How did you discover overlanding?
I’ve been trail camping for about 5 years. People call it overlanding now hahaha.

What is your favorite piece of overlanding gear you have?
I’d have to say my clutch upgrade to kelvar HD, one of the biggest upgrades on my truck followed by my 4.56 gears.

Why do you overland?
I’ve always giving myself a hard time all day with the truck so that at the end of the day I can open up the setup, sit down next to the lake, make a fire and crack a beer open while looking at my build and the lake

Comment as-tu découvert l’overlanding?
Ça fait 5 ans que je fait de la trail camping, et c’est rendu une mode qu’ont appelle le overland maintenant hahaha

C’est quoi ta pièce d’équipement favorite de ton build?
Je dirais ma clutch en kevlar HD, c’est un des plus gros upgrade sur mon truck suivi de mes gears 4.56.

Pourquoi fais-tu de l’overlanding?
J’ai toujours aimer me donner de la marde tout la journée avec le truck pour que à la fin de la journée je puisse ouvrir le setup, m’asseoir sur le bord de l’eau, faire un feu et ouvrir ma bière en regardant à la fois mon build et le lac!
