Hey all

New to overlanding in civilian life but did plenty of the Army version lol. Glad to join the team. I live in Tennessee and drive a lifted and partially armored 2017 JGC (work in progress). My wife goes along on trips and she drives a 2019 Cherokee Trailhawk with a lift. Our most recent trip was to the Georgia traverse with our Boxer puppy name Gaia (yes like the gps app). Look forward to meeting some of you.

Good to meet a fellow Army vet. I like the civilian version of overlanding as opposed to the Army version, at least most of the time. I just joined this group myself. I am looking forward to getting on the trail.
Thanks and welcome. Good to meet you too.

Greetings. I’m Ryan. I currently live in the Seattle area. I’m pretty new to over landing but I love hiking, camping and exploring. I currently have 2021 Subaru Crosstrek limited. I got it because it’s great on trails and pretty capable for its class especially with some modifications. It gets me where I need to go. Hoping to turn it into a capable over landing rig so that I can venture out further and explore.

Hello y'all

I am just getting into overlanding. I live in Powder Springs Ga.

I just bought a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with Hemi engine and QDII. Currently I am waiting for the Old Man Emu 2.5" HD lift to come in. I plan to self install the kit so I can get a good idea if there is going to be anything that needs to be fixed before getting on the trails.

I am looking forward to the next adventure.

Hello everyone,

I'm Sergio and I ride around in a Toyota Tacoma. I just bought it recently and have an itching to travel. I live in Livermore, CA, so one of my short term goals is to visit state parks and explore my local OHV parks. I although I've been on many road trips I would consider myself a novice when it comes to outfitting an ohv overland rig. Long term I plan to use the resources in this forum to OUTFIT AND EXPLORE! I hope to grow and learn alongside the community and hope to one day see you out on the trail.

Hi everyone. My name is Wayne, and I am new to overlanding. Coming from the tarmac where I participated in SCCA events in mostly Time-Trials and Autocross. I love the idea of the adventure that overlanding promises. I've always loved Land Rover Discoveries and have, for the past 10 years owned a few but never had the confidence in them to take them off into the mountains. Recently, I decided to buy a mid-sized truck, but I didn't want to by a Tacoma because, well, they are fairly common. Nothing WRONG with that, but I wanted something a *little* different. Not, "Rare", just a little different, so I purchased a 2021 Ford Ranger with the Tremor package.

Now I need to use it. I don't intend to keep her this pretty for long. I have a bed rack and roof rack being built. I am ordering a set of upgraded bumpers that can support a winch, turbo upgrades, and exhaust.

These are pictures from our last trip into the Cascades. The truck (lots of upgrades coming) and my Wife and youngest son, Erica and Jack.

Hey Everyone! Really looking forward to being apart of this community. I’ve been a longtime lurker and have decided to pull the trigger to build out my truck for overlanding and join ya’ll on adventures!

Location: Bay Area, CA

Rig: ‘08 Silverado LT (w/ lots of goodies)

Overlanding Experience Background: I would definitely say novice. I got around 2 or so years on my belt, but only ventured out every so often whilst going to Tahoe, San Diego or Dodge Ridge. My rig may not be the absolute best due to it being 2WD but it’s my first truck/vehicle (had since I got my license back in 2014) and it has outperformed many of my expectations and others while safely performing on trails.

Looking forward to adventuring with you!
