Video of the Week: Overlander

Few people have done as much to put overlanding on the map as the guys and gals of Expedition Overland. Their friendly attitudes and passion for adventure have captured our imaginations from the beginning, and their videos have inspired many people to strike out in search of their own journeys, wherever they may lead. Of course, much has changed since that first video in the hills of Montana. The once simple fleet of Toyotas has been replaced with a full lineup of purpose-built expedition rigs, their production quality has improved exponentially, and their routes have extended from the lower 48 to trails spanning several continents. It seemed like their wanderlust would only continue to grow, but as most overlanders will tell you, travel can change many things, especially perspective. As their team’s experience and list of countries visited grew, so too did their appreciation for the beauty of their homeland. After completing their last jaunt through North, Central, and finally South America, they decided to return to their roots by filming in the locations that started it all, right here in the United States.

We look forward to following along as this new chapter of Expedition Overland unfolds, and hope that many of you find in it the same inspiration that we have.

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 Senior Editor while living full-time on the road.
