Welcome back to the Off the Road Again podcast! We’ve missed you. The focus is on the off-road adventure but we also dabble in all things SUV and truck, maybe even some rally cars.
Chris & Ross welcome Emme Hall & Rebecca Donaghe. Emme writes and makes videos for CNET’s Roadshow. She was on the Land Rover Defender launch in Namibia and owns a 1600 off-road buggy too. Rebecca is a producer by trade and has won the Rebelle Rally with Emme as the navigator. Her next trip is riding motos to travel in Mongolia. Rebecca’s warm-up for the Mongolia trip was a seven-day excursion across Morrocco on 50cc motos with the Adventurist Rally.
Ross is contemplating a motorcycle. Chris has his new Thule cargo carrier arrive with a 14 inch crack in the top. The guests are way more interesting this week.
This week’s photo/video notes:
Motos in Morrocco to prepare for 150s in Mongolia

Motos. Effing motos. Being terrified and uncomfortable is often why I decide to do or learn something. Not because I WANT to feel those things, not because I want to CONQUER them, but because I want the knowledge and practice of breathing through them and pushing past what stops me in my tracks. The fear doesn’t go away. I just learn to breathe through it, take away its control. Be a Buddha. Be a Buddha. Be a Buddha. On 2 wheels. Man alive, not an easy one. Now I’ve given myself no choice but to keep learning, training, bumbling, pushing, failing, breathing. Inspired by my grandparents who traveled by motorcycle, I’m ready to take the baton, dammit. To Mongolia. #trainlikeabuddha #breathelikeamofo #travellikeagypsy
