More details to come.
Overlanding is a term that describes offroad remote travel for a long period of time. Overlanding requires the vehicle to be set-up for living, with ability to drive and set up camp anywhere, to cook, clean, sleep and exist completely self-sufficiently off the grid for an extended period of time.
Overlanding differs from mainstream camping. While it is a great escape to take the family on a weekend camping trip and roast marshmallows over the campfire, this doesn’t qualify as overlanding even if you are remote camping. The real-deal means taking yourself off-grid and venturing into the truly unknown, sometimes giving up your job and your house and ordinary day-to-day life and travelling for weeks, months or indefinitely.
True overlanders will spend their life savings and more on setting up their vehicle for touring and will continually be upgrading their gear as they figure out what works and what doesn’t, and what their needs truly are when they are travelling and camping. They will network with other overlanding travellers and share stories, ask questions and check out their vehicle set-ups, and get their tips to help them on their own journeys.
