Richard of @desktoglory got started with overlanding after he took a trip from Canada to Argentina. Along the way he wrote 120+ blogs about the trip. The funny thing is when started the adventure, he knew nothing, he set up the roof top tent for the first time the first day of the trip, and he hasn’t looked back since. You can follow him and his wife Ashley (@desktop_ash) as they travel the world in their 1990 Toyota pickup truck.

James and Justin over at @rockcreekoverland have created an adventure and expedition-based media group. The group has been involved in off-roading, outdoors, and camping for years, so overlanding was a natural progression for them as a team. As a group, they love getting to experience lesser seen areas away from the beaten path. If you want to see great outdoor photography, this is one of the best Instagram 4×4 accounts to follow.

With his off-roading teardrop trailer in tow, exploring the great outdoors with like-minded fellow adventures is what @boldoverland loves about overlanding. When they aren’t hitting the trails, they’re teaching fellow 4×4 enthusiasts about gear, like radios for off-roading and recovery equipment, technique on the trail, and how to tread lightly. They have a mix of I4WDTA trainers and Tread Lightly Master Treat Trainers on their team. For any tips and tricks on overlanding, this is the team to follow!

Chase is just a regular dude on a mission to explore new places, live life to the fullest, and experience new adventures. The best advice he can give to anyone who wants to overland is it’s not about having every mod known to man or every component possible bolted to your rig but having fun and making incredible memories and experiences. Follow him and his 2016 TRD Off-Road Tacoma Double Cab as they hit the trails for new adventures!

Brett and Liz of @ouroverlandlife travel the roads full-time in their 2011 Toyota Tundra and 2013 Toyota Tacoma. They had been traveling like this for years and finally found out there was a name for it: overlanding. So, from then on it seemed to be a natural progression.
