The Overland Kitchen

With a fair few over landing expeditions under our belt now, you’d think by this point we would have the practicalities nailed.  Items that we have taken and not used.  Things we took and were a pain in the ass.  Things that have been a God send.  We think we have finally found what works when overloading

The Overlander's Guide to Shipping your Vehicle

Having shipped our expedition vehicles around the world we have learnt a lot of lessons on a very steep curve.  Shipping your vehicle to another country will probably be the most frustrating logistical problem you will encounter on your overland trip, but with telling you the procedure, what worked for us, what didn’t, and some cost saving tips, we hope you’ll find the process will be a lot easier and less stressful.

Kermit's Ultimate Overland Build

Reliability, simplicity, security and storage is the aim for want we to achieve with Kermit's re-build.  We are investing a lot more into him this time round and we hope it pays dividends when we go back on the road.  Like anyone who embarks on a self-build and ships their vehicle to another continent, we hope he’ll drive the distance and have as little issues as possible. 

With this build we have avoided playing reliability roulette with getting products from eBay and instead opted for quality led companies who have guarantees and warranties on products for longer than we are expecting to be away.  This has to be a winning formula… right?
