Video of the Week: Desk to Glory’s $8,000 Pickup

By now, I’d say it’s a safe bet that we’re all familiar with Richard and Ashley of Desk to Glory. This duo has been keeping us entertained with amazing photography and hilarious blog posts since they first left on their South America trip from Vancouver a few years back, but their story doesn’t end there. Since returning, they’ve started producing some pretty cool videos, including this walk around their 1990 Toyota pickup Little Red. The clip keeps things short and simple, but there’s still plenty of Richard’s wit to make you laugh, and a little preview of things to come for the couple. Maybe even another grand adventure? At a minimum, the video will give you a look at one seriously cool truck, and remind us that you don’t need a $60,000 vehicle to go overlanding.

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, in 2009. While working on his business degree, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. It was there that he fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, eventually leading him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. After several years of honing his skills in writing, photography, and off-road driving, Chris now works for the company full time as Expedition Portal's Managing Editor.
