The Next Level of Overlanding? The Dartz Prombron Black Shark

It was built to overcome a host of problems none of us normal people will ever face, but it is interesting all the same. The latest over-the-top creation from Latvian automaker, Dartz, the Prombron Black Shark is, for lack of a better description, a battle-ready limousine. Built around a Mercedes AMG GL platform, the Black Shark is available with two choices of engines, although it seems unlikely any would-be buyer would even think of forgoing the biturbo V12 for the puny… read more »

Field Tested: Altrider Hemisphere Saddlebags

It was not particularly scary but it was starting to get interesting. It was day five of our tour of the Ecuadorean Andes and the sun had long abandoned our ride. We rounded a turn, cut through a tiny mountain village, and Justin blurted out over the radio, “Well, we did want the expert rider experience.” No sooner had he said it, the fog thickened and the rain increased. None of this would have concerned me had we not had… read more »

Story Telling with Video Courses Now Open

Half the thrill of having an adventure is telling people about it afterwards, right?   The trouble is, you probably have as many miles of GoPro or camcorder footage as distance covered. How do you turn that mass of disjointed shots into the kind of movie Discovery Channel would air? Or at least one that has your friends begging for more.   Simple, you let someone with thirty-five years in broadcast television and adventure travel help you.   Andrew St.Pierre… read more »

Build of the Month: Scout II Pop-up Camper

What happens when you mate an International Scout II with a Four Wheel Campers Blazer? The surprisingly spacious dual-berth cabin features a 3-way fridge, two-burner stove, sink with 10-gallon fresh water supply, and a 12,000 BTU furnace. At the heart of the Scout II, a 304 V8 engine provides the power to turn a set of BF Goodrich 33x10.5 all terrains. Though this Scout camper was sold some time ago, the build is still an inspiration to those of us into compact… read more »

Retrospective: Range Rover, the Early Years

Who could have known it would become such an epochal vehicle. A legend even at the time of inception, it would go on to dominate the category it created, defining a standard that others would aspire to imitate, often in vain. Like all heroes, it would have its flaws, detractors, and usurpers to the thrown, but for the better part of 45 years, the Range Rover has held its own.   Like all triumphs of design, the wellspring of the… read more »

Destinations: Harquahala Mountain

Ending at the highest summit in Southwest Arizona, the Harquahala Mountain is as steep, rugged, and beautiful as the desert comes. Its finer historical points start back in the 1920's when Charles G. Abbott spearheaded an effort for contraction of a weather observatory. Looking for a dry climate allowing for sun observation and measurement, the Harquahalas were an obvious choice for the new station. In 1920 the Smithsonian Observatory was constructed atop the peak and a small team began the… read more »
