Hosted by Daniel (Expedition Centre), the 1st Sydney Overland Meetup attracted a like-minded bunch of overland enthusiasts who were keen to hear the stories, like the one above, from fellow overland travelers.
David Priddis was our first guest speaker. He is a veteran overlander having completed a trans-Africa (Defender 200Tdi) and recently Asia and The Americas in his Land Rover Defender TD5.
David spent the next 90minutes sharing his various travel stories, tips and vehicle preparation.

Joining us for the evening were a group of like minded individuals, all passionate about extended overland travel. I had a number of interesting conversations: Matt and his overland trip from London to Russia ; Douglas and his motorbike adventures in Morocco ;
