MY OVERLANDSTORY

We all have stories to tell, even if we never intend to write a book, create a feature film, or take to the stage. My Overland Story is a celebration of your adventures and trips out into the world—be it a weekend trip around your local forest or a multi-year expedition spanning several countries.

BE PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

At Overland Expo, it is the community of vehicle- and motorcycle-based travelers that make each event so unique. The Community Spotlight is a collection of narratives promoting the voices of storytellers from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Using the form below, submit either a written or video story about an overland trip that you have completed for a chance to be featured on the Overland Expo website, social media, and more!

TELL US ABOUT A TIME…

  • When you went above and beyond in your overland adventures.
  • When an overland setback turned into a positive experience.
  • When locals impacted your trip in an unexpected way.
