NICK JAYNESDIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

As a native Oregonian, hiking, camping, backpacking, and mountain biking have always played a big role in Nick’s life. In 2006, Nick’s passion for outdoor exploration and his love of 4×4 trucks were combined when he discovered overlanding. He’s been an advocate of the pastime ever since.

Nick currently has three overlanding vehicles, a 1992 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ80, 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser, and 2022 Toyota Tundra SR5. No matter which vehicle he’s traveling in, his trusty retriever, Arlo, is always riding shotgun, as the pair traverse the wilderness of the Western US.
