Around this time every year the team sits down and begins to plan for the next twelve months. We discuss what sort of stories to publish, what type of gear to review, and most importantly how we can make you, our readers, happier. The trouble is, we’re not the best psychics, so instead of trying to guess how we can make Expedition Portal a better place, we’re hoping that you can tell us yourselves! Don’t worry, we don’t need you to write an essay, just finish a quick 16 question survey about the stuff you love. We even made it multiple choice, so the entire thing can be completed without putting down your coffee. How’s that for efficiency?

The survey can be found here, and it is completely anonymous so feel free to tell us what you really think! If you still have more to say after you’re done, tell us in the comments. We’ll be watching for any additional feedback you might have.


As always thank you for your continued support of our site. It has been one heck of a year, and we look forward to making Expedition Portal even better in 2017!

About the Author: Chris Cordes

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, for college in 2009. While working on his business degree in the Embry-Riddle undergraduate program, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. He fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, which led him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. Chris was immediately hooked by the concept of overlanding, which combines the excitement and adventure of flying with his affection for cars and trucks. After receiving his degree, Chris did a summer internship with Overland International before accepting a full-time position on our team.
