New member OB 16266. Name is James. Live in Austin TX. Long time hiker/backpacker but new to Overlanding. Drive a 2017 4Runner TRD Pro. Hoping to acquire an overland trailer to match with it in the near future.

Previous vehicle was a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. When I was a kid my cousin and I had a 40-something Willys!

Usually do two hikes a year in the Big Bend area and Guadalupe Mountains NP. Also try to get out of state once a year too. Anxious to learn from all of you and share any knowledge I may have.

No mods to the 4Runner . . . . . yet!

Welcome. Our "home" is Austin as well but we are only there about a month out of the year as we travel fulltime. Great to have another Austinite in the mix though!
