Welcome to Overland Now!
We embarked on a one-year tour of North America (US, Canada, Mexico) and Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama) – doing it overland via motorcycles and adventuring all the way! We were on the road beginning April 15, 2012 and returned home June 3rd 2013. We posted pictures of riding, nature’s beauty, man-made wonders and the people who inspire us. Stories about the good, the bad and everything in between are what have moved us most often.
Now we are home. For the past seven months we have reacquainted with friends, family and those things called work and responsibility. Tad back at Microsoft www.microsoft.com/project and Gaila at the Downtown Issaquah Association where she helps throw some great parties. http://www.downtownissaquah.com/ Starting on Feb 17th we have embarked on some exciting new efforts around launching a web-based service and travelers community. MORE NEWS SOON.
For now, if you get a chance stop by one of these events where we will be speaking on a variety of topics based on our travel experience:
Ride West BMW – our awesome home dealership – has invited us in for a much more extensive conversation around the Take-off & Landing processes and relationships while you have 24/7/365 togetherness. Thursday evening March 13th. Should be spicy! http://www.ridewest.com/event_list_detail.asp?ecode=635268
Super excited about the upcoming Overland Expo http://www.overlandexpo.com/ After being featured vehicles these past two years we have now been invited to speak and participate in panels. Can’t wait!!! Get outfitted, get trained, get inspired, get going—the world is waiting . . . Flagstaff, AZ May 16-18, 2014

Are you one of those people who say “someday I’m going to”…? Neither are we. Why wait that long? Once in a while, two people find each other and share a vision; the timing is right and life comes together in a way they never expected.
That would be us. We are Tad Haas and Gaila Gutierrez from Seattle, WA who after giving many of our best years to the corporate world, decided to temporarily hang the careers on a hook and let wanderlust be our guide!
