    Alabama Hills - Is there snow?

    Hello All, I'm thinking about hitting up Alabama hills with our not offload travel trailer in tow. It has high clearance with 31's on it but it's 23 long and will rattle to bits on anything real offload. From what I can tell it can go into Alabama Hills just fine. My question is, is there snow...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    I like it a budget builds thread. Maybe a badge or award for the best build under a certain budget would be fun to see what people come up with and do.

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Overlanding to me is just vehicle assisted exploration...car camping. Most of us grew up car camping and it used to be the domain of the poor. Now you need to fight for reservations 6 months out to get a site in any national park and camping gear costs have risen beyond the means of the average...

Is there a...

    Below Snow line trail recommendations near Placerville CA

    Hello All, My brother sold his old 4 runner and got an 80 series land cruiser. We just finished wrenching on it and the lift, tires and wheels are done so it's ready for the trail.

    Need Alabama hills info

    Hi All I am thinking about heading to Alabama hills in the next week. I have a 23 foot travel trailer with decent clearance, 15’ wheels and all terrains.

    New HAM needs help from Old HAM

    Hi all, I’m an OB member who just got his ham license. I’m just waiting for my call sign to hit the database! I however, know nothing about ham radio except the test questions. I’ve been digging through online finding lists of simplex frequencies and local repeaters to program my radio. I...

    Yes I am talking about the condor lookout and I have read that the road up to there is great.

It seems like there are a lot of water crossings on the way out there and I'm...
