Planning Your Own Big Adventure?

When we were still in the planning stages, we relied heavily on the other overlanders who had gone before us… here, we keep the cycle going, with detailed truck and camper info, lists and links to the gear we love, extensive information to help you cross each border (with dogs!) and our up to date campsite listings.

Gear We Love: Here you’ll find links to some of the gear that made the Big Adventure a success.  We are not Amazon affiliates and aren’t getting paid to promote these products, unlike a lot of the other gear lists out there.  What you need, or want, may be completely different but these are good starting points to preparing for an extended overland trip.

The Never Bin – Find out what was inside our giant plastic bin that we didn’t use once in over a year and a half!

Border Crossings with a Dog:  You won’t find more detailed, step-by-step border crossing information than over at Life Remotely however they were traveling without a dog.  We used their advice most of the time and have basically updated it here to include dealing with the hassle of traveling with your dog.
