Hello all!

My name is Tristan.
-Eastern NC
-I drive a 2005 Silverado 4wd single cab long bed
-I have some off-road experience mostly muddy trails in southern Florida and beaches in Hawaii. I am new to the rocky terrain in NC, but it is nice to learn new driving tactics. The car camping aspect is the newer to me part. I am a novice when it comes to camping specific gear!
Welcome to the OB crew, to get started on your overlanding journey, head over to the Boot Camp threads here in the forums, there is a lot of useful information on almost every aspect of overlanding, be sure to ask questions, our experienced overlanders here are happy to answer questions and offer you advice.

Glad to be a part of this awesome community. My wife and I have been kitting out our vehicle in hopes to travel this amazing continent of ours (North America).

We are located in the Tacoma, WA area and have so many amazing places to explore right here in our backyard. I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road that I've kitted out with suspension, armor and electrical upgrades to ensure we are capable of traversing the back country roads throughout this continent. I can't wait to share with everyone my experiences as well as learn new things from everyone here.

Hi all,

New to this site but looking forward to getting to know some of the members. I’m located in the SF Bay Area about half way between SF and San Jose.

I grew up riding dirt bikes and ATVs, and have done lots of camping. But I recently bought a 2002 Toyota 4Runner to start my new overlanding hobby. Lifted it with OME coils + Bilstein shocks, running 33s. Lots of little projects still to do, but I’m ready to start hitting the trails.

Cheers!

Hey everyone, my name is Mike.
Location: Buffalo Grove, IL
Rig: 2019 4Runner SR5
Experience: Novice

Nature and adventure are in my blood thanks to my dad. I just bought the 4Runner six months ago without ever hearing about Overlanding and now kinda wish I got one of the TRD trims, oh well.
After watching some videos from Wanderlost Overland and Revere Overland I am absolutely hooked! Overlanding has all the components that are perfect for me: road tripping, adventure, nature, and solitude.

Space around me where my soul can breathe
I've got body that my mind can leave
Nothing else matters, I don't care what I miss
Company's okay
Solitude is bliss

Hey my name is Ty! I’m building a 2016 3.5l f-150. I’m from Oregon City, OR. My overland experience has basically been from finding new and barely traveled roads, streams, lakes, and rivers for mainly fishing purposes

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @Ubiety is your closest member representative.
To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).
Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.
Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.
Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.
Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.
Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.
Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.
Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.
