Bats Offroad

Being born and raised in northwest Arkansas, I grew up camping, fishing, hunting and floating the Ozark National Forest. My love for offroading didn’t develop until after I bought my first 4 wheeler as an adult. From there it progressed thru different 4 wheelers and side by side rigs and on to where we are today…. Jeeps. I married the love of my life in 1994, and over the last 30+ years, we’ve shared many of these experiences together. So, the combination of all these activities into vehicle based adventure exploration defines what overlanding means to me, and is why I am so passionate about it. If I’m not working or overlanding, I’m talking about overlanding, or the gear we use, on THE Overland Podcast with my Bro, Joey Slayton aka Brofessor Adventures.
