We here at Forge Overland take a real world approach on real gear and travel. We are not funded and work with real world budgets. Through our personal expertise in abuse, we subject our hand selected gear to trials in destruction to make honest and unbiased reviews, and we have been doing this since our forming in 2008.
We wanted to create an environment where anyone that wanted a professional venue to share their story a place to so.
Will is Forge Overland’s founder and owner. A Michigan native transplanted in Louisville KY, he is a Veteran, Professional Procrastinator and self-proclaimed Adventurer. Spawning F.O. from an idea on the back of a napkin to a community of over 25,000 in just over a year with the help of his trusty sidekick, Scott. He has been dedicated to the outdoors his entire life, from riding dirt bikes to modified trucks, his passion for the trail, writing and photography runs deep. Will currently pilots his trusty modified 2010 Toyota 4Runner Trail.
Scott is a Colorado local, born and raised amidst the Rocky Mountains. By the age of eight, he was camping, hiking and skipping stones across lakes near his parent’s mountain property. Back when the only video game was Pong on Atari, kids like Scott spent their time outside riding bikes, catching snakes and playing Street Hockey. In his years as an senior citizen, this passion for the outdoors looks very familiar, as modifying 4x4 vehicles like his supercharged Toyota 4runner became just another way to get deeper into the backcountry. Scott has passion for photography and a flare for writing and storytelling. From the White Rim Road, to the cliffs of Black Bear Pass, he continues to seek serenity in the mountains, deserts and canyons of the American landscape.
Always forward, never backing down. The reverse American flag is a symbol of honor, courage and respect: a tradition that we honor here at Forge Overland. We are the stewards of this great land, and the patriots that guard it. We honor those who have sacrificed in the name of freedom and the American Dream.
