The Adventure Podcast returns with an all-new episode this week, this time sharing an interview with Max Webster, the founder of Hastings Overland. The Vancouver-based travel company offers customers the opportunity to rent fully-equipped Jeep Rubicons and turns them loose in the great outdoors of British Columbia. A month or so back I had the chance to experience what Hastings does first hand and came away extremely impressed. In this episode, we chat with Max about how he came up with the idea, what Hastings brings to the table for travelers, and his favorite overlanding destinations.
Before we jump into that interview however, my co-host Dave Adlard and I share the latest adventure news, including updates from the summer climbing season in the Karakoram, an Indian climber who is accused of faking her Everest summit, and a stunning new course record at the Western States 100. Later, we also talk outdoor gear with both of us recapping summer Outdoor Retailer with a list of products that stood out in a sea of new gear.
You’ll find the latest episode of the show available at the bottom of this blog post if you want to listen to it directly on the web. You can also download the show and subscribe through Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, and Spotify.
