Alaska\Yukon Expedition Video Series

I did a quick search, and didn't see anything, so if this is a re-post, I apologize. I stumbled across this series of HD videos of a groups preparation for, and Expedition to Alaska. It's in Toyotas (would have preferred to see them in Rovers of course, but..), but I found it interesting to watch and well done, so I thought I'd share..

Enjoy..

Met them at Overland, Montana plates caught my eye, Bozeman area. Nice guys, out for fun. On way home saw they had pulled over to help a Pinzanger that had broke down.

I've watched half of them, but skipped a lot. To me, its really more of a "we bought cool stuff for our trucks and occasionally go wheeling and camping but mostly sightsee and laugh on camera." The production is pretty good and for the most part it is enjoyable.

My wife and I were discussing the 'where does all the money come from for all this stuff' question while watching. Seems they have a lot of equipment sponsors, judging by the credits. So I assume much of the equipment was donated to them for the 'air time' because they planned to document and post there travels?

Still enjoyed watching the series, and thought is was pretty well done for what seemed like a fairly amateur production..

They had an arrangement with the xenture company to trial their trailer and many of their mods went into current production design.
