Landrover Defender x 110 -2022

Finally, we can head out for some much-needed R&R. This year we are still treading carefully after all the covid restrictions etc and have decided to stay in Nova Scotia and head for Cape Breton! Fortunately, our backyard is incredibly beautiful, and we don’t have to go too far for a great adventure!

We are travelling in a convoy of three vehicles comprising of:

1. Ram Dually 3500 – King Bundutop, added canopy and room and square back bunduawn with walls.

2. Ford F150 – Standard Bundutop, added canopy and half wing bunduawn.

3. Landrover Defender x 110 (2022) Standard Bundutop

All three vehicles are totally rigged out for off grid travelling and exploring., with fridges, travel ovens, hot water systems, solar panels, dual battery setups, kayaks and so much more.

We head out tomorrow for two weeks, to explore the hidden gems of Cape Breton.

Dropping off our two rotties early and head towards Cape Breton, meeting up with our great mates on the way up. First night stay not planned, in fact nothing is set in stone, let’s just see what hidden gems we will come across.

As we go along, we will be posting hopefully every two days or so if we have reception and hope you follow along and enjoy this adventure with us…


Thanks to Landrover Halifax for their excellent customer service and help getting me my Defender before our trip! The best customer service and what a fantastic rig! I just love it… contact them for your defender 🙂


Many thanks go out to Isaak Cape Breton Overlanding for helping us find some great spots in Cape Breton. He offers a self drive vehicle and will be offering tours too. He is extremely knowledgeable on Cape Breton so if you are heading up their way give him a shout!

Time for fall and winter camping!

Once again the leaves have changed color, the wind is blowing them off in a hurry… fall is well on its way now and winter is lurking once again. BUT if you are a camper, don’t despair, after all there is nothing better than camping in a Helsport Dome, Pasvick, Varanger or Finnmark tent, all of which can accommodate a wood stove. These lavuu tents will keep you all cozy and warm! Be it fall or winter these tents are so easy to set up, add a stove setup  and there is no need to feel cold or miserable camping in the winter.

The Gstove is fantastic for this application, allowing one to cook all your meals with ease. Now with the oven and additional pipe cooking space, there is no shortage of cooking space! Make a lasagna, apple pie or quiche, these are all doable on the Gstove, no need to be a culinary expert! Add a couple reindeer skins for insulation under your sleeping bag and you are all set for a wonderful fall/winter camping experience!

Far too few people balk at the idea of winter camping for fear of the cold but really if you have the right gear it is an incredible experience. Try it this winter you may soon become addicted to the beauty and ease of winter camping!

Scout Trailer Take 1…

The first weekend “real use” of the scout trailer and we have to say we are both impressed with this trailer! It tracks extremely well, so well in fact that fully loaded we had to keep looking back to see it was still there, we really did not feel this trailer at all, which makes for really easy driving and we had her loaded!

Locked and loaded 🙂 Ready to Roll!

 

 

We put a Snomaster 42s in one of the back sliders with a battery pack behind it for all the lights and the fridge. On the slider next to the fridge we made a custom box to sit on the slider so we could pack her to the hilt 🙂

Snomaster 42s

We also designed a little table top that sits on the wheel well for additional cooking space, which was tremendous!

Table top and Snomaster

We had a sundogx on the top of the scout and a 270 awning which both served their purpose more than adequately!IMG_0572

IMG_0563
If you are looking to buy a trailer take a serious look at the Scout, they are an incredibly well built aggressive trailers

Below are our setups, a scout trailer with a sundogx and 270 awning and a F150 with a big sky and a 270 awning, lots of mods to both setups. More on the mods as we prepare for our trip in September around Labrador and Newfoundland.
