Also check out The Container Store in Mission Valley (163 & Friars).  They have a huge selection of stuff, not necessarily with the moniker of "Overlander" but certainly fits the need.  That's where we got a bunch of things to organize our trailer.

Harbor Freight has some knock-offs that might be that size.

Any of you have a line on a Pelican type case that measures about 16"x12"x6" I don't really need the ruggedness of Pelican so I was hoping someone has some ideas?

Jayrat is giving you really good advice. The Tom Harrison maps are very accurate and easy to read. The entire road is very straightforward. Do your research for areas off the trail you want to explore and your fuel/water consumption as it plays a factor in the end. The road is not technical by any means. Carry enough water and food for unexpected extended campouts. Prepare for some very strong extended winds matched with very cold temperatures. Pick your campsites in protected areas and be prepared to change them depending upon the prevailing winds. I have gone on three winter trips out there and have had a great time each and every one of them. In truth the winter is the best time to be out there for the sheer beauty of the desert.

Not really.  Paper maps, a basic 3.5" Garmin GPS, OEM Rockford Fosgate Navigation from Nissan and my smartphone.

If I remember correctly, the Gnome garden was removed, as well as the bus.  Are you using any sort of navigation software?

Buddy, let me start off with I'm happy the break was minor and that you do not require surgery. I have been pushing for years and years about the benefits of an extensive lifesaving kit. Not only having it but knowing when and how to use everything. Through my civilian life and military I have learned so much when it comes to these issues. For anything more advanced I' recommend you get the right training and sustain it. When the issue happens is not the time to be consulting  with the iphone idiot box or whatever other material you can use to try and figure out your situation.

 The good things that come out of these events is the people around see the injury and learn to work together under someone who has the training and skill to not only fix you but to get you out. Some of those folks sitting by the wayside will either sit back but others will get involved and learn. I have seen some really nasty things out in the field. The best took you have at your disposal is a calm mind to address the issues and the issues that come from the issue. I was taught a long time ago to plug the holes and keep them breathing. If you can just do those two things well the chances of getting to definitive care experientially  rise during the golden hour. Having and maintaining a good comprehensive medical kit shouldn't break the bank but knowing what and how to do with everything you will be leaps and bounds over others.

P.S. Joe, I'm glad you are ok.
