I think overlanding has made me a better person, I don't mean better than anyone else, but "better" as in a better version of myself. I just started roughly a year ago and have noticed a LOT of benefits already. One big benefit I noticed is that I handle discomfort better now. Used to, I would put a lot of work into not being uncomfortable. A few months back, the wife and I were tent camping in Arkansas and around 2-3am, rain hit and flooded the tent. I didn't put the rain guard on and we got soaked. There is nowhere to go, so we climbed into the Tundra and dozed intermittantly until the sun came up. I was tired and my neck hurt, but I got some coffee going and in a short while we were on the road heading to a hiking trail. We had a great day and I realized that something that seemed horrible, really wasn't that bad. As we camp more and run into more "problems", the more I realized that things are really not that big a deal. This has made its way into my everyday way of living and my stress and worry has decreased big time!
