Overlanding to me is going out to those remote locations that haven’t been overly explored by others. It is getting to see the world that many have not seen and relying on an off-road vehicle and minimal camping equipment. It is getting to where you look up at the sky at night and can’t see any part that is not covered in stars. Seeing animals wondering around in their natural habitat. Making memories with your family and adding members to your family as you travel along your journey.
Overlanding to me is going where no regular auto can go in the middle of somewhere breath taking. You can live out of your 4x4 vehicle and or rooftop tent or in a overlanding trailer whether it be for a weekend or even years. You bring minimal gear and items because overlanding is all about utilizing your vehicles space, so you can enjoy nature without being crowded or weighed down.

Overlanding to me is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, it is accomplished with off-road capable transport where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time. Other characteristics that define overlanding include, but are not limited to, self-reliance, adventure, survival, and discovery. What is most important, is to be inspired, get out there learn, grow and have fun.
Overlanding to me is having the ability to go off the beaten path and seeing places that the average person doesn’t get to see. It is dependent on your vehicle and its capabilities. Overlanding can be both on-road and off-road. It’s about being adventurous and self-reliant. Overlanding is about the journey and the destination. It’s about fun and finding your peace of mind.
Overlanding to me is a more primitive, self-sufficient style of camping. Traveling over land to get to a remote location, where the journey is as important as the destination. Connecting with nature in a way that a majority of people are unable to. Getting off grid, a more rugged form of reconnection with nature, yet with many of the creature comforts you want from a camping experience. Exploring this beautiful country in all of its glory.
Overlanding to me is the ability to camp in remote areas and be completely self-sufficient. It is helpful to have gear that can serve multi purposes and be packed and sored in small spaces, as your rig must hold everything from power sources, water, recovery gear and cooking supplies. It allows you to see and explore places in a way that’s not feasible when traditional camping. It is for nature lovers and allows for a freedom of moving from place to place without having to worry about overcrowding and reservations.
