    S3E36 - Instead of "What is Overlanding?" How About "Why Overlanding?" and "Is it right for you?"

    16:49

    So many videos out there (including some I've made) are simply a video version of a definition of what Overlanding is. When I search YouTube for the term "Overlanding," all I see are things like "Overlanding 101" and "What is Overlanding?"  So, on this week's episode, I wanted to talk more about why I think Overlanding may be right for you. If you've listened to me before, I've done an episode or two on Why Overlanding is Awesome, but since I've learned a decent amount in the last couple. years of doing this, I wanted to revisit "Why Overlanding Might Be Right For You." Hope you enjoy it and, especially if you're new, that it's helpful for you!
