Hello Everyone. I'm Ryan. My wife and I recently purchased a GX470 to dip our toes into overloading. We are just getting started. We both like photography and video production on a hobby level and look forward to combining these hobbies with overloading in the great outdoors. We are in the northern Utah area near Salt Lake City.

The GX. Still stock for now...

We also have a Ford Bronco on order and are excited for that to come.
Welcome to Overland Bound Ryan
The 470 is a very capable platform that can be modded very easily to get further off road. And thee Bronco, well I can only think that it will be great.

Hi everyone,
My name is Craig and I am from Anchorage Alaska. Been into overlanding for around 5 years now as a way to get out and explore the state with my family (now 13 and twin 10year olds) started with my personal rig a 2000 landcruiser and now starting up a side gig renting overland vehicles in Alaska as Alaska Overlander with two new 4runners fully kitted out with everything you need and an Valiant expedition trailer. Check us out at www.alaskaoverlander.com

Love this activity and our family has so many memories that we will keep with us.

Level? Constantly learning and exploring.

Looking forward to seeing you on the trail

Hi!
My name is Kelli and I’m from Central Pennsylvania (between Harrisburg/State College).
I drive a 2014 VW Touareg.
We’re campers and backpackers but brand spanking new to over landing - I hadn’t even heard over that word until 2 weeks ago when we binge watched Lifestyle Overland.

Hi all,
I'm Lance but my friends call me Ledet. I have done mostly hiking and motorcycle camping in the past with a luv for the outdoors. I am from the south east tip of Louisiana about 60 miles from the Gulf. I just bought a 2021 TRD 4Runner that I had outfitted with a stage 2 Icon suspension, Method wheels -12, and smittybilt RTT. My next purchase will be new bumpers with winch set up. Glad to be on board with a large group of people with the same interest in mind. My plans are to do more overlanding in primitive areas.overlander2.jpg overlander.jpg

Howdy!
New to overlanding but super excited to get involved with some adventures with my 2 dogs. My wheels are a 2008 Tacoma. Built a bed with drawers in the canopy last summer. Slowly stocking my camping gear and tricking out my stealth camping bedroom as I learn what is relevant and what is not. Located in beautiful British Columbia Canada

Name is Sonny and I've spent many years Adventure Touring on big BMW GS's, before the term Overlanding ever became mainstream. I also use to throw my camping gear in my truck and head out into the forest way before I starting ADV'ing on bikes. I wanted to build an OL rig with my Chevy 1500, but decided to go with the Power Wagon instead. Had a hard time convincing my wife, but now she is completely on board! Hoping to hook up with some like minded peeps here in the southern rockies.

Hi Everyone, I’m Andrew in Southern California.

I have a 2016 Toyota Tacoma with just a few off-road modifications.

I am relatively new to Overlanding, but have enjoyed the trips I’ve been on recently. I’m fairly experienced in camping and other outdoor adventures, and the vehicle part has been a fun add-on.

Thanks for having me as part of the community!
