The journey started on June 1st, 2005. Quite an adventure it's been since then!
A few things have changed here and there since we started, but we believe the core spirit has remained the same. The main goal of Expedition Portal has always been, and and always will be, to create a place for overlanders, and adventurers to discuss their mutual passions. Whether it be telling the community how they’ve prepared their vehicle, or telling them how they’ve recently used it on a trip, ‘ExPo’ has been the place they’ve called home.
Tired of feeling like you have to have an nearly $200,000 camper to go hit the road and explore? Here's our solution: A 1974 Toyota RV - Simple, Reliable, Stout, most importantly - CHEAP. The seller on Craigslist is asking $700 or best offer, quite the deal for something with two beds, a sink and a refridgerator!
The iPhone has become an essential tool for the overland traveller due to the wide variety of it’s features and capabilities. The iPhone isn’t always known for durability and overland travel can be quite taxing. Dust, water, and drops can make quick work of the iPhone - or any phone for that matter.The Lifeproof case aims to make your iPhone indestructible. The box claims to make Apple’s popular smartphone dirt, water, snow and shock proof. I’ve been testing this case over the last couple weeks with these claims in mind.
Some people are not happy with the typical vacation. The adventure travel industry continues to grow at a steady pace, yet only certain Americans are beginning to take part. There are those who search out the most unique destinations to see, explore, and experience. A new vehicle concept is providing adventurers worldwide with the opportunity, but are Americans up for the challenge?
Tiger Adventure Vehicles has just released their newest, and largest vehicle to date, The Siberian Tiger; They're serious about their new model - even rebranding themselves from Tiger Motor Homes, to Tiger Adventure Vehicles. There's no doubt it's going to be a game changer for the entire upscale adventure vehicle industry. 'Competition spurs innovation' and with more and more players entering the field, we're sure that no one is going to get too comfortable in their seats for a while. Gee, it's like someone let a Siberian Tiger loose.
The Rally Fighter is the first open source vehicle ever successfully put into production by a group of creative commons designers from their online community. Over 90% of the parts come off the shelf, saving time and money on engineering, research and development. It features a Chevrolet LS3 engine, a Ford 9-inch rear axle, King coil-over suspension, and a body designed by Sangho Kim - winner of the Local Motors design competition. It's a seriously fierce machine, and it was more than capable of propelling me at over 80 mph through 'whoops,' jumps, and anything that could be thrown at it on my little joyride. So how do you produce such an awesome vehicle? Naturally in a facility that is just as awesome.
When we found our vehicle for La Aduana, we couldn't help but look around the website that it was hosted on, The Vagabond Adventures. In addition to some outstanding imagery, they've also compiled a fantastic video which we decided needed to be the VOTD!Don't forget to check them out! [link]
