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.

Places To Go Overlanding

“Where should I go overlanding?” As you might expect, this is always a difficult question to answer. I don’t often know what vehicle the person drives, how comfortable they are with being uncomfortable, whether they know how to drive responsibly in the backcountry, and how much experience (or lack of) they have. That said, there’s a ton of adventure to be had for all skill levels, so jump in and get moving!

How to Upgrade Your Overland Beer Game

Of course, drinking and driving don’t mix (not even a little bit), but drinking after driving can be one of the best parts of overlanding. Here are a few tips and some fun recipes to take your après overlanding beer scene to the next level.

What to Bring Overlanding

We as overlanders often push the limits with what we bring with us on trips. Do we really need the full hot-water shower setup, the slide out kitchen – complete with a propane-powered oven, or the drip coffee maker? My answer is, “probably not”, but if it makes your trip more enjoyable, and doesn’t weigh down your vehicle too much, then more power to you!

What is Adventure Riding?

Whether you have your sights set on a long weekend or a transcontinental journey, adventure motorcycling is one of the best ways to explore the backcountry and see the world. With a few skills and a handful of essential gear, you can be out exploring on two wheels and having the adventure of a lifetime.

How to Find Overland Trails

There’s nothing like getting completely off the grid, away from the worries of the big city, and far away from a buzzing cell phone and social media notifications. Overland travel gives you the means to slow down and relax while enjoying your favorite outdoor sports and activities away from the crowds.

Overlanding without a Winch: Tips & Gear to Get You Unstuck

Winches are great tools for overland travel, but do you need a winch for overlanding? If you are missing a winch, you shouldn’t let that stop you from hitting the trail. With the right accessories and training, an overland adventure can be successful without installing a winch.

What Are the Best Ways to Carry Fuel on an Overland Journey?

Few things are as rewarding as overlanding, getting deep into the backcountry, and discovering new landscapes for days and weeks on end. Unfortunately, getting way out there means carrying enough fuel to get from point A to point B (and back) safely. Knowing how much fuel to bring with you and how to store it is something every overlander — regardless of experience — needs to consider.

What Is Overlanding?

Overlanding has taken on a variety of different meanings in recent years, but it’s so much more than a cliche buzzword. Overlanding is self-sufficient vehicle travel where the journey is the goal and, just FYI, you already have what it takes to get started.

If The Pressure Is Getting To You, Air Down

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.
