Overlander of the Month - Ryan from @awkwardturtle.taco

by Stephan Edwards

One of the most amazing aspects of overland life is getting to know other like-minded adventurers. There are so many of you out there doing incredible things on the road, and we here at Overlander want to highlight travelers that have inspired you. As always, thank you for your nominations, and for helping to keep the inspiration in our traveling community on full boil. 

See you out there on the road!

Ryan - Overlander of the Month

 

The Overlander of the Month for June is Ryan from @awkwardturtle.taco. She and her family and their Toyota Tacoma were nominated by Michelle Chase (@sexybeast.sd on Insta). Michelle says,

"Let me tell you about my amazing friend Ryan. She is a mom of two little ones ages 7 and 2. She packs up her truck with the two kids and their dog Bane. She does her research and plans out her trips but always staying fluid because we all know things change.

She can't say no to an adventure. She is an amazing mom, friend and just a good person. She has traveled alone with them along California, Idaho, Arizona and Nevada. As a group we will be headed to New Mexico and Arizona this October. Ryan is always up to learn something new and is continuing to grow. She isn't a person who talks about things, she is a person who does them."

A winter overland or camping trip is uniquely rewarding. It takes a little bit of extra planning, and some special kinds of preparation, but it opens a whole new world of exploration.
