Exploring Newfoundland with Overland Pioneers

Newfoundland, Canada is an overlander's dream destination. After 6 months of mapping and planning, Jeremiah from Overland Pioneers spent 3 weeks travelling to some of the most beautiful places throughout the humble Canadian Province, packing in as much adventure as possible.

REDARC are proud to have been a sponsor on this adventure so we caught up with Jeremiah to find out how they used the power of REDARC to explore the Great North. Here is what he said: 

What was your favorite part of the 3 week expedition?

Definitely the wildlife. Every coastal camp spot we had we had large playful visitors. The humpback whales were everywhere. It was more surprising how loud their tail and flipper slaps were for sometimes a mile away.

What were the challenges you faced on the journey?

One was planning. You don’t want to miss anything with the time you have but we also didn’t want to go to the stereotypical tourist areas. The other was my wife had a gallbladder attach (since diagnosed) and we were a 4 hr life flight away from a major ER. Luckily there was a group of traveling retired doctors who was able to help!

What REDARC Products did you have on board?

Oh man! We have the essentials. First is the TowPro Elite to keep our XVenture XV3 operating on and offroad properly. In the trailer charging our 100ah battery is the BCDC1225d charge controller. 

In our Gladiator we have the full REDARC Rouge and Manager30 system charging our 300ah battery. It’s the powerhouse of our setup managing everything from camera and drone batteries, 1500w inverter (the most important piece of gear, powered the wife’s heating blanket), lights, fridge and other accessories.

What advice would you give to others planning a journey to Newfoundland?

There are a lot of Newfoundland Travel Facebook groups where you can see some amazing post on. Start there. We rely on locals to get some of our most amazing out of the way camp spots. Also spend a lot of time making a general route first using google maps to see how long everywhere you want to go would take to drive. (We like to spend at most 4-5 hrs drive time a day in a vehicle. You don’t want to spend your whole trip looking through a windshield. Then refine your maps on an app like GAIA GPS to really get off the beaten path. 


Lastly don’t let planning every detail stop you from going. Part of the fun is the mystery. Allow time in each day to deviate. Usually leads to some amazing experiences!
