Taking Slow Travel to an Unbelievable Level

In 1999, Ian Coates set out for an adventure that was supposed to be just four months. But, he got a bit sidetracked and was a few years late. He had no plan, no map, just the desire to explore and experience, and a positive, easy going attitude that literally took him places. He experienced cultures and people in ways that most of us miss as we rush from place to place. An incredible tolerance for things that go wrong and patience that is almost unbelievable, retirement just may have been the best thing that ever happened to Ian.

Overland Expo

Overland Expo was founded in 2009, an event drawing in people from all over the world to both the West and East of the United States. The goal was to inspire people to do overland explorations and to educate in the necessary skills and resources. Founded by Roseann Hanson, together with her husband, Jonathan Hanson, they oversee all that goes in to the event.

Roseann has been passionate about the outdoors since a young age, she’s travelled all over the world, and has worked in the adventure field as a *guide, journalist and conservation program director. She’s been involved with many outdoor, exploration and environmental organizations, is a Tread Lightly Trainer and Land Rover Driver Trainer.

Jonathan’s passions include both land and sea adventures, from Land Cruisers to sea kayaks. Through his travels around the world he’s experienced diverse cultures such as the Seri Indians and the Inuit. Journalist and author of a dozen books, he also teaches outdoor and off-road techniques including *tracking, natural history writing and 4WD techniques. He’s involved with many conservation and outdoor organizations.
