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.

Hello Brent
Welcome to Overland Bound
My name is Rich I am your US Southwest member representative for Arizona
Here are some helpful links to get you started
U.S. SouthWest (AZ NM TX OK)
Overland Bound Meetups
For finding trials I like trailsoffroad.com their rating system is spot on as far as difficulty of a specific trail.
Gaia.com for most navigation maps.
The best part about this community is we learn from each other.
Hi Rich, thanks fore the welcome. I look forward to leaning more.

It's that time again. Join in on the monthly Inland Northwest conference call every 3rd Sunday at 7:30 PST. Everyone is invited. This month we will be sharing trip plans and making Rally Points. This is the best way to meet new people and to not go out on the trail alone. Details on how to call and log in are here in this Rally Point. This is both a call and online event.

Hello all!

Happy to be a member. Wife and I are long time backpacker and hikers. I enjoy flying and sailing; now with our rig nearly complete, we are ready to cover more ground via overlanding.

Looking forward to these forums to learn more and hopefully meet up with members along the way.

We are split based between Seattle and Coeur D’Alene.

Next steps in our novice state is to work out the gear for a few days in May before we hit the Hungry Horse or Flathead trails in Montana in June.

Rig: 2019 F-350 on a BDS 6” lift with 38” Grapplers and a 2020 Off Grid Trailer Expedition 2.0. Bumpers and winch are the next upgrades and an ICOM ic-705 for QRP Ham Coms

Cheers!
