After purchasing their Unimog with a plan to build it out over three years, Sonja decided after one year they needed to start their overlanding adventure around the world as soon as possible. Just go! Now on the road for over one and a half years, they will occasionally stop for a week or so to make changes or add upgrades as they travel. The naming of their truck was genius; wanting to make sure the potentially intimidating looking machine had a friendly name, they wanted to be approachable to people as they traveled. ELMO is an acronym for Expedition (E) Survival / überleben (L) Mobile (MO) making it easier to have contact with new friends. And who wouldn’t smile at a cute little red guy on a Unimog.Dirk and Sonja go through a lot of great tips and stories in this two part episode, not excluding the harder parts of overlanding in areas of the world that are in war, safety is a vital consideration. Sonja and Dirk do a great job of going through all these helpful details, along with many tips and good stories of their overlanding adventures.

Find all GHT Overland podcasts at: https://ghtoverland.com/podcastsFor Overlanding Gear visit https://ghtoverland.com/overlanding-gear-guideAs we look for new potential guests to interview, we tend to be attracted to those with multiple countries visited, overland travelers who highlight local foods, local people and their experiences. Not necessarily that perfectly beautiful social media page, rather those that share the great parts of overland travel alongside the challenging parts, or even the regular day to day life of an overlander. Michel and Renée of @Overlanding_the_World exemplify all of these characteristics, so you can imagine our excitement when they agreed to an interview.An Amsterdam couple who decided an overlanding trip around the world was a much better idea than buying a house (we totally agree!). This a fun interview loaded with great information, tip and stories from the road. Michel & Renée also agreed to dive deeper on overlanding safety, and why they choose to visit countries like Iran and Pakistan. It’s an eye opening conversation as we try to better understand why so many overlanders are still visiting countries with such political turmoil. Of course we also discussed all our normal topics and enjoyed their stories from all their overlanding experiences as they follow the sun around the world. Be sure to follow them on social media for their firsthand accounts of each country they visit.

Cory and Brie caught our attention as they left for their mega-moon overlanding trip about a year ago. We’d never heard of a “mega-moon”, and these newlyweds were doing it overlanding style! Apparently the mega-moon idea is fairly popular. The idea consisting of a multi-country or even multi-continent itinerary. On October 8th 2018 in Seattle WA Cory and Brie pointed Ullr (their Toyota Tacoma) South, and hit the gas pedal. We caught up with them (virtually speaking) in Chile to learn from their experiences over the last year, hear their stories from the road and talk all things overland travel. Check out their two episodes as they celebrate their 1 year anniversary on the road as newlyweds, overland travelers, skiers and adventure enthusiasts. Be sure to check out their blog and social media pages (links below) they’ve amassed an epic collection of blog posts documenting their trip and experiences in each country. You can also read about their truck and camper prep, packing list, insurance plans… everything!Website: https://ullrgoessouth.wordpress.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ullr_goes_southFind Links and all show notes at: https://www.patreon.com/ghtoverland/postsMusic by Shane Brown / www.shanebrownmusic.com

Find all GHT Overland podcasts at: https://ghtoverland.com/podcastsFor Overlanding Gear visit https://ghtoverland.com/overlanding-gear-guideWhen it comes to powering up all your electronics, or just knowing you can start your overlanding vehicle of choice each morning, battery health and all that comes with the ability to keep the fridge cold, the LED lights bright and a strong winch ready for the toughest jobs at the worst moment; having safe reliable power is essential to all overland travelers. David Walls of Overland Power Solutions joins us this week for a special educational episode on powering your adventures. Safety was at the top of my mind as David and I talked all things electric for overlanders. We cover battery types; pros, cons, types, cost, longevity… Dive deep into DC to DC charging versus using a battery isolator, overland solar options, and of course safety. How do you wire it all up without fireish nightmares?To no surprise, there’s a lot that goes into designing and installing your electric system safely. As David points out several times, there's no shortage of available information on the subject. It’s about narrowing it down specifically for you and how you’re going to use the system so that it can perform optimally. Information paralysis is real, we appreciated the depth of knowledge David has along with his ability to break that knowledge down in a way most anyone can understand it.Checkout the episode for usable information you can put into practice immediately. We learned a lot, and hope you will also benefit from the education David provided. You can also reach out to David with the links provided below. Consider Overland Power Solutions if (like us) you’re not an expert in proper electrical system design and/or installation. As life has probably taught most of us by now, do it right the first time, or fix it pronto. Get the best quality parts possible the first time to save money down the road replacing broken or burnt (super bad) stuff.Website: https://www.overland-power.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/overlandpowersolutionsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/overlandpowersolutionsFind Links and all show notes at: https://www.patreon.com/ghtoverland/postsMusic by Shane Brown / www.shanebrownmusic.com
