Now, lest you think it is all sitting in the garage, oh no, simply not the case.  We go exploring.  Somewhere there is a post about the adventures of the Grand Canyon.  Cool area to take a Jeep.

Part of the exploring led us to Overlan Expo West.    What is “over-landing?”  Well, it is going remote places with a vehicle.  Adventure riders, Unimogs, fully custom adventure trailers like this:

That’s cool and all, but truth be told I am over tents.  So there is a third option, one with a mattress.  True “over-landers” will likely poo poo them, but for my needs, it is the bees knees, the gnats ass, the cat’s meow.   What is it?  A Little Guy Tear Drop Trailer.

Look, they swim!

So we ordered one up.   Slide it right into a production spot for a spec model and the wait was not too long.  The Amish fellers at the factory got it knocked out quickly.  Yellow accents to match highlights on Jeep.  Ordered the wheels to match the Jeep.  Hard wire a brake controller to the Jeep.  Always something right?

Kind of a fun story on the way back from picking the Little Guy Tear Drop up.  Absolute deluge on the way home.  Generally no big deal, but well, the top is off.  Tarps, bungee cords and drive real fast.  I was wet to say the least.

Took the Little Guy Tear Drop out for a few “glamour shots” in its “natural environment.”  Pictures were only 6.5 miles from the house.  Will spend the week getting it ready / rigged and see what next weekend has in store.  Already have a few changes planned.  Need to move battery box so rear gate opens up better.  Paint fenders to match the Jeep.  Matching wheels got put off for a week due to delay at trailer place on brake controller install.  So, wheels to match jeep in a week, spare, and first camping adventure.

It seems to do well over rocks, creeks, etc.  Pintel hitch no doubt helps.
