Hello, I fairly new to Overlanding, but have been back country hiking and camping for a long time. Decided to give my knees a rest and move into my 2008 Dodge Ram Mega cab. It's much more comfortable when heading out to do landscape photography.

Rig: 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega cab 6.7L Cummins
Area: Portland, OR
Experience: off roading - minimal, unless you call driving a Army APC off road ;-). Camping/backpacking - Lots

Novice to overlanding but I've been camping and riding dirt roads all my life. Looking to getting further off the beaten trail and hit some obstacles. Looking forward to meeting more people and plan some extended adventures.

Hello,

I’ve been active in the outdoors for most of my life (I’m 51), mainly riding my bicycle, but also a lot of hiking and camping. I bought my 2019 Jeep Wrangler JLU Rubicon to allow me to escape the city (I live in the Washington, DC metro area) and give me access to more remote locations. For now, I mainly explore the eastern mountains (VA, WV, PA, NY, NC) and the DE/MD/VA Eastern shore. Eventually I want to point my Jeep west and explore the “real” mountains :-).

My Jeep is mechanically stock, but I have added a winch and some interior items to better organize gear.

Here is the link to the forum calendar and Meet-Up event page: Overland Bound Meetups. Keep an eye out for an East Valley meet up, it was a fairly regular meet up prior to the pandemic so hopefully it will pick up again soon.

Hello, so happy to have come across this group!
I am just outside the Sacramento Ca area
Bought a 1992 Toyota deluxe cab, looking to outfit it for some adventure.
I don't have much experience and am looking to gain as much knowledge from this group as I can.
I did a little bit of off roading where I came from (Hawaii island), but it's been a while. I love vehicles and gear, I love adventure, camping, and road trips. I look forward to combining it all!
