Nine days ago, I was writing an article for our blog about all the things we wish we’d known before we started overlanding full-time. But the article was getting so long I spontaneously decided to write my first ebook–a goal I’ve been putting off for years. My ebook published today and I’m excited to share it with you.
I say in the prologue that if you’re willing to apply these lessons we’ve learned the hard way, then you will save money, stay safer during your travels, and be prepared mentally for the challenges that are a natural part of overlanding.
To give you an idea, here are the first five chapter titles:
- Stuff is a sad substitute for experience
- Stuff is a sad substitute for hands-on training
- Payload capacity doesn’t go away if you ignore it
- Overlanding involves intentional self-deprivation
- Logistics involved (can’t play constant tourist)
If nothing else, you’ll enjoy this book for its sheer entertainment value at our expense, as we share the stories behind HOW we learned all these lessons.
But in all seriousness, these are important principles I wish someone had laid out for me when we were starting our overland journey in 2018. Even though we had been traveling full-time since February 2014 by RV, overlanding was a different animal in many ways.
As we share the lessons we learned, we explain how we worked through them, with tips and resources you can apply to your own adventure.
Did I mention my ebook is free? All you have to do is subscribe to our email list, which is how I’m able to share the PDF file with you. Once you have the ebook, you can save it to the device of your choice and refer back as many times as you want.

“What We Wish We’d Known Before Overlanding Full-time”
It’s a joy to share our journey with you. Some of you know I’m going to be writing a book about our travels, but getting started on such a big project has been intimidating. Having this first ebook out there in the world is an important stepping stone for me.
I look forward to your feedback. Thanks for reading.
