As some of you know I had the unique opportunity to be part of an exciting adventure with the Expedition Overland (http://www.xoverland.com/) crew this past spring. We spent 8 weeks adventuring from Montana to the bottom of Central America and the Darien Gap in Panama. Expedition Overland produces a high quality adventure travel series that can be seen online via YouTube, etc. Take a minute to check out the official trailer :cool:

The trailer is killer. Great video editing skills, although the ugly mug in the opening shot is :meh:... :) I like seeing those new 4Runners in action.

Nice! Should be a good series to watch.

The Darien Gap in Panama reminds me of this video I watched as a kid...I grew up in a Corvair family. Chevrolet sent a couple Corvairs down to Panama to do the Darien Gap. Pretty wild stuff.

Too cool! Found your Yukon trip on YouTube a few weeks ago and that's actually what woke me back up and rekindled my itch to wheel and overland. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to watching the latest adventure!

Vid 1. Nice! Some funny lines in there about keeping the "stock" and low profile look of the truck for central america...the promptly putting bumpers, racks, tents, lights, etc on the truck. :) I also like the med kit selection shot. Fully expected the guy to ask if you knew how to reattach an amputated limb and if you needed the kit for it. lol

Watched vid 3. Nice! Makes me want to go there even more, though I don't think I'll let my scuba air run THAT low....or eat spoiled fish sauce. Holy cow. Depth, current, stress, all make for quick use. Last time I did a deep wreck dive it was kinda like that and my air disappeared quick, but no freaking way I wouldn't have gone to surface once it hit the red zone. Those beaches look killer though, and almost nobody around!

Fwiw the truck was already built, nothing new was added beyond the wrap. Part of the "Keeping it low profile for Central America" was keeping it within the scope of Toyota's wants. I don't think they were being restrictive or had a list but they ultimately wanted us to test and use the 4Runner and if they are going to use it for promotional material, it needs to have a somewhat stock appearance. This isn't NASCAR :D

I also like the med kit selection shot. Fully expected the guy to ask if you knew how to reattach an amputated limb and if you needed the kit for it. lol

Seriously, Team 5 are some hard-core dudes!

Those beaches look killer though, and almost nobody around!

It was an interesting situation and one I've never encountered diving before. The dive master looked at Clay's gauge and repeated hand signals, and then literally turned around a swam off... as if it were of no concern or worry to him. I was nearby the entire time so we were prepped to buddy air if needed but the entire dive was confusing.

Binge watched the first two episodes last night - great stuff. Not sure if I'll get to number 3 tonight (I will eventually), but the team does a great job of building up for episode three through the first two!!

Must be a bit frustrating to be intimately familiar with the advantages of diesel in remote areas like this, and to not be issued one by Toyota. :)
Knowing that mileage sucks so bad on lifted trucks, why not install a 2nd tank? Did Toyota not want you to install a second tank on any of these?

Looks like an awesome trip! I would love to do something like that, just not sure they sell DEET by the drum.

Finished up episode 3 last night. Personally, I thought Ep3 was the weakest of this series - the build up to the unknown status of the trail over Ep 1 & 2 was well done and then the team got to the lodge and cruised to the end. Kind of anticlimactic for me, though that's adventuring for you. I gathered that the team had a huge sense of relief though since the clear road facilitated mission completion.

A couple of really key moments for me in Ep3:
-The issues with the chain-saws was reassuring in the sense that even the pros make mistakes (i.e., forgetting the sharpener, getting the wrong chains, etc.). I've often beaten myself up over forgetting pieces of gear. It happens; just have to learn to be resilient, creative, and how to overcome.

-The decision making scene in which Clay is ready to call it and turn around and Kurt suggests the recon party; really cool moment there that had a significant impact on the entire trip.

Overall, very much enjoyed these 3 episodes and was glad to have something to watch and be inspired by over the last few days.
