It’s been several weeks since we’ve done a podcast. Our last adventure was at Glade Top Trailwhere we had gotten quite a bit of social media reaction from the photo of Robert with the tire off the Jeep.

It has been a whirlwind over the past few weeks. We’ve been concentrating on our business and client work and haven’t really had much time to do fun stuff. We’ve also been preparing for Overland Expo East held in Hendersonville, NC November 9-11, 2018. We plan on a six-week overlanding adventure and eventually land in Hendersonville for the Expo.

In preparation for the trip, Robert did do a few modifications with Jeep:

  • Rotate and balance tires
  • Replace drive shaft boot
  • Replace track bar bushing

We hope you enjoy this episode as we record from our first stop on our trip. This time, we really didn’t make up a formal route or itinerary. Instead, we know there are two or three destinations we’d like to see, but other than that…we are just going to take things slow.

Free Camping at Possum Creek

Our first campsite was at Lake Wappapello, north of Poplar Bluff, MO. We went some nice back roads to arrive at Possum Creek. It was a free campsite that we discovered on freecampsites.net. It was at a boat launch where you could set up camp in the parking area. There was a vault toilet, two to three fire rings, and no hook-ups.

Our Verizon internet was fantastic (2 bars LTE) and was able to get a bit of work done. Robert had great signal to hamvangelist it up on 80 meters.

Be sure to listen to upcoming podcasts to follow our journey over the next few weeks as we make our way to Overland Expo East 2018.
