This is our second installment on Overland Expo covering products. Besides the classes and workshops, there’s a whole section of the Expo devoted to vendors. What follows are some of the more interesting ones that Greg, our man on the scene, spotted.

Next year’s Overland Expo will be held May 20–22, 2016 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The event offers a chance to work on your overland driving skills, attend workshops and classes, watch films and demos, and offers a tangible air of camaraderie. They’re already taking reservations. If you’re interested, click here. Read the rest of this entry »


Natalie found this great blog post on setting up a camp kitchen. It offers tips, like marinating all of your meats in advance and then freezing them into ice blocks to help keep the cooler cool, and resources for things like coolers, enamel plates and coffee percolators.

Find it on naturemomsblog.


Not happy roasting wieners on a stick? Itching to make homemade pizza on the trail? Roast squab, perhaps? If you have a rig that can carry an extra 41 lbs of cooking gear, I have just the thing for you: the Coleman Outdoor Portable Oven & Stove.

It’s powered by a 1-lb propane cylinder (or you can adapt it to a 20-lb cylinder, if you want to do more serious backwoods baking).

Up top, it sports two matchless, 6,000-btu burners. Down below a 3,000-btu oven with a temperature gauge helps ensure that you won’t burn your crusts. Maximum pizza width: 12 inches.

Available at Cabella’s for $250.
