Hi,

My wife, son, and dog love the outdoors. We live in Colorado and while we are experienced tent campers, we wanted to get into overlanding to be able to access more areas to hike and explore. I have a 2009 Honda Ridgeline (standard) and a 2021 High Altitude Trailers XT-50. Charles at Earthship Overland in Denver recommended this site to us. Very new to this, so open to feedback, recommendations, etc.

Thanks!

-Bobby

Hi everyone! Long time outdoorsman just getting into this exciting world of overlanding. I’m mainly getting into this so I can escape the monotony of city life in Los Angeles and enjoy some peace in the wilderness with my two kids with relative ease compared to the backpacking I’m used to.

I look forward to meet you all in the future!

I currently run a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado z71.
Welcome to the Overland Bound family!

Well Howdy!

I mostly joined Overland Bound for the cool metal badge, and to learn where they got those stickers featured on the Zarges website.

I overland, but largely I overland to facilitate my scuba and surfing Hobbies. I'm always tweaking a rig to be the ultimate dive truck that is a competent overlander.

I'm a software engineer currently working on autonomous rockets that deliver sats to low earth orbit.

I'm generally dissatisfied with the state of products in the overlanding industry, and I keep trying to steal time from mechanical engineers to make it better.
I'm here to connect, to relax, and just maybe improve the state of our toys: For instance, how are RSI SmartCap owners satisfied with those crappy compression latches? 6 of them? With the most hackable key ever...never mind- I digress, but maybe I can solve it with a kick starter. Anyway, it'd be cool to connect with builders, mechanical engineers and see if we can't improve things a bit.

Pleased to be here.
Welcome to Overland Bound.

Hey I’m the Vagrant and My Beautiful wife, we will call her The Bird. This is our New to us 2016JKU We had a bad ass Rav 4 that we took on many off-road and on road adventures but hurricane Ida ate her in one bite! We are excited for the upgrade none the less. We are big campers, love our paddle boards (we take em down the Delaware river.) we have two dogs and we need to get some mud in these tires! We are thinking of doing the northern section of the trans Nj Trail this weekend but we are having trouble finding information! Happy Trails. VAGRANT , BIRD

Hello Jarred, welcome to both of you to Overland Bound. Try trailsoffroad.com for local trails information, I find their ratings, as far as the difficulty of a trail to be accurate.
