Ever thought about building up the ultimate family overlanding road trip rig, loading up all your recreation gear and heading out on the road with your kids for a whole year? In this episode we talk with Carrie and Nate from Our Journey Overland about how they’ll be traveling North America for a whole year in their Toyota Tundra, 4 Wheel Camper and custom utility bed trailer. There are a million different vehcles and setups you could use, but our friends Carrie and Nate settled on a pretty amazing one based on a used Toyota Tundra, a used Four Wheel Camper and a custom utility bed trailer and a lot of deals, finds and hard work.

Before they set out on their year-long overlanding adventure, we caught up with them at Snag Lake, CA to get a tour of their setup and how it works for them.
