An unquenchable thirst for adventure clearly runs through the veins of so many of us. Emily and Danny are no exception! After 3 ½ years of Full-Time Overland Living and 11 Countries, there’s a lot to learn from Emily and Danny, popularly known as The Vandersons.
After building out their 2015 Promaster 2500 they took a similar approach to launching their overland travel adventures as we plan on. Getting warmed up and working out the bugs in the comforts of your home country. Then embarking into the Alaskan wild frontier driving the Dalton highway to the Arctic Circle.
Following a chilly dip in the Arctic Ocean it’s a bone chilling u-turn, heaters on high and locked in on a somewhat permanent southernish bearing. After many challenges doused with countless epic views and adventures, we finally caught up with these two as they crossed the border from Colombia to Ecuador.
In this episode Emily and Danny openly share their experiences through stories chock-full of overland travel knowledge gained from thousands of miles traveled as overland explorers, van life enthusiasts and as we say; salt of the earth good people.
