Happy New Year Folks!

One overlooked area of trip planning sometimes is storing and transporting our trash on 2+ days expedition or trail type runs where the req is pack it in and pack it out.

Rubicon Trail goes by this. Dusy and Oregon Discovery Trail as well, and and with the current State budget, the state parks like Sinkyone Wilderness Park (Lost Coast) is also pack it in and pack it out. No trash bin in the park. Ranger will tell you that you can get fined for leaving trash.

Came across Dave from Trasharoo "Off Road Spare Tire Trash Bag": http://www.trasharoo.../TRASHAROO.html

For storing and transporting trash... including stinky wag bags. Instead of using standard household plastic trash bag on the back of your Land Rover which is bound to break or storing stink trash bags inside the vehicle, Dave has a great solution called Trasharoo Bags.

I reached out to Dave and asked for a group buy deal for our club; he gladly responded and is offering our club members and friends a group buy.

Instead of paying $49.99 @ Trasharoo site or other retailers: http://www.trasharoo...ROO /Order.html

We have a smoking deal:

20 orders = 39.99 $10.00 off

60 orders = 29.99 $20.00 off (this is a deal if we can get 60 or more NCLR members and friend to join the group by).

Note: plus add tax + ground shipping.

Trasharoo bags fit spare tire size 30"-35" and can hold up to 50 lbs.

Made from quality 900 denier vinyl canvas (can take a beating fromt the sun), and water resistant interior (means no leaky bags).

Can also be used to store wet suit, storing muddy recovery straps/gears, etc...

I like to place the orders by the first week of January (a nice after Christmas present for yourself (smile)). Company is located in S. Cal and we can have Dave ship us all the bags in one order to save on shipping.

Will keep in touch with Dave for future donation to our NCLR raffle. In the meantime, post up if interested and we can get a headcount.

Ron

Count me in for one Ron. It's much easier to get to than a 5 gal. bucket strapped to the rack. If the expected delivery date is after January 16, then I will have mine shipped to AL.

Ron,
Count me in for 2. I'm hoping I can tie them to the ladder on the rear of my LR3.

Alright, we have

Steven=1
Will=1
PCRover=1
Chris=1
Kevin=2
Mike=1
Jim=1

12 more to hit the magic number 20 to get the $10 off discount for $39.99 vs 49.99.

I don't think we will get 60 so 20 is the number; rainny season upon us, not only for storing trash but can be used to hold your muddy recovery straps....

2010 is looking good for NCLR

We have more trips lined up....
We will have NCLR Tread Light Trainers after March 20th....
And doing the right thing by using made specific off road trail trash bags...

Happy New Year; thanks guys!

I'll take one, Ron. Definitely need a "poop pouch" if my youngest joins me on any trails; otherwise, a great place to store my soiled underwear.

Ok, we have 9. Need 11 more (actually Dave reached out to me; he wants to help us meet the group buy #; he even lowered it to 15 vs 20 - what a good guy). Going to take this to our favorite forum LRRF and see if our local friends would be interested in joining the group buy.

Also there was a comment in the LRRF about how hard it was for that person to strap the Trasharoo X strap on the back of his DI w/tire bracket; here's the thread (comment was from Maxyedor): http://www.lrrforums...ead.php?t=14652

I reached out to Dave and he responded immediately (awesome)!

Just wanted the folks who ordered or thinking of ordering aware of this and understand if you want to remove your order; but I am committed to getting one and will work in the end.

Here's a recap of the thread/post:

The straps will fit around the tire, the problem is that you can't get your hands behind the tire and in the mount to snap them. Same size tire on a swing-away like Elliott's is no problem.


Got it Max. Now I know what you are taking about.

Good feedback and helps with expectation so folks are not surprised - I don't think it will kill the group buy - see below.

Dave and I chatted via email after reading this post, and he said tire brackets like on ours (LR DI and DII) similar to the FJ Cruiser and Jeep Wrangler some times you have to feed the strap through and grab it from the bottom. But it does work. It just takes some negotiating.

Here's a picture of Trasharoo X strap:
Posted Image

And of course if you have custom tire carriers like Elliot's, you're fine.

Dave also suggested that it can by adjusting one side of the strap all the way out (buckle), feeding it through and snapping the other side (where access is easier), and then pulling the strap to tighten it.

Or get your tiny tot or my 7 year old w/smaller hands to do it/and unstrap it (that's my suggestion not Dave (smile)).

Dave also mentioned to me that he has not had one returned due to not workable; he even has folks using the Trasharoo on the rear ladders.

Post if any other questions/concerns, and will get back asap.

Hope this helps!

Great; I will put you down for one; I am talking to Dave from Trasharoo re: tweaks on his product; see if there is an easier way to access the back strap for D1 owners; I think for D2 owners, there is enough space in the tire carrier to stick your hard and strap/unstrap the bag. If LR3 and others, you can mount it e.g. on the rear ladder if you have one.

Got it; thanks Enrique.

Will push the order a lil later till I hear back from Dave; will be worth the wait if we can get any improvements for D1 owners.

See you @ Shaver.

Ron, Thanks for putting this deal together. Put me down for two please.
