Christian Pelletier on Not Taking Traveling the World so Seriously
Matt Scott and Scott Brady interview Christian Pelletier on his time working in West Africa, buying used vehicles in Australia and South America, and the not taking travel so seriously. Christian is a technology professional (also Overland Journal's CTO) that has traveled to over 80 countries.
Christian got the overlanding bug back in the 1990s when working in and exploring West Africa, and it never left him since. He has been involved with Expedition Portal and Overland Journal since the early days and has seen the market grow and explode in the last few years. When he is not busy exploring a remote corner of the planet, you can find somewhere around Lake Tahoe biking or snowboarding.
Scott is the publisher and co-founder of Expedition Portal and Overland Journal and is often credited with popularizing overlanding in North America. His travels by 4WD and adventure motorcycle span all seven continents and includes three circumnavigations of the globe. His polar expeditions include two vehicle crossings of Antarctica and the first long-axis crossing of Greenland. @scott.a.brady

He is the only American to ever become an editor of a major Australian 4WD publication and has over 15 years of competitive auto racing experience. @mattexplore
