I have been into overlanding much longer than I've known the correct word for it. It just turns out that the man who setup the earliest trips I made (S-10 Roundups, hosted by Keith Holman, aka 4x4x4doors), and who inadvertently taught me much about the sport of offroading, was into overlanding. On all of the trips, most of our miles/hours were on dirt, with short jaunts on pavement or into town for parts. My wife is far more comfortable on her own ATV than she is in the passenger seat of a 4x4, but she loves camping and the rig we've built, so she tolerates the more white-knuckle aspects of traveling offroad with me.
