Last fall, I struck a deal to buy an Overlander from one of our Aussie members (Andrew Burrows). Andrew was great to work with and dropped off the Jeep at the Port of Brisbane on December 10th. Since then, it has traveled over an estimated 20,000 miles and had a 2-week layover in Japan. Take a look. Blue pins are the start and end of the journey. Purple pins are ports, the greens are the route, and red is the US landing point.

The Overlander finally landed in Freeport, TX last Monday and cleared customs by the end of the week. Right now, it's waiting for a truck/trailer to bring it up to Dallas. More updates to come.

Oh yeah, and I would never forget: Without pics, it never happened! Pictures from the Port of Brisbane.

Awesome. As an outsider, just curious what kind of shipping costs and logistics are involved with such a transaction. I cant imagine this is a very easy process.

Is it still in Freeport? Just knowing an Overlander is that close to me is driving me crazy. Would love to get a change to look at it in person.

That is ridiculously cool! I have friends and family near you in Dallas and I'm actually going in a month or so to buy a vehicle (not a Jeep). I'm sick of the rust so I'm going to buy something down there. If you have any interest in a meet up, shoot me a pm. I would love to see that thing in person.

Started a write-up of the transportation angle but taking longer than expected. Will be worth the read and should post tonight. Overall, transportation process has gone smoother than expected. Thanks for the compliments.
