      Driving without a Tach in my Troopy wasn't bad at all, but I wanted one. I ended up installing a Diesel spec'd TinyTach. Simple and relatively inexpensive. I don't look at it much now, but it was great when first installed to confirm HWY RPMs...

      Hey I am going to make another suggestion. If you can swing it go to Villa de Leyva. Some of the most awesome fossils found in this hemisphere there. I bought a piece of coprolite there and had some excellent trout too. Very nice little...

      We went to villa de Leyva and liked it so much….we went back. A great little town with hiking right out your door. Enjoyed an opera in the town square one evening. I could spend a lot of time there for sure.

      Things in Colombia are going great. The country is absolutely beautiful and the people are pretty much the nicest folks I’ve ever met. We were invited to attend the first ever Colombia car camping (overland) festival near Puerto Barrios...

      I struggle with Gaia as well. I usually use Garmin Connect to create routes then export the .gpx file and upload to Gaia. I also find it easier to work on a PC and not a phone. The phone interface is not too intuitive. Sometimes you have to...

      The route so far in Colombia. There is a missing part. I’m struggling with Gaia. If anyones an expert I’d love a lesson.

      What makes the troopy so special to me is of course cutting the roof off and adding the Alu-Cab Hercules. Knowing the right place to have it done is key. And for me that place is The Fit Garage with @Willis. They were Awesome. Highly recommend...

      Starting a build on my newly acquired 1996 HZJ75 Troopy. I've wanted one for a long time for travel. this one should be a great starting foundation. Its LHD with a 1HZ engine and 49,000 miles!

      Alejandro at overland embassy had a pair of original sidesteps to use with the arb side protection. His dad has an on-site body shop. Painted and installed for $200. Picture is prior paint. Nice to have these to access the roof boxes. All is...

      Yesterday the troopy loaded onto a container in Panama City bound for Cartagena Colombia. It should be out of the port in Cartagena BY 10/16. We used a company called Overland Embyssy for the logistical,work. The price was $2100 which includes...
