Thank You, Chris Cordes

A Special Thanks to Chris Cordes for his time as Editor of Expedition Portal. We wish him all the success in his new role with the OnX Mapping Team.

I still remember the first day that Chris Cordes started working at Overland Journal, interning from the management program at Embry Riddle University. We knew he was different, mature beyond his years with a strength of ethics and character. His internship was a success, and after a short time back in Texas, he came to work with us full time. Throughout his tenure with us (over eight years), Chris has worked in nearly all areas of the business, including running our mapping projects, operations, and finally, as a world-class editor and photographer. His ethics and character never wavered.

Now, Chris is off to new adventures with OnX, an equally world-class organization that produces one of the most effective and revolutionary overlanding mapping applications. We wish Chris all the success in this new venture, and we are grateful beyond words for his time with us; both Overland Journal and Expedition Portal has become better for it. We have no doubt that Chris will continue to do great things in the community, and you can continue to follow his adventures on Instagram @4x4_touring

Best of luck, Chris!
