How to Sharpen a Knife

No matter the knife that you choose to carry, it’s important to keep it sharp. Not only will it perform well when you need it most, but a sharp knife is significantly safer than a dull one.

How to Find Overland Trails

As a long-time explorer of National Forest fire roads, I’m old enough to remember when the only way to find a 4×4 trail was to check out a DeLorme Atlas and Gazetteer, call up a ranger station and ask for advice, get some beta from one of the locals while getting supplies, or simply finding a cool looking road and exploring. Somehow, I managed to find some pretty incredible and untouched places to get into the backcountry without the use of electronics.

How to Overland Without a Refrigerator

While most social media and print ads in the overland market have convinced you that you need a 12V fridge/freezer for successful vehicle-powered adventures, it is simply not the case.

How to Cook Over an Open Fire

Cooking over an open fire is not a new technique by any means. Our ancestors in the Paleolithic era threw hunks of meat onto open flame up to two million years before contemporary humans learned how to grill a perfect steak.

How Much Water Do You Need for Overlanding?

The single most important thing you need to consider on an overland trip is water. But knowing exactly how much water to bring on an overland journey isn’t always easy — especially if you’re new to overlanding. In this article, we examine exactly how much water to bring for overland journeys as well as tools to make toting large quantities of water on the trail easier.

How To: Basic Winching Techniques

Sometimes exploring the backcountry means that you’ll get stuck, requiring the use of a winch to extract yourself. Learn some basic winching techniques to help you get out of any situation.

How-to: Increase Traction Off-Road

Overlanders looking for a simple way to improve off-road ride quality and performance automatically look to expensive bypass shock absorbers, lift kits to fit bigger tires, aftermarket coils, and burly leaf springs. But the answer they seek might be as simple as airing down on the trail.

How-to: Solar Power Your Overland Journey

Getting out into the backcountry with your overland vehicle for a few days or a few weeks is the perfect way to recharge your internal batteries and give you a new outlook on life. But the question we often get is, “How do you recharge your physical batteries while you’re in the wilderness?”

This Trailer Is So Light, Almost Any Vehicle Can Pull It

If you’re considering an EV or a smaller car and want to pull a trailer for camping, working, or a day at the beach, you usually have very few options. Most trailers are far too heavy to be towed by small cars. That is until the Polydrops P19 [Shorty] hit the market.

Vehicle-assisted adventure has a different look than it did just a decade ago. Specifically, our reliance on wayfinding electronics, camp lighting, and satellite internet makes it much different than simply loading your rig with a tent, your headlamp, and a cooler of food and heading off into the backcountry for the weekend.
