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

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.

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 »

Long Term Wrap Up: Salsa Fargo Ti

It was roughly a year ago when I plucked this little beauty from a collection of boxes and with anxious hands began assembling it piece by shiny piece. As it came together, passers by at the Overland International office would stop and say, "Wow, that's a cool bike. What is it?" It's easy to forgive the uninitiated for not immediately knowing what to make of a bicycle that looks largely like a mountain bike until you take note of the unusually flared drop bars.… read more »

Chile’s Charms: Running Hot & Blowing Cold

Upon registering my motorcycle’s mileage clock 10,000 miles since hitting the Americas five months previous, without conscious volition I stopped seeing our trip as an extended holiday.  This had now become a way of life for my partner and I.  The honeymoon period wasn’t altogether over, it was simply the start of a new chapter having learnt the basic ropes of two-wheeled travel.     Namely journeying into the unknown and coping with all its capricious twists and turns –… read more »
