Overland Expo West 2016: The Mobile Abodes

Overlanding in its many forms is in a constant state of flux. A few years ago the all-terrain trailer was at its peak popularity. This year's Overland Expo proved that the live-aboard platform is gaining momentum with an increasing number of manufactures and travelers choosing to package their home and wheels into one mobile abode. Although the Unimog, Unicat and Earthroamer are lust worthy things, they are massive in size, get single-digit fuel efficiency and fetch eye watering prices. The… read more »

Overland Expo West 2016 Day 2: Two Wheeled Adventure

Every spring, like a swarm of bees, they descend on an open meadow outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. They are the adventure riders of Overland Expo. With tags and stickers designating states from coast to coast and far beyond, they have come from thousands of miles away, their riding suits often sullied and, as I know from my own riding experience, probably a little ripe smelling. As they have done every year since the first Overland Expo, they showed up in… read more »

The Land Cruiser Heritage Museum

Tucked away in an unassuming Salt Lake City, Utah warehouse is an extensive collection of Toyota Land Cruisers - The Land Cruiser Heritage museum. This project is Greg Miller's labor of love, and the result is truly impressive. I was lucky enough to get a private tour of the facility from Kurt Williams of Cruiser Outfitters (cruiseroutfitters.com) and took a few pictures to share with the ExPo crowd. The collection covers everything from the first Land Cruisers that looked more… read more »

For Love or Money

I bet we have all cringed while reading some vehicle classified ads. Beneath a lengthy catalog of modifications and improvements, a number is listed in bold font, “More than $$$ invested.” Then there is the asking price, a desperate and futile attempt to recoup the funds sunk into the project. For many overlanders the build-out of a vehicle is every bit as enjoyable as putting it to use for its intended purpose. Many people spend endless at-home hours researching modifications… read more »
