On episode 110, we have the pleasure of having John Kostuch from the Centre Steer Podcast join us. John brings his expertise on everything Land Rover as we discuss the end of Land Rover Defender production. While this is a sad day for Land Rover enthusiasts, this event is critical for Land Rover to move forward as a company. The Defender name is not gone for good though, as John describes on the show.

Hey guys. Been diggin’ the podcast! One of the latest mentioned covering electrical relays a little more in depth in a future episode.
Not that I’m the world’s expert or anything, but I’ve wired up more than my share, for a variety of different security, lighting, and other needs in my years as a 12v installer.
If I can offer any insight, feel free to hit me up!

I have to say, Dan and team puts his heart and soul into this podcast. Dan, Craig and Rich share their thoughts and ideas in a not overly produced podcast. I enjoy that this is just three regular guys talking 4x4s and sharing their thoughts. It’s been great to learn along with Dan as he shares his love of all things 4 wheel drive.

In this episode we discuss all the skills and topics covered during the 2015 Northwest Overland Rally and Workshop, or NWOR for short. The NWOR was a gathering of overland and adventure travelers from around the world. Most of the attendees was from the Pacific northwest area but there were some other attendees from some pretty far off places. If we got some of the details in the show incorrect, send us a correction and we’ll include it in the next show. Read more
This episode of the podcast will cover the entire trip from Kansas City to Fairbanks, Alaska in pretty general terms, in some ways. In the upcoming episodes we will really dive in and discuss the Northwest Overland Rally, the trailer that we built specifically for this trip, and we also have loads and loads of product reviews from the trip. The episode is a bit of a marathon at over 90 minutes but it covers a lot of information and experience from driving the Alaska Highway. Hopefully you enjoy the summary but look for more info in the written trip reports that will be posted on the website here very soon. If you have made the drive to Alaska from the lower 48 before, please chime in and send us some feedback.
On this episode we have Brett from Western Australia on the show to discuss what offroading is like in Australia. Are those kooky commercials of someone fording rivers and cruising down long dirt roads just to go to the grocery store fact or fiction? Unfortunately, before we can get into all the amazing tracks that Australia has to offer, we lost Brett thanks for a sketchy internet connection to the outback. Sometime we’ll get Brett back on the show to discuss the different areas to explore and what should be on your bucket list.
