1) Picture! If you have a rig, we want to see it!

View attachment 205385

2) Location (General area is fine)

North Central Illinois - where I-80 and I-39 intersect

3) Rig (Year, Make, Model, etc.)

2008 Hummer H3 Alpha, 1967 M416 military surplus trailer

4) Overlanding Experience Background (Novice or Experienced, you're welcome here!)

Way back in the '90s I used to edit the Dodge pages on off-road.com. Never been a hard-core off-roader, but have had lots of fun over the years with a 1983 Dodge Ramcharger, a 2006 TJ, and, since then, my baby Hummer. Love camping and using a 4x4 to explore interesting and hard-to-reach places.

I put some videos of some of my adventures here:

I'm active in Illinois Overlanders:

I've been a guest in the forums for quite some time, and am a big fan of the videos - really helped my upgrade my gear and up my outdoor adventure game in general. Finally decided to pay for a membership to help support the community!

Great choice of vehicle! Grew up a Chevy kid and got myself a 2019 Chevy Colorado too. It’s gotten me to places I would never thought I’d get to. Happy adventuring!!!

Been having fun with it. Done some light off-roading and now it’s just saving money to modify it little by little.

Hi - I’m Dina and with my hubby Tom, we’re just starting to plan on outfitting our 2014 Nissan Armada. It’s stock already 4x4 with 33s but we’re planning on upgrading to all terrain tires in the same size. Other than that, we’re still figuring it out. Oh, and we’re in NJ.

Hello Fellow Land-Vikings!!
Live in the PNW, retired military, new to owning a truck and to over-landing. Purchased my 2021 Ram; "TANK", in March, and have did a couple things to it already (rack, and RTT).
Joined the forum to find out about more places to disperse camp here in WA. State, and maybe make a friend or two. :grinning:

What's up everyone.

The wife and I have always loved camping and being out doors. I recently traded for a 2010 Tacoma and after doing a little research decided we needed to start overlanding lol. we live in Northern Alabama and hope to hit the trails with the kiddos this fall.
