I’m preparing for Offroad Consulting’s 201 class this Sunday (May 17). I was able to find some lashing straps to better secure the YETI Roadie 20 cooler. The YETI almost killed me when I was going over some rough terrain. I can imagine the “Jeep trail rider killed by YETI” headlines
The tie down slots in the YETI (that I had no idea were there) take up to a 1″ wide strap. So I bought two CamJam tie down straps that are designed for tying down Polyethylene kayaks to car roof racks. These things are strong as heck, and they have a rubber (?) piece under the tiny ratchet to keep the strap from moving around. Easy to use too.
Next I need to figure out what accessory I need to mount my GoPro HERO 7 inside the car.
I was able to find a GoPro swivel mount at the nearest BestBuy. So I can mount my GoPro to the inner windshield. Why not outside? Mud. I’m not worried about the rain/mud, since its waterproof, and I have a couple X~PWR-H5 cables, but I don’t want to have to jump outside to wipe the lens every time there’s splatter.
So I’ll need to find a rotating mount. I have a waterproof cable that’ll reach the USBA/C ports so I can plug the waterproof cable to work off power (not that I’ll need that level of protection inside the Jeep).
I’m hoping for another puddle, maybe Pit Sr. But if its deeper than 36″ I’ll pass. Since I didn’t get a chance to get a snorkel kit installed. That would raise the air intake to the top edge of the windshield if you leave the whole kit installed. If you remove the tall part of the kit, the base still moves the air intake to 6-8″ higher than stock. This is the one I plan to order but not this season.
I can’t wait for tomorrow, neither can my GoPro (she had to sit out the last ride). I’ll be ready. I hope.
