Overlanding, basically exploring the great outdoors in a capable off-road vehicle, is becoming more and more popular. Think of it as long distance hiking but while driving a vehicle, and camping.
Overland vehicles tend to be off-road capable, modified from stock for trail duty. Unlike some over the top rock crawlers, they are designed to reach a destination while enjoying the journey, and not just to go muddin’. Some are converted to full camping vehicles, some just have a tent in the trunk. They vary from stock Subarus to completely built Unimogs. There are rules so as long as the vehicles serve the purposes intended by their owners.
Overland Expo is where overlanding enthusiasts and vendors come together. On the weekend of October 7 – 9, 2016, Overland Expo East was held at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. While I couldn’t attend, one of my best friends did and he sent it a few pictures of the amazing rigs that were there. Thanks, Leo!
