Hi, my name is Ryan!

Location: Northwest Indiana
Rig: 2016 F150 2.7l ecoboost
Experience: Novice. I've always had a fascination with overlanding and offroading which stemmed from seeing old videos of camel trophy trucks when I was a kid. Slowly building up my rig and getting out when I have the time. Looking forward to being part of the community!
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. Be sure to check out the vehicle build threads, there you can find lots of ideas to incorporate into your own build.
Thanks for the heads up!

Recently retired and looking forward to some adventure. Wife and I are the original proud owners of a 1994 Wrangler and a 2020 Gladiator from sunny Florida. The Gladiator is still getting prepped for overlanding and we can’t wait to get out.
Hello Bob, welcome from Phoenix, we love pics of rigs.

Hello all! Excited to join the community! Not yet full hardcore overlander, rocking a Ram 1500, but just paid for and am awaiting my military surplus m1102 trailer to fill my and my sons off grid camping and fishing machine! We have a lot of great public lands here in AZ and 33" tires get my Ram everywhere we need to go. Moving forward our trailer or cargo space will not be the limiting factor. I have masive delusions of grandure when it comes to what this trailer will be. but reality will hopefully be a safe, sound and agile mobile campsite by summer. Excited to learn from you vet overlanders!~

Never been Overlanding but have travelled widely, maybe I can change that in 2021 with my Discovery 2.
Got some of the gear, lots to learn! This seems the best way!!
Did a mini road trip when over in the US recently (2019) - Indiana to Montana and back, Yellowstone was awesome
