Hey y'all new member

Trucker living in Bemidji, MN when I'm not on the road.

Just picked up a 2021 JT as a blank canvas.

Still a novice to overlanding tho I did a lil bit out in Utah a couple summers ago in my old 2011 Liberty.
Not planning a heavy rock crawling build just something that will get me back out in the wild and some cool places that I've yet to be.
It'll be a slow process and progression on the equipment and skills, but I definitely learned I enjoyed bouncing around the middle of nowhere

Hi from Washington State. I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner that's essentially stock, and I'm new to overlanding. In addition to overlanding in general, I'm interested in photographing some of the amazing scenery that overlanders get to see.

Hi all! We're another long time stalker/new member couple. I'm Marla and I just got a 2018 4Runner TRD Premium. My hubby is Tim and he has a 2008 Jeep JK. We've been overlanding for many years, but mostly just day trips and short camping trips with our black lab, Mick. We're want to start meeting people in our area and going for longer trips, so here we are.
Welcome to Overland Bound Marla and Tim

Hey there I’m Seth

I just picked up the keys to a 2021 Ram 2500 75th anniversary Power Wagon. After years of rock crawling Jeep TJs and XJs, I decided to pull the trigger on a full-size rig and try my hand at overlanding. My wife has a 2019 Jeep JL rubicon that we are also in the process of building for overland travel. We are from the Boulder County, Colorado area. When it comes to overland experience I would consider us more on the novice side. We camp very routinely but when it comes to vehicle dependent long distance travel we are open to learning new things. Our goals are to start small and hit all the national parks in the continental US. Looking forward to meeting new people in this community and very excited for the start of new adventures.

Hi! I’m Ro

‘21 Toyota 4R
I’m in San Leandro, Ca
My Experience- 1 day in the mud at OHV park 2 weeks after purchase and 1 week in Baja with Shaffer’s Offroad. Most amazing trip I’m hooked.
I have always had stock vehicles, after a surgery for a blocked carotid artery I decided to change my life. I got a pup named her Coach to get me off the couch, then I traded my 2wd Tacoma for a 4x4 and ordered all kinds of bits and pieces And waited the pandemic lead times to build so I lost 60lbs. The build Completed 1 week before my epic Baja trip where I met several OB members who encouraged me to join ( I was on the fence)so I immediately joined when I returned home. I plan on at least 1 weekend camp/exploration trip per month with the pup, joining meetups and losing more weight!

Hello, I'm Erinn from McKinney, Texas. I had a Jeep TJ then a lot of kids so now I have a 97 40th Land Cruiser. With kids over landing and camping was more practical than rock crawling and beer, so here I am....I have a few trips under my belt and am still baselining my 137K mileage vehicle.

Hi all,

A little late to the party after becoming a member but here goes!

Currently in a '21 Toyota 4Runner ORP from the DFW area. Used to have a TRD Pro but got rid of it to go back to school. First vehicle I had was a 2000 4Runner which was a blast.

Rig pictures attached

I would say I'm not a novice, but definitely not an expert. Had a few mishaps before and still continuing to learn while introducing my wife, family and friends to what Overlanding is.
