Default How I Overland (Overlanding Tips)

I've just finished a ten part video series on driving the western half of the TransAmerica Trail (TAT) What may be of interest to some, even if watching 2-1/2 hours of overlanding videos isn't your cup of tea, may be the segments that are appended to the end of each of the ten TAT videos. Below is a list of basic overlanding subjects, and direct links to that part of each of the ten videos.

Note that after each video I have a presentation on a variety of topics that may be of interest to Jeep owners, or overlanders in general. The topics, their start times, and a direct link to each segment are listed below:

Part 1, 13:36. Mapping, the products we use in the field, and what we use to process routes and maps before a trip.

Part 2, 15:55. Camera gear used in the field.

Part 3, 13:30. Photo and video editing hardware and software I use in the field and at home.

Part 4, 13:25. Route planning How to create a route in Google Maps and make it suitable for use in Backcountry Navigator.

Part 5, 12:20. Communications gear.

Part 6, 14:41. Electrical system modifications to my Jeep.

Part 7, 13:50. How I use the Nexus 7 Android tablet in my Jeep.

Part 8, 14:58. Modifications Ive done to my Jeep. (Note that communications gear, electrical mods and camp life are addressed separately).

Part 9, 14:18. Camp life.

Part 10, 19:10. Tools and recovery gear I use.
