Mountain State Overland is a YouTube series and vehicle-based guide service that plants Trees for the Future. Since its inception in the "Mountain State" (West Virginia) in 2013, this team of explorers have captured motion and still images that recount nearly 15,000 miles of vehicle-based adventure travels.
Weather is most often the least predictable natural element that influences any adventure and in Vermont, its rains when the snow melts.
The team packs up and heads for Vermont. There's only one thing certain - the trucks are gonna get a work out and the Vermont backcountry is the destination.
As the winter months lock a lot of us off the trails we often find comfort turning wrenches in the garage. Fine tuning our trucks for each mile we travel the next year keeps the spirit alive.
Join Mountain State Overland and follow their journey through New Hampshire and Maine. This 8 part series unlocks some of the truly special places that make New England "wild."
Watch Mountain State Overland kick off their first complete video series exploring the backroads of West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. This 10 part series recounts over 1500 miles of gravel, dirt, mud and good times.
Mountain State Overland's commitment to advocating responsible lifestyles supports awareness of Earth's natural resources. Mountain State donates a tree per every expedition mile traveled during filmed expeditions to Trees for the Future.
Each tree donated supports the development and management of forest gardens in Africa. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income.
With Trees for the Future, farmers in Africa learn to plan for their family’s future with food crops that will help them make more money, grow more food and build a sustainable future.
Simply said, "we eat better outside." These fun backcountry recipes bring gourmet to the trail. Each of these episodes include tips and tricks for prepping that perfect meal away from home.
After traveling nearly 15,000 miles through the Appalachian Mountains we've fine tuned our trucks to include equipment that simplifies life on the road. Filming on the run does not pair well with being unorganized and relying on gear you can't trust. Learn more about the companies that provide equipment to support our adventures.
This is where it all started. One camera, then two plus a couple mods and lots of traveling exploring locally.
