    2019 Haspin

    I'm going to try to make it. Just noticed that my last post here was in 2016, and I think my most recent rally was GA somewhere around 2011? Yikes!

    Another M105 trailer modification- add Unimog Radio Box

    Quite nice, Bob. The pics and ideas are really getting the creative juices flowing in my head. Side note... I have a PRC 320 set headed in my direction. Scheduled delivery date 12 JAN 16.

    Another M105 trailer modification- add Unimog Radio Box

    Well, I do have another 10 months to put the screws to the boss. Maybe I'll have more reason to fight for it if we get some updates to this thread! (See what I did there? ;-))​

    Another M105 trailer modification- add Unimog Radio Box

    Work, man... The Chief is out of the shop more often than not between OCT and JAN every year, and I need to stick around to keep the place running. Though we did talk about actually shutting down so I could take a vacation this year. (We TALKED about it...)

    Tall people in an M715

    Not exactly full size... More like a Dodge Dakota. I have more trouble with the cab width than height. I used to bump my elbows into the door and battery box while turning, until I got used to it. Even short people have trouble getting in and out without getting brained on the side window...

    Hello from Columbus, OH!

    Kip, you've been threatening to host a real rally for hundreds of years. Time to start cuttin' more trails at the farm, ain't it? :doghead: :gimp: :tinkerbell:

    2012 Anti-haspin rally

    Here are a few more pics of the weekend. Sad to say these were the only real pics I took the whole time I was there. I didn't even think to snap a pic of the lineup of trucks in the field. I hope someone else was more on the ball than I was.

    2012 Anti-haspin rally

    Sure, a lot of us wanted to go to haspin, but we had other commitments, or the bank account was too low. A few of us decided to go for a mini rally on the same weekend, do it close to home, and on the cheap. Hopefully everyone who was there will chime in. I'm terrible with names. I think...

    what do you use for outback comms?

    Depending on how remote we're talking, you'll likely need HF with a license. I don't recommend just buying the gear and stashing it "just in case" because you won't have a clue how to operate it when the time comes. There is a learning curve. By the way, VHF works line-of sight. Not the best...

    Can I turn an M35 into a family hauling, 5th wheel camper towing rig for under $12K?
