Overland Training - 2 Day Course

This is an introductory course to overlanding and 4x4 skills and vehicle recovery for experienced and non-experienced folks alike. These courses can also be included as part of our custom built adventures.

Because I keep the classes small I can tailor the training to the group. I enjoy training couples or groups of friends because overlanding as a "team" is both safer and helps to get all parties interested and involved when planning your own overlanding adventure.

Day 1 will include an intro to map and compass navigation, then we'll move into understanding your 4x4 and how to overcome basic obstacles and then finish with a trail drive to get you comfortable with the basics. That night we'll spend time talking about overland cooking and camping, telling stories and getting acquainted.

Day 2 we'll get into more detail on daily overland practices and add any details we missed on day 1. We finish the weekend with a challenging trail drive and a little hike with some amazing views. All of this while camping and enjoying one of our beautiful basecamps located in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

We also offer intermediate and advanced classes that include winching practice, to sign up for these classes you must first demonstrate your knowledge of basic overlanding/4x4 skills or have already participated in our basic skills class.



Professional 4x4 guidance and training, overland camping tips n' tricks, a warm campfire at night, and strong French press coffee in the morning.
