Overlanding is a very personal journey so where you begin and where you go is entirely up to you! However, a good rule of thumb (as with anything new) is to start small. Go on a weekend trip with friends or family and get your feet wet as you find what drives your passion to adventure and explore. From there, you build as you go. Just like XOVERLAND, we started small with our local, shorter trips, and basic gear, progressing from there as we built up experience. If you need tips or ideas, check out our early episodes in the North American Series—these episodes illustrate the very beginnings of our adventures. Have fun out there!
