Before I stared adventuring off pavement, I use to drive a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser TRD. This is when a gallon of gas in California was $5, which is similar to our situation right now.
I switched to AWD vehicles, but I didn’t find my Goldilocks rig until I switched from a 2013 Nissan Juke to a 2010 Subaru WRX to a 2015 Subaru Forester XT to finally settling on a 2019 Honda Passport. After 3 years of ownership and 100K miles, and traveling up 13,114 ft elevation, I’m pretty darn content with this vehicle. I switched vehicles 4 times in a 6 year period!
So, in this video, I interview 5 other vehicle owners about their experience. Hope this helps the community figure out the right overlanding vehicle the first time.
Also, LET’S HEAR IT! HOW MANY VEHICLES DID you go through before you found the rig that fits you best at this point in your life.
