Welcome to Overland Now!

On April 12, 2012 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 returned home June 3rd 2013.  We have posted pictures of riding, nature’s beauty, man-made wonders and the people who inspire us.  Our stories are about the good, the bad and everything in between.


What Are We Up To?


We are back in Seattle area now and have embarked on a new and exciting new effort around  launching a web-based service and community. Building a home-sharing travel network specifically for motorcycles is our passion now.   Check out our site here:  Motostays and join us today!

We are super excited to be presenting at the BMW MOA International Rally this summer  http://bmwmoa.org/TheRally.aspx  and to be connecting with our GS Giants friends  again http://www.gsgiants.com/  in  St. Paul, MN July 24-27, 2014.   Riding from Seattle to St. Paul will be new to us and we can’t wait!

We had a fantastic time at the Overland Exp 2014 http://www.overlandexpo.com/  reuniting with our OX family and meeting a ton of new and interesting people.   We were happy to receive alot of great feedback on our presentations “Take offs and Landings” and “A Trip for two: Relationships on the Road” as well as moderating roundtables on Mexico/Central America travel, and How long term travel changes you.  If you’ve never been, start planning for next year!

Are you one of those people who say “someday I’m going to”…?   So were 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.  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!
