Survive the Zombie Apocalypse with the Global Expedition RV

When I interviewed Greg McHugh at the Overland East Expo in Asheville, NC about his plans to full-time in a brand new Global Expedition Patagonia RV, I told him it looks like he could survive the Zombie Apocalypse!

It's that big and rugged.

Greg is from Bloomfield Hills, MI and has previously been traveling in a Roadtrek Class B motorhome. He had just picked up his new Global Expedition and had brought it to the Overland Expo to get some ideas about off road travel and outfitting his new go-anywhere home.

He gives us a tour of this beautiful behemoth and tells us why he chose this model and where he plans to go.

Global Expedition Vehicles are extreme off road capable RVs, built in Southwestern Missouri and used all over the world for expeditions, exploration, wild game hunts, search and rescue,  research, mobile command centers, mobile labs, survival and more.

They are built on a variety of chassis like Mercedes, Freightliner and Ford, and have redundant marine grade utilities, extended range fuel and water capacities, comfortable sleeping room for four, full kitchen and bath areas, satellite entertainment and communication centers, computer stations,  cargo garages and d 4×4 drives.

Michael Vanelt, the guy who designed the Global Expedition, is an overlander of the first magnitude. He tells how he came up with the concept and some of his adventures as he tried it out aroud the world at

Ou friend Greg McHugh, meanwhile, who you just met in the above video, plans to set out for Alaska in 2018. He and his wife will use the next few months to give his new RV a solid shake down.

So far, he says, he couldn't be happier, Zombies or not.
