New to the community. Have a 2020 Rogue AWD .... love camping and looking into doing little bit offloading (limited by vehicle capabilities). Plan is to get a Jeep in about 3 years.

Looking for recommendation for light off-road trails in the North East where I can take my Rogue.

And guidance on what I can do to make it little bit more off-road capable (2inch lift kits is on my list, Rogue has a native 8inch clearance).

Based out of NJ

Hello everyone. New to overlanding but hoping to take some winter trips since I'm not a fan of the East Texas heat. I have a 2000 xj and my wife has a 2010 Toyota Rav4.

Hello OB, I'm a new member from Orange County, CA. New to "Overlanding", but have been primitive camping my whole life along the Baja peninsula, the southern Cal deserts and the 395 corridor. The forum has been a great resource for me to up my game from primitive camping to overlanding. So many new destinations to explore and great ideas on how to make the experience more enjoyable. Looking forward to learning more and hopefully meeting some of you folks out on the trail.

Hello,
I am a new member from Arkansas. My name is Bryan Robinson. My wife and I have always loved camping, but just upgraded to an Off Grid Trailer. This past weekend was our first trip with it. Absolutely love it, can't wait for the adventures ahead. Really glad I found this community, I have so many questions.

Welcome from Georgetown. We used to live in Helotes long ago. Like when 1604 west was a 2 lane road ago. If you're ever in the area, we'd enjoy meeting you at one of our monthly meets.

Awesome! I’ll check with the wife to see if we’re available. Haven’t been up towards round rock in a long time!

Hello everyone! My name is Carolyn, I am a very new overlander from New Mexico. My rig is a 2018 Toyota Tundra double cab. It is still entirely stock with the exception of the tires which I have upgraded to BFG ko2’s. I’ve done several small trips over this last year but look forward to getting into some more technical stuff as time goes on.View attachment 197200

Hello Everyone!

I hope I am doing this correctly!? We just joined OB our number is 27195. We are very excited to be a part of the community. We love overland camping and exploring wilderness trails. We run a 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2. We use it as a dedicated trail rig and so far we have almost 9k of adventure miles on the odo. We love nature, T.R.E.A.D. Lightly and really enjoy the opportunity overlanding gives us to spend time as a family (except Fudge, our bulldog, he hates camping, LOL). We live north of Atlanta, GA so we spend most of our time in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Pisgah National Forest and Cherokee National Forest. We love the mountains and camping up above the bugs and humidity. We run slow paced, stop at waterfalls, eat well (not OVRLNDX / Mama Bear well but we try) and are not looking to break our rig. We are always looking for groups to go with on adventures and other couples and families to team up with on smaller runs. I am an old Eagle Scout so being prepared comes with my background. Really looking forward to all the community has to offer and hoping to provide some value to other members along the way! We look forward to seeing you all out on the trails! - Mike and Beth
Hello Mike, welcome to the OB community. Nice looking set up. Looks like to me you have things pretty well figured out.
