Exploring backroads and finding yourself in a Porsche 356

There are some things in this world that shouldn’t make sense to us, but yet somehow feel right. Quitting our jobs for financial instability and life out of a car, wandering to remote and sometimes dangerous places in search of culture and nature, and of course pushing the limits of human endurance in places like the Himalayas or the Sahara desert. For Matt Hummel, it is taking his 1956 Porsche 356 wherever his heart desires. For many people taking a collector car that can fetch up to $300,000 or more on a dirt road over rocks and snow would be insanity, but for him it just feels right. If you are nearly as interested as we are, take a look at the photos of this magnificent duo below and then fall in love with the video at the bottom. It’s one of the first uploads to hit the Praemio channel, but we’re already big fans.






Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, for college in 2009. While working on his business degree in the Embry-Riddle undergraduate program, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. He fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, which led him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. Chris was immediately hooked by the concept of overlanding, which combines the excitement and adventure of flying with his affection for cars and trucks. After receiving his degree, Chris did a summer internship with Overland International before accepting a full-time position on our team.
