Happy New Year 2018 | New Video Posted

New Video On DTG TV!

As we close out 2017 we are experiencing a brutal sub zero cold freeze here in the North East United States. I get many questions about the Unimog, and recently a number of them have involved the cold weather and its suitability for Arctic adventures. Just how good is "that truck" in the freezing weather?  Well, to close out 2017 here is a short video that answers at least part of the question. Will it start? 

Happy New Year, all the best for 2018 and most of all we wish you safe & happy adventures!

New Road To Tuktoyaktuk Opens

New road marks the end of an era.

A $300 million dollar all season road project that took 4 years and several decades to plan opens November 15, 2017. For those of us who had the opportunity to drive the seasonal ice road from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk it is a bittersweet moment. That road was only open each year from mid December to April, leaving Tuk isolated the remainder of the year. It was quite an experience driving first on the Mackenzie river passing frozen ships on the way and then driving on the Arctic Ocean before reaching the frozen town of Tuk. 

The following images were taken on the ice road during Drive The Globe's Arctic Circle Expedition in 2007.

For more information and news regarding the road opening:

The following video was filmed at the 2017 Overland Expo East at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina by Jason Koertge of Swell Runner Overland. 

Jason, and Drive The Globe's Michael Ladden cover the Unimog from bumper to bumper and show why this vehicle is unique and adventure ready.


A big thank you to Jason for this awesome video. Be sure to check out his other work at:

Climbing The Morrison Jeep Trail

Featured video from our friends at Red Olive:

In the late fall of 2016, we left Cody, Wyoming early in the morning for the Morrison Jeep Trail, a narrow, winding path that stretches from Wyoming river valleys to the mountains of Montana. Watch as we claw up the rocky, muddy Trail in our modified Toyota Tacomas.
