A Search for Petroglyphs in the Gobi Desert

“Okay, the big question is how to approach this point. From the north? The south?” Coen was zooming in on his iPhone, enlarging the area mentioned in the Lonely Planet guidebook. It’s the first guidebook we’ve ever had that includes a list of GPS Waypoints for certain sites. For overlanders, who typically travel without a…

Adventures with Abby to Hogsback

It was two days after Christmas with the temperature in Johannesburg sitting at a boiling 37 degrees. Abby (my American pit bull terrier) and I were desperately looking for some activity or adventure to keep us occupied during the holidays, and I knew that staying in Johannesburg was not going to be an option. We…

Video of the Week: Dirt Sunrise

Overlanders always preach that travel is for everyone. That you don’t need to be rich, famous, or a world-class photographer just to hit the road—but it doesn’t always feel that way. That’s why we love people like Tim and Kelsey, two regular and wonderful people who decided that they weren’t willing to wait on their…

Overland Routes | New Mexico and the Continental Divide

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in Overland Journal, Fall 2017. When most people envision New Mexico, they picture the outlines of rocky plateaus, desert sunsets, and Native American culture. It’s understandable, as you can certainly find these things in abundance throughout the state, but there is also something more: the Continental Divide. Drivers…

It’s All About The People

“It’s all about the people” is repeated time and time again—in the living room, at the dinner table, and through the growing pains of life. It was a saying that my father would repeat to us boys without possibly even being aware that he was engraving it into our young and permeable minds, a saying…

Chasing the light

Do you ever stare at an advertisement and think, “I wonder what adventure led to that photo?” On the surface, it’s a girl standing atop a mountain, but how did she reach the summit, and what else did she see along the way? I used to stare at images and contemplate these questions all the…

Sonora Rally Introduces Adventure Raid

Held deep in the expansive deserts of Sonora, Mexico, the Yokohama Sonora Rally is a five-day off-road navigation rally and a true Dakar-style adventure. Created by Dakar veterans Darren Skilton and Scott Whitney in 2014, the venue has brought rally raid, a mainstream attraction in Europe and Africa, to the forefront of the North American…

Five Reasons to Visit Brazil

Brazil has much to offer and those who have followed our adventures know we spent more than two years driving to the country’s remotest corners, getting to know the very best of it all: The Amazon Rainforest, the largest tropical wetlands of the Pantanal, endless beaches, fabulous food, and the kindest of people (among many…

Behind The Ice Roads

In our Winter 2018 issue, we ran a story about the new year-round road to Tuktoyaktuk, which replaced what was arguably the most famous ice road in the world. We mentioned how the new road provided a lifeline to the small community of Tuktoyaktuk, in an era of changing climate conditions and uncertain ice conditions….

The Copper State Overland Rally

The clouds of my breath rolled and churned as I trekked alongside the edge of the water. The morning air was crisp, and a layer of frost clung to the ground, shimmering in the pale light as dawn broke over the distant cliffs. I knelt by the edge of the lake, watching the fog dance…

Overland Routes | Pacific Crest: Washington

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in Overland Journal, Summer 2017. Adventure doesn’t always look like what you would expect. It is not bound to the toughest trails or limited to foreign lands with unfamiliar cultures. Some journeys are about rediscovering the places we already know and seeing them in a new light. This…

Happy Holidays!

As we round the final bend into 2019, we wanted to take a moment to wish you and your families a joyous holiday season. Wherever you are, whatever you’re celebrating, and whoever you’re celebrating it with, we hope you’re making memories as warm and inviting as a campfire on a cold day. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy…

Video of the Week: Go Fast Dirt Camp

Here’s the thing: we love grand adventures through remote parts of Africa, surreal landscapes of the Antarctic, and inspiring tales from the mountains of South America, but every now and then we just want to see some cool trucks camping right here in North America. After all, we live amongst some of the most amazing…
