New to overlanding since May 2018 but completely all in! We’re so excited about this new chapter in our lives and really looking forward to getting out in the middle of it all! We've been building our rig ever since we got it and I'm running out of things to bolt on!! Been on several short trips, gotten ourselves into some pretty decent trouble, and came out smelling like a rose. Loving this life and we're so impressed with this community. We're planning a big trip in the next 18 months to drive from So Cal to the Northern tip of Alaska, back down and half way across Canada, down the Continental Divide to Mexico, on down through Central America (Yikes!), all the way down through South American through Columbia, Peru, Chile, parts of Argentina, and end our trip in Patagonia. Our 80 is being built to handle the excursion. Can't wait for all the trips in between and meeting some of you along the way!!
