  2. Wanderlost just announced the Midwest Toyota Rally for May in Tigerton, WI – might be a good addition to the list. Note that it is limited to Toyota vehicles and full size trucks (tundra) are excluded by the park.

  6. Hi Joe and Kait! It was good to meet up with Joe at the expo this past weekend (missed you Kait). Kathy and I took your advice and spoke with Toby about the Scheel-Mann seats and they will be on order today. Hopefully I will have them soon and installed in our Aktiv 2.0 before our Washington DC trip. We will be attending the Indy 500 this year. Thanks again and hope to meet up with you again soon.
    Safe travels, Carl

  11. You guys are fantastic. My wife and I have been glued to our computer investigating vehicles and camping life; we love your videos, so informative but fun to watch. But in all your videos not once have I ever seen a package of Oreo cookies or Chips Ahoy. Don’t you ever once want to sink your teeth into a big fat juicy burger or hot dog? Keep up the great work–we love ya.
