Overland Journal Caters to Hardcore Roadtrippers

The Fall 2008 issue of the Overland Journal seduces roadtrippers with 132 pages of adventure travel journalism and absorbing photos.

Stories in the current issue include "Mexico Travel Tips for Adventure Riders" and "Sahara: the Empty Quarter Part II."

Based in Prescott, Arizona, the Overland Journal bills itself as "North America's only vehicle dependent expedition publication."

It was first launched in Spring 2007 and publishes five issues a year. A one year subscription in Canada or the US costs $45, which includes delivery.

And while new ventures are always a risk, Executive Editor Jonathan Hanson knows his trade: he has written numerous books and contributed to nearly two dozen magazines, including the venerable Outside Magazine.
