kit
Multiple ways to start a fire (lighter, matches, flint, etc)
Hatchet and Saw (either to clear obstacles or prepare firewood)
A good camping chair (this is more important than you’d think)
Things like tent, sleeping bag, mat and so on are important but vary depending on where you are and your preferences so I won’t make any recommendations other than to buy quality gear so you don’t have to buy again after a season of use.
Absolutely. 100% agree. That said, Paul Krugman in the NYT has an op-ed today in which he equates laws banning urinating in public, laws which exist in all 50 states, with mandates about wearing a mask. I haven't read the whole thing yet. While people should all take personal responsibility, and wear a mask or not pee outside, we know what the reality is. And one could make an argument that government has a role in enforcing civility and common decency. You could lump laws about anti-discrimination into that. But boy, would that be a fraught argument.
Bought this from Upgarage through Croooober a few years ago and have had it installed on my Fit until recently. It's a direct bolt-on for USDM/JDM second gen Fits. Located in Cleveland, Ohio but I'll happily ship to the US or Canada (though it may be expensive). I've currently got it listed on eBay for $125 but I'll knock it down to $100 for any Oppo members!
I finally did the writeup for the replacement vehicle, here. Read on to find out why I decided to go out on a limb and get my first PHEV! In red!
I haven't quite summoned the inspiration to write my ownership review of the vehicle. It isn't that I hate the vehicle, but I have a lot of personal things I'm working on right now that are taking the time and energy. I may get around to it in the next month or so.
