Guess it’s about time for the formal introductions! Hailing from Monmouth Oregon. Currently in the middle of rebuilding and then building up a 1994 Mitsubishi Montero SR. Never rebuilt a motor before so I have some amazing help from a shop over in Bend guiding me (honestly it’s more like me watching and loosening bolts when and where I can). Super excited about this car… been looking for the perfect Montero for 15 years for this build. Hopefully I’ll have a build page here soon!

Have fun!

Hello Benjamin, Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @jcgraves3 is your closest member representative. My best friend lives in Monmouth.

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.

Hello Everyone! My name is Shawn. I have been in the over-landing community for a few years now. Both my wife and I drive jeeps her's a 2016 JKU and I a 2016 JK.

Diane and I enjoy jeeping and have a number of trips we are planning. One is the arctic circle in 2023. I am currently working on my overl-land trailer build "more to follow on that latter" and have a few problems to workout. Hope to see you out on the trails!

Hello everyone.

No pictures unfortunately, but I am in the middle of transforming a 1998 K1500 Suburban into an overlanding/hunting rig. Currently have the entire interior pulled out replacing the carpet with vinyl, recovering the seats with vinyl covers for the seats where the leather was trashed. Also the driver's seat base was busted and had to be welded to get it back solid.

Before the Suburban I was using a 2001 Jeep Xj that I had lifted an d gotten to almost where I wanted. I sold it for the Suburban due to needing more space. I have three kids who are getting to be the age where they want to go with so have to have the space to pack the whole fam.

Hey there!

SE, MN in the driftless area.
Driving a 14 Jeep Wrangler and a 21 Jeep Wrangler.
Have traveled a lot before owning this vehicle pulling an air stream travel trailer. Switched to the single unit in a Jeep with a roof tent for our family of 4 and the occasional 4 legged friend coming along.

Hello Everyone!

Im from Ventura County and I currently drive a 2015 Toyota Tacoma Sport 4x4. It’s been a dream of mine since 2012 as freshman in college to one day be able to afford my first rig and explore this beautiful country and beyond.
