    Starlink on overland rack: Old vs New Style?

    I don’t have any experience with the new dish, but as far as moving to align, it’s designed to be at a fixed angle and for the user to turn it in the correct orientation. My experience with my previous generation regular dish nearly flat mounted at about the same angle inside a box on the roof...

    Someone explain why GAIA gets so much love

    I’ve been using Guru maps as an attempt to move away from Gaia as they have sadly been focused on feature and layer bloat instead of usability and functionality! Guru doesn’t have as many possible layers but tracks, routes and waypoint just work, not to mention a SOLID MacOS app. Sent from my...

    Overland Solar Tracking System

    Very interesting idea! I would have to seriously consider the value of this system, read added cost vs flat mounted panels vs the return. The quality of your numbers and actual users' experiences would be critical. Then, the match would have to be how much of a premium your system is vs a...

    Best hoses and connectors for plumbing a water system?

    Another vote for PEX, but with a few comments; Not all PEX is created equal, and I found a high-quality PEX pipe dealing with a commercial brewery/food prep contractor. It was noticeably better than the Lowes/HD stuff) The ability to run a full length between connection points, even turning...

    Best sturdy camp table?

    We have the large camping table from MEC (the Canadian REI) which folds to nothing, has adjustable legs and is very light weight. Sometimes the legs get sand in the adjustment tracks which make it a little more painful, but otherwise it’s the perfect table. I suspect this is made by a...

    Design/Layout Feedback for a First-time Camper build

    You “likely” would be happy to sleep east-west for shorter trips, but I’d be more hesitant on longer trips or as a remote work “home”. I have played with the idea of an expanding platform that is 3’ wide and east-west but expand to a north-south 6’ long bed, that expands over a dinette or...

    "Cold Spring" Oregon ... appropriately named - of course, it's not -45ºC of the Canadian prairies, but then again, that's why I'm not there :)

    Total Composites flatbed build

    "...too much responsibility in the hands of the end-user." :ROFLMAO: I would really appreciate any extra photos or dimensions. I would also appreciate it if you had and could share any part number, etc. so I can try to locate that setup. Of course, I could just buy a Trekker if there isn't...

    Total Composites flatbed build

    First, great build and it’s awesome that you are sharing! Weird question, but would you have more photos of the Wrappon mechanism? I’m trying to understand what you bought, and what would have to be removed from a Trekker. Are the “components” you bought just limited to the mechanism that...

    Severe weather or other safety alerts to your InReach, Zoleo, etc.

    Hey Williaty, We have not forgotten you! We have had a couple of conversations with the Bivy team, are reviewing the API (the computer communication protocol) to allow our service to get the location data from Bivy and will have a much better idea of how much work it will require sometime over...

    First Starlink T-Mobile Cellular Satellites Launched - Broadband in your Pocket Everywhere?

    You may know that I have been following this space quite carefully for a few years and have a Starlink system that I use regularly while travelling in remote areas. The Startlink/T-Mobile partnership in the U.S. and Starlink/Rogers partnership in Canada have the potential to be game-changing...

    Severe weather or other safety alerts to your InReach, Zoleo, etc.

    It is great to get such positive feedback, even as we know we still have a lot of work to do before our solution is where we want it to be, where we know it can be. As you know, we keep an eye on the alerts we issue to ensure our users get the potentially life-saving alerts and ensure the...
