The Gear and Racks


Land Rover "Alaska"
 Specifications:

 Reasons:
Heavy Duty Roof Rack: Built by Ron Ogomori of Fabricor in Burbank, CA, these
racks feature shovel and light mounts and hold about 400 pounds although we won't put half of that weight up there. The galvanized finish matches the rest of the Land Rover trip and will last a long time.
 
NATO Ammunition Boxes More spare parts. Click here to see our spares list.
 
Weatherproof Bags: Doug's wife, Annette Pape scored us a great deal on these
gear bags from REI. Each of us has one and we're not allowed to bring anything more than will fit in the bag. These round waterproof bags are lightweight, durable, and they even have shoulder straps so you can wear them like a backpack.
 

 

 

Land Rover "Hercules"
 
Heavy Duty Roof Rack: Built by Ron Ogomori of Fabricor in Burbank, CA, these
racks feature shovel and light mounts and hold about 400 pounds although we won't put half of that weight up there. The galvanized finish matches the rest of the Land Rover trip and will last a long time.
 
Spare Parts "Medical" Box: Disguised with red cross symbols, this 3'X3'X8" lockable box contains the majority of our spare parts. Click here to see our
spares list.

 

The Sausage:

That's the nickname we've given to an all weather snowboard bag that sits on top of Hercules and holds a bunch of parts we have yet to fasten to the Dormobiles. Time prior to departure ran out so we put some low priority stuff to bolt on in "the sausage" for installation on the trail. It gives us something to do while we're driving.
