    Our 4x4 turbodiesel v6, high top 144 with a rack, suspension lift, oversize tires and ladder on the side gets around 15-17 if we keep it under 70 mph. Cruising at 80+ it's going to do more like 12. Not the ideal commuter. Was getting 18-20 before we converted it. Wet weight is about 8500lbs.

    Quite pleased with my first catch I must say...

    You know they spent a good amount of time getting the right rotation on the traction ladders before posting to Instagram

    Plus, that one makes it look like the Jeep is a wind-up toy.

    Patriot Campers? Combat Crawler? I think this one won the multiplier, gets to lay down a card and a earned an extra ball.

    WTF is the purpose of the ladder starting at 6 high and blocked by the spare tire?

    OG GOTOS is on the primary vehicle. Trailer GOTOS is kind of a different category.

    I don’t know. The trailer in telee’s find should serve as some sort of multiplier. It’d be different if it was stand-alone.

    Its Tap's game and Tap's rules so I concede to his ruling. My find is so unique it may just have to be a foot note. My wife was pretty embarrassed as I hauled ass across the parking lot (drift boat in tow) to get photos of the white whale.

    Combat Crawler + Commando decals, with the Oscar Mike styling, should be worth extra points.

    The spare tire fanny packs are one of the things that really cracks me up. Haven't seen that much before, but I guess it's becoming a trend? Also, like that Sprinter doesn't have enough room inside for like, well, ALL that stuff?! As a former owner of a Sprinter 4x4 work van, I find the whole GOTOS on the Sprinters particularly comical. Those things have so much freaking room inside. Would swallow up long lumber and extension ladders like a boss. These guys have hot tubs, huge leather sectional couches, and jumbo flatscreen TVs getting in the way or something that they have to tack literally everything on to the exterior?

    This is modern "campers" in a nutshell (Pete's trailer from a Goofy Movie):

    Out of all the stuff people buy to hang on their cars that will probably never get used or could be stored on the inside of their bug out vehicles, the spare tire back pack is not something Im going to make fun of. Especially if it is being used for its intended purpose. Especially these days. Yes, I own and use one.

    They are primarily for garbage transport and every time I see one, I think some might actually be practicing pack it in, pack it out principles. Around here, with all the new outdoorsy people, there is trash and human shit all over anywhere close to a road. I have one of those old people can grabbers and a small spade in my Trasharoo so when I get to where ever we want to camp, I spend a few minutes scooping the human and dog shit from around the camp so my dog doesnt eat or roll in it. Then I spend a few minutes can grabbing the litter so I dont go the whole night staring at trash and being pissed about how lazy our society is. No way do I want to store someone elses shit and toilet paper inside my vehicle on a trip. I used to bury that stuff but lately Ive found that its getting hard around dispersed sites to turn up dirt without turds already there.

    Were a gross society. Plus those backpacks make fine firewood foraging collectors when you see something worth burning and you pull over quick and throw a couple pieces of wood in the backpack.

    Really a good accessory for leaving things better than you found them. I wish all these new overlanders and RVers would spend the $50 on the backpack instead of the $300 on traction plates or more off-road lighting.

    But mine also doesnt live on the back of my car getting sun faded and brittle. Its only on if were going car camping and then it gets sprayed out and stored when the trip is done. Ive walked by some of those in town and they stink.

    I agree that in theory those backpack trash bags are a useful idea - but what do you do when camping where there are bears? Do you move that bag every night inside the vehicle? (and every time you leave the vehicle unattended?) Even raccoons will get into that.

    20 mm ammo can and compactor bags for trash if were somewhere with scavenger issues. But if there were scavenger issues with poop, I wouldnt have to scoop it up.
