On this session of the Overland Roundtable, Dan shares an interview that he did with the group known as Via PanAm.  The group is running from Alaska to the southern tip of Argentina on foot!  590 marathons!  The audio quality isn't as good as usual and the format for the show is different.  But at any rate, its a great story involving overland travels that is worth the listen.  

Cheers and see you next time, at the Overland Roundtable!

In this session our guest panelists include Laud Maroney from Texas Overland and Chris from Lone Star Overland.  Chris and Laud have extensive experience exploring in and around the state of Texas and bring a wealth of knowledge to the roundtable.  They are both based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area so if you're in that area be sure to link up with them for some adventures.  Even if you're just planning a trip through their area, shoot them a message.  There's nothing better than getting to know an area with someone (or a group) that really knows an area.

 

Some of the areas that were recommended to explore are:

 

Big Bend 

 

Palo Duro

 

Katemcy Rocks

 

Hill Country and Enchanted Rock

On this session of the Overland Roundtable we discuss some philosophies and tools that people use when planning trips of less than a month.  We are focusing on trips that are less than one month long because once a trip takes on that magnitude, the process and tools change a bit.  On this session we have two guest panelists and both were discovered in the discussion thread on one of our favorite forums, American Adventurist.  If you’d like to continue the discussion, then go ahead and jump in and share your mind with the other American Adventurist fans.  Lets introduce our guest panelists.
 
 
Raul Banuelos from Xpedition Outfitters.  Xpedition Outfitters is an online retailer that sells a wide range of gear that you would find useful on your offroad and overland travels.  Xpedition Outfitters sells offroad bumpers, roof top tents, recovery gear, roof racks, interior accessories, gas cans, awnings and camping gear.  Raul enjoys shorter camping in the southern California and Nevada areas with his family because that simply works better for his current stage of life.  Raul has quite of few projects going that were not discussed on this show but I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing him back on future sessions of the roundtable or The 4x4 Podcast. 
 
 
Mike Learey from the American Adventurist website lives in the Dallas area and frequently explores the Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas areas with his family.  Mike is a wealth of knowledge in the offroading world and freely imparts his knowledge on the American Adventurist forum.  You can usually find him all over the site and is always friendly.  Be sure to head over to the American Adventurist and participate in the discussion.

On session 5 of the Overland Roundtable, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various camp setups that are popular amongst overland travelers. The rooftop tend is a trendy, and expensive, accessory but it may not be right for you.  The ground tent is widely accessible but has some characteristics that may not be well suited a long trips or wet environments.  We had the pleasure of having Matt Henwood from Main Line Overland join us to discuss his expertise with Four Wheel pop-up campers.  Four Wheel Campers slide into a pickup bed and transform your truck into an offroad ready camper with all the creature comforts you can imagine. 

 

Guest Panelist: Matt Henwood from Main Line Overland

Matt Henwood serves as MLO's President, and has a deep passion for overlanding since it blends two loves: motor sports and the great outdoors. An SCCA enduro race driver, off-road rally enthusiast, and motorcyclist, Matt also enjoys rowing, hunting, fly fishing, hiking with his wife Kristen and their dog Gunner, and exploring new areas of the world whenever possible. Expeditions in various modes of travel include: Utah, Colorado, Vermont, Maine, Alaska, British Columbia, Vancouver Island, Alberta, New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Iceland, Europe, and South Africa. He has a rich automotive background, from restoring English classics, German sports cars, and American hot rods, to classic and modern 4×4s and motorcycles.
