VIDEO: The Ultimate Bug Out Rigs of Overland Expo Pt. 2

Last weekend 28,000 overland and off-road enthusiasts gathered at Fort Tuthill Park in Flagstaff, Arizona. Our very own Tyler White was there looking for equipment to outfit his truck, but he was also checking out all of the amazing rigs that people have built for extended backcountry travel.

In this video, Tyler gets a tour of the EarthCruisers Terra Nova model. This is truly a next level truck with many features that rival those found in modern homes. With over 50 gallons of fresh water capacity, additional filtration capabilities, a composting toilet, and solar panels paired with lithium batteries, the Terra Nova is an amazing rig right of the EarthCruiser shop.

Not every bug out plan requires a dedicated rig. In this video Tyler checks out a Vorsheer trailer, which is a very capable platform for long-term sustainment in the backcountry. With a trailer you can easily tow it behind your daily driver and leave it packed and ready all of the time. This trailer may just be the best option for many preppers that are looking for a great mobile basecamp for bug out situations.

Tyler White is one of those rare creators of online survival content who is amply qualified. Growing up on a ranch, Tyler learned about homesteading and preparedness as a way of life, taught by grandparents who had lived through the Great Depression. Although he had already worked at a guide in Alaska, served with U.S. Army, Tyler knew there was more to primitive survival than he could learn from military schools or other outdoorsmen. His passion for primitive survival drove him on a quest to track down the most knowledgeable instructors in the field, traveling from Utah to the Amazon to Canada and finally back to Utah. Like all competent survivalists, Tyler has experience in a broad range of subjects. Highlights from his background includes criminal justice, law enforcement, archery, small arms, amateur radio, farming, gardening, raising cattle, and poultry. He has attended classified schools, worked in law enforcement, studied too many martial arts to list, and achieved the rank of 2nd Dan in Shōrin-ryū karate.
