How did you get into overlanding?
I owned an RV but wanted to simplify it and be able to still go off-road and camp. Also, I love to go exploring new places and overlanding makes that very possible.

What is the single item that made the biggest difference for you when overlanding?
Adding a larger Odyssey group 31 battery and 12 volt charging system to the rear of the 4Runner

Why do you overland?
Goes hand in hand with the previous question. I live to explore and travel to new places and the simplicity of overlanding allows that. Also, some of the best people I have met are people out on the trail doing the same thing as me.
