On this episode, we bring you an interview with Taylor Adney.  Taylor is the CEO of Overland Textile Co (, a company that specializes in bringing quality clothing, leather goods, and other high quality gear to the overlander, offroader, and outdoor enthusiasts.  Taylor is also involved in a group called, The Overland Adventures ( that explores, primarily in the northeaster areas of Oklahoma, and the surrounding areas, including Arkansas and the Ozark National Forest.  Taylor is also a primary panelist on the Overland Roundtable (, a podcast that discusses topics specially related of overlanding in all the various forms.  


*REMINDER!* – Please be sure to stay on the trail, and be sure the trail you’re on is actually shown on the current Motor Vehicle Use Map. If the trail you’re on isn’t on the MVUM, then it’s not a trail and you’re breaking the law. Unfortunately illegitimate trails are cut all the time and just because there is a dirt path through the woods doesn’t mean it is an official, legal trail. If you’re caught on one of these illegitimate trails you may face fines and it’ll be a check mark against OHVs in the area… so, please, resist the urge to explore that random trail heading off into the woods and do your part to keep public lands open to OHVs by staying on legal trails. . . #overlandtextileco #overland #overlanding #overlander #overlandcommunity #overlandfamily #offroad #offroading #wheelin #wheeling #camp #camping #explore #adventure #exploring #explorer #exploration #expedition #adventuremobile #usfs #ohv #mvum #breakinthelaw #keepitlegal #keepitpublic #followtherules #oklahoma #ouachitanationalforest #brokenbow #hochatown

You’ll likely notice that the videos and pictures that Taylor publishes are top notch and we discuss the reason for this on the podcast.  Taylor even gives away some of his tips on how you can produce better images and videos of your offroad adventures.  Taylor is fairly new to the offroading segment, having begun roughly 4 years ago.  He began his journey into the activity after picking up an old Toyota 4Runner.  After spending so much time and effort working on the tired old motor, Taylor moved up to a fourth generation Toyota 4Runner.  This newer rig was, almost immediately modified.  The modifications include lift, roof rack, roof top tent (which was a surprise gift from his wife for Christmas), and more.

Outdoor Edibles:  We asked Taylor what he likes to make while on his outdoor adventures.  Taylor prefers the simple approach to cooking outside and enjoys roasting hot dogs and brats on the fire with his kids.  Preparing food at home and then taking it to camp also helps speed up the meal prep process.  Sandwich stuff is always and hit and can travel well too.


Gear Review: Mr Buddy Heater – North America’s Most Popular Portable Propane Heater! This patented radiant 4,000-9,000 BTU Liquid Propane heater connects directly to a 1 lb. cylinder and is the perfect solution for heating enclosed spaces like large tents up to 200 sq. ft. The expertly engineered size to BTU ratio is augmented with a fold down handle to give this heater maximum output while retaining a minimalistic footprint. A swivel regulator gives you the ability to adapt usage from a disposable cylinder to a remote gas supply with the purchase of a hose and filter. To light the unit, simply rotate the knob to pilot and push. Then the integrated Piezo sparking mechanism will take care of the rest. With the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) and accidental tip-over safety shut-off you can be sure that you will enjoy years of comfortable indoor safe heat

    Great episode! This fellow UZN215 owner agrees that the USFS interactive map is great for trip planning, but I wouldn’t want to leave home without an offline reference such as Avenza PDF Maps + downloaded MVUMs, as Dan suggested. This helps me find dispersed camping areas on the fly, as well as alternate routes in case of unexpected obstacles. I have yet to figure out how to use MVUMs as overlays in OsmAnd.
