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!

Mercedes Unimog - A Walk Around Video

Drive The Globe - 1979 Mercedes Unimog Walk Around - Overland Expo East 2017

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:


Overland Expo East 2017 Photos & Video

Overland Expo East 2017 is a wrap. Beautiful weather and a great venue at the Biltmore in Asheville NC brought out large crowds to view the many overland vehicles & motorcycles, attend classes and meet adventure travelers from all around the globe.  A big thank you to Roseann & Jonathan Hanson and their crew for once again putting on a first class event. Michael Ladden and Carl Davis represented Drive The Globe at the event and took the photos below. 


2017 Land Rover Muddy Chef Challenge



The Land Rover Muddy Chef Challenge was established in 2008. 2017 marks the third year that Drive The Globe has participated in this "Top Gear meets Top Chef" event. The weekend is a great mix of gourmet vehicle based cooking challenges and off roading. It is also the perfect opportunity to catch up with old Land Rover friends and meet new ones.  The 2017 edition took place in Manchester Vermont and included all of the amenities the local area has to offer.  Nightlife at the camp site included the fantastic cocktail camper from 13th Street Cocktails & Stony Creek Beer.  This year Drive The Globe was honored with winning First Place in the Muddy Chef Challenge Entree category & second place in the Dessert category. A special thanks to Chris from Rovertek & Carl from Xtreme Mobile Adventures for the quick field tune up on our series IIA truck- it made for a much better drive home. Also thanks to our own Carrie in the Drive The Globe support truck for bringing the jerry can of fuel after I ran out of gas 15 miles from the event site.
