Liberating Leash on Leaving the Desk for Solo Overlanding
Overland Expo scholarship award winner Alicia (@liberatingleash) shares her experience of taking her job and life to the road for long-term remote work and travel. Her story is an inspirational account of how she pursued her dreams and left with a stock 4Runner to cross the United States.
Alicia has been on the Road for about 3 months now and has been enjoying her time on the road immensely. She has been taking her time coming up the West Coast from Baja stopping in Northern California to see family and making her way to Overland Expo PNW. As a Overland Expo Foundation scholarship recipient, she felt the best way to give back was to volunteer at Overland Expo PNW.
Alicia’s favorite experience of her trip so far has to be the month she spent navigating through Baja. She said it was a lot easier to do than even she thought. Spending her first few nights at traditional pay campsite, she moved on to free beach camping and now whenever she looks for a place to stay, free is first on her mind.
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
