Video of the Week: Overlanding the Altar Desert

If you are not already subscribed to the Expedition Portal YouTube channel, drop what you are doing and make it so (if you don’t want to miss our newest content, that is). In addition to hands-on vehicle tests and the Overland Journal podcast, there are beautifully-edited overlanding videos like the one below: Overlanding the Altar Desert in Sonora, Mexico.

This week’s video features footage from a 2019 crossing of the Altar with specially-prepared vehicles from AEV including a new JL Unlimited and 2-door, a custom Outpost Camper, and a Chevrolet Bison. Footage captured by Brian McVickers and Scott Brady. Editing by Paula Burr.
