Jack & Jemma Overland Australia


Overland Australia with Ace the dog in a Troopcarrier

After a year of serious planning and savings, Jack, Jemma and Ace left as planned for a one year overlanding adventure around Australia. Both from Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, Jack and Jem are absolute perfect examples of making a plan and taking action. They both love camping and the outdoors and have outfitted their Troopcarrier for overlanding. We caught up with Jack and Jem after they clocked 3,000 kms (1,864 miles). They share with us their contagious youth and energy for overlanding, all their lessons learned, tips, gear selection and stories of travel.
