My name is Ben. I live in the Tucson area. Looking to broaden my social network and meet new people.

Bought my Jeep jk new in 2008. I got a teardrop on order and should pick it up in July. Always down for anything.

Hope to see you out there!
Hello Ben, welcome to the OB family. Nice username. Bat21 was a great movie.
Yes, sir! Big fan of the skymaster.

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
Hello Jules, welcome to the OB family. That rig should get you where you need to go.

Hi everyone, I’m Jake and I recently moved to Raleigh, NC. I’ve owned a ‘97 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L for 4 years now but I just started getting into offroading as my build has progressed. I recently did my first overlanding trip out in Pisgah National Forest and I am hooked! Looking to meet new people and plan some trips.

Long time listener, first time caller.

Love spending time outdoors but found that as I get older those backpacking trips are taking longer and longer to recover from. So vehicle camping was my best bet to continue that and gave me a way to continue my passion of working on and building cars.

Not a complete noob to overlanding/offroading, but in the middle of the first build of my own. Picked up a 2000 LX470 earlier this year and have put a lot of time into maintenance and upgrades. Maintenance is all current and I've added an Ironman4X4 FCP Stage 3 kit and WKOR sliders to date. Bumpers and a GOBI rack are on order but who knows when those will arrive.

Just happy to be here and hope to find some good trails, events, and people.

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 Steve, welcome to the OB community.
