Helloooo all! I'm Nick from Virginia. Originally from up north. Grew up hiking, fishing, tapping trees for maple syrup, and riding four wheelers. Unfortunately I lost touch with all that but hoping to get back in to that, along with something new in a bit of adventure in overlanding.

21 Silverado 1500, working on getting a lift and tires for off road adventures, a good truck rack for carrying supplies, tent, etc. And who knows what else from there. Always open to suggestions or tips for accessories, trails, camp sites or anything!

Hey all , been a couple months since I got on here, I don’t remember if I’ve posted yet or not... But I’m Chris, I‘m in Castle Rock, CO. I have an 03 Toyota Sequoia (there is 5 of us), but I also have an 1981 Toyota Trekker that I am building. We just got back from a great trip over Medano Pass here in Colorado and spend some days at the Sand Dunes. That is a great road, and the Dunes are worth some time.

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.
Hey Sergio

Tacomas are pretty rad….I’m heavily biased. I am the Bay Area member rep and I can help connect you to meet ups that are happening near you. In Pleasanton CA there is a meet up on the second Sunday’s of the month and it has a great regular turn out and active. The Tri-Valley (Pleasanton) group has 2021 all planned out and you can see the plan under the second post in our thread. We’ve got a meet up THIS SUNDAY!

Below is a link to the meet up page and thread with information.

This is the regular meet up info:

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!
Hi Semisi

Hello everyone!
My rig is a 2005 F-150 (2WD) that is my daily driver and overland rig. I’m from Phoenix Arizona. This is a project I’ve been working on for about two years and have gotten so much out of it. Adventure and exploring is something I love to do and this community fuels that so much. I’ve been a member for about a year and this is my first post so lmk if you have any questions about the rig!

Good afternoon from Memphis TN. this is Kevin - long time outdoor lover. Hiking, camping, etc. car camping, remote back roads and off road to a limited extent. No real rock climbing - never connected the "overland" phrase with this hobby. Lived out west for a long time and I miss the wide open spaces of AZ, CO, UT, NM etc. Now exploring the North East (recently eastern Canada - NB, Nova Scotia etc) and obviously the eastern TN / VA / WVA area.

Drive a 2020 ram 1500 - with homemade camp kitchen etc. and my "weekend hike" bag for me and the dog. Just upgraded to a rack and RTT for longer trips down the road.

Thanks in advance for the support I'll get from this group - fabulous forum.

Best,
KM

Hello everyone! I live in Chesapeake Virginia and am hoping to get out and about with the family. Currently have a 94 E250 that I hope to be a beast overlanding van. It’s a work in progress! In reality my daily driver pickup is the viable and reliable rig for now. I’m looking for an outdoor adventure my family can enjoy. I was born and raised in Alaska and lived for 8 years in Colorado. Lots of experience overlanding “although we didn’t call it that” but have not done it in years. I love the outdoors and since my area isn’t really that great for hiking and camping, I figure making adventure travel a part of our life is a great option. I look forward to meeting some of you and sharing in an adventure or 3.

Hey Chris ! Welcome to the community, we have a fairly active community through out he state. I'm really excited to see what you do with that trekker! Haven't yet made my way out to medano pass or gsdnp but I've heard it's quite something. Look forward to seeing you out on trail or at camp !

If you get a chance come say hi in the rocky mountain regional threads !
