Looks like a nice rig. 

I wish I had the kind of money it takes to spend it on something like that.  Coarse, if I did have that kind of money I am not so sure that is how I'd spend it.  But to each his own. 

People should enjoy life.  If it brings him happiness then I say go for it.

Please let us know when you get yours.  Be sure and post some pictures!  If you are into hanging out in an RV, Big Bend would be a great place to do it!

Of course this is just too tempting to avoid,i mean just look at this discussion: from a 12v MicroW to idling engine for recharging batteries to writting somebody in BiBe for defining some laws of the back country to a $100,000 G's of camping stuff...what were you posting initially,professor Bill?. :icon_lol:

 Anyhow,from the looks of that rig,that is no backtrails rig at all.Not with all those gizmoz bouncing around inside,you are going to have something going wrong eventually and kill your electronics if you want to venture out in to the boonies. Take it from me, i even broke a dualbander antena with a spring installed just by jolting the monster truck back and forth.

 I hope he enjoys his rig and post some pictures for us to enjoy.

 Sorry professor,but even the Moderator gave in and went 180? on your initial post...... :icon_lol:

I second the nomination. So much has been said about so very little.

Yeah...this thread has wandered far and wide from where it started! I was being facetious about using a 12V microwave for camping...just like I was being facetious about the portable bathroom set up for hiking the South Rim. How we got around to self sustaining "green" RVs is kinda interesting...many points of view here. That's what makes it interesting! :icon_biggrin:

Put a fork in it...this thread is done!

Well at least until the NPS makes up their mind on the generator issue, at which time I'll probably have to split the topic up...

With this microwave oven, you'll only need your laptop for power.

Go solar.
