Hi. I’m Jana from Belgium. Along with my family of four we have been preparing for a long time to start overlanding indefinitely as of next summer. Our first years will likely be with a small van with rooftop tent and stay within broader European region until we have prepared our larger 4x4 mobilhome. Looking forward to learning from all of you

Hello Everyone!

New member here and little something about me, I always wanted to go do dispersed camping. Never camped in my life or any outdoor activities. Being the sole provider to a family of 6, it was hard to go out and do the things I wanted to do. Now 2 of my kids are old enough to help around the house, I now have a little bit of time for myself. So when I turned 40 a few months back, I made a decision to go out and do what I've always wanted to do. Since I cannot do this more than 3 days at a time and just to get my feet wet with the experience, I will be using my 2004 BMW X5 3.0. It's got 129k miles and currently refreshing the whole cooling system, ccv system to cold weather, valve cover and oil filter housing gaskets and upgrading the disa valve. I am doing it myself a few hours a day and looking to get everything done by end of week.

Looking forward to learn from everyone and maybe get access to easy trails, campsites around northern CA.

Hello all!

I found OB through YouTube while researching drawer systems for my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Currently it’s bone stock and still needs some maintenance items addressed. Seems to be an okay purchase for $200.

I’m definitely a novice at overlanding, my general camping experience has always been camping over weekends with the long haul trips reserved for hunting camp.

I’ve been watching the Aussie show on YouTube, 4WD 24-7 and watched all of the Expedition Overland series on Prime Video which has got me interested in overlanding.

We’re currently based out of Moscow, Idaho.

Excited to learn more and get my family out for some vehicle based adventures.

Hey Guys!
My name is Hunter and I’m from Thomasville, Ga (30 miles north of Tallahassee, FL)
Just got a Toyota Tundra last month, and kinda became obsessed with overlanding videos and podcasts. I’m going to start slow and can’t wait to get out there!

2004 Dodge ram 6" lift 37" tires With a list that goes on. I am in Vancouver British Columbia, I did camping and some pretty serious 4 wheeling with my dad as a kid in an old xj But then my dad went away and life past I never really forgot it so once my wife and I had our son I went and found the same XJ same year and every thing and the three of us set out on a good 10 years of deep back woods camping through out BC sitting in a 2015 JKU with lots of work done to it now and the XJ gone we decided about three years ago to have it just for 4wheeling and build a overlander
