It seems that no one was impressed with my tales of two wheeled fishing travel. Honestly I didn't imagine it would sound like a whole lot of fun to the uninitiated. It is as they say, an acquired taste.

Campers, vans, trucks, freezers, we're pulling out all the stops here; if I were to really get serious about current fishing vehicle and sleeping accommodations I would offer this.................

First you need this;

Then when you are done for the day, you need this;

But I still like to pack it up on my bike and stay close to my roots, something gets lost in all the comfort. Unless it rains for three days strait. I like the cabin when it rains.

Musky, tell me more about this fridge. I would assume they took allot of amp.
We do have a small GAS one in the trailer, but for seven days is it one chest with drinks, one with dry ice and meat, and then a cloth chest with dry goods like breads and boxed goods.

You are the one with the naughty mind Jean Paul, well ok so I have one also.
Actually I was thinking that is how I would have it set up, along with a bathroom, but space might be at a premium so having a bathroom on the lower and upper floors may not be feasable....so now I'm back to thinking the whole upper floor would be a bedroom.

check this page out for all the details, I am sporting the 45 model from ARB. It is exactly like the engle but has the temp read out.

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/engel/

once you get one you become spoiled! they really fix so many of the issues related to back country travel...like looking for fresh ice for a cooler

If you have specific questions give those guys at expedition exchange a call they are masters of back country travel and will help you with anything you need.

But beware...that site is really addictive!
