Team Bio

"Behind every great expedition there is a team humbled in their accomplishments and grateful for the experience."

     Ox Overland started as a team that set out to retrace the historic Oregon Trail in their expedition vehicles.  But what began as a once in a life time expedition evolved into the mission to explore our nations historic trails.  Our hope is to reignite awareness for the lost history our country was built on and inspire others to follow their passions and pursue adventure.  It takes more than a few to facilitate the execution of such a historic adventure, so meet the OX family and the team that makes it possible.
