From Montana, lived in Wyoming and now live in Northeast Colorado. I grew up on a ranch that did guided hunts and pack trips. I have been on fire crews, worked briefly as an EMT and contracted to the USFS as a packer. Moved on from most of that but my family and I still love the outdoors and do a lot of dispersed camping around us. I have a 1978 Ford Bronco that I am building for being more mobile so that we can get a bit further back from time to time, it's a work in progress. I also have a F350 that is capable but not ideal. My wife sold her Tacoma because my family outgrew it, and it had 285K miles. I've not been on any long term long distance trips but not opposed to it when life makes room, so for now we are weekend warriors and good with that. Look forward to sharing life's experiences with all of you. Thanks

Hi All. New member from the Bay Area.

My wife and I are new to overlanding and have built up her 2020 Toyota Tacoma Off-Road. We are looking forward to getting out much more.

Thanks,

Welcome to Colorado! We have a pretty active group here in Co but I'm definitely going to have to pick your brain about cool places to camp in Wyoming. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with that Bronco. Please feel free to reach out if there's anything I can assist with.

New member here!

My Tata (grandpa) took us on an annual camping trip down to Baja California or east county San Diego. I admired his overland/camping gear and I always knew I would someday build my own gear and rig. Happy to be here and learn from all you.
I'm a UI/UX Designer (basically web design); I spend the whole day at home in front of my laptop so camping/overlanding in my 2021 JLUR is my dream escape. (my previous vehicle was a 2015 Prius C :sweatsmile:)

Hi everyone, new members here…

We are a couple from the UK that have had a dream to travel the world.
After both loosing a parent in 2019 we decided to sell everything and travel full time.
We have a 2011 Nissan Navara/3.0l V6 diesel with a Fourwheel camper that we live in full time.

Due to the pandemic we have been stuck in the Uk, but not anymore….
We are now in Mexico waiting for our truck to arrive
Once land borders open we will be heading up to the US
Hello Steve and welcome to Overland Bound, and welcome to North America!

Hello my name is James West. I’m new to overlanding from the Denver area. I’m getting into overlanding to show my kids there is more to life then video games and YouTube. I drive a ram 2020 power wagon.
Hi James! Welcome to OverlandBound, We have quite a few members specifically in the Aurora area and a ton all around Colorado. Those Power Wagons are remarkable vehicles. We are quite frequently getting out for Trail Rides and group camping trips. Almost always posted on Rally point, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need any assistance, hopefully we will get to see you on some of our upcoming trips!

I'm Beccy and a new member in Texas. Started camping and backpacking a long time ago. Life happened and I stopped but now that I'm on my own I've started looking for a good vehicle to do some Overlanding. Excited to meet others enjoying life in the great outdoors.

I live in New Jersey - North Western section a little closer to nature!

I have a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sahara with no mods yet

I did some overlanding way back in the 80-90s but am back! I would consider myself and advanced novice :-)

Looking forward to getting back into this hook line and sinker...

Thanks! I literally was looking at the same truck that you have before I got the Jeep. My wife and daughter convinced me to get a Jeep since I've had GM and Ford trucks in the past but never had a Jeep.
That's cool. I went with a truck because it's my daily, everything, driver. Being based on the Hummer H3 platform, I figured it would be a good overlander too.
