What is Overlanding?

Overlanding is about exploration and adventure travel. While the roads and trails we travel might be rough or technically challenging, they are the means to an end, not the goal itself. The pursuit is to see and learn about our world, whether on a weekend trip 100 miles from home or a 10,000-mile expedition across another continent. The vehicle and equipment can be simple or extravagant – they, too, are simply means to an end. History, wildlife, culture, scenery, self-sufficiency – these are the rewards of overlanding.

    I noticed that y’all have done away with the drop down tab for bicycling related topics. I thought it was very useful. Not enough eyeballs?

    Hi, I have made several attempts to finish my subscribe to Overland Journal, you did respond and thought we had it figured out. I get as far as requesting the confirmation e-mail but never receive the confirmation e-mail. I have double checked that the e-mail is correct…..

    I noticed that both links on the most recent article “Overland Routes – Anza-Borrego State Park” are broken. The Hema link appears to just be partially-hyperlinked and the california state park map link is giving a permissions error.

    Feel free to delete this! I just didn’t immediately notice an email address that seemed appropriate
