Gareth Griffiths under the guise of Sirocco Overland has many years experience of Overland trips. When he and his partner Lisa Grubb, decided to emigrate to Australia from the UK what better way than to drive.
John and Suzanne Curran describe themselves as two 50-somethings who wanted to experience “Adventure before Dementia.” Not having done anything like this before they naively jumped in at the deep end and purchased a VW Syncro T3 (named Tigger for obvious reasons) and prompty hit the road.
Kirsty Larmour discusses the merits of travelling with kids, how they “prepared” for the trip, how the kids process and interpret their experiences and whether life on the road is beneficial to a child’s development.
We chat to Jason Hamasu from Oregon Trail Off-Road about their 44 day challenging overland expedition retracing the historic Oregon Trail through 6 states. Their route followed the original wagon trail set out by pioneers in the early 1800’s as closely as possible.
We chat with Australian/British adventurer, David Priddis about his love of short motorcycle trips and his 4-year overland trip around the world in two Land Rover Defenders.

We chat with 4x4 overlander Paul Crittenden about his introduction to overlanding via the Mongol Rally and his 4 year, true circumnavigation of the Earth in his 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon.
