Go Explore It was founded in 2014 by Gaylord Thompson and Matt Alfermann with the idea of buying a Sportsmobile, using it when time allowed, and renting it out to other adventurous people when it was just sitting in the driveway.

The term “Overlanding” had not yet been invented! And they had no idea whether the concept would work, but they decided to go for it.  The idea took off, with an overwhelming amount of people lovingly renting the vehicle and enjoying new experiences in the country, and the freedom it gave them. Now with many more vehicles to choose from, and years of experience, the talented staff at Go Explore It are still sharing their passion for the Backcountry with outdoor enthusiasts, new and old.

From Gaylord Thompson, CEO Go Explore It

Meeting our clients, sending them on routes that we create, and helping them experience the great outdoors has been the most fun and rewarding job I have ever had. For most people, it is not every day that you get to create an experience for others that they will remember for the rest of their life, but that is what I get to do every day.

With the support of my amazing wife Crystal and our talented craftsmen and staff, we continue to learn and grow, and to Go Explore It!

Gaylord Thompson, CEO
