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.
I'm also in Chesapeake! Another new guy from the same area. We'll have to meet up sometime.

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.
Well, howdy Chris.
Welcome from Arizona!

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!
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!

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!

Hi from Arizona. New to the site and want to learn more. My current vehicle is a 2002 Tacoma. I have used it and built it for trips in my local area. I camp out for a week at a time. Set it up to be comfortable while out exploring.

Hey,

Very new here. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4x4 (QT-1 I think, I don’t engage the 4x4).
Live in Fort Mill SC, just looking for some beginner trails that I could drive and camp over night. Doesn’t have to be crazy, just something to get away and enjoy the woods for a weekend.
