Hello all! Alski here from Austin, TX. Glad to finally join the group!!

For some reason I can't upload any images, but I drive a White 2020 Toyota 4Runner. I have a nice little bed platform and drawer system so I just sleep in the truck and cook out of the back. Nice and easy.

Have a great day!

Hi All, we are new to the overland community, looking forward to meeting fellow adventures and learning new skills. We are a family of 4 outdoor enthusiasts who have traveled on land and water in Alaska, West Africa, Australia, and many parts of Europe, We are now turning our interest to Overlanding and looking for the right vehicle to get us off-grid. For now, we will be using what we have and hopefully learning some really cool stuff from the community. Happy to have landed here!!!

Hello,

Just picked up a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. Played with it a little bit up at Uwharrie. I really need to get it lifted so I dont scrape the belly AS much as I am now.

1. See: Attached
2. Location: No real general area. I bounce around between Utah, Colorado, Idaho, NM, Montana, Nevada, and SoCal. I currently live out of my vehicle so I'm a nomad.
3. 2016 F150 XL, 2.7L ecoboost, 4x4. Just bought the thing since someone hit my previous rig (Honda Pilot).
4. Novice. I've been living on the road for nearly a year now however.

I am fairly experienced when it comes to backcountry travel on foot however. I love to hike, backpack, and run. I love climbing mountains and jumping into lakes. I love getting deep into the wilderness, finding the end of the road, and then parking the rig and continuing on foot.

I love the wilderness. I love the freedom that comes with it and the solitude. I love the intimacy and deepening my connection with all of life. I love people too however and love the connections I make in the great outdoors. Looking forward to being a part of this community :D
Hello Luchino, welcome to the OB community. I have a question about the rack on the camper shell. Did you buy the shell with the rack already attached or did you have it made? I'm trying to find someplace where I can get a rack like that.
