Here’s a beautiful video from Petrolicious about a man who learned to drive and camp with his parents in a ’50s-era Willys jeep. He still has the jeep and the original camp trailer they would tow. This what camping and making memories is all about.

 

This great video from Jay Leno’s Garage the other day features Montana-based Legacy Classic Trucks and their restomod 6×6 Dodge Powerwagon. Restomods, as you may know, are classic cars or trucks that have updated mechanicals. This truck is powered by a 4-liter Cummins 4-cylinder diesel with mountains of torque. Such a nice truck…

Chris Harris, one of my favorite YouTube presenters, gives a quick overview of the Mercedes-Benz G350 G-Wagen for the UK car magazine Evo.

It’s refreshing to see a video from the Middle East that’s about the people and the land, instead of the turmoil. Modern Motorcycle Diaries takes us aboard their KTM 990 on a trip through Oman. It looks beautiful.

Here’s another overlanding video from Down Under. YouTube user Ronny Dahl takes us to Murchison off-road adventure park in western Australia with a few friends. There are five trucks in the video. It’s interesting to see how each driver handles the obstacles a little differently. There’s some nice drone footage as well.

Save this one for when you have some time. It’s an hour and ten minutes of overlanding action as three mates head up the wild east coast of Australia’s northern Cape York Peninsula.

When I say wild, I do mean wild. They’ve gotten permission to drive much of it along the beach and have to take tides into account when rounding rocky points and crossing rivers. That and, of course, avoiding the crocodiles while doing a bit of night fishing. It looks like a lot of fun.

How cool is this? What a great trick to add to your list of camp kitchen skills. Give it a try during your next off-road adventure. Greg, I’m looking at you! 🙂

Thanks to my lovely wife, Natalie, for the tip!

5,000 miles across the USA in an old GMC conversion van? Sure—if it looks this good and has the camp vibes to match. You have go-van.com, an online magazine about van culture, to thank for bringing you along for the ride.

Every once in while I like checking out the scratch-built R/C cars in Headquake’s scale off-road adventure videos. The above features a Jeep CJ5. The one after the jump features a custom rock crawler. They’re just superb.
