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. The 2019 Easter Jeep Safari was no exception, and Mark Allen (Chief Designer, Jeep) pulled out all of the stops with a fleet of Gladiators. Of particular interest…

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. After all, we live amongst some of the most amazing…

Video of the Week: Chasing Wild

Four hundred kilometers is a long trip by any measure, but when you’re traveling it by bicycle and pack-raft through some of Canada’s most remote terrain, it takes on an entirely new meaning. In this video, three friends do exactly that. You’ll have the privilege of following along as they journey through the northwestern sections…

Video of the Week: Free Solo

The word adventure is thrown around a lot these days. From trendy products to cute Pinterest pages, people are taking advantage of its ability to capture our innate desire to explore, but they’re also diluting it. Like synergy in the business world, adventure has become a buzz word that is slowly losing its meaning—and that’s…

What is Hot Stamped Boron Steel?

When AEV and Chevrolet released their ZR2 Bison (which you can read about here), there were some very excited comments made about their new hot-stamped boron steel components. We basically got the gist that they were supposed to be stronger and lighter than traditional steel, but the rest of the details were a bit fuzzy….

Video of the Week: Ural’s Insane Product Testing

When most people see a motorcycle and sidecar rolling down the street, they think it’s a bit of a toy. Sure it might look adventurous, but it must be some vintage bike intended for running around town and driving in parades right? Well, not if it’s a Ural. These monsters possess the grit and durability…

What We Can Learn From The Jeep Fire Video

On September 16, an overland YouTube channel called Coyote Works published a video titled Jeep Wrangler Catches Fire & Burns—Overland Car Camping Trip Ends in Disaster. As you can imagine, it generated a bit of a stir. The video begins innocently enough with the owner, Casey Kaiser, on a jaunt through the Oregon desert while…

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….
