Around the World Begins. Right. Here!
In 2022, after the many and varied delays brought about by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we will finally begin the first phase of our round the world expedition. We will begin this odyssey by shipping our Land Rover Defender 130 in a container from the UK to Halifax, Canada.
Once we meet up with our Defender again, we will begin by driving due north, criss-crossing Canada all the way to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the most northerly point in North America reachable by car.
No sooner than when we will have arrived, we will set about turning right around and travelling back down the full length of the infamous Pan American Highway. This massive journey will see us exploring the road less travelled throughout North, Central and most of South America — with no shortage of interesting diversions along, and old friends to meet along the way.

Not ALL of them drive Land Rovers, but no-one’s perfect… This is a hand-picked starter pack of inspirational Vehicle Dependant Overlanders – the REAL DEAL.
The daddy of them all! Overlanding royalty, the Bell tribe have been criss-crossing this planet, in their Defender 130 called Mafuta, for well over a decade and are still keeping the pedal down. These very nice South Africans also publish some really nice books…
The nicest overlanders in the world.. judging by their large collection of fantastic YouTube videos! Indefatigable Aussie Leigh, and his partner Steph (or Frenchie!), never fail to deliver from some of the remotest reaches of the planet, whilst never losing their smiles. Afghanistan anyone?!
Tim and Kelsey also provide some of the most rewarding and informative overlanding videos on YouTube, packed full of stunning wild camping across North, Central and South American, and a wealth of technical and offroad advice that would usual cost some serious money…
