We are Ewan, Carly and Jaxon Winter, a young family with insatiable wanderlust, a passion for the outdoors and exploring. Carly and I are constantly looking for our next adventure and are now turning our truck into an Overland rig!
This website was started in 2013 and the idea was to travel blog a little about our wedding in Mexico, but mainly our 3 month honeymoon traveling around Australia in a 1989 Toyota 4Runner. The trip was incredible but as it turns out trying to blog while on your honeymoon is a TERRIBLE idea.
From there our lives back in Canada became very motorcycle centric and we started to write a bit about our two wheeled adventures. Fast forward to 2020 and we now have a young son so moto travel is off the table for a while, but as the #OverlandBound community will tell you “adventure is necessary” so we have now shifted our focus to turning our 2014 GMC Sierra into an Overland rig and we have some big plans for the next year or two… or three.
We have done a lot of vehicle dependant travelling together around North America and Australia over the years and have been lucky enough to have a number of great trucks and Jeeps but this will be our first proper RIG build.
Bare with us as this space and our social media pages are in transition mode. We will be posting details of our rig build, gear and travels here. We love being on the road and meeting people so reach out and say hello and maybe we’ll see you down the road. social media.
