After 50.000km of shouting at his ZumoXT, Martin realized that he had to change his Navigation game. What was the answer? Drive mode dashboard! In 45 minutes he will tell you what DMD is and how to set it up!
Due to popular demand, Remco will be back for Discover Overland 2023!
Whereas last year he gave a workshop showing everyone how to create a fire in the wild and keep things safe, this year it'll be your turn! Visit his stand, where throughout Friday & Saturday, you'll have the chance to try it yourself, guided by Remco's supervision.
When you know how to create a fire, you can keep yourself warm and you're halfway to a good meal, so it's a great skill to learn.
So you’re up for an overland adventure? Most of us don’t stay in hotels, and camp grounds are scarce. No worries, just see the world as one big sleeping room!
How to find the best spots for wild camping, what equipment to take (and what not!), the pros and cons of different tents, hammocks, bivy bags … Lobke, the author of the book ‘Ik zag twee beren… Wildkamperen’ answers your questions and shares her experience of what it takes to camp wild safely and sensibly.
She travelled solo on her motorbike for 4 years, recently discovered long-distance walking and somehow always finds a way to stop-over at Discover Overland in between moving houses.
Tire repair and replacement can, physically, be one of the hardest things to do. Roel shares tips and tricks for both tube and tubeless repairs while on the road, hoping to take one more obstacle away from starting that life changing journey.
Roel left the Netherlands for a motorcycle journey around the world. He rode his Honda Africa Twin through Europe, Asia, Australia and North- and South America. As a low budget traveler, he performed all of his bike maintenance himself.

Albert has been at Discover Overland since 2017 and is back this year with a new first aid workshop. A practical training.
Albert Oosting discovered the pleasure of motorcycles at an early age. The unpaved paths in the province of Drenthe are familiar territory for him. Professionally, Albert has been providing first aid training for years. Because of his background with the Dutch armed forces, he is an expert in the use of first aid in remote areas: where your medical kit is limited and professional help far away. Since last year he combines his love of motorbikes and travel with his knowledge as first aid trainer through Adventure Shield where he offers a large number of courses.
