      How about a minimalist Military Surplus Adventure,. Like Poncho liner, tarp, a kabar etc. keep it lightweight and bush-crafty. Also the areas between Grayson highlands, Whitetop mountain going all the way to Damascus is some of my favorite hiking in he entire country!

    Hi Luke & Susie,
    Here is my New Name Suggestion = "Stealth Beast" (Camper). The all black look is very cool and Luke's comments about those windows conviced me about including the word stealth. It even reminded me a bit of those Stealth Bombers used by our US Air Force since they are painted with an all flat black color scheme. Originally watched this on my TV with a new Roku devise instead of my usual iPad and it really makes a huge (pun intended) difference when viewing the scenery you capture in your videos. Really made it seem like I was along for the trip! Thanks again for sharing this video.

    Love the rock warrior and Leer cap combo! The cloth liner in the cap cuts down on condensation. I got some AMARS USB powered globe string lights in warm white on amazon for $13- that are bright but easy on the eyes, 33 foot long string, so you can loop them inside and still have leftover to drape outside, and run a long time on a battery bank. Tres amigos off road club has a good video on how he set up his leer cap on his Tacoma. Some good info there. Good choice of vehicle Luke ! Looking forward to the journey!

    You could add some Chinese 18650 thermoplastic COB flashlights as camp lights inside. You could bring extra batteries or flashlights and then recharge them when you get home. The put out a lot of light. www.ebay.com/itm/T6-LED-Flashlight-COB-Torch-USB-Charging-Lamp-Lantern-18650-6-Modes-Light-M3/142999021287?hash=item214b67e6e7:g:P8oAAOSwpp9avIj2

    Someone else already suggested a canopy.. Whether a pole frame with ropes and stakes or a stand alone patio canopy needs testing. I suggest something with mosquito netting to keep flies, black flies, and mosquitoes out of the truck. Transitioning the fly to the cap may require some duct tape or a short blue tarp and binder clips. You definitely need some way to cook meals during an all day rain and to sit in lawn chairs to eat. You can get netting for an awning of a cabin tent. I used several blue tarps for cold or windy wet weather held on by binder clips. Overlap them 2-3 ft, for a door.. An LP stand alone gas stove makes cooking easier, provides some early morning heat and also provides a source for a buddy heater. It can be used for a griddle for pancakes, French toast, etc. as well as accessory grills. For cooking on the tailgate, I recommend a sheet of heat resistant Masonite which you can set a hot pan on and is easy to clean. It also protects your tailgate. Plywood can be washed down if painted but isn't heat resistant. You can bring several large ceramic or fired clay floor tiles to set hot pans on. A backsplash of heavy plastic keeps bacon grease off your gear and can be thrown away. A indoor/outdoor carpet under the canopy keeps your sleeping area cleaner. A stool makes getting in and out of the cap easier. Put a light inside the canopy.

    Does "Thirsty" (my name vote, I also drive a tundra) have a duel battery set up? We use the green home Depot brand 18v fans for portable use. We hang ours over head in the rtt and get a solid 6+ hours on low.

    For trips like that look into some sort of roof rack system. Then add an awning to it. Essentially it's a tarp attached to the truck. Also lots of different RTT options out there to have some more space in the truck. If you want some more info on DIY roof rack set ups let me know there are some really good ones out there using some aluminum t-slot extrusions.

    Camping in the rain is always good as long as you can stay dry.

    This evening I tried to fill up a weedeater but there was extra pressure in the gas can so I got fuel all over my pants. And my guess for the sandwich is Ham and Cheese. It's basic and it's the sandwich I've most commonly eaten and seen.

    Regarding the camera - the main thing I noticed was the bitrate seemed way lower. There was quite a lot of pixelation in some of the leaf canopy shots, enough to notice it before you mentioned the new camera. I have G9 and agree the Panasonic autofocus is not that great!

    I have the Crewmax version of the Rock Warrior and the entire back window rolls down so you can have a pass thru into the cap. They make foam seals to go between the cap and the cab! You could also make a tarp/ tent setup that would allow you to keep the tailgate open and zip up the back for a cooking space a yard or so past the tailgate!

    Great video, glad to see yall get into overlanding. My wife and I started doing it about a year ago, I bought a high rise camper shell for the dodge and we did a nice build in the back. We had alot of trials and found what was best for us,we even have ac in the back! Have fun!
