The Full Story
Team Overland was founded in 2015 with a simple mission to help Veterans reintegrate back into their communities when they return home. To accomplish this, we facilitate free guided overland adventures all over the Pacific Northwest. Our trips, which are always free to everyone, range from quick single-night adventures in the Cascades to week-long multi-state expeditions. We recognized the overland adventure lifestyle as a perfect platform to connect and support the Veteran families in our community. On the trail, we provide all necessary gear needed to access the outdoors, and our Trail Guides work hard all year to ensure guests have a safe and enjoyable time. Team Overland is a 100% volunteer-run organization with every board member, trail guide, and volunteer giving their time and resources to make these trips successful.
