Hello Everyone!

Location: Chesterfield, VA
Rig: Still looking
Experience: Camping, hiking, military

Why am I here? I want to get out and see the world beyond staring at a computer screen. I’d like to start having some memorable adventures with my wife and kids and feel that overlanding may be just the thing.
Hello Dave, welcome to the OB community, this is a great way to get out and enjoy. Thanks for your service.

Hello Overland bound community.... My name is Harold and my wife is Katrina.
We are in Texas near Houston. Our rig is a 2015 Jeep Wrangler JKU and the trailer is a modified 2014 Okie Trailer
We are fairly new to overlanding. Love to camp and love off road travels, so figure its a good mix to get started.

Hi Folks, just registered for the site today. Located in Hartland, CT, just to the left of the notch on the northern border with MA. Looking to learn about the Overland hobby and meet some folks. I'm an advanced amateur photographer interested in some beginner, tent camping, excursions here in the northeast to start off.

Have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, mostly stock at this point. But I do like to venture off the beaten path without really abusing it (still my daily driver).

Hi all,
Tim & Suz here from Saskatoon Canada! Glad to be a part of this community. We’ve been “overlanding” for two year but have been avid outdoors people forever... We love the life, the freedom and the new friendships that are forged from meeting like minded people.
We’re currently working on our rig, I don’t think this will ever stop!!! But so much fun.
Our platform is a Gen 5 4Runner currently in mod mode. Just waiting for the suspension and rear bumper to show up. I’m sooooo impatient...
So far we’ve put on a full roof rack, front winch bumper and winch, also rock sliders. Over the last few weeks we’ve built and installed a drawer system and fridge slide.
Looking forward to the Can/US boarder opening again. We hand to cancel our trip last year down to Utah and Arizona due to the “Vid”.

Hey all Wonderland_Recon here, aka Chad & Keri from Magnolia, Texas. We are new to Overlanding and we recently picked up a new 2021 Jeep JLUR Eco Diesel as the foundation for our Overland build. We are hoping to connect with other Overlanding folks that we can learn from and enjoy exploring the greater USA with.

Long time wheeler here from BC Canada. New to the whole overlanding concept, but have spent my entire life in the woods and mountains exploring, camping, and just enjoying being outdoors.

My current rig is a 1998 Durango (5.9L) with too many mods to list, but it's locked, lifted, and gets me pretty much anywhere I point it.

My plan is to retire in 7 years and spend the last of my healthy time doing the full-time overlanding thing. I look forward to learning from you all, and maybe contributing a nugget here and there myself.

Thanks for the insight Kent! You guys have an awesome setup here and I love the Tread Lightly course you guys have. Our 11 year old will love this too. At this point we are not sure who is more excited about the Overlanding adventures to come.

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

New to overland by concept but not new to adventure seeking. In my teen years I drove a mini-van many places an overlanding rig has never gone. Now i have grown up and been responsible im looking to get back into adventure and explore many parts of the land. just here in Utah are thousands of miles to explore. I hope to make new friends, that are family friendly explorers to explore with.

Location: Utah - in the midst of overland country
Rig: 2006 Toyota Sequoia
Experience: Back Country Driving, River Running, Backpacking, Scouting.

Howdy y'all,
I'm AJ and I've got a 18' tacoma trdor with a few goodies and is my daily driver. I will be rocking a 23zero roof top tent and building the shell out as we go on what we need.
Build out:
18' Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road
Nitro Gears 5.29
33x12.5 General X3
Icon RXT full leaf pack
Bilstein 5100s all around
OME HD springs up front
SSO slim bumper (putting together "stage 2" on the front bumper)
Barx built fabrication sliders (central ohio small fab shop that custom made the sliders, pending coating and install)
At the Helm high clearance rear bumper w/tire carrier
Leer bed shell
OEM+ Audio upgrade (highly recommend!)
And lastly OVtuned (or VFtune as they go by now)

Getting setup to explore more as tent camping has gotten more hassle. Hoping to stay dry now as with tent camping on the ground I couldn't keep dry for the life of me... and the light suppression tech on the 23zero setups is highly appealing!
Nice whip!...I have a 2016 TRD Offroad in Quicksand too....mines a manual....
