Happy New Year’s! Over Christmas Holidays we’ve been working on editing past outings that haven’t been published. We’ve completed a report on a fantastic adventure we had back in the hot summer of 2018. Two trucks, two off-road trailers, and two families drove from the Fraser Valley to the Cariboo region, linking dirt tracks and forest service roads to complete the route.
Check out the Trip Report here:
A collection of photos from a 2017 excursion from the West Coast to the Kootenay Region – all part of the ongoing saga to find the highest drive-able roads in British Columbia.

A week long solo trek with my truck and mountain bike to the Pasayten Wilderness. Each night I was serenaded by the various bird life in camp, and there was many encounters with snow blocking roads. Oh, and also a visit from border patrol…

This year the whole family attended the BC Overland Rally at it’s new venue in stunning Whistler, BC. Check out our event report for all the photos from the weekend as we share our experiences from the rally.
2019 BC Overland Rally Event Report
This year will be somewhat different when it comes to our multi-day open-invite group trips, such as the larger Roam Wild event usually held once per year. Last year we had six trucks, nine people and one dog come along for a week of exploring various stunning locations. It was so much fun that everyone in attendance claimed a spot for the 2019 trip, before it was even planned! Unfortunately, this meant that there would be no open-invite this time around as the group size was already quite large.
Recently, we attended the BC Overland Rally in Whistler, there we managed to pick up four other adventure vehicles to tag along on a two day trip after the event. We had a Jeep, Nissan, Toyota and even a dual-sport motorcycle join us! The two days were spent hanging around the campfire along a rushing glacial creek, and driving an old mining road leading above tree line into the alpine! Even though this was a last-minute plan, we had a blast and made new friends.
We hate to have to turn extra people away from this year’s Roam Wild (we’ve had quite a few requests), so we may just be planning a second group trip for November/December – a cold-weather event where we’ll put out an online invite for anyone willing to brave the snow with us! There’s also a new addition to the XPED family, coming later this summer, which means we’ll be taking time off to enjoy some days at home with the new little one!
Follow along with us on our Facebook page @ExpeditionBC for updates for group events as well of new trip reports, of course! Happy trails!
The largely anticipated Part Two of our big 2018 open-invite Roam Wild group trip is finally complete and published! If you’re seeing this for the first time, you’ll want to first read Part One to complete the story. The 2018 Roam Wild trip was a giant success and a highlight of the year for us. Thanks to all that came out, we’ll see some of you next year.

Are you a member of the 4WDABC? (4WD Association of British Columbia). If you are, then you’ve likely received the latest issue of the Backroader magazine in your mailbox. This is a great thing because Expedition BC had a short article published about travelling solo! The article was actually written at the campfire one night during a week-long solo trip here in BC. The 4WDABC is a registered non-profit and is the 4WD enthusiast’s voice for keeping open access to trails for our enjoyment, and all paid members receive copies of Backroader magazine among other benefits. Check it out!
We’ve published Part 1 of the 2018 Expedition BC Roam Wild group trip. This was an open invite from our Facebook page and it was the highlight of our adventures this year!
