    Idaho Outdoor Experience

    Anybody know anything about this event? 10-12 September in Bonner's Ferry, 100 bucks a head. I'm not affiliated or advertising, I just saw it on facebook and thought it looked interesting. The flyer says it has all the usual goodies, classes, trails, vendors, etc.

    Finally got out in the van

    More camping than overlanding, but we did get out for a few days on the North Fork of the Boise river. We got the chance to evaluate our planned build, and see what we're missing/what we don't actually need. One disappointing note was the amount of trash we picked up around the camp and on...

    Increasing fuel capacity

    Stupid question time... I am building a 2000 E350 4x4 van. The stock gas tank (mid-mount) has to be shortened to clear the transfer case, leaving about 30 gallons of capacity. With a V 10, that equals a pretty short range. The obvious answer is to hang some gas cans on the back, but I don't...
