So I'm just clocking in, not that I've much to say or add to any of the topics I've seen running.
I'm busy re-configuring my Landy into a one person mobile camper in preperation for my December holy-day trip, where as I've said before, I want to go Dorp-kruip...
IE visit all the little towns that are not even on map... experience the flavor of the town, stap so bietjie rond and maby hang my hat there for a day or three
I might even go so far as to get a bicycle, but I don't want to have a trailer, as I POSSIBLY may stealth camp along the way.
My objective is to re-configure a <4x4> for up to 10 days completely off grid, and incorporate all thathiking gear I've been looking to replace over the last 30 or so years, that I posted about
Anyhow, back to my Landrover Discovery II one person camper...
I need to be able to re-configure it back to a truck, or even further back to a family car, so nothing can be installed perminenetly.
Given that you all know that I'm as tight as a camels butt in a sandstorm, together with my lack of resources like tools and such, as well as a not that great vaardigheid, I'm making good progress.
So if anyone want's a build review, ask me and I'll post.
Some of it has been completed / some is still work in progress but functional, there is still a lot to get done, so I'm plugging away for about a half day each weekend.
So far I've got a full length (1.8m) x 900mm wide bed, a full-on tailgate kitchen & tailgate utility table, My 50L 12v Waeco compressor freezer / grocery box / gas supply / 15L water bottle 9there is 65L on the roofrack) toilet / toilet & shower pop-up screen and my backpack, which is well on the way to being kitted.
I've also got a rip-stop canvas awning that lives over the back door of the Landy
Ok so enough of me here are a few pics....
Tailgate kitchen functional, needs finishing
Freezer fitment and accessability trials... Works well..
My bed. Everything is ontop of a platform so that I can store my solar panel under the platform. The platform started out as a phuton bed base that I had knocking around..(you know those low flat japanese beds that where alll the rege back in the 1980's?)
I built it in 3 sections so that it can all come out. took a lot of measuring and scheeming but it all worked out..
Ripstop canvas awning bought it at the de deur flea-market for R400 this was the first time I pitched it, it was one pole short... Quite a nce one, even if it's Campmaster........
