The subject of this series:

How is overlanding in the USA doing today? Is it still growing as it once did. In the US, overlanding is a relatively new industry, and it seems as if it is following in the footsteps of the same industry in countries like Australia and South Africa. In this series of videos I find out by taking a US built overland truck across the country, from Seattle Washington, through the wilds of Oregon, and then onto the country’s largest overland trade expo, Overland Expo West in Arizona.

Part-1. Seattle WA

In this episode, we land in Seattle and spend a week preparing our trucks, and get out in the forests of Eastern Washington State before heading south.

Part-2. Washington State
In this episode, we head out of Washington State and into Oregon, attempting to follow a remote road through the Oregon Back Country Discovery Routes. Its part of the longest trail system in Oregon with over 1500 miles to explore and discover amazing country. But the snow still lies on the ground. Will we be able to complete our intended route?

In this episode, Andrew, Jeramey and Kate explore Oregon rivers and the coastline, and conclude that the Lexus GX470 might be the USA’s replacement of the Land Cruiser 80 series. After all, the Lexus, under its skin, is really a Land Cruiser.
