In case you missed it, overlanding is officially a thing. For the uninitiated, overlanding is all about adventures—you guessed it—over land, usually on big wheels equipped with knobby tires. Overlanding is not necessarily rock crawling, blasting across sand dunes, or fording through streams, but can incorporate these elements and more.
