Norfolk Overland Explorers

Meet the Team

Welcome to the NOE Team Page,

Below are Members of the NOE that you guys need to know also some details submitted by them


Richard – Chairman & Expeditions Officer

Anything off road has always been my “thing”, on 2 wheels originally. A move to 4 wheels happened due to fatherhood, self-employment and the spectre of responsibility! These days, though, I’ve a choice of 2 or 4 wheels; a CCM GP450, and a Freelander 2. Green-laning has led on to an interest in longer-distance travel, especially after a week in Morocco on a KTM450. I loved NOE’s focus on longer distance travel, and the professional outlook of the club. As a health and safety consultant, I like to enjoy my overlanding knowing it’s been thought through, planned and managed in a meaningful way and to the best of our ability. If I had to capture this capture what we do in a single sentence, it would be “supporting and enabling our members to safely travel far and wide”

Jess – Membership Secretary

Jess_CathedralI currently work in the Leisure and Tourism industry as a receptionist at a caravan site.

Most of the group activities I do are with my partner Kevin (as Above), this is how i got into the Overlanding idea
I dont personally own any 4×4 vehicles however i do enjoy the odd trip out on the lanes.
I enjoy the social events we organise and like to get to know the new members which join us.
A couple of social event we attended as a group night was the African/Caribbean night in Norwich as well as the recent Bowling night we held in Norwich which I and I’m sure the others very much enjoyed.

Guy – General Committee Member

I have been into off roading in 4×4’s for about 8 years + now.
I enjoy Green Lane runs as well as the challenge of fun days.
My love of the outdoors and ‘going off road’ began about 30 years ago with mountain biking and is something I am still interested in today.
I have travelled fairly widely within Europe and also Iceland.
I also put my vehicle to good use assisting the emergency services and providing event support within different voluntary organisations.

Karl – General Committee Member

KarlI have always enjoyed camping and the outdoors but after having had my first taste of overlanding by 4×4 back in 2012 on an expedition to Botswana.
I was extremely keen when I got back to the UK to acquire myself a 4×4 and get out there with my 3 children and 2 dogs camping/off-roading and green laning.
We Have since been to Belgium, Scotland, Wales and many places in England and this year (2016) going to Morocco.
