This edition of Three Cool things is all about simplifying your camp experience. If you are overlanding in a car or van, your camp set up often includes many of the luxuries of home.

The items you choose become precious. Their weight and size matter.

2017 RIDING SEASON IS HERE

If you are anything like me you typically spend the winter months planning epic rides for when the weather starts to cooperate with motorcycling a bit more. Many times I pushed that a little too hard; Starting a big ride just a bit to early in the season. I am always optimistically thinking... "as long as we head South it will get warmer", painfully neglecting the idea that you have to ride North to get back home. You can read about a fun early season trip I took down to ride the Tail of the Dragon, that I called The Soggy Throttle 2000, here.
