On this episode Dan interviews Kyle Fogle, the CEO from Treaty Oak Offroad (or TOO as you might sometimes see it), based in Texas. Treaty Oak Overland specializes in recovery equipment and its all manufactured in the United States. It all started with some recovery points for the Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus GX470. Since then, the recovery gear has expanded to soft shackles, bridles, static recovery straps, kinetic recovery ropes, tree savers and more!
While Treaty Oak Offroad is a new company, at the time of this recording, Kyle is driving innovation and supporting American based manufacturing.

In the garage:
Dan is still in Australia so none of the projects at home are making any progress unfortunately.
Spent some time chatting with @ryanmcjon on Instagram and he helped me out by correcting me on a video that I posted. In the video I said that the truck was a 76 Series Toyota Land Cruiser, but it was in fact a 79 Series Land Cruiser. The 79 Series is a quad cab with a utility tray bed. The 76 Series is a wagon or Troopy version. He also filled me in on answering some questions about off-road and camping life in Australia. He actually drives a Toyota HiLux in the New South Wales area of Australia.
Also from Instagram, @thetrailfypsies says, “We listen to you guys frequently as we travel the country. We have been on the road for a year now, from Alaska to Baja, and now starting the second year. We relate to your podcasts and enjoy listening.” They were just finishing the Blue Ridge Parkway and were moving on to the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. They said that its been a beautiful 469 mile drive through small towns and made for a great camping and overanding trip.
