Overland Expo West 2016: Day 1

It’s been just over a year since “Snowverland Expo”, and to say this event is back and better than ever would be an understatement. The weather is warm and sunny, the crowds are bustling from booth to booth, and the smell of food and sounds of laughter are in the air. We walked around and shot just a few of the great vehicles in the vendor section today, and feel strongly that it might be the most impressive showing yet. From LS motor International Scouts to G-Wagen ambulances and Unimogs, there is something for everyone here. In all honesty it would take all weekend to list the great equipment on display, so instead just sit back, relax, and enjoy the photos. Check back tomorrow when we focus on cool gear, accessories, and of course more trucks!

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.
