*UPDATE: The Budget Overland Podcast ended in February 2024. I (Benji) started a new podcast/project called "New Found Overland". Welcome to the Budget Overland Podcast! If you like exploring, camping and nature you'll find this podcast interesting, relevant and entertaining! My name is Benji Ward, I created Budget Overland in 2021. What started out as me creating a Facebook page in hope of connecting with other like-minded people, quickly led to having a Podcast, YouTube channel and connecting with a lot of really cool people from the overland community worldwide!  Like most of you, the idea of having to spend a lot of money in order to go camp in the woods wasn't very appealing. With a handful of other hobbies plus having a wife and young son, spending a lot of money upfront just wasn't an option.  There's nothing wrong with big ticket items.  "Buy once, cry once".  Having a better understanding of your needs vs wants can provide a clearer choice when time times to pull the trigger on the more expensive items.  I have low end gear and premium gear.  The more you get out. Camping and long trips, you'll soon know what your "needs" over "wants" will be.   We have real life discussions about overlanding.  Guests range from noobs to pros and all in between!  Hope you enjoy!  -Benji

    Cody | White Dog Overland

    Cody | White Dog Overland

    In this week's episode, I sat down with Cody of White Dog Overland. He is very passionate about history and discovering new things while he overlands Arizona. We go all over the place, we even jab at the overland world for a minute lol Enjoy!

    BIO
    My names Cody, and yes, I am just another overlander although I’m trying to use my platform to show you more than just gear and camping. There’s so much more to this hobby than the commercialized portion wants you to see. Joined by my dog, we hit locations all over Arizona and New Mexico that most overlanders won’t show you. I focus on the history and experiences of these backcountry routes to try to embrace more than just location, but the back story of the first people who traveled there.

Great podcast

I’m new the this overlanding thing so every penny I can save is great. Love listening to the podcast and hearing the stories and the answers to the listener’s questions. Keep doing good.

bravesbaseball22 ,

Great listen and informative

Been in the overlanding game since 2020 and enjoy the conversations and knowledge sharing. Get out and explore Gods beautiful earth.

Feraljku ,

Great show!

I have listened to all episodes. A very fun and informative show, even better that it is based right here in the middle of the country. I look forward to Mondays and Thursdays!
