    GPS used offroad

    What do you use offroad to keep track of where you are going, where you've been? I've used GAIA for the trail riding I've done and its worked pretty good. Is it perfect? No but I am running it on my iPhone (which you can also run it on any Android or iOS device with GPS) and so I don't need to have multiple charge ports (1 for a GPS unit, 1 for my phone).. just keep it charged and hundreds of possible mounts for a phone versus a certain GPS unit. NOW the negatives, obviously an iPhone is more expensive (in many cases) than a GPS unit. The function of the GPS unit is just for keepi
  2. Preheat oven to 430°F. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Season with oregano, basil, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of minced garlic. Rub seasoning all over each breast. Arrange the tomatoes and red onion around the chicken in the dish. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, sugar and remaining garlic in a jug to combine. Pour over the chicken breasts, flip each breast in the sauce to evenly coat. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts), or until no longer pink in the middle. Sprinkle with che

    Fried Lasagna

    Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook it until golden. Add the beef, garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook it for 6 minutes, and then pour the marinara sauce and add the shredded mozzarella. Cook it for another 2 minutes. Bring the water in a saucepan to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and cook the lasagna sheets according to the instructions on the package. Take them out of the water, drain them, and place them on your working surface. Slice 1 sheet in 2 thin strips. Place 1 tablespoon of beef mixture over on
  4. We have a small bit of land in Davison, MI with a beginner offroad trail that at times requires some technique to get through some tight spots. I had my wife drive our 97 Chevy 1500 pickup through the trail to see how these new blacklion tires do. Not too bad but if the mud is thick they cake pretty bad and won't clear out. So she got stuck So obviously I had to walk up to the house and get the K5 and pull her out which obviously the most difficult part was walking from the back of the property to the front. So now that I got the K5 out I can’t just drive it back and l
  5. The SBC 400 was famous for running hot and that is why they have steam holes to break up the bubbles that form at the point the cylinders are siamesed. There is nothing wrong with the design, it is just that the folks that GM sold the cars too and all subsequent consumers of this fine product tended to neglect and abuse the motor. Hence the pretzel shaped heads and cracked blocks you read about. Not the engineers fault; they work fine if you change the anti-freeeze every now and then and swap out the thermostat when it seizes closed. Try this for a budget 350 or 400 torque combo tha
  6. Ok so it’s not 4x4 and someone wants to trade me for a 91 3/4 ton 4x4. So it’s like for like (pretty much)
  7. You might want to look for a 1973-1991 Suburban chassis and this company sells a kit https://www.e-zchassisswaps.com/8 You may want to purchase the kit first since it does have a firewall piece that you'll have to cut out on your existing cab and weld in place this new piece. Would make sense to do it with all the other body work before you prime it.

  9. So many choices we have for communicating with everyone in the club/group/adventure. CB Radio is the most old school and cheapest and WAS the most popular radio found in anything offroad. Ham Radio is probably the rarest of radios in the offroad community. Just way more intense. FRS is the blister packs you get from Walmart, Meijer, Target.. basically in any store you see the two way Family Radios. About the same distance as CB but more portable. Typical output is .5 watts but they are allowed to produce up to 2 watts but good luck finding a 2watt FRS radio. GMRS i
  10. Yankee Springs has several state forest trails that you can leisurely drive on for several hours. No ORV needed, however some trails require you to have a state park pass to legally access. The DNR do patrol this area so do not drive like a crazy person. They can ticket you for erosion/destruction of property among other things. These trails are meant for hunting,hiking access, however they tolerate people driving them with 4x4 vehicles as long as they are doing it lawfully and staying on the trail.
  11. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9- by 13- by 2-inch casserole dish with cooking spray. Chop onion, bell pepper, In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef, onions and bell peppers. Add the pork and beans, barbecue sauce, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar to the mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle the bacon over the top of the casserole and cover the dish with aluminum foil then bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake for an addit
