What should people expect from an Overland trip:

stunning views, what-you-put-in-you-get-out attitude, not to have to shower everyday, great people to travel with, flat tires, late nights, lots of pictures to sort out, lots of outdoor adventures, different food you used to, truck games, adjusting to and learning about local cultures.
