It’s a new year, and most of us have big plans and even bigger dreams. We’re all about feeding those dreams here at Expedition Portal, so for this week’s video we’re heading to South America with a group of friends in their Defender 110. Follow along as they take in some of the continent’s most beautiful scenery, explore its wonderful cities, and get lost amidst its vast and seemingly endless landscapes. Surfing, waterfalls, train rides, flamingoes, and dust storms—you’ll find it all in this short and inspiring clip. We hope it encourages you to get out and see something new in 2019!
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.
