I got a new 16 pole set now. Retired the 32 pole tent.
That list took some trial and error, am I right??
I'm going to replace your 'cooler' (which I assume to mean ice box) with a 12 volt Engel cooler.
Personal experience with 3 day+ camping trips. It's easier to get to your location (often times for us this involves a good hour on a trail or back road), set up and forget about everything.
I made a folding book style solar array from 40 watt panels that I unfold once we arrive. Sit it near the cooler (which is placed in shade of course) and forget about it. I don't have to worry about ice melting and draining the cooler every few hours. Or I can run the fridge off the spare deep cycle aux battery I have installed for 5 days straight in 70+F weather and not worry about it killing the battery.
At least that was my justification to the wife why I had to spend 700$
Whoa Jesus! You picked an old thread to make your first post.
haha, i was about to comment on that.... you beat me to it
Ah the good ol' days!! I miss MMD and XJR
as long as we are here........... knife, gun, tent, ammo, rain gear, ...........fridge, tv, and 200 miles of extension cord...........
Whatever happened to XJR? Totally forgot about him and his dry sense of humor.
He got a Jeep Rubicon then sold the Raptor for a Grand Cherokee. He's gone Jeeper on us!!
