So again @mrjordann, what is overlanding? Is it a word from Australia to describe loading up your vehicle with camping gear and driving some place ( the outback) and setting it up?
I’ve been doing that same thing for decades. Being gone for weeks, or a month at a time. I was always camping.
But I do dig the opportunity to post my camping photos and view the other folks who also enjoy camping out from their 40’s.
Overlanding is remote camping. With an emphasis on the “getting there” part. YES most 40 owners that have been at it for a long time have been doing this already. Overlanding has a bigger focus on self reliance and the gear to get you there.
That should sound familiar to most 40 owners.
Nothing wrong with the term "overlanding," or, for example, with the term "tactical." But each can be abused to the point of silliness. Since I helped popularize the term "overlanding" for better or worse, here's my rule:
Sleeping bag and tent in the back of a pickup: camping.
Sleeping bag and tent in the back of a Land Rover: overlanding
Sleeping bag and tent in the back of a Land Rover, and your name stenciled on the door: expedition.
