Avalanche Overland Build: Meet the Participants of the 2020 Four Wheeler Overland Adventure

Making off-road memories.

Overlanders: Peter Hansen and Makayla and Makena

Vehicle: 2002 Chevy Avalanche

About: "I overland because I love to explore and get out in the middle of nowhere, and camping almost always produces the best stories. And no one wants to get old and have boring stories for the grandkids." The pickup was good to go as is, including a factory rear locker, meaning minimal mods were needed to have a solid overlander: 6-inch lift, wheels, and tires, all of which are Pro Comp. A custom bed-mounted rack holds supplies, with the bed of the truck being large enough for all sleeping bodies. Peter sometimes brings along a trailer for family camping trips.

The 2020 Four Wheeler Overland Adventure takes place November 16-20, 2020, and will begin in Wickenburg, Arizona, then conclude in Mayer, Arizona. The event will include highway and backcountry driving by day led by a professional off-road guide and camping at night. The expedition will feature 20 overlanding-equipped rigs, handpicked from dozens of applicants.
