Overlanding in my Toyota Prius

Have you ever heard of the term Overlanding? I know I hadn’t until recently and i didn’t know what the definition was either.

Overlanding is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanized off-road capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time (months to years) and spanning international boundaries.

Vehicle-supported, self-reliant adventure travel, typically exploring remote locations and interacting with other cultures.

VEHICLE-DEPENDENT EXPEDITION

The best part is, Overlanding in a Hybrid is something very very people have ventured into. My goal is to build “The Ultimate Overland Toyota Prius”.
