How to Help

There are lots of ways you can help, from taking a passenger on one of our Ride-Alongs, to telling us about land meetings in your area, to donations to keep our efforts going, and more.

Camping Lab is more than just an importer of high quality roof top tents. Fernando is also an overlander and inovator in the marketplace. He makes a point of attending events around the country to see how his product fairs in a variety of conditions and on a wide range of vehicles and trailers. But what impressed us most about Camping Lab is that they are they only Partner that contacted us out of the blue! That is the level of involvement Camping Lab & Fernando have in the overlanding community. That made it even more interesting to place the tent on Mike’s FJ Cruiser so that it could travel far north through Utah, Wyoming and Montana then into Canada before our Continental Divide Expedition even started. Watch for a complete writeup and comparison to other RTT’s very soon.

We would like to thank Charles Wells and Fun Treks for helping us find those amazing things in the back country with their guides of Colorado, Arizona and Moab. Their spiral bound mid-sized books are really the way to go since they are easy to use and full of the detail you need when exploring. We have been big fans of the Arizona book for quite a while now and can’t wait to try out the Colorado & Moab book. You can buy direct from them at

Partner – AZFJ

AZFJ is an Arizona based group of Toyota FJ Cruiser owners who bill themselves as a non-club club so feel free to join them as a non-member member. They have been a part of Disabled Explorers as a non-club and as non-members, from driving on our Ride-Alongs to helping with parts installation on our FJ Cruiser project. We look forward to many more years of help from this non-group.Find out more at

Partner – Linda J and Pepper

Linda J. and her pup Pepper deserve a very special place in the Disabled Explorers history books. They were the first to donate using Paypal and have been strong supporters ever since. Linda is a member of Expedition PortalĂ­s forums where she post under the name suntinez. You can follow the adventures of Linda and Pepper in her Toyota Tundra with a Flip-pack shell that is just amazing as seen in the picture above.
