First updates to the Chevy Colorado Z71 Trail Runner

I've only owned the Colorado for a few weeks, but already have done some updates and changes to it. After researching for so long I knew exactly what I wanted and needed to do to the truck to get how we wanted. 

I'll be doing short regular updates on the coming days of what's been done it it. The first two changes are documented in the video below.

These are two important updates to improve the ground clearance and protect the bed. Please subscribe and check back for videos of the other updates.

Reviving the blog and big update

After not posing anything for a couple of years I am reviving this blog and will be uploading more content and creating videos to accompany them. 

I really want to use this platform to be creative and document the trips we take and also the tools and gear we use. I enjoy watching this type of content on YouTube so want to make my own. The first big update is revealed in the video below and stay tuned for the other updates to follow.

CABELA'S XPG RGB II headlamp review

Here is a brief review I did on the CABELA'S XPG RGB II headlamp I recently purchased. Good lighting is always needed when traveling and exploring and headlamps are great to keep your hands free.

Exploring the American Frontier requires clothing and gear and one of the best places to get that stuff is at Cabela's. At the moment Outdoorhub are doing a $500 gift card competition so if you like the idea of that click the link below to enter. 

I've entered and hope I win :)

Mountain Man Breakfast in a Dutch Oven

A few weekends ago I did some campfire cooking in my yard and made a very tasty breakfast in my cast iron Dutch Oven. Here is a video of the recipe and results.
Dutch Ovens are a great way to cook when camping or even at home in the yard and there are tons of great recipes and YouTube channels about Dutch Oven cooking.

Outside Online tests the Chevrolet Colorado 4WD Z71 Diesel Truck

Outside Online have reviewed the Chevy Colorado 4WD Z71 Diesel truck and claimed it's the only truck you'll need to own. With it's low level torque and high fuel economy it can cope with most jobs given to full size trucks. But with it's smaller size it's better round town and it certainly is stylish.

This is the truck I'd want to own, but at a cost of about $42K for the Z71 diesel I don't think I'll be driving one off the lot any time soon. Maybe in 5-10 years I can get a used model, but until then I'll have my sights set on a Nissan Frontier.
