Hi y’all!
I’m Nate and I’m from South Carolina. I’ve got an 09 F150 that my uncle sold me. It’s only 2wd but I’m curious to see what she can do lol. She’s got the 4.6 V8 with only 26k so she’s basically brand new!

2) Seixa, Portugal
3) Coming soon
4) Novice
Hi Bruno,

Welcome! Where are you located in Portugal? A friend of mine lives there and he is a very experienced overlander. So I can make a contact for your maybe if you like.

And a welcome goes of course also to the many other new members! Enjoy! Always great to see how the community is growing!

Cheers, Bjoern

First day as a member so I thought I would get on here and show everyone the rig. The rig is a 2020 Ford Ranger that I hope to build up to a nice overlanding and camping vehicle for my family. We moved to Western Massachusetts last year from New York so we are new to the area and looking forward to getting involved with this community.

Hi! I'm Robert, from Long Island. I overland, and off-road in a 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring. I love getting out into the middle of nature, often with my photography gear and other equipment I wouldn't want to hike a couple hundred miles (wow, our National Parks are gorgeous!), so, I've been making my Ascent more overland suitable for my progressively more complex or longer adventures. Most of my longer adventures have been out west (I'm especially fond of Moab).

I'm currently working on a seemingly never ending to-do list, such as getting and installing a fridge/freezer, in bumper winch, water tank (roof rail mounted), and figuring out the best storage solutions for all my gear. Always trying to learn more, and find new things that will work for me and the adventures I plan. I'm also a Subaru Ambassador, so, I'm very much into the tenets of Leave No Trace, and packing in<->packing out and am working towards achieving that easier (just got a spare tire mounted trash sack, to start). I could do without trash bags in the car, lol.

Hey everyone, Prof. Yeager (Jason) here from Columbus Ohio. I grew up in rural Ohio, moved to Tennessee for a few years and then back to Ohio. I would say that I have intermediate experience with overlanding and off-roading, since we grew up (and still do) trail riding, hunting, hiking on our family property and state/national parks in Ohio, Tennessee and other parts of the US.

I just picked up a 2019 Toyota Sequoia SR5 as my next build since we have a large family. This isn't my first off-road build, but it is my first build with overlanding in mind so any advice would be great. Glad to meet all of you and happy trails.
C-BUS!!!!...my second home!....If you need any work done on your rig up there hit up D&R Motors. They are really good friends of mine and do a lot of offroad and overland stuff. You'll see when you pull up!....They know Toyotas better than anybody. Tell them I sent you.

Greetings from Front Royal, VA! Just signed up, and am stoked to be part of the community. While an experienced backpacker/hiker/camper, I'm new to the overlanding side of things. During some downtime from work earlier this year, I decided to start mucking with my '18 Forester XT and got bit by the bug. So I went all-in, bought an '05 Sequoia, and started building it out. My wife and I are already planning some routes out for '21 to haul the dogs around the east coast, and out west. Looking forward to learning from others' experience and mistakes...and making a few of my own :grin:

New member here. Live in North Texas, west of Dallas Metroplex, and drive a 1996 Toyota 4runner SR5 4x4 that has been almost entirely rebuilt. I only use it for trips taken and do not daily it, but now am trying to find any excuse to escape on another adventure.

Been lurking for a year or so.
Would like to start traveling with our '08 Jeep JKU and getting off the "beaten path"
Just relocated to the panhandle of Texas after a few years of moving around from including the coast of North Carolina, Guam, and central OH.

Hello everyone.
I've always been into the outdoors, and love adventure. Off roading is a great way to see locations and sights others never get to see.
I have lots of experience on two wheels, and just purchased my 2020 Taco with intentions of learning more about off roading and over landing.
