Hi all. Ryan had asked me to post about my experience studying for my Ham license. So here goes, Please excuse my rambling information, I am not much for proper grammar or ability to put words into a written format, I just try my best not to sound li...
Some people think go big or go home right? But in Wisconsin, I've learned that anything over 35's is pretty much a waste. Much of the trails here aren't hard enough to go bigger. Most of the road driving is easier on 35's. Less stuff breaks in the dr...

So this is just an opinion on the ham vs cb by a person that really hates talking on even the phone. When I used to belong to a Miata club, it was always strongly encouraged to have a cb for the group rides. Of course I bought one. At the time I p...

I just buried my jeep and after struggling to winch myself out I noticed my factory alternator just doesn't put out enough power and my recovery took longer than it should have so if anyone's interested I have 2 tred brand traction boards that have b...
I've cancelled the rides and refunded the orders for the overlanding tour and March ride at Sinawa. As I'm only one person, I can't host rides, process memberships, work on the site, work on the nonprofit paperwork, making shirts, making signs, etc. ...
Doing recovery as an essential part of what we do. I'm a cheapskate on some stuff, not going to lie. One of those things should not be a winch. We winch a lot and my vehicle winches a lot. We teach winching, we like trying trails and having a win...

I'm just getting into the off-road 4X4 hobby and do not have anything in my rig (1978 CJ5) for communication on a guided trail ride. I'm guessing HAM radio is the "best" method of communication but also requires some time commitment to get...
