“So, there I was minding my own business getting all too little work done and browsing Opposite Lock and Overland & Expedition sub-blogs when I got an email from a friend.”
“As slow as possible, as fast as necessary.” That’s what we say when we’re on a long-haul off-road expedition, living out of roof tents and retractable kitchens. Unless you’re Tonka, then you’re like “Yo dog, I heard you like lift kits...”
As much as I like to think of myself as an overlander I’m not, not really. Most of my adventures are day trips or at most weekend trips and i’m hardly ever traveling from one place to the next or over great distance as much as I would like to. Being married with a young family has tempered my dreams from Ushuaia to…

In 2008, a Belgian couple traversed the Congo in a Toyota Land Cruiser, a drive few have attempted in decades. This is their story of adventure, corruption, and crumbling infrastructure in the world's second poorest country. — Ed.
With 46-inch tires and a diesel engine shared with construction equipment, the EcoRoamer looks and sounds terrifying. Its size belies its sophistication — it also uses a NASA-designed water-purifying system and broadcasts WiFi a mile-wide. Let's take a look inside.
Was it the Muppets connection that grabbed an overwhelming 80/20 victory for the Studebaker Starlight Coupe over the 1929 Model A in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll? We may never know, because the past is behind us now. And, speaking of the past, how about a pair of cars from waaaaaay back for today's challenge?…
Today was a close day. Lots of contenders vying for the temporary throne, but alas there can only be one. First runner up goes to the very
handsome witty and difficult to type PETEJäYHAWK™ for his his double entendre interpretation of some PCH quotes:
