    My brother turned me onto these interesting webisodes about a group of guys who go overlanding. Thought maybe some of you might like it.

    Season 2 in Alaska departs in 163 days according to their Facebook page. And their new vehicles will be a 2013 Toyota Tacoma (Silver DCSB) and a 2000 Toyota Landcruiser. Very excited to see the new season whenever it comes out.

    From the frequency of their trips and some of their bios online, it sounds like they do have full time jobs. One of their pictures on Facebook has a screenshot of an iPhone calculator with a caption talking about trip expenses, and the number on the calculator is 10K+. :eek: Wish I could join them on some of their trips...

    I agree, but at the same time, they have to market it somehow. All-in-all, we can't be too choosy since there aren't too many overland shows out there, excluding the periodic Top Gear UK special.

    I'm enjoying their show. They've done a good job with character development. My sister-in-law has Crohns disease the same as one of the guys and that really hit home. I love getting out when I can with the family and exploring, but when family duties take up most of your time it's nice to live vicariously through their show. I hope they can keep this up for a long time to come.

    Did they get rid of the 1st gen taco?

    I like their vids too. I wish they'd use a gnarlier tire than the A/T though.
