Overlanding by definition is self-sufficient travel to remote places. Michigan Overland is a community of like-minded adventurers in pursuit of that definition and more. Our primary goal is build and grow Michigan’s overlanding and adventuring community. Giving people one place to come and ask questions or seek out content. We are all about vehicle dependent travel and adventure related efforts. It’s about the experiences and memories we have while traveling. Getting outdoors and doing what you love is the important part and overlanding is the means to get you there. Michigan Overland is about adventuring in any form, in any season.
Reviews, trip reports, and informative articles are what we try to bring to the table on a consistent basis. Everything we write is written for and aimed at those just getting into overlanding. But that does not mean someone who has been overlanding for years can’t gain something from what we have to offer.
Overlanding has seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the past five years. This once small community has ballooned into everyone having their own overlanding thing. Jump on Facebook or Instagram and do a search for overlanding and you’ll end up with hundreds of pages, each with their own unique spin. While each has their own uniqueness, the underlying principle and mindset remains the same. The overlanding basics series is your starting point if you are new to overlanding. If you’re coming from rock crawling or a car camper that wants to expand into something new, this series will help you understand what overlanding is all about.
We try to run and organize a meetup or trip once a month. These events are open to anyone interested in joining. It does not matter what you drive or your level of knowledge, we encourage everyone to show up.
