Congratulations, you did it!! Sounds like quite the trip. I can not wait til I am making my maiden voyage. I hope to have her back in one piece by the end of the month. I have been plagued by a lot of logistical and weather issues that keep pushing me back. I am also doing 99% of this myself. It would be great to find someone near me to buck rivets (beer and steak on me, anyone?)
Thank you for being such an inspiration to me, it helps to keep me motivated. Again congratulations!

This week the Overlander made the headlines (well page 22 in the auto section). Whilst not 100% accurate it was nice see peoples reactions.

Cool article. Glad to see I'm not the only one still rolling with the ugly white BBQ bottles for propane.

Ugh, me too! I even have a set of 30# aluminum ones that Terry thoughtfully provided with the trailer, but I've been meaning to polish them up before getting the valves changed over, so I haven't installed them yet. Frank used to give me a hard time about them, now I think he has just given up...

Very cool write-up, truck. And it's really good to see you finally able to use your trailer.

Hey Truck.. I forgot to ask how the marine head worked for your trip? Do you find any issues with TP clogging it at all? I really like the idea... just whenever we go on a trip to Hawaii and take a diving cruise, they always ask us not to put TP in the toilets as "they're easy to clog." I don't think my girls would like the idea of that....

Can't wait to read about your next trailer rehab!

No problems with the head, but I suspect if one jammed reams of tp in there you could have an issue. Maybe the cruisers use macerators which may be more clog prone? I'll definitely use the same system type on project Sovereign 33'. Maybe two bathrooms "just kidding". I think I learnt quite a bit during the build and trip; I'm way more excited about the Sovereign now but there's still some treats in store for the Overlander.
