Now with over 1,000 days on the road, including a two day stop in jail (they didn't collect $200 for) they kindly carved out sometime as they visit with family in Costa Rica to share their experiences and hard earned knowledge as accomplished overland travelers.More than two and a half years later; they've been through through the USA, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica!

    #120 - Full Time Overland Travel! Those few times in our lives when our biggest dreams and goals come to fruition. All the planning, all the little hurdles along our paths of accomplishing mini goals along the way. For us it's been a blend of surreal, a little frantic, along with a trifecta of snow, wind and hot dry dusty days. Complimented with unbelievable scenery, desert flowers of shocking beauty, sunrises, sunsets, followed by clear night sky we've not enjoyed for years. We're more than delighted to share with you our new home on wheels after a roller coaster ride of small amounts of panic last December. After a little shy of 1,300 miles from Portland Oregon to Fort Lupton Colorado, we took delivery of our new pop-up truck camper, the Hallmark Victor! Hallmark is re-introducing this classic floor plan they first released in 1968. The primary distinction between the Victor and their other models is the dinette. The Victor features an East & West dinette, where all their other models are a North / South layout. The much larger table was the winner! We have two separate ways to position the table, with an added bonus of putting the table, in what we refer to as “Night Mode”. This is removing the table top and placing it against the sink side of the camper, basically making it disappear. In Night Mode we have a plethora of floor space, making it much easier to enter and exit the bed, or just allow two people plenty of room without bumping butts.

    #119 - When the truck is aptly named “Manfred” (think Manny the Woolly Mammoth from the Ice Age movies) you know its size is going to be massive, complemented by a fun natured side. There's no disappointment when it comes to learning about this Dutch family of four, who've decided living a life outside and exploring with their two young children was the better option than running a business and chasing professional careers.In 2020 the full time exploration started, or at least that was the plan. Fleur and Mike had sold their home in the Netherlands, booked a flight to Canada, packed their bags and had Manfreds boat ride booked. Then; as we all know the world hit the brakes hard and fast in the spring of 2020, closing borders and changing travel plans for many adventure seekers. Searching for a Plan B, they loaded into their trusted Manfred and started exploring close to home in the Netherlands. As soon as boarders began to open back up they stretched Manfreds legs, overlanding further into Europe.In this episode we talk about all the important details of a family overlanding. What the kids think of traveling full time, along with the scoop on their beautifully rugged Manfred.

    #118 Funny thing; one of the advantages of consistently talking with other full-time overland travelers is learning from their experiences. Case in point, this week's guests Phil and Izzy of The Gap Decaders. Teaching us the value of being intentional, doing the planning and research.We found a lot of similarities with this week's guests and enjoyed jumping back to Overlanding in Europe. Phil and Izzy spent years in the normal rat-race of life, pursuing careers and financial stability. They've renovated properties in their spare time, while dreaming of a different way of life. In 2018, they said goodbye to their old lives, making their dreams of full time travel a reality. They sold their house and most of their stuff, quit their jobs and bought a motorhome to road trip Europe.Although they thought they knew they might need to return to ‘real life' after a couple of years, it was at 6 months in they realized that going back to their old lives was not what they wanted. In 2021, they swapped their motorhome for a proper overland truck so they could travel further off the paved roads and explore more.Phil is ex-military with bags of common sense and a real can-do attitude. He's happiest when being active and making new friends (he's Irish!).Izzy is a multi-tasker and works well under pressure. She loves reading, learning new things, chocolate and a glass of red.For more details on Phil and Izzy see their show notes page at www.GHTOVERLAND.com

Bérangère (French) and Jorge (Peruvian/Italian) are two really easy going humans that met in New Zealand in 2015 during their Working Holiday visa experience after having traveled in South East Asia for a few months on their own. Their life as soulmates started there, and all related adventures. First, doing a road trip in the South island of New Zealand, then backpacking between Peru and Bolivia for three months in 2016. Subsequently, they relocated to Vancouver (Canada) where they started a new life. Jorge had a dream of pursuing the Panamericana and to his delight Bérangère supported his dream as they started planning and preparing themselves for overlanding the Pan-American. After about a year of research while working two jobs to save enough money, they executed a plan that would send most people back to the safety of a comfortable couch.They sold their beloved “Torito” in Santiago de Chile after completing around 60,000 km of the Panam together, and continued their adventure backpacking! All in all, they finally reached their ultimate destination of Ushuaia in December of 2019 via a blend of their little mini van, by bus, hitchhiking, and a quick plane ride to Buenos Aires.

    Episode #116 / Logistics - Full time overland travel has all its amazing views and experiences after you've accomplished some kind of planning and preparation. In this case you're most likely far beyond the dreaming, the packing and all the preliminary stuff. At this point in your overlanding trip you've probably spent months on the road becoming a “seasoned overland traveler”. Or you may be like us doing your final planning for what's sure to be a Darién Gap sized logistical challenge that's a little unsettling to leave for last minute “figuring out”. How on earth are you going to find the right people, at the right time, and not be hosed on the expense of shipping your overland vehicle from Panama to Colombia? Do you know all the little tips and tricks to making sure your precious home on wheels arrives on the other side in the same condition you left it in? Do you need a full container, a shipping buddy, roll on roll off, a crate built for your bike, are all your valuables that are too big to carry with you properly secured…? The list goes on and the list includes things only the most experienced overland travelers think of. The first thing to keep in mind is you will eventually figure it out, so remain calm :) Although we don't plan to hire, or pay for many services or “fixers” this is one of the few services we will unquestionably be using. There's just too many details to know and shipping people to work with without a trusted middleman who has your best interest as his only interest. With a Five Star rating on Google, and with several of our past guests using his services, Alejandro of The Overland Embassy is the man to hire for your logistical and shipping needs from, or to Panama. In this episode we talk with Alejandro about The Overland Embassy, all the details on shipping and the services The Overland Embassy provides (which is a lot!). We also learn about he and Ana's overland trip from Panama to Alaska that includes great stories of adventure, and overcoming many challenges of getting bogged down, however always coming out the other side stronger and more resilient (much like you will).

    Guzzle H2O - Pump, Filter & Purify Your Drinking Water

    #115 - Our number one necessity as overland travelers is unquestionably water. We can only survive approximately three days without water, so for us it's at the top of the list. One of the challenges on water was the weight of carrying larger volumes, along with the space requirements. At 8.3 lbs per gallon, and the approximate need of roughly one gallon drinking water per person, per day; not considering the estimated 10.9 gallons per day the average person uses just from their household faucet, this gets out of hand quickly! Thankfully there's a plethora of options available. Therefore, being able to store and purify water had lots of potential solutions. Our hangup was the weight of carrying large amounts of water (20 gal. +), the required space, along with being able to pump water from numerous sources, while not pumping potentially harmful water into a container, relying purely on filtering it later. Something about contaminated water from every source we ever pull from being added into a container to continually grow who knows what, relying on filtering after the fact, was bothersome (to us).Full Show Notes at: https://ghtoverland.com/guzzle-h20

    Episode #112 Monkeys On The Road / A Family Overland AdventureImagine this: You're on the overlanding trip you've dreamt of for years. You're roughly two and half years into your epic overland adventure when you start to hear about corona-virus. The country you're in closes its borders, and sets stringent rules and a curfew. Now what! What do you do? How do you react? Do you book a flight home during the small available window of time, for $1,000 plus per seat, as everyone goes into panic mode? Or do you hunker down and make the best of where you're at?As life presents its unending challenges with required decision points; It's your turn to decide. You now need to decide what to do, and decide how to roll with the punches. It's all part of life, and it's surely all part of overland travel. This week's guest on the GHT Overland Podcast is author Mary Hollendoner. Mary wrote a book about their Pan American experience with her husband John and their daughter Lilly. Mary's style of writing draws you into their trip as if you're right there with them. Holding your breath as John is ripping hissing batteries from the van. Frustrated alongside her as she explains border crossing tribulations. Laughing as she describes preparing for border crossings, and in Lisa's case, crying within the first two chapters. We encourage you to order Monkeys On The Road as a must have book on adventure and a gem of a book to reference for your overland trip. As an extra awesome treat, Mary's husband John Stanfield wrote and produced a song inspired by their trip. Actually he wrote a few songs! At the end of this episode we are treated to a song by Mary's husband. A song inspired a couple years into their Pan American trip around Peru. It's magical to hear a song specifically inspired by overland travel on the Pan American route! *Closing song credits to: John Stanfield

    Episode #109 When asked "what advice would you give your five year younger selves" Courtney and Tyler nailed it with perspective and an appreciation for life that's always refreshing; "Enjoy your Life". As many of us do, we fall into the status quo, following the footsteps of our parents or those we look up to. Getting a "Good Job", marriage, a dog or two, then children; generation after generation. For some of us it takes years, sometimes decades before we come to the realization Courtney and Tyler have, early in their marriage and early in life. To Enjoy Life your way, go do all those things you spend hours thinking and dreaming about, but do it now.This week's episode is a perfect example of what can happen when you build on your strengths, remove the unnecessary clutter, along with all your other treasures that no longer serve you in pursuing your dreams. As Tyler points out; be smart with a budget and stick to it long term, it will payoff. This is so very true, and probably beyond what most people are willing to get truly serious about. A cruise through all our past guest will reveal a dirty reality; almost every guest has explored their chosen parts of the world in an older, dirty, not perfectly equipped vehicle. Additionally; when asked "what would you change about your current setup, not one guest has said they wanted to swap their vehicle out. Instead, they're out enjoying life with Tenacity and Love. This episode is a fantastic look into how Courtney and Tyler became Outdoors Bae, creating opportunities for themselves that laid the foundation to "Live a Good Story". Another great quote from this interview as we dive deep into how anyone can start planning and creating a nomadic lifestyle. From downsizing all their belongings, running their business on the road, and recently setting roots with a new land purchase in Arizona, it's a fun episode we think you will get a lot of value from.Be sure to follow Courtney & Tyler on Instagram at @outdoorsbae

    Claire and James of “This Big Road Trip” took the time to chat with us back in April of 2020. Clearly, much has taken place in twenty months...Yes, just short of 2 years ago! Just as COVID reared its ugly mug. Days and weeks prior to many of our worlds being turned inside out. This interview is PACKED with such valuable information! Information based on years of experience. Claire and James are originally from the UK, but moved to live in BC, Canada in 2006. Claire is a family physician, while James is an Endurance Athlete/Sport Coach with a focus on Ironman distance triathlon racing. They left Canada on January 1st of 2018 to start what they thought would be a three year round the world trip, driving from Canada to Patagonia, then shipping to South Africa and driving to Europe, through the Middle East, The Stans, Russia, China, Mongolia, SE Asia and Australia. As many original overlanding plans go, that original plan went out the window, now traveling overland for two years and four months at the time we talked to them in Colombia. We are beyond excited to finally release this power packed episode! So, SO good!Claire and James continue to work remotely while they travel. James works with about 20 athletes providing training schedules, feedback and analysis and race plans, while Claire practicing telemedicine via videoconferencing with patients in BC, Canada. Claire has also volunteered her time with some humanitarian work along the way, both in Nicaragua and most recently (at the time of our interview), on the Venezuelan Colombian border working with the Venezuelan refugees.Enjoy the interview, be sure to follow This Big Road Trip on social, letting James and Claire know what you enjoyed most about their episode. www.GHTOverland.com

    A sweet return overflowing with gratitude and emotion. Returning to a project we love doing is beyond any words we can find. An episode we've been looking forward to recording, an episode with raw emotion that we contemplated editing to remove some uncomfortable personal moments. Ultimately deciding that exposing who we are, the emotion behind successfully fighting through our battles in life, maybe, just maybe will inspire you, or at least provide you a tiny example that all of us can fight through our challenges in life to ultimately reach the doors of our dreams.The passion that drives the GHT Overland Podcast is sharing the stories and experiences of others. This episode is an uncomfortable exposure of our past challenges, while taking time to express gratitude to a few cherished people we've met along the way, who inspired us, while more importantly, kept our dreams from escaping into a dark lost world of “somedays”.For those being held down by the obligations of life, for those who have a dream of overlanding adventure, and for those who might be losing hope of getting to a point of escaping for just a simple weekend. We remember too clearly the days we couldn't escape for just one day to explore. Travel was so far from a possibility we hit a point that enough was enough. We started planning, more than dreaming, serious life changing planning. It took three years to sell our business that was the primary monster holding us back. We sold our home and as much unnecessary “stuff” as we could.Your dreams and obstacles will be different. If you're there and doing it now, hats off to you! Share your tips, your challenges and experiences for others to learn from. If you're looking for inspiration to keep your dreams alive, or to shore up final plans to live a life more intentional, filled with exploration beyond the city lights, we encourage you to keep moving forward! Never lose sight of your dreams! Find a few inspirational people to follow, keeping you actively dreaming and moving forward. Take a step, no matter how small, each day, focused on getting you to where you want to be. Never stop moving forward!A Warm Thank You to Everyone!Chris & Lisawww.GHTOverland.com Find all GHT Overland podcasts at: https://ghtoverland.com/podcastsFor Overlanding Gear visit https://ghtoverland.com/overlanding-gear-guideFind Links and all show notes at: https://www.patreon.com/ghtoverland/posts

Cory and Brie caught our attention as they left for their mega-moon overlanding trip about a year ago. We’d never heard of a “mega-moon”, and these newlyweds were doing it overlanding style! Apparently the mega-moon idea is fairly popular. The idea consisting of a multi-country or even multi-continent itinerary. On October 8th 2018 in Seattle WA Cory and Brie pointed Ullr (their Toyota Tacoma) South, and hit the gas pedal. We caught up with them (virtually speaking) in Chile to learn from their experiences over the last year, hear their stories from the road and talk all things overland travel. Check out their two episodes as they celebrate their 1 year anniversary on the road as newlyweds, overland travelers, skiers and adventure enthusiasts.

David Walls of Overland Power Solutions joins us this week for a special educational episode on powering your adventures. Safety was at the top of my mind as David and I talked all things electric for overlanders. We cover battery types; pros, cons, types, cost, longevity… Dive deep into DC to DC charging versus using a battery isolator, overland solar options, and of course safety. How do you wire it all up without fireish nightmares?To no surprise, there’s a lot that goes into designing and installing your electric system safely. As David points out several times, there's no shortage of available information on the subject. It’s about narrowing it down specifically for you and how you’re going to use the system so that it can perform optimally. Information paralysis is real, we appreciated the depth of knowledge David has along with his ability to break that knowledge down in a way most anyone can understand it.Checkout the episode for usable information you can put into practice immediately. We learned a lot, and hope you will also benefit from the education David provided. You can also reach out to David with the links provided below. Consider Overland Power Solutions if (like us) you’re not an expert in proper electrical system design and/or installation. As life has probably taught most of us by now, do it right the first time, or fix it pronto. Get the best quality parts possible the first time to save money down the road replacing broken or burnt (super bad) stuff.Website: https://www.overland-power.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/overlandpowersolutionsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/overlandpowersolutionsFind Links and all show notes at: https://www.patreon.com/ghtoverland/postsMusic by Shane Brown / www.shanebrownmusic.com
