Hey there, Jeremy from San Diego here, although you’ll find me on trails across the Southwest and Baja California most days. I am the owner of CampDad’s Adventure Co, and have multiple Jeeps for guest use, but my primary “rocklander” is a ‘99 Toyota 4Runner with all the things

Hello all!

I'm new to overlanding, coming over from a Jeep TJ rock crawler and doing my camping in a 5th wheel. I live in Columbia, South Carolina and hard core off roading is tuff to find here, but we have some great wilderness areas and a little dispersed or "Wild" camping in our national forest. Loving the whole car camping cross country vibe and I'm discovering places in my own state that I hadn't considered in the past - to mild to rock crawl to wild to 5th wheel. I've been slowly building out a 2007 Lexus GX470 and I love the capability and versatility it brings to my enjoyment of the great outdoor.

Hello from Bavaria-Germany,

My name is Alex and I'm from the southeastern part of bavaria near the alps. I'm doing a lot of overlanding in southern europe and on a car rental basis in the western part of the US and Canada.
My rig is a 2016 Jeep Wrangler JKU Rubicon with lot's of modifications.
Let's find some new friends worldwide and interesting routes and places to be.
Hello Alex and welcome to Overland Bound!

Hi all!
Excited to be a part of this group which seems to be filled with really cool and helpful people!

I've been a car guy my whole life until we got a wrangler 3 years ago when I had my first daughter. That got me into wanting to learn all about off-roading and despite having only experienced driving on a beach (which is all we have near me), I've just been dying to learn more and get out to do some actual off-roading on trails and such. We had a set of twins last year, so we stepped into a larger vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Sequoia. I love this thing and every where it allows our family to explore. In the past 9 months of having this vehicle, we've already done about 8 road trips in the north-east area.

I'm from Long Island, NY - Suffolk County area.
My experience is pretty limited, pretty much entirely to driving on the beach from really rocky sand to super soft sand lol.

Notable mods so far would be:
20" fuel rims with a set of K02's just a hair over 34", ARB onboard dual air compressor, TRD pro front skid plate, and a set of cali raised ditch lights.
Future mods are some kind of 2-2.5" lift, Gobi ladder, some kind of roof rack that will mount to my stock roof rails and allow me to mount maxxtrax's, shovel, side led lights, and possibly a rooftop cargo box.

Hello everyone,
Brand new member. I decided that I would really enjoy exploring after recently retiring. My wife is adamant that we get a small travel trailer to visit the national parks and forests. I recently purchased a 21 Ram Rebel thinking it could do both. I’m definitely a newbie on dirt. I’m looking for the exploring not rock crawling. Looking forward to meeting like minded folks on the trail.

Steve
Hello Steve and welcome to Overland Bound! Nice choice on the Rebel!!!

Hello Everyone,
My name is John and I am a new member here and also new to overlanding. My wife and I have been wheeling for about 5 years and we also love camping so are looking forward to doing some overlanding. We have a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and have built it up for overlanding. Looking forward to learning more about overlanding and meeting new people.

Hi forum world,

Joining today after making the decision to transition from single day off-road trips to overlanding. We have always ran Jeeps and I recently parted with mine to purchase a Ram 3500 to overland with. As you can imagine, the build plan is moderate since this beast isn't exactly nimble. Looking forward to learning from the community and seeing y'all out there.

Hello All! Chris here… I’ve been lurking for a few months and watching a ton of vids on the OLB YouTube channel as well many others. I’ve gotten into adventuring later in life, but after some positive real life changes, I’ve made a pact with myself to get out and do it! I’ve got an ‘07 Xterra now, but I’ll be selling it and downsizing a bit. Looking forward to some Northeast trips soon. Cheers!

Hello!

I'm KC. I've been a long time lurker and admirer of all things Overland. I'm finally transitioning from backpacking to care based travel. I've car camped in dispersed sites and dabble in 4x4ing but I'm an overland novice!

Looking forward to engaging with everyone and learning more and more.

No pics of the 2018 Sahara JKU because it's currently getting some new installs :)
