Overlanding in British Columbia with @bctrailrunner

The last 2 years have presented many of us with new challenges to say the least. Our world is changing in many ways. Whether that be through technology, how we communicate, how we store data, and how we make the most of the time we have. Overlanding and off-roading has been around for a while but the popularity is rising rapidly. We can't blame anyone for feeling drawn to the great outdoors, unbeatable views, and new challenges.

We will always promote being outdoors and getting into overlanding, so it's only fitting that our next guest is a recent add to the overlanding club.

How'd you get into overlanding and off-roading?

Due to Covid19 and travel restrictions in place, we were given the opportunity to take advantage of being outdoors more, thus we started overlanding.

What keeps you into overlanding?

Overlanding helps us appreciate nature on a whole another level with our friends.

Tell us about your most recent trip, Why that location? What was the coolest moment? Any scary or recovery moments?

Most recent and memorable trip would have to be a place we found on Vancouver Island. My friends and I were there only ones in the area. Coolest moment was camping right by the waterfalls. It was a long drive but well worth it.

What is the terrain like in British Columbia?

There are different types of terrain, a lot of them narrow enough to have tree branches scrape along the sides of your vehicle.

Why did you choose 4Runner?

I wanted a vehicle that would be comfortable to drive on the road and off-road. Definitely made the right choice!

What in your mind separates the 4Runner from other vehicles on the market?

It’s a vehicle that would last a lifetime. It’s an suv that has enough space for overlanding.

Tell us a little about yourself and your hobbies.

I’m the kind of person who enjoys being outdoors. I also have passion for cars. I found fulfillment in overlanding.

What is the Canadian Overlanding/Off-Roading Scene like right now?

It’s getting really popular now. There’s so much to see in BC. Most people agree with me that the best way to explore is by overlanding.

Until next time! At Cali Raised LED, we not only want to encourage riders to try something new, (with all the proper precautions of course!) but also to not be too shy when it comes to checking out trails that they may not have thought possible. It's in our very slogan, "Rise Up and Seek Adventure." We really mean it.

Thank you to @bctrailrunner for sharing your story with us.

If you haven't figured it out yet, we've been featuring a trail or national park or other must see location each month of the year, and sometimes we are lucky enough to find other off-roaders who have been there. They are kind enough to share their experience and their expertise. Want to be featured? Have a trail you think we should feature? Submit your photos and story to partners@caliraisedled.com to be considered!
