Wow this showis great for putting you to sleep.
This has to be the biggest snooze show filmed by millennials or are they gen z-ers? I mean really they over hype everything. They head out in a known area that they will need to ford rivers and creeks,but hey let's not add snorkels to our rigs. I made through about halfway through the first episode,but fell asleep from the boring incessant whining about how the "trail" their forging their way through is changing. Yeah guys your on what we normally call a logging trail if the marker ribbons and cut down trees didn't clue you in. If you like watching over dramatic "acting" in the wilderness with mildly modified rigs then this your show or it's your show if you need to get to bed early.

It gets worse
Honestly what the hell was this??

"Hey guys lets go spend $10000+ to go drive 4 miles of an abandoned road in Alaska and spend all of our time cutting down trees to clear a road for the locals that eill be cleared by the Forest Service in a month anyway."

Honestly, this trip was a bust and this series is boring. Clay and Crew ride to Alaska to conquer a trail they couldnt finish prior. Then they spend the entire show stabding aroubd with chain saws.

Just skip it. Here is the synopsis:
- Lengthy intro showing off all the trucks and unecessary gear
- hit the trail
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- Clay gives a pretentious speech about resources and good decisions
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- backtrack for fuel
- drive 2 miles, cut down 100 trees trucks idling in the background
- backtrack for fuel
- get to the end of the Mackenzie, discover its a guy's farm and the FS Service is coming through in 2 weeks to do exactly what the EO crew did.

Honestly, the first Alaska trip was cool everything else has been steadily declining in quality of content.

This show is one long commercial for Toyota and a few other offroad gear brands. Please make something where you're actually travelling and featuring the journey, like the first Apaska trip you made.

Incredible Overlanding Series
Like all XOverland series this one doesn't disappoint. Incredible cinematography in wild places with good people. Highly recommend this and all their other series on Amazon.

Incredible turn of events!
Highly recommend especially for Toyota enthusiasts, these vehicles are tanks! The cinematography is pristine, and the crew makes a great team. I would definitely want to see them tackle another overland trip if they plan on mapping some more!

Short - but good watch!
I have a love/hate relationship with Croft - hate that the team keeps changing, and the last episode was somewhat rushed. Really looking for a series that focuses less on the miles traveled per day and more that shows more scenery and such. That said, it was worth the time investment to watch.

Great show with awesome content!
This was one of the first overlanding shows I watched and absolutely loved it. Great content and production was awesome. This lead me to the YouTube channel and I’ve now watched almost every video there. Can’t wait for more.

Great Series.
Great series! Clay and the team make some great shows. Makes you want to get out and adventure. If you are remotely attracted to getting out and see our world this is a good watch for you.
