Extreme sports meets the Sunday drive
Everyone knows America has a love affair with the automobile. And with the advent of capable 4x4 trucks and SUVs the Sunday drive has evolved into an overland adventure. Overland adventures are part road trip, part expedition and all adventure.
When asked about the appeal of overland adventures Paul Thompson, the lead driver of the Last Great Road Trip, said, “These expeditions challenge you on all sorts of levels including project management, driving skills, navigation, and problem solving. In addition you have an opportunity to experience diverse driving terrains, wild life and cultures that make our lives much richer. If you grew up reading National Geographic or enjoy the Discovery Channel, you are going to love overland adventures.”
While destinations and the amount of money spent on equipment, guides and services vary, one thing is certain, more and more web sites and Blogs are appearing on the Internet telling the tail of these new Lewis and Clark adventurers. Each one telling a different story about how they found their way off the beaten path.
