Video of the Week: JDM 4×4 Vans Hit The Snow

We may not have gotten many of the 4×4 Japanese vans in the ’80s and ’90s, but now that they’re arriving on American shores, we’re definitely making up for the lost time. Small enthusiast events are popping up around the country, photos of Delicas and Hiaces are flooding Instagram, and dedicated trail runs are becoming…

Common Ground :: Video of the Week

Wheel x Biker While overland travel does not require exploring on the dirt, we often enjoy the challenge and remoteness that the path less traveled can afford. Access to public lands is an important cause for all multi-use outdoor enthusiasts to support, and Fat Tire produced this thoughtful piece about the collaboration between the mountain…

The Jeep Gladiator :: Wayout

Each year, the design team from Jeep reveals a series of concept vehicles that either spark the consumer’s imagination for current models, or tease possible future offerings.

Living Legend: Lois Pryce

Smitten with life, UK adventuress Lois Pryce has always been on the move. At 13 years of age, an unchaperoned, week-long trip on bicycles through Cornwall’s back roads with friends introduced her to the possibilities of travel by design. And also to the idea of minimalist travel, taking shelter where you can find it, and bringing little more than bare essentials.

Video of the Week: Crossing Africa In An Alfa

Africa, a continent of beauty, danger, mystery, and wide open spaces. A place so many of us dream of, but very few would be willing to cross even with a brand new four-wheel drive. Yet one young European recently made a 22,000-mile, 9-month journey from the tip of Africa up through the continent and across…

Video of the Week: Dirt Sunrise

Overlanders always preach that travel is for everyone. That you don’t need to be rich, famous, or a world-class photographer just to hit the road—but it doesn’t always feel that way. That’s why we love people like Tim and Kelsey, two regular and wonderful people who decided that they weren’t willing to wait on their…

Video of the Week: Bruder Jumps their EXP-4 and 200 Series

Most of us know that trailers don’t handle as well as vehicles off-road. Sure, advanced suspension systems with coil springs, airbags, and A-arms have improved their performance by leaps and bounds over the years, but they still tend to bounce and jar going down the trail. Apparently, Bruder didn’t get that memo though, because they…

Video of the Week: Tac Aero’s Alaska Expedition

As overlanders, we’re into nature, epic landscapes, and exploring the remote regions of our world, but there are some places we just can’t go. The roads and trails we love are also our biggest limitations, so if you want to really see the wild side of a place, you have to go truly overland. We’re…

Video of the Week: Untamed Winds

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…

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….

Video of the Week: Coffee, Wrenches, and a Porsche 356

What could possibly be better than cruising to your local coffee shop in a classic Porsche? Well, if you ask Nico Samaras, cruising down dusty dirt roads first, and making sure that it’s a 356 you restored yourself. That’s because Nico is a lover of journeys and not destinations, of classic and simple things instead…

Video of the Week: Go Fast Dirt Camp

Here’s the thing: we love grand adventures through remote parts of Africa, surreal landscapes of the Antarctic, and inspiring tales from the mountains of South America, but every now and then we just want to see some cool trucks camping right here in North America.
