Important Things to Remember when Overlanding Part 2

Overland AdventuresIn a previous post, we discussed some crucial things that you will want to bring with you on your overland adventure. Depending on your destination and route, this list can be very long. We thought we would share some additional items you will want to include on your list.

Spare Tire- You never know when you are going to need to change a tire. Your chances of having a flat tire are higher when you are on overland adventures because you are going off-road with your vehicle. You will also need the items to assist you when changing your tire including a jack and lug wrench.

Flashlights- You will always need to have more than one flashlight on your trip just in case the first one burns out or you lose it. You can never be too prepared when you are packing for an adventure.

Shovels- You will want to bring along at least one shovel in case your vehicle gets stuck and you need to dig it out.

Not only do you need to pack the essentials, but you also need to be able to locate each item when you need it. We recommend putting items together based on what you will be using it for and then place it in an easy to locate bag.

Off Road Vehicle AccessoriesWhether you are planning a trip for the entire family or your closest friends, there are a couple of essential things you need to remember before setting off on your adventure. Take a look at our list below to help you better prepare for an epic journey.

Understand Your Route- One of the most important things you need to do is to determine what route you are going to take. Once you have selected a course, you need to examine it carefully to ensure there are no surprises while you on are it. You do not want to be coming over the top of a hill and realize it is actually a cliff at the last minute. A little planning will go a long way when it comes to your excursion.

Come Prepared- Once you have determined the route, you can then determine the number of supplies you will need. We recommend bringing more just in case your trip takes you a little longer to complete.

Have Fun- There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into an outdoor adventure such as overlanding, but you need to remember to have fun while you are out there. Take pictures and create many memories.

At Standing Stones Expeditions, we have all of the off-road vehicle accessories you need. Call us at (959) 200-9306 for additional information.

3 Things to Bring With You When Camping in Your Vehicle

Overland Gear and EquipmentPreparing to explore the wilderness? There are a couple of things you need to remember to pack for your upcoming adventure. Check out our list below to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your trip.

Tents- There are a variety of tents to choose from when it comes to camping. However, you need to be cautious when purchasing one because you need to make sure that it can hold up to the elements you are going to use it in. For example, if you are going somewhere and the weather will be harsh and damp, then you should purchase a tent that will be able to keep you warm and dry.

Fuel- Bringing along the estimated fuel you will need on your adventure is ideal. We recommend you bring additional fuel in case you get lost and end up burning more fuel than expected.

Grill- Depending on how long you will be gone, you should consider bringing a grill along. There are small, portable grills that you can easily find a spot for in your vehicle.

These are just a few things you are going to need on your trip. For more overland gear and equipment, you can count on Standing Stones Expeditions to have what you need. Contact us if you have any questions regarding a particular product or process.
