Nick is a Colorado-based Brit–originally from Sunderland–and a Chartered Engineer and technologist who became a devotee of the worlds deserts. He’s lived in half a dozen countries and traveled to over 70. Over the last 15 years he’s extensively traveled in the Sahara and Rub’ al Khali, with much practical knowledge of remote solo desert travel.
Elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2002, Nick has delighted in sharing his experience with many expedition groups, individuals and families planning remote journeys.
He is a member of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Explorers Club and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts. As a technologist, Nick has a particular interest in communications technology and automation, the antithesis of the simple diesel Land Rovers he loves.
Graham Jackson was born in Lesotho in Southern Africa. He grew up racing motorcycles off-road, as well as helping his father design, build and race off-road buggies. At age 10, Graham completed his first safari across the Kalahari in a Range Rover with his family. That trip planted the seed for Graham’s lifelong obsession with deserts. In 2004, he and his wife completed a 30,000-mile overland adventure from London to Cape Town, which included crossing both the Sahara and the Kalahari deserts.
Graham has guided expeditions in Africa, the American West, Mexico and Central America, and trains US Special Forces on desert operations with a focus on North Africa. A scientist by trade, Graham tries to combine his interest in the natural world, his passion for overlanding and his love of things mechanical. Currently, Graham is the Director of Training for Overland Expo, a member of the Explorers Club, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a member of the Field guides Association of Southern Africa.
Jim is a retired Fire Fighter/Paramedic based out of Phoenix, AZ. He and his teammate represented the USA on the 1992 Camel Trophy in Guyana, finishing 2nd overall and bringing home the “Team Spirit” award.

As a result, Jim was asked to assist with the selection and training of every US team from 1993-1998. These experiences led Jim to develop a working relationship with Land Rover North America, Wild Trackers and the creation of his own company, MyQuest Adventures, in which he provides driving instruction and emergency medical support while on events.
Over the past 27 years, Jim has worked on Vehicle based events in 20 different countries on 5 continents.

Along with Emergency Vehicle Operations Instructor, Paramedic, Wilderness Paramedic, Jim also is certified as a City & Guilds NPTC Off-Road Assessor.
Another passion of Jim’s is endurance racing. He has competed in two full Ironman races, dozens of half and shorter distance triathlons, and many mountain bike races.
Expedition Leadership, 4×4 Driving and Off-Roading are genre synonymous with Scotsman Duncan Barbour who has carved an impressive 25-year career as a world-leading exponent in these fields and built a reputation that is second-to-none.

From internationally acclaimed events such as Camel Trophy and Overland Expo and the launch of his specialist company BATT (Barbour All-Terrain Tracking) Duncan’s extraordinary skills-set have been sought from a wide diversity of industry, from Motor Manufacturer product launches and incentive expeditions for Land Rover, Jeep, Mercedes and Lexus, to Formula One Teams and the big screen of the Motion Picture Industry, his film credits the envy of many a Hollywood A-Lister.
