    This, as there is little really rough terrein to be found around here.. Heck finding a muddy road to get some dirt on the tires is hard to find haha.. Anything off pavement I generaly call a trail :P

    For me, here in Europe, is hitting the trails, everything that doesnt bring me from A to B.
    So, here we have to do unpaved, in any form, between Tarmac. But hey, I drove on Tarmac roads in Africa, Rumania, Poland, Spain and more and considered that a trail. They were so bad I was happy when the Tarmac ended.
    For me Rock crawling, bashing through woods, not following a real trail/road, is Off Roading. And I prefer Overlanding.

    According to Overland Journal;
    Overlanding is about exploration, rather than conquering obstacles. While the roads and trails we travel might be rough or technically challenging, they are the means to an end, not the goal itself. The goal is to see and learn about our world, whether on a weekend trip 100 miles from home or a 10,000-mile expedition across another continent.

    So, If I drive a road/trail/path whatever, and Iam enjoying the great outdoors, that is hitting the trails for me.

    Thank you.
