I’m not an overlander... I’m a long distance camper. I have been exploring the back country trails since I was old enough to sit on the seat of my dad’s motorcycle. At 12 years old I was given a 1967 Ford F-100 that I dreamed one day would take me from coast to coast... at the age of 28 I made it to the east coast in the middle of a 15 year journey with several other countries and continents involved. The old 67 never made it onto the road however.
