Back to touring already? Nice. I can imagine the relief after that ABS light is gone.

bed version . its very comfy just not enough ventilation if eather too hot. on lakes it was too hot even with top sunroof open. sleep by sea was much better as more colder air at night but then in morning becomes hot again . would be cool if doors at least rear one could be open just little and locked too.


views i had on sea and lakes




ride is better now but still humming sound in rear and i think on my side. its changing humm with road so its wierd it would sound like rear bearing but i changed it to used one not new but still what chance that used bearing was not so good not sure...
because of humming sound ride wouldnt be comfy for rear passengers i think so im not happy still and wann still try to find out whats humming in rear. changed wheels places - same , changed wheel bearing - same, changed rear axle - same.

cooking was simple easy and fast, every morning coffe and then some heating meal or cooking sausages etc. thought it wont be enough buts its enough for 2 persons to eat and have coffe. easy to clean too

Sweet. Ever thought of getting rid of your gas burner and making yourself a rocket stove?
I reckon your the kind of guy that would enjoy the process of making, then using one.

All you need are some tube steel offcuts and they're super efficient.

Looks like a nice and comfortable set up. The Lithuanian wilderness looks nice in summer too. What was the temperature like?

On lakes was very hot over 30 celcious. But all depends form how dry or not air is. On sea was about 30 too very hot . Lakes have lots flying stuff that bite you all over so thats anoying ,sea almost not have those .
Water on lakes now its pretty warm comare to other years before was about 25 celcious watet temp and about 16-18 sea temp. Thats pretty high too compare we had lower at end of summer in august and we have now all ready warmer baltic sea.

bought rear strut mount points but completely forgot that i need self leveling and i bought normal ones and they dont fit , they 2x shorter and they dont fit for self level spring , and i needed to drive car in couple hrs and long trip next day ,,so i cut old one in half and used that part from old on spring and put new one on top . with that i got same height of everything and maybe less stress on mount rubber peace.
for now did longer trip and nothing is wrong there all seams to hold and work ok


then went one more time to sea and this time 3 persons so one person was using large 4 person tent . and that was still with keeping everything inside car all bags .. all food , hi lift jack yes its inside too , small cooler , all car tools for almost any work to do on car i allways carry all that , 3 foldable chairs as well
i duno i could keep that hi lift jack on roof rack but i duno still why im not keeping it there... i have mounts for it and it seems like holding ok too , so why im still keeping that heavy and long jack inside i duno ... i just think that going high speeds maybe would put much preassure on those OEM car rails ...
