John! How you been? When are we going to hit some trails again?

Yesterday afternoon I ran into the couple in the green JK that we met on the trail above Copper City, the ones that told us the trail was blocked. Apparently the guy is a high school friend of one of my friends... small world.

Hello all excited to join and learn more. My name is Bill I live in Mesa, AZ. Have a 2019 Ford Raptor, I am somewhat of a rookie but have been working on a build since about June. Kids are grown and we were more of a sports family but my adult son has got into the outdoors and I have come along for the ride. Actually probably more of an obsession look forward to learning more and finding awesome routes. A few pics below

I’m late to the party! I’ve been into camping and over landing for a few years now, but I’m just now joining here. My name is Brandon, and I go by @overlandmammal on Instagram. I’ve got a 2018 Duramax ZR2 and I couldn’t be happier with it. After owning a tepui softshell tent a few years ago, I’ve finally pulled the trigger on a Falcon XL by Roofnest after researching options for years. I picked it due to already owning a Leitner ACS, and it’s similar mounting system; it’s a match! Grabbing this nest now felt like the right time, since getting away for a few days at a time felt like the only way I could pacify my itch to travel due to obvious current circumstances. I’m out of Austin, constantly river running with my girlfriend and our 5 dogs, and I’m excited to find and connect with others near me!

New guy Neil here.

I've been overlanding since the late 80s but it wasn't called that then. My new rig, 2021 4runner will be my first dedicated overland vehicle.

I've done a couple of mods already, ie: pulled down the armrest in the back, adjusted the seat and added a molle panel for the driver seat. Other than that its bone stock.

In going to drive it that way for awhile before doing anything major. Figure out what it can do before making it better.

In in the east valley of Arizona.

Hello, my name is Tim, I grew up camping and adventuring but like many others, life got in the way of adventures that didn’t involve children or work. now I am older and ready to travel and adventure again and I think overlanding will be a lot of fun.

I live in rural Kansas.
My vehicle is a 2010 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad 4x4 (several new upgrades coming soon)
Experience: avid off-roader/camper in my younger days. Looking forward to new overlanding adventures soon.

Dustin my friend. Good to hear from you! So cool about the Copper City guy.. Chris and I went back to the same trail a week later but we only went as far as the mine. It was just us, so didn't what to chance it. We camped at Granite lake which was supper cool. And yes!! We need to meet up again and do some trails.

Cheers!!

Hello Neil (@HalfMoon ), welcome from Oklahoma.
Kent already covered my typical links so I will just add that pre-pandemic we had monthly meet ups around Tucson and Phoenix, those have been suspended but keep an eye out for updates.
Also, Overland Expo West will be May 14th-16th and held in Flagstaff and would be a great event to get some build ideas and look at gear.
Let me know if you have any questions.
