Overland Trips in the US

Have you been hearing about overland trips and would like to try it someday? If yes, then let me give you couple of great destinations in the US that you must give a try. You should have your used travel trailer and pack everything for an awesome ride.

Overlanding is actually among the most popular outdoor activities for those who seek adventure and thrill not just with your car but also with your used travel trailer. It is somewhat similar to backpacking but this one is tougher because it is partnered with set of wheels to bring you cross country than taking buses, trains and the likes. There’s a distinctive goal with regards to overlanding and it is to make the best of the actual journey itself and not just reaching your destination.

As what is discussed earlier, overlanding is one of the latest crazes in cross country adventure and it is considered as self-reliant travel to remote locations of the country wherein you’re supposed to enjoy the trip and the destination. To make it simple, you will be travelling on longer distances and on unusual terrains in an off-road and rugged vehicle that is designed for this purpose. Of course, you have as well your used travel trailer which carries everything that you need in order to get through the trip.

I’m pretty sure that you are excited to know more about this journey and the destinations that you will be through with your vehicle, so let us start.

Number 1. Mojave Road – as for this route, it is passing through California and could not be ironic for a newbie in overlanding. The Mojave Road is actually a 140-mile stretch and requiring 2 or 4 days to complete. Therefore, it is a nice overlanding trip and experience if you are running short of time. Also, if you want to take this route, make sure that your vehicle has 4wd capability as the trail crosses from east to west as well as several mountain ranges.

Number 2. Cape Lookout National Seashore – the North Carolina barrier island would be the ideal alternative in case that you’re not into a deserty trip but still like to see fair amount of sand. Few of the best routes that you can take in this region along with your used travel trailer is the 56-mile National Seashore located at Cape Lookout.

This one includes South and North Core Banks and if you don’t want to go through any hassle of ferrying your car, then you may stick to North Core Bank. However, it is worth to give a try to ferry your vehicle and your used travel trailer to South Core Bank as well.
