The Afro Overlander


Daniel Cooke is a Colorado native who loves being outdoors and is willing to camp in any weather. Since 2020, he has been overlanding and tent camping in his Toyota 4Runner, through Colorado’s snowy winters and warm summers in the fresh mountain air. While his journey with the 4Runner ended in late 2021, Daniel is building out a new overland rig from a 1989 Mitsubishi Fuso Canter 4WD box truck. Once finished, he’ll be setting out on the road with his pup and adventure buddy, Olive.
