There is no real definition to what Overlanding is.


I think you've just answered your own question, where this is the basis of what Overlanding it, but it also differentiates that group by "Off-Roaders" and the bad reputation of people driving recklessly and destroying the environment. I've had an RTT for 9 years, and you could say I've been Overlanding before it was a thing, or even before I knew what it was, and I don't care what it is or isn't, and I don't put myself in any group. I just find groups of like interest to share my experiences and to also learn and get ideas from. You're thread is great and I'm sure inspired many people. That's all that counts, and all that should count.


I really need to start using Instagram more...
Thanks for your thoughts. I feel we would agree on things around a campfire which is always a good thing. The culture shift is apparent now when you find yourself amongst a large group of "overland" people....it is all about tires, lockers, lifts and all the over the top camping gear. Maybe I was missing this all along and have only just come to the epiphany, but 4 wheeling basically has a bad name out in the world due to land abuse. All those folks have migrated, and now "Overlanding" has the same negative connotations, at least with land owners in the Northeast. I'm not a user and abuser, so being associated with any of that doesn't work for me anymore. If I can't tread lightly, than I won't tread at all.

We're not that far apart. Maybe one day we'll cross paths. If you ever plan to come close to your northern border with Quebec/Canada, shoot me a message.
