    My wife's Hawkeyes are on national TV tonight. Hoping for a twofer of great games now that my chores are all done. Bike is clean, tent put away, tools stashed and rugs in the house all de-dog-furred.

    It's the time of the season for our golden to change to his winter sweater and the undercoat fur is ridiculous.

    Good news boys

    Advrider now has the four wheel and camping sub forums, so I’m back in the target demo

    I even spotted a couple of you loons down there, eh. Someone’s got a nice pickup.

    Operation Expedition Portal overthrow underway.
    It shouldn’t be long until we have everyone convinced they need a trophy truck if they’re going to pull into a dirt parking lot :bert

    I won’t be caught dead without my trophy truck. I have a gravel driveway- so I can’t drive anything else anyway

    I gotta lift my Xterra 2" so I get the correct departure angle for my angled concrete driveway. It's the only way to be sure.

    There were several people sleeping on top of lifted overlanders at the campground last weekend. I just don't get the point of needing an eight foot ladder to get into your tent.

    Seriously, that has to be the stupidest camping trend of my lifetime. If you are that afraid of bears, just sleep with your fucking piece. Not that a bear has any problem climbing on a truck anyway.

    You might need to request a brodozer subforum.

    :photog:lol3:jack:clap:rofl:imaposer

    The last place I want to be in this part of the country is laying on top of a hot vehicle in a folding box at night in the humidity. Out west in the arid, and the altitude, sure...ok...whatever.

    Any type of camping east of North Platte needs access to A/C because there are only about a dozen good days to camp.

    What a stupid investment.

    Yard is recovered in acorns, plus leaves. Beach, and maples have lost most of leaves. Still poor color, a few specimen trees - maples.

    My girls miss me and I took Ashley’s bike on some harder stuff.... it’s no ktm 300! :lol3
    I did go ride with 4 dudes today and only one of them could kinda keep up with the venerable CRF100F! He was on a 350sxf, there was a beta 300rr race edition, a wr450f and cr250r :clap

    Disclaimer I’m PUI

    The benefit of rooftop tents is that everyone around you knows you are a big deal, and can be found @instagram or whTever #

    As far as being afraid of bears @Grreatdog youre in Wisconsin right? We don’t have grizzly bears. Grizzly bears aren’t afraid of much- but they are fucking terrified of 8 ft ladders that go to the top of Toyota’s.
