NICK JAYNESDIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

Raised in Portland, Oregon, outdoor adventure —  hiking, camping, backpacking, and mountain biking — has always played a big role in Nick’s life. In 2010, 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 hobby ever since.

Nick currently has two overlanding vehicles, a 1992 Land Cruiser FJ80 in his garage and a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon in his driveway. 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.
