Ok, so what’s this page all about? Travel. Unimogs. Motorcycling. Cool things. Whatever I feel like. Feel free to follow along for more on events, trails, food, drink, gardening, shooting, cleaning, making, wrenching, and whatever else I bother writing about.
This old beast is a 1974 Mercedes Benz Unimog 404, essentially a fast road tractor set up as a troop carrier for the German army. Mogs are slow, noisy, nearly unstoppable, and a whole lot of fun to drive. Last summer, I purchased a radio enclosure converted to a camper by the previous owner. It came outfitted with a Westfalia pop-top and wooden cabinetry with a sink, oven, heater, and stove. Since then, I’ve added two DC fridges, new group 29 deep cycle batteries, GC2 batteries, inverter, solar, a woodstove, and a small air conditioner.
What’s to come? Solar panels, a lot of other miscellaneous mechanical and electrical projects, and of course, traveling.
