    Journey West is about overlanding and off-roading the American West. We'll showcase a wide variety of trails (both popular and obscure), provide recommendations and tips to help you explore on your own, and share what happens behind the scenes as we explore the West ourselves.

    In particular, we'll focus on:
    * Arizona overlanding / off-road
    * California overlanding / off-road
    * Utah overlanding / off-road
    * Colorado overlanding / off-road

    We'll also cover overlanding gear, overlanding vehicles, camping gear and tips, and a variety of other topics related to backcountry exploration. Show less
