    Crisis in our national parks: how tourists are loving nature to death

    Suck it up folks. Your making overlanding so inclusive and popular has come back and bitten you. There used to be gate keepers this is exactly why. Yall already ruined it for me years ago when yall normalized passenger cars on trails calling it soft roading.

    Minimum EV Range Requirement for Touring Western U.S.

    BEWARE of knock off Yaesu on eBay!

    I thought yaesu was already a knockoff of baofeng which is already a rip off of midland. Funny thing is China isn't even stealling the intellectual property, those companies decided to contract work to China. If you don't know by now 1 factory in China can make the same thing for like 5...

    Slow Down! Your OHV Driving is Killing Trees! (errr, maybe it’s the drought tho?)

    So I get berated when I've said there needs to be gatekeepers on the trail and here yall are begging for them due to sxs. Guess what a convoy of overlanding vehicles doing 60mph down trails isn't helping either and I see it all the time, a row of 20 jeeps or tacomas etc coming down the trail...

    The Status of Overlanding Today

    Perfect off-highway tire = LTX? What?

    If you believe they are great use them. Some of us have found that these types of "at" tires don't work where we go. I've personally spent a small fortune on finding the right offroad tire for my use. I have 3 vehicles and all 3 use a mud tire My main rig a chevy colorado uses firestone...

    I vote keep the Colorado, slow down on trails and enjoy the view. Adapt And learn to pack only what you need. And if solid axle is that big a deal a 65" wide dana axle from a gladiator fits if you know what your doing. With dual lockers, 4.10 gearing and in 4low you should have no problem...
