Our newest hobby is expedition Jeeping, also known as Overlanding. Our rig is a
2011 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited with an AT Overland Chaser tent trailer.
The trailer has been rebuilt as a sleeping compartment called the Toad Pod™. The built report is on TVenturing.
Fuzzy is also a moderator for The Jeep Mafia. His Twitter id is @TeamToad.
We have several albums in our
Travel pages, including trips to
Florida for the launches of
Atlantis STS-122 and
Endeavour STS-123 and
Burning Man 2004.
These days we put most of our travel photos on Fuzzy's Facebook Page.
Fuzzy is an avid photographer, and takes picture of everything he sees. You can find his work on his Flickr page and on his FaceBook albums.
Team Toad is our family's fleet of combat robots.
We competed in BattleBots from 2000 to 2002 (Seasons 2-5).
We competed in NERC events and RCG events between 2001 and 2003.
After a haitus from robot combat, we got back into competing at
RoboGames 2006 and RoboGames 2008,
2006 RFL Nationals and our latest events
Combots 2009 and Robogames 2011.
We're proud to welcome our newest honorary member of Team Toad,
SGT Andy Vinh.
Get Metal Munching Maniacs, the DVD. This DVD shows the last tournament held at the Robot Club & Grill on May, 2003.
From the Fall of 2002 through the Spring of 2003 we owned and operated the
Robot Club & Grille, the world's only permanent robot fighting facility
open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The club is closed and gone, but the
fight record and
online store live on.
