Michigan Overland isn't just about running trails in whatever four-wheel drive vehicle got you there. It's about experiences. It's about the people you meet. It's about having stories to tell. It's about getting outdoors and doing what you love whether it's off-roading, camping, hiking, hunting & fishing, biking, kayaking, or skiing. It doesn't matter the season. It's about adventuring in any form.
