Hey, I hear you about the impressive preparedness and reliability of the vehicles at the event. But, I can’t help but wonder if this sets a really daunting standard for overlanding gear. Are others going to feel pressured to match up? It’s great that Isuzu is leading the way, but I hope it doesn’t make things too competitive for everyone else.
