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.

Hola.

New Northeastern overlander here. Based out of Mass. Don't have much experience overlanding, but quite a bit of experience camping. I know my way around a wrench (and especially electricals.)

This is my rig, a lifted subaru impreza. Works pretty well for me so far!

Should've joined when I was still inn Washington! Oh well. Better late than never. :D
