First visit? His goal was to create a space for like-minded folks who enjoy adventure traveling to share experiences, inventions, solutions, reviews and other resources between each other, no matter how simple or advanced their vehicles and level of experience may be. I am a member of Expedition Portal, and have found it quite useful on my trips for years. The members of this community were the pioneers of overlanding, and they operate on a set of core values that are both important to off-roading as a hobby, and to the conservation of our wildlife and public lands.
Our industry simply would not be where it is without them. Frankly, many of them are posers in my book, who take their fully capable vehicles to a nearby patch of dirt, only to take photos with their roof-top tents and gear laid out, then pack it up the next day and go home.
Those photos show up on their social media accounts, attached to numerous hashtags cleverly designed to promote their page and get them what they crave most… more followers and likes. The grassroots members of the off-road community are starting to notice a difference between those who are really passionate about this hobby, and those who simply want to reap the rewards without putting in the work or taking on any of the risk.
Are they as upset about it as I am? One reason I'm so concerned is it seems very similar to what happened with tuner cars in the early s. That light quickly gave way to hordes of imposters who simply wanted to look the part, but had little performance work done to their cars and no racing skill either. So is there anything we can do to mitigate or stop this trend from becoming synonymous with off-roading in the public eye?
In the near-future, I do not believe so. As a traditional off-roader, whose biggest passion in life is to travel to unseen, remote destinations on this beautiful planet, all the while risking life, limb and mechanical failure, I can only hope that this fad of internet off-roading follows suit.
