Ben returns to Overland Expo as an expedition skills driving instructor bringing more than 14 years of experience as a Land Rover Experience Lead Driving Instructor.  

Ben fell in love with 4×4 driving more than 20 years ago with his first overland trip in 1993 in a Volkswagen Westfalia camper van driving from Georgia to California via Moab, UT.  What was a hobby for him then, has become a passion that drives his career as an off-road driving skills instructor today.  Ben owns Classic4x4 LLC out of Asheville, NC teaching private lessons and hosting guided trips for overlanders and off-road enthusiasts.  

Ben’s most recent overland expedition took him and his friends from Asheville to Baja Mexico in their D1, G4 edition D2 and Defender 130 Land Rovers.  You can meet him in the Vehicle Expedition Skills Area at Overland Expo Pacific Northwest and Mountain West.
