Hello,

I have been into camping my entire life and also have been into off roading. Now that my kids are old enough I am combining the two.

We moved from PA to Colorado about 3 years ago and this past summer hit the trails and it has been awesome.

Looking for some like minded people in Colorado who can give some pointers on what trails are great for over landing here.

Hello everyone...
I live in the Tucson, AZ area. I have a 2015 Jeep JKU Rubicon that I initially started wanting to build as a rock crawler, but decided I didn't like the idea of having to smash it up to be "one of the guys". I've had a lot of experience with camping and backpacking as a kid and recently getting back as an Assistant Scoutmaster. Overlanding seems like the next logical step for me and I am excited to learn this aspect of getting back to the outdoors. I can't wait to get out there and keep building my "escape" vehicle as I define my needs for trips.

Hello...new member checking in

View attachment 176927View attachment 176928

- Location: Miami, Fl
- 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Z71 4x4
- Overland Experience: Novice.

I had a Jeep TJ about 10yrs ago and did plenty of mudding in S.FL. and also did my share of rock crawling in N.FL. and GA. The Silverado currently has a leveling kit w/ upgraded UCAs, Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 275/55r20, ARB dual compressor, and Bakflip tonneau cover. Looking to do a BDS 4” Fox coilovers setup soon with rear Deaver leaf spring upgrade. The goal is family camping. My wife and I both love this and we have a 16 month old baby boy and a newborn baby girl that we want to get exploring ASAP.

I’m on here to gain more knowledge...and to get pointers on the Silverado. It seems like there aren’t many in the overland game...

Hey! Ramman Here from central Ma. Wife and I are in the middle of our build and gear gathering for the up coming spring.
We have a 19 ram that we will be traveling with our two young kids. I have a little off road expierence and a little camping exp as well. I know being in MA I don’t have the highest expectations for off highway travel but will be looking to be all over the east coast and North east once we are closer to the end of our build. Hopefully some people are nearby that can help steer us in the right direction.

Hello everyone, excited to be here. Name is Joe from Atco NJ and driving a 2017 JKU Rubicon Hard Rock (Purchased in September 2020) and although I did a bit of wheeling back in the 80's I feel as though I am a novice compared to what I see everyone doing today, my rig is pretty much stock but not for long.View attachment 176794

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!!!

Good morning! I am new to 4-wheeling, and just getting into overlanding. Getting out and off road was something I've been wanting to do, ever since I was a teenager in high school. But, it had to wait until I was 40 before I got into a 4x4. I've started out simple with two group trips into the woods of North Georgia, so far. Recently, I've decided to go all in, and I've got a bed rack ordered and picked up a used RTT from Facebook Marketplace (it needs a little work, but is completely serviceable as-is). I want to start out with a couple of overnighters and hopefully get to the point I can do a trip out to southern Utah. I'm looking forward to learning here!
Hello John, welcome to the OB community. Sounds like you have a good plan in place and are working it well.
