Personally EO is a bit comedic to me, gobs and gobs of money on pretentious overly serious trips. They'll have all the paramilitary gear, the "training", "security" team, name their vehicles and all this echo leader bravo foxtrot crap like theyre not basically just filming a family road trip for youtube. The Australian bros on the otherhand are straight up frat boy party animals and make no bones about it. They're there to have a good time, crack open a cold one at the beach, and have kick back with their mates. The aussie bros dont bother me even with the ludicrously expensive builds and crazy stuff because they dont take themselves that serious and theyre clearly just there to have some fun, the EO type overlanders are just way to serious to me.
One of the seasons started out with a montage of self-defense training and one of the crew (maybe two?) was referred to as being charge of security...so maybe security team member would have been the better phrase....I mean, I still watched the whole thing so it obviously wasnt that off puttingSecurity team? We had a security team? They must have been super stealth

Drive 1/4 mile down a dirt road, pop the RTT and then post 50 pictures of your gf’s ass on Instagram as she pretends to do stuff around the campsite.
If overlanding has all the latest bling, what is it called when you purposefully seek out old beat up used equipment that is as old or older than the occupants of the “base camp”? I have reverted back to canvas waxed tents and white gas because it reminds me of our camping trips of my youth. After reading this, I may never bolt anything to the outside of my rig again. Not really but....

I don't seek out the old stuff, it just follows me around and won't quit.
The silver cylinder thing was a big splurge back in the day. It's a pump that gets the stove running quicker in subzero weather. The delux pot gripper, _pretty_ damn extravagant too, since the stove already came with a one.
Non-essential s*** is relative.
