Overlanding is a Cheap Vacation

I ran across an article on the Meet Plan Go! blog entitled Overlanding Can Be a Cost-Effective Way to Have an Extended Career Break Adventure and thought this would be a great read for Jeepers and potential Jeep (or other brands of 4x4) owners.


While not many of us Americans get extended vacations like most of the civilized world does, that shouldn't keep us from getting outdoors and exploring our backcountry.

I've always found that my 4x4-based camping trips to be the single most relaxing, rejuvenating, and refreshing vacations.  I enjoy lots of different outdoors activities when I'm off from work, but I never experience more or see more than when I'm on one of my overlanding trips.

Overlanding (or simply vehicle-based backcountry exploration) doesn't require lots of fancy equipment, and there's no "right" or "wrong" way to do it.  You make it whatever you want it to be.  You can gather a huge assortment of ideas, from bare-bones to ultra-high-dollar options, along with learning from the opinions and experiences of other overlanders and vendors at the annual Overland Expo.  This year's Overland Expo will be held outside of Flagstaff, Arizona from May 18-20, 2012 and should be the biggest event yet.

Here's a teaser for this year's Expo:

  2. Well said, Jennifer! Nothing makes me appreciate our country and get more in touch with nature than a nice long trip through the backcountry. I love hiking and cross-country skiing, but nothing exposes me to more nature than a 4x4 excursion through the mountains or across the desert.
