If you've not heard, overlanding is growing with significant popularity. Why? Well in our opinion; simple. Adventure, the outdoors, travel and meeting the most warm hearted people around the globe is everything the sole is yearning for. We attended the NW Overland Rally and could not have been more grateful, humbled and flat out felt welcomed. From the few "celebrities" (absolutely normal awesome people) who blew the doors open on the concept of overlanding, to amazing people with either zero, or several years of experience. We found all of them open to chat with us with warm smiles, open hearts and willing to share their stories on the GHT Overland Podcast.
This episode is a re-cap of our experience at the rally, with about a 20 min. reel of the attending vendors telling you who they are and what they offer. Interestingly we heard an attendee ask Clay from XOverland if he felt the industry was becoming too commercialized. You may or may not feel one way or another, we see that as a personal opinion. Some will say yes, and corporate sponsorships or involvement is not welcome. We say, cool. Keep it simple and go have an amazing time. Our take is that we appreciate and enjoy the innovations, comfort, and gear that make our adventures fun, relaxed and documented. At the end of the day the Vagabroads said it best; You do you :)
The following are the names and links in alphabetical order for the vendors attending the rally. We hope you enjoy their 30 second (+/-) personal introductions to you.
NOTE: vendors in bold are Rock Stars doing Good in the world.
