Hi all, my name is Bill, and I'm from the Portland, OR metro area. I do a lot of Oregon exploring (here's a short video I made of trip last summer), and am hoping to do the WABDR in the next couple years.

Finally took the plunge after lurking around this forum for a while and ordered my membership. It just arrived in the mail today! Looking forward to sharing my adventures with everyone! I’m hailing from Ontario Canada and while there aren’t many marked trails/campsites already on this forum I hope to be the one to change that!

Hello everyone. My name is Matt, and I live in Central Ohio. I own 2021 Jeep Gladiator that I am setting up for some Overland adventures. Glad to join the community and I look forward to getting to know some new people!

I have a lot of camping and 4x4 experience. Sand and mud mostly, never tried rocks.
Welcome to Overland Bound Matt
I am also starting my Gladiator build.

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @jcgraves3 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.

Hi everyone,

I'm Steve or Ringo if you want to use my nickname.

I run a TD5 DC Defender 2003 which has seen many incarnations over the almost 15 years I've owned it.

Experience wise I've done green laning, visited Wales to sample the mountains etc, travelled to France in my Defender for battlefield trips amongst other things.
