Subcompact Culture in OutdoorX4 Magazine

OutdoorX4 Issue 14
A few months ago I was approached by OutdoorX4 (pronounced "Outdoor By 4") magazine to write a couple of articles for their publication, and my first article was just published. Titled "Small Rig, Big Adventures: The Ins and Outs of Subcompact Overlanding," the article is about how Mercedes and I have used our subcompact Suzuki Sidekick (aka The Teal Terror) and our Dinoot trailer to have some great adventures, get out there, and explore all over the place, despite the vehicle being small. There are tips about traveling light, only taking what you need, and how to select the right small vehicle for travel. I still steadfastly believe that you don't have to have a huge, expensive vehicle to get out and road trip it, explore off road, or just have an adventure. People do it on motorcycles, in tuk-tuks, on bicycles, and in cars all the time. However, knowing how to pack and travel lightly is important, so check out the article.

OutdoorX4 is offered six times annually in both a print and digital version. The print book is currently available for purchase at most major book retailers within the United States and Canada with select distribution internationally. The digital edition, which supplements all print subscriptions, was developed to be viewable on all mobile devices including smart phones, iPad, tablet, laptop, or desktop by using a web browser with social media integration, downloadable PDF option for off-line viewing, and other reader-enhanced features.
