On The Road Less Traveled / Build Posts / O-k-l-a-h-o-m-a…ok!

Travel with our family

Join us as we explore the world in our carbon-neutral, 4x4 expedition vehicle called The EcoRoamer. We are happy to share our travel adventures, family memories and homeschooling experiences as we journey down the road less traveled.


Greetings from sunny Oklahoma! The trip is going well so far. Last night I spent my first true night ‘camping’ with the truck. I used the new outside countertop with the BBQ on it, and it worked like a charm!

Here it is: (in various stages of progress)

STEP 1: Cut a big hole in the side of your truck (ouch!)

STEP 2: Build a frame out of 1 1/8″ aluminum

STEP 3: Cover it with a skin of Alucobond and a couple of latches

STEP 4: Apply one hot BBQ and one cold beer

I managed to get enough bandwidth to upload all the photos I had promised. They’re all posted in the PHOTOS section at www.EcoRoamer.com (sorry it’s easier than trying to copy them across here with my limited connection/time, at the moment.)

Today I’m on my way to New Mexico to pick up our first EcoRoamer Trailer for the Muskoka Foundation Fleet. If you haven’t seen the thread on the Adventure Trailers forum section, it’s an AT Horizon, that we are going to be loaning for FREE to people going on expeditions and are willing to volunteer a little time along the way for one of several good causes.

I’m really excited about it, and can’t wait to see the trailer in person. It will be at the Overland Expo, free reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis, though free bottles of beer may be considered for preferential treatment! 

See you guys in Arizona!
