A bit different

20220420_151425.jpg

I’ve been working on this for a paint pal, like a secret santa. 12 artists from around the world are painting for a random artist. This is going to an artist in Europe. Wanted to do something that represents radio.

FT70DR

Seems many here have an FT70DR or are about to get one.
Figured I’d share something I found. I edc the FT70 in my backpack and 2as worried about it being punced around in the main compartment. The 5.11 radio pouch that worked for the UV-5R obviously doesn’t fit it. So I swung into my local 5.11 one afternoon on my way home, looking for anything that would work. They showed me this flexcuff case. It fits perfectly, also fits my FT5D. Should fit the 3 and possibly the 2 also. You have to off center the flap if you leave the antenna on. The antenna easily slips between the elastic bands on the side and the fabric pretty securely if its inside a pack

Hello from a NH Newbie

Hello All. I am new to Overlanding and I am hoping to get my DMR/HF/APRS equipped 4×4 pickup with a tent on the back out and about as soon as the weather permits. Starting small. Cross country is the goal. Looking forward to checking in. 73’s Jonathan/N1RIJ.

Don’t discount the KL Trailhawk

65762.jpeg

Just wanted to say that the Cherokee KL Trailhawk isn’t seriously considered by many as a worthy crossover SUV for getting out in the mud and rocks and for a potential overlanding vehicle.

A few friends and I went out this past Sunday to put my newly lifted larger sized tire 2026 KL through it’s paces in SE Ohio on unimproved county roads. These have devolved into little more than goat paths and a line on a map.

Take a look at KL videos on YouTube and see the attached photos. I went where the Gladiator and JK went this weekend. Didn’t get stuck or even stopped once.

Tire size is now 31.5″ Falken Wildpeak A/3T. The lift is a cheaper (often maligned) “leveling kit”. I have about a full 12″ under the vehicle as well as factory locker in the rear.

The KL is not perfect for family groups, it’s not roomy but the seats fold flat enough for a tall person (singular) to be comfy, on the passenger side if camping in the car.

Anyway, it surprised the other folks on our outing and proved to me I can go a lot of places my 11 year old JK 4-door could go.

I also have the 2.4 L Tiger shark and had zero issues with power.

Smoking a turkey, and cooking up char cloth. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hello fellow overlanders!

It was a pleasure meeting Mike AA1PR on the talkgroup this morning. Here is a picture of my Jeep to get the intro going. This picture was taken shortly after I got this one. I have another one also that doesn’t run that I have had for a long time.

Weekend Camping Mt. St. Helen’s

A short trip into the Gifford Pinchot forest for some truck camping. Hope everyone is getting out even though the weather is turning. Great time to enjoy the wilderness with fewer people.
