Roverlanding: Overlanding in a Land Rover Defender.
In other words, exploring places we couldn’t reach otherwise and writing about it just for you.
This is truly what we love to do. Explore new places, take our time, and really live the experience. La Poderosa, our ’95 NAS-D, is certainly what facilitates our adventures. She is, without a doubt, a crucial member of the Sean and Mittie team. Want to meet her? We can tell; she already wants to meet you. Learn about La Poderosa by clicking here.
We are gearing up for the trip of a lifetime. As overlanders, this is as classic as it gets – driving the Pan American highway, starting with the Rover in Argentina, driving into the Patagonia, crossing the Darien Gap between South and Central America. We are so excited that we can’t stand it. Want to come along for the ride? Check it out here.

Down Mexico Way, Land Rover Monthly
Even the savviest of travelers likely hasn’t explored Northern Mexico. It gets so much bad press, that we decided to do it. Our experience was beyond magical. We absolutely loved it – never felt unsafe. It was totally inspired!
Grab this article to read about our overland adventure in Coahuila, Durango and Chihuahua, plus our unfortunate roll over accident.
Jungle Life, Land Rover Monthly
Living in the high mountain desert of Central Mexico, we yearn for water. That’s when we take the Rover out adventuring in parts unknown to get a break from the dry, dusty plains and get our feet wet. Our rugged 1995 NAS Defender 90 does a great job of getting us into remote areas. Today she’s taking us somewhere we’ve never been – into the hot, wet heart of the Mexican jungles in the Huasteca Region.
Finding UJ in Mexico, Land Rover Monthly
Read our article on exploring Real de Catorce in our Land Rover. It was a fascinating trip through some pretty unforgiving terrain. We lost a u-joint in the process.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“We venture out in the valley below Real de Catorce to explore the small towns, like Refugio de los 14, Santa Cruz de las Caretas, Estacion 14, Walde, Vanegas, and the fascinating desert flora and fauna. The trail we take out of Real is the old entrance to the town – a narrow road of dirt and rock heading down the mountain with a sharp drop off on the right. Signs caution: “4×4 vehicles only”. Further down, the trail comes to life with cactus blooms.”
Freedom on Four Wheels, Land Rover Monthly
This is about getting as far as possible on as little as possible. It’s about living the travel dream in Mexico and, in particular, a little nook that we love, Mineral de Pozos. A ghost town in semi-arid central Mexico, it plays host to some strange abandoned mining structures in the middle of the desert.
