Overland Gear Guide 2019 - See Home Page: Overlanding Gear & Tech
Eric and Brittany Highland are in their sixth year of full-time travel. They own no house or land, they are full time travelers overlanding in their Jeep “Guardian” and a smaller RV called “Basecamp”. In the last two years they have done all their travels with their son Caspian (also known as #LittleNomad) visiting thirty three National Park Service units within the US. They recently returned from the interior of Mexico, overlanding with just their Jeep for seven weeks. Eric and Brittany had a significant amount of practical knowledge to share, pulling from both their overlanding experience, along with impressive knowledge and tips from their RV experience that translates directly into overlanding.
Be sure to listen to their two part episode for new tips, ideas and inspiration from a couple who has taken the actions needed to realize a life of full time travel. Overlanding with a toddler, working full time and planning for a future of overlanding the world. There is a lot to learn, and great stories to enjoy.
