About The Way Overland

G’day!


We’re Jolie and Mark and welcome to our Patreon community page!


If you’re here, no doubt you’ve seen our Youtube videos and are thinking of jumping on board and helping out with the videos.

At the moment, the Troopy’s stored safely in the Caucasus, and we’re at home waiting out COVID and Australia’s international borders to open so we can get back on the road.



Previously while on the road, we used Patreon to assist in covering the cost of making the videos. This included music subscriptions, internet, equipment, lodging, etc. As we wait now we’re catching up on the story and working through the backlog of footage. As a result of our mishap in the Middle East we incurred a significant debt, damage to the Troopy, as well as lost equipment. We’re using Patreon now to assist in the rebuild, recommencement of the trip as soon as possible, in addition to all the other associated costs ie music, equipment etc.



Prior to leaving we both worked in the construction industry, Jolie as a Building Designer, and Mark in Construction Management. Shooting and making videos is a long way from our normal and has been a steep learning curve (as you might tell from the earlier videos!). We don’t post videos for the sake of posting videos and aim to make sure the episodes tell a story. A huge amount of work goes into making the episodes and we’re always striving to increase ours skills to try and make a quality production with an engaging story of.



We’ve travelled extensively overland previously and wanted on this trip to share the opportunities and advantages travelling like this can produce. To date we’ve driven approximately 50,000kms over 2 years across 17 countries, living as simply as possible in an effort to avoid the tourism bubble and connect with the locals.



We aim to post no more than one video per week so you could jump on board for less then the cost of a bevy!



Hope you’re enjoying the videos, thanks for stopping by!

Cheers,

Jolie and Mark

Since embarking on this incredible adventure, we've had a lot of fun documenting the journey to share online. Our biggest motivation behind making the vlogs is to hopefully inspire anyone wanting to travel, and also try to break the stigma around travelling to countries which get a bad wrap in the media.

Creating the videos has taken up more time than what we originally anticipated, taking up around 2-3 days to edit an episode. As such the speed at which we travel is quite slow meaning our savings have had to stretch for longer than what we'd planned and are coming to an end. We love creating these videos and hope to continue to do so with the support of our Patreon's, as without it we wouldn't be able to keep making them.

With the support of our Patreon's we can continue to keep making the episodes with a true representation of how we travel, good and bad, as we travel off the beaten path to remote places in search of unique cultural experiences and epic landscapes all the while doing it without changing our style. Your support will also enable us to pay for costs incurred for making the videos (music subscription, data, equipment maintenance and upgrades, etc), allowing us to continually try to improve the quality of each episode we create.

Thanks so much for your support,

Jolie and Mark
