If you are interested in overland travel, as a hobby or a lifestyle or if you’ve ever had the urge to quit your job, sell everything and jump in or on a vehicle to travel the world but don’t know where to start, the Travel The Planet Overland will serve as your field manual.  Intended to inspire and educate others to embrace the great wide open, the manual walks the readers through comprehensive topics ranging from choosing and building your own vehicle to making money on the road, staying healthy, raising and educating children, dealing with border crossings, living in the great outdoors, and everything in between. Packed with beautiful photography, it’s a manual that might be the last nudge you need to go off the grid.

Written to inspire and inform, Travel the Planet Overland Field Manual is the second edition of the exceedingly popular book first published by Graeme and Luisa Bell in 2016, now with 70% new content! A decade lived full-time on the road, across five continents and over 70 countries, has taught our family how to thrive and survive the overland lifestyle, read more about us below. We share our hard earned knowledge and wisdom with you, the reader in this 300 page, 8.5×11″ full color, hardcover book.

This Kickstarter will bring Travel the Planet Overland back to life, better in every way. The OG Travel The Planet hardcover book has long since sold out. And due to consistent requests for new information from followers and the meteoric growth of the overland travel lifestyle, we have committed the time and resources to compile a second edition of Travel the Planet Overland. Practical chapters on a variety of fascinating subjects are complimented by glorious images from around the globe – the book is as inspiring as it is informative. From armchair travelers to world explorers, this book has something for everyone and every page is entertaining.

As of November 25th, this project has raised $16,000 of their $19,352 goal. This project has 5 days left to raise the $19,352 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $39, you will get one softcover book.  For a pledge of $58, you will get one hardcover book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
