Get Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine on the App StoreWalking into an outdoor store in search of a new sleeping bag can be overwhelming, even if you’re a seasoned camper. Between quilts, blankets, mummy bags, rectangular bags, and more, it can be tough to figure out what’s best. Whether you’re planning on driving to the trailhead and carrying everything with you, pulling into a campground, or curling up in the back of your truck for a good night’s sleep under the stars, ask yourself these questions to help you choose the right sleeping bag for you.

The red dirt state isn’t exactly known for being an off-road expedition destination.

Get Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine on the App StoreFor many people CruiserFest once again started with the trail rides. Groups met in Moab, UT; City of Rocks, ID; Grand Junction and Denver, CO, and spent as many as five days overland.

Get Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine on the App StoreWe had a long day of driving as we made our way to Ouray, CO. We had spent 3 days at the Grand Canyon South Rim and one night near Monument Valley. Our mini-convoy of three FJs from S. California rounded that final corner off the 550 highway into Ouray and I was excited. We had finally arrived at another FJ Summit, my 4th. We parked the FJs and walked into the vendor area, caught many familiar faces and exchanged greetings. Attendees were lining up for dinner at FJ Summit headquarters, Twin Peaks Lodge while others were browsing vendor booths. You could sense everyone was ready to hit some trails and make memories with new and old friends.

The TCT Explorer Tundra just flipped 15,000 miles. It’s been quite a journey for our family and our this amazing truck since the first 2,000 miles (Apirl 2015).

Our mod list for this rig is nearly complete. The only two items left are the backordered Budbuilt Full skid plates, and the Transfer Flow 46 gallon replacement fuel tank, which his sitting in my garage. Like I said, we’ve been busy.

Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine Fall 2015

To paraphrase Charles Dickens, ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was a weekend of sunshine, it was a weekend of rain (a lot or rain, oh and there was the snow too!).’  Despite the less than desirable weather, the Overland Expo team pulled off an amazing event.  I think the weather actually brought everyone closer together.  In fact, I don’t remember seeing anyone angry or frustrated due to the weather.  I do remember seeing a lot of smiling faces, and I am positive I was grinning from ear to ear the entire weekend. This weather helped me, at least, slow down and really take my time to talk to the instructors, vendors, and attendees. 

In 1894 David W. Brunton, a geologist working in Colorado, revolutionized modern navigation with the introduction of the Pocket Transit.  Geologists and engineers of the time routinely carried around survey transits and compasses, tripods, clinometers, and plane tables while developing exploratory mineral maps.  Originally manufactured for Mr. Brunton by Wm. Ainsworth & Sons, the Brunton Pocket Transit successfully combined the ability to measure compass bearings, horizontal and vertical angles, and obtain clinometer readings into an ‘instrument sufficiently small and light to be carried in a vest pocket.’  The Pocket Transit virtually eliminated the need for tripods, or an assistant, to sight and read the bearing of distant objects and was built strong enough to remain accurate in the most demanding of professions.
