Meet Overland Journal at Adventure Southside – Germany

After a hugely successful debut in 2016, Adventure Southside once again opens its gates from July 14-16, 2017, in Eigeltingen, slightly to the west of Lake Constance. With a comprehensive programme of lectures, workshops and events for the whole family, the organizers invite overlanders, off-roaders and survival fans to join them on the Swiss-German border….

Beyond the Truck (Motorcycle): Camping on a Glacier

Where the city ends, Juneau Icefield in Southeast Alaska begins—and keeps going. Undeniably, its centerpiece is Mendenhall Glacier, one of the world’s most accessible. And the one we planned to make a self-guided trip and camp overnight upon in springtime. Just 12 miles from downtown and then a 4.5-mile moderate hike—steep and slippery in part—through…

First Annual Outfound Series

Outfound Series is all about truly inspirational speakers talking about everything from business, adventure sports, and moving full time into a van.  The thread throughout was outdoor adventure and the…

72 Hours of Adventure in Tierra del Fuego

An incoherent musing of one’s day-to-day life written by those who seem to have overlooked the stories that readers might actually want to hear. So, it came as…

Solo en Baja

Revolutionary Ride: In Search of the Real Iran

Iran teems with contradictions. Persian rugs are sold in bazaars next to knock-off American perfumes, chador covered women window shop for miniskirts, and the oppressiveness of the Islamic Republic is countered by the irrepressible optimism of its citizens. A country that’s been isolated by its own policies and years of Western sanctions (only recently lifted),…
