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!

Dave here! Located in the Raleigh NC area. Brand new to Overlanding. I have been wanting to get into it for years. Just picked up a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Let the mods begin.

I am a fabricator of sorts and I'd like to think I am pretty inventive too. I am looking forward to designing some of my own mods and gear.

Howdy all.
My name is Jon Plouffe and I am in Damascus, Oregon. I have a 2021 Taco TRD Off Road. When it comes to overlanding, I am a novice. I am looking forward to crawling through these forums and soaking up knowledge.

Cheers!

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @jcgraves3 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.

Bryan & Susan here: We live in southern Arizona, just south of Tucson. While in years past we had a highly modified 4Runner and did a lot of off-road and SAR in the Mojave, age & health have slowed me down some. We've got a Ram 3500 SRW 4x4 with a Lance camper that, so far, has handled everything we've asked it to do. Love exploring still and very much into photography/videography. We may be too tame for most on this forum but we're still game!

Hello
I just joined and already feel I could spend a lot of time here. I am Chris, I live in the metro detroit Michigan area. Back in the day I and my friends used to do a lot of four wheeling around lower and upper Michigan. Back then I drove a pretty nice 1976 F250.
Happy to be getting back into it with my son. We have been working on our new rigs over the past six months. Now I am running a 2012 Nissan Pathfinder. My son is running a 2014 Xterra. We have put on 2” lifts, 32” tires, bumper modifications, on board air, lights and winches? Great way to spend time and money with my son.
I have enjoyed reading forums. Can’t wait to get out and do some over-landing.
Chris

Absolutely! The road/train trip to Churchill will require careful preparation -- more so than any other overlanding expedition here in Canada (in comparison to the Dempster Highway, for instance). Having said that, I was heading to Tuktoyaktuk this year, but Covid changed that. I am now planning it for 2021 (as an OB event -- already posted). Hope we will be done with this Covid thing by the time we reach summer of 2021. If so, and you are heading this way, drop me a line. Perhaps you and your wife may even want to join the epic adventure to Tuktoyaktuk :tonguewink:

Stay safe, and journey on.
Hey Kent, it's Vennak 25153. Ive just been thinkin about he trip you were planning on taking to Tuktoyatuk.I've been thinking about quite a bit. How are the plannings coming along? How many memebers do ypu have jpining you in this epic aventure so far? Vennak

Hello, my name is Joshua Parker. I live in Riverside, California. Originally from Carlotta ,California. My family and I enjoy camping and traveling as much as possible. Our rig is a heavy/long 2021 Ram 2500 megacab diesel. I can off-road too much, but I can tow just about anything. Will be upgrading suspension as soon as parts are available. Looking forward to meeting new fellow travelers and learning as much as I can.

Hello Gregory, welcome from Phoenix, I would suggest you wipe your actual address from the site and go with just your city.
I use ICS-FAB.com dash mount for my solutions, but I have a 4Runner.
