Adventure at Your Fingertips

As the editor of Overland Journal I regularly receive comments and emails from folks that insist we should move to monthly publication. It seems the adventure travelers can’t get enough of the Journal; which our staff considers the best of complements. Though we’ll be staying with five issues per year (we too need to get out on the trail), there is another way to receive exceptional content in the interim.


A year ago we started using a platform offered by Flipboard to create a series of overland and expedition related magazines. For those of you who are not familiar with Flipboard, let me explain. Have you ever wanted to flip pages on your computer, pad, or phone and have instant access to your favorite activities and interests without the obstructive ads and non-relevant links? This is where Flipboard excels. It curates the best articles on the web and brings them to you in a beautiful and engaging medium every time you log in.




It also sources articles from Expedition Portal, such as the fascinating interview I had with Living Legend John Blashford-Snell. The visual presentation is excellent, and you can “gift” your selections to friends—perfect for the upcoming holiday season—and there are no ads. Brilliant!


Though I may be an old dog when it comes to embracing the latest and greatest tech, I recently started using Flipboard—and it is awesome. After creating an account I simply selected my favorite categories from the dozens available, and click “done.” Voila, I now have a custom magazine tailored to my personal interests.


THE BIG NEWS is that Overland Journal, the world’s leading vehicle-dependent adventure publication, has been selected from hundreds of magazines to represent Flipboard for Travelers’ Top 25 list. Take your passion to the next level; set up a Flipboard account at https://flipboard.com/@overlandjournal and head to www.overlandjournal.com to source the best vehicle-based adventure magazine in print. Here’s a closer look at what you’ll find in the Journal, and the type of content you could see on Flipboard.

Chris spent his formative years riding dirt bikes with his dad in the deserts of Southern California and Baja, Mexico, which led to a lifelong quest for adventure. He is handy behind a viewfinder and at the keyboard, and brings four decades of international travel experience to Overland Journal as Editor-in-Chief. His career, which includes work for National Geographic Adventure, Four Wheeler, Hot Rod, and Autoweek, has taken him through 50-plus countries and to every continent. He has also served as correspondent to magazines in a dozen countries and in as many languages. In 2013 he was part of the Expeditions7 team that crossed Antarctica and he has recently been inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame as a pioneering journalist. When not behind the camera Chris can be found on The Office (his sailboat), or undertaking meticulous “research” for upcoming articles in locales such as Tequila, Mexico.
