My summer is rolling on, showing the Jeep and telling stories. It's a little surreal meeting people who have been following me the whole time, though also great fun.
THIS WEEKEND (Aug 23/24) I'm showing the Jeep and speaking at the Great Smokey Mountain Jeep Invasion in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The Jeep will be on display inside the convention center where I'll be giving tours and telling stories.
As a special guest of the Southern Four Wheel Drive Association I am presenting my African Adventure from 4pm-5pm on both Friday and Saturday.
I'll be speaking in classroom #1.
See you there!

Good to hear Dan!
Are you still sleeping in the Jeep on your travels?

I'm moving around North America displaying the Jeep and giving presentations and talks about what I've done.
This weekend I'm at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler County, Pennsylvania. It's been great to meet so many people that have followed, and even a ton of people that had no idea what Overlanding is, but are stoked to get out there and have adventures.
Last night I took the Jeep into downtown Butler, PA for the "Jeep Invasion" where they shut down the city with a ton of cool Jeeps on display. It was a great night, and the Jeep stood out like a sore thumb with the roof up.
I'm at Bantam all weekend, come on by and say hello!

I imagine everyone has tons of questions about the whole expedition, so I'm doing an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit.com right now.
Come on over and ask me absolutely anything about the expedition.
It's all on the table - safety, money, health, budget, visas, route, people, animals, the Jeep.
You ask it, I'll answer it.

I wish I was back in the Yukon now, you'll be driving right through where I live in Whitehorse.
Quick advice - from Whitehorse go North to Dawson City, then across the top of the world highway.
Before Dawson poke your nose about 60 miles up the Dempster Highway to Tombstone Nat. Park. Even if you just go that far and turn back it's well, well worth it.
In Alaska make sure you get down the Kenai Penninsula - down to Seaward and over to Homer. Stop for some salmon fishing on the russian river - it's epic!
Have fun, I miss the North every day!

Absolutely, current plans include EJS 2020. I was actually aiming to be there this year, but shipping out of Egypt turned into more stupidity than I was expecting - and I was expecting a lot!!

Hey Dan, I just want you to know that you're one of my inspirations to get my trip to Deadhorse, Alaska underway. Just me and my Jeep. Leaving Wisconsin and heading north in just a few weeks. Love your travel reports! Keep them coming!

Great, great journey, Dan! Thank you so much for taking me (and the rest of the world) on board with you through this awesome trip. It's hard for me to believe I subscribed to this thread about two and a half years ago, seems like yesterday...
Well done and I am very happy for you to see this huge dream come true.
Take care and, hat off to you Sir!

Hard to believe it has already been almost 3 years! Congrats!
I just got back from my own extreme adventure... Moab!
And speaking of... maybe plan on being at EJS 2020!? Not sure if that fits your criteria, but any excuse to go to Moab is a good one, IMHO.

The Jeep has arrived in North America, and now I'm on a mission.
I'm presenting, showing the Jeep and speaking on panels at Overland Expo in Flagstaff, AZ next weekend (17th, 18th, 19th May).
I will also be at many other Overland/4x4 shows over the summer, the full list is here: http://theroadchoseme.com/touring-ov...-shows-in-2019
Let me know if there is a show you think I should go to that isn't on the list currently.
Also, after months of work (It started back in Nairobi, Kenya), I have published my coffee table photography book of Africa!
With 77 full color pages containing a double-page spread on every country, info on the Jeep, the expedition and some fun numbers and quirks too. Each country is a blend of people, landscapes, wildlife and daily life – the parts of Africa that I will never forget.
The Jeep and I make the odd appearance too.
It's available now on Amazon!: https://amzn.to/2H93IUH

|chris87xj||Thanks for sharing your incredible journey! I've quite enjoyed following along and hate to see it end.|

Awesome adventure !!! Actually just got my first jeep, a 99tj a couple weeks ago. Just joined forum a few days ago and came across this thread yesterday. And since then have lightly read thru all 21 pages(sorta read back cover of book) and unbeknownst to me that your adventure ended yesterday. Yeah, read back cover but not last page lol. Seemed like it was an amazing time props to you. Now its time to go back and read the book, all the videos and such. Oh, and your adventure got my first post.
Congratulations on trip well done !!!
