For Sale: Lexy the GX470

Imagine the place in nature or around the world you dream of experiencing with your family.

Head to Head: National Parks vs. National Forests

The first time I went to Yellowstone National Park was in 1979 when I was just a wee lad.

Featured Vehicle: 31MM Defender 90

The Land Rover Defender has always been an enchanting vehicle. Its adventurous heritage beckons us to wander, and even the most exorbitant prices and catastrophic break downs have not deterred enthusiasts from answering its call. But while a stock defender holds a certain respect for its rugged looks and capability, a tastefully modified one can make even the most die-hard Toyota fan long for the green oval. This sort of build is what 31MM specializes in, and their D-90 is one of our… read more »

Left Hand Drive (LHD) or Right Hand Drive (RHD)

66% of the world drives on the right hand side of the road therefore 66% of the world’s drivers drive LHD vehicles. It stands to reason then that if you have a choice between LHD and RHD for long term international overlanding, LHD is the way to go.
