I always laugh when these clowns have mud tires on their trailers and street tires on their vehicles.

For the cost of that trailer and all of that crap, the owner could have bought a Land Cruiser and taken an actual "expedition" to Tierra del Fuego and back.

Are there KOA campgrounds in Central and South America?

Where's the drone launching/landing pad with go-go-gadget drone quick release?

We've all seen those ugly home additions that look like add-ons:


In the Overlanding Adventure World, that look is actually desirable for some reason:

Which configuration makes more sense to you?

A?:


Or B?:


The Overlanding Adventurist World overwhelmingly chooses A.

What a pathetic attempt at charm.

Rookie doesn't even have propane.

And enjoy using that table when seated on that stool.

No way. I call bullshit. Even with the power of a tandem, that trailer would be impossible to pull on even the slightest of inclines.

Also, which is more fantasyland: the bike trailer or the mountain bike tandem?

Oh look, it's soooo open. I could be cooking over here and still be able to see the kids playing over there.

Here's another bullshit posed pathetic attempt at charm:


Do you really think that hipster fuck could that trailer on that bike? Just pulling the cooler would be a herculean task. Look at the bike too. It's not even a mountain bike with very low granny gearing. There's no way he could pull that trailer.

I know I am a wuss, but even hoisting a 50-lb kayak on top of far lower D1/LR4 roof takes a bit of an effort. This boat has to be at least twice that, even without the drone landing pad.

Peter, don't be a simpleton. He just backs the trailer down the boat ramp and floats the dingy off.

Speaking of campers and bikes, I always thought this pic was badass.


Guess it depends on how far you're going.

No kidding. I struggle lifting a 1650 that just has our sleeping bags, pads, and pillows onto the roof of my D90.

The only reasonable deployment scenario I could come up with was slamming the brakes real hard right at the waterline.
It still does not cover getting that dinghy up on top.

The other funny photo is that cluster of a campsite behind an Element. Back when these POS were in vogue, one of my friends bought it (he only had one kid and a dog then). I was blown away by how little interior space can be in a vehicle the size of Disco 1.

That's because we could fit two of you into one 1650.

An incline would be hilarious, but not as much as a decline. Because brakes and steering, not so much.
