Video of the Week: The Swift Campout

We love four-wheel drives here at Expedition Portal, but occasionally we prefer something a little different. Be it the lapping of waves on a paddle board, the silence of a hike on a misty morning, or the grit of rock beneath our hands while climbing, it’s nice to explore nature in a more personal way….

Video of the Week: Yellowstone River

A friend of mine once said that overlanding is driving to remote destinations to cook good food, and to an extent, he’s right. Many of us share a passion for cooking as well as camping, and although I’m far from a gourmet chef, I do enjoy a good meal cooked on the fire. Flame-broiled hot dogs…

Video of the Week: Where it Starts

Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. The expected path before us crumbles, and we’re left adrift wondering where to turn next. It is in these moments where the course of our lives are truly determined. It’s here where we choose to shy away toward the easy road or shed our fears in order to…

Video of the Week: The New VW California

Van life is booming, and the poster child for this craze remains the VW Vanagon and Bus. The Westfalia packages in particular have ascended to unreal levels of popularity thanks to their pop-top roofs and camper interiors, but the purchase and ownership processes are laden with issues. For starters, these vehicles are all several decades…

Video of the Week: Gall Boys

We’ve taken trailers into some questionable locations before, but the Gall boys redefine crazy in this video. Sure, it’s an Australian caravan built for off-road use, but watching them drag this thing through these remote tracks is still an absolute blast. From deep sand pits to river crossings, follow along as they explore the far…

Video of the Week: Living with Khaya

If you’ve been following the camper biz lately, you may have heard some buzz about Alucab’s Khaya. It’s basically an off-road, inspired alternative to a four-wheel camper that is designed to be used for overland travel. Unfortunately for those of us interested in purchasing one, there just haven’t been enough reviews and feedback around to…

Video of the Week: Breathe

The world revolves around work. We’ve become a society that identifies an individual’s worth based on the job they perform, the money they make, and the title they hold. Business days have consistently grown longer, emails and phone calls now keep us occupied long after we’ve left the office, and the new societal expectation is…

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…

Land Rover Celebrates 70 Years With Defender Outline

On April 30, Land Rover will be celebrating a huge milestone in their company history: its 70th anniversary. While most manufacturers would choose to throw a big party or rip around a racetrack, this British icon has opted to commemorate the occasion a little differently. They decided to drop world-renowned artist Simon Beck off at…

Video of the Week: Undisturbed Norway

Do you ever stare at a landscape and think, “I could watch this all day.”  We certainly have, but sadly, on most occasions, there just isn’t enough time to stand around and watch the clouds float by. There are places to be, things to do, and schedules to keep, which is why this week’s video…

Video of the Week: Roads Less Traveled

You might find this hard to believe, but most of us here at Expedition Portal and Overland Journal live and breath four-wheel drives. On any given weekend, you’ll find us out exploring the trails and backroads surrounding our hometowns, and taking every chance we get to go camping—but we do, in fact, have other interests….

Video of the Week: Overland Norway

When you think of exploring the misty hills and lush valleys of Norway, I’d be willing to wager that a Land Rover Defender comes to mind. It certainly did for me, but this group of friends did things a little differently. They chose to make the trip in two Jeep XJs, equipped with diesel motors…

Video of the Week: Colossal 2017

Last week we posted an article following the adventures of a few friends through Canada’s stunning backcountry. (You can read it here.) The trucks, trails, and photography reeled us in, and the landscape can only be described as epic, but it left us wanting to see more. Well, it looks like our wish was granted, as…

Video of the Week: Two If Overland

We’ve been following Two If Overland on Instagram for some time, and these two have given us serious overland envy. Not only are they constantly traveling to new and exciting places, and pursuing their hobbies of biking, hiking, and paddle boarding when they get there, but they also have one of the coolest expedition trucks…
