Greetings,
I'm in the Jefferson City, MO area.
I just recently acquired a 2005 Dodge 1500 that I intend to do some work to in order to do some overlanding with.
Most of my experience has been lighter overland trips but I intend to step it up some and gain some more experience.
Welcome from Arizona!

1) I will put a picture up soon, I am waiting on a couple more items to get here in the next week or so.
2) Albuquerque, New Mexico
3) 2017 Toyota Tacoma Off-Road
4) Intermediate- I’ve done quite a bit of off-roading, but my wife and I are getting into over landing and have quite a few trips planned over the next 12 months. We love meeting new people and are looking for other people in the area who want to hit the trails!

Hello everyone,

New member here. Currently located in San Francisco, CA (relocating to the Research Triangle area of North Carolina in a couple of months though). I have a few overland adventures under my belt and I am looking forward to meeting more overlanders and becoming part of the Overland Bound community! My current rig is a 2007 Tacoma seen below after attempting to cross Soda Lake at the end of the Mojave Road.

Good afternoon everyone, I’m Jeremy. I just joined the group today, looking forward to all of the resources that it provides. My wife, Shari, and just purchased a 2021Jeep Galdiator Mojave that we are going to set up over the next few months. We have done overlanding, just a long time ago and decided to get back into exploring our surroundings.
Hello Jeremy and welcome to Overland Bound! Thank you for your service!
Thank you!

Just found this forum! Both my wife and I are retired Air Force. Have a 2018 JL Sahara Jeep. It’s been a lemon since I purchased it new, a little over 3 years ago. Looks like we finally got all the problems worked out of it. Hope so anyway, cause it a blast to drive off-road.

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.
