National Park Vandals Strike Again

People are terrible. Not all of them obviously, but for the people who recently vandalize the iconic Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park, the word terrible doesn’t do them justice. Sometime within the last few weeks vandals drove onto the playa leaving behind miles of tire tracks in the delicate soil. Because this part of the park sees very little moisture, geologists lament that it could take years, probably decades, for the damage to be naturally reversed. For those of… read more »

Fall Boot and Shoe Roundup

Overlanders are outdoor people. As such, we tend to be rather particular about our footwear. At the recent summer Outdoor Retailer Show in Utah, I spent some time looking over the options best suited for our type of backcountry adventuring. As we’ve mentioned before in previous footwear reviews like the roundup we compiled in the 2013 Fall issue of Overland Journal, boot and shoe choice varies wildly from one traveler to the next. I tend to need something that not… read more »

Capetown to Cairo: An Airstream Caravan Takes On Africa

Although many have come to recognize the Airstream as an icon for the American nomad, few realize just how far these trailers have reached beyond our borders. Back in the 1950's the company's founder, Wally Byam, was on a mission to inspire fellow trailerites to see the world, and he began by planning a trip from Texas to Nicaragua along the Pan-American highway. Although it began as a small group of friends, an article by the Los Angeles Times had soon… read more »

Trail Tested: Kuat NV 2.0 with Rak Attach Swing-Out Mount

At the exact time I was wrapping up the testing phase, Küat released their updated version of their venerable NV rack called, not surprisingly, the NV 2.0. I finally got my paws on that new product and although I’ve only had a month to evaluate it, I have to admit I’m quite impressed. I first started using the original NV rack… read more »

Reminiscing at the Relic Run

Have you ever wanted to go away for a weekend and reminisce about the good old days of metal bodies, big block motors and leg warmers? If that is the case than the ExpeditionUtah Relic Run is the perfect event for you! The idea behind this historic run is to recreate the feeling of travelling back prior to 1989. While the age of the vehicle is the only real requirement it is not uncommon to see tents, eskys (coolers), clothing… read more »

Airstream’s New and Improved Basecamp Trailer

Even if you’re not into the travel trailer thing, you probably still have an appreciation for Airstream. Since the 1930s the unmistakable sleek and polished shape of the Airstream has evoked romantic images of life on the road. They’re also not cheap or everyone would probably own one. Although Airstream has offered a number of compact and price-minded trailers in the past, they hope to spark a new following with the re-release of their Basecamp trailer. At a shade over… read more »
