Hey all, My name is Steve and was just got a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited. It needs some work before I start modding it to be able to be more capable but I'm very interested in getting it cleaned up for long travel. I'm Kansas so there is much for overlanding, but i'm pretty close to a few popular spots that I'm excited to adventure to in the next year or so. Joined this community to get some inspiration for overlanding since I'm new to it.

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

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.
Hey Chris new here also, we are down in Monument, have a JKU and there is 4 of us. Should meet up for a day trip just getting into this Overlanding.

Hey everyone new to this Overlanding. My son and I did a trip down the middle of Oregon last summer before we moved here early this year. Little over 450 miles all offroad from Sisters to Crater lake national park. Setting up the JKU for more off grid camping so I'll have lots of Questions. We are now located in the Colorado Springs/Monumnet Colorado area. Looking to getting some weekend trips in and working up to the longer week ones as we work the bugs out of our set up. We have a 2016 JKU.
