Thanks for posting this up Steve. Who were the guest speakers?

Nice to see that Land Rover was in attendance with a Defender as well.

Also curious if you noticed any Overland Journals being passed out by the organizers. We sent over a few boxes to the RGS to support the event.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Steve.

I'm envious of those that have been able to wheel in North Africa (see stickers on the Disco) - that is something I hope to do someday.

Sort of sad to see the anti-theft cage around the spare - if you have to worry about that you're not likely to be enjoying the destination too much.

...and a DOUBLE roof-top tent! Now that's SURE to raise some hackles around here!

I assumed that was just a grill that goes over the campfire.

Hello to all that replied..... even MR Chapman that continues his negative vain.....oh how it must be to be perfect hahahaha....The event was a great sucess with alot of overland vehicles that have done not just Africa but Oz, Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia and South and North America....and a couple that have done all of the above (Jealous)....the grill you see on the back of the 80 series cruiser is a grill (Brai...south african speak) for cooking and the like, wouldnt recommend putting it away until the next morning though unless you fancied some new grooves in your tyres hahaha

Does anyone else think the word overland could become the tactical of the truck world?

It's certainly heading in that direction right now.

Well, having 170 year old exploration societies use the term is a good start...

This guy is pretty tactical. http://www2.expeditionexchange.com/f...5&d=1243289150

I bet the guy who drives this truck has two different sets of keys, two cell phones, and a pager clipped to his belt.

ah so tactical means organised and everything in its place.....and just for the record the guy that owns that vehicle is a very laid back guy that has travelled all over the world with his vehicle and isnt motivated by phones and the like, more the greater world and its cultures.....oh how I love those that judge others from a point of ignorance....hahahaha

John, I just checked and www.overlandexchange.com is not yet a registered domain. You guys can snag that and follow your demographic.

There's little doubt the term "overland" could become the next "tactical," if we're not careful.

(Steve, FYI, gun magazines and accessory suppliers in the U.S. have taken to attaching the adjective "tactical" to completely ordinary pieces of kit, to make the consumer think he shares equipment with the local S.W.A.T. team and will immediately absorb their death-dealing skills by osmosis simply by using this specially designated flashlight or belt or keychain.)

On the other hand, we needed a term better than "off-road," which we don't do, or "back-road," which is indistinct, or, God forbid, "wheeling." "Expedition" is way overused and diluted. At least I can come up with a reasonably concise definition of "overlanding," which I doubt most of the "tactical" guys could do.

So there's nothing wrong with the term itself, as long as we don't wind up with overland valve caps and overland bungees and windscreen banners that say OVERLAND. But it's probably inevitable for a while, as the concept grows. Since we're surfing the wave right now, I'm not going to complain too much, although I will try to gently dissuade manufacturers who want us to review their Overland Litter Bag or their Overland Steering Wheel Cover.

Steve, those are great photos. Thanks for posting them.

Another phrase I recall hearing when I first started was "off-pavement" as opposed to "off-road." I suppose it's as indistinct at the others, though.

Cheers Jonathan....I understand now....lets hope someone doesnt come up with a "tactical overlander" or has this already been built????

We had one of these to play with at Eastnor a few months ago...
