Hello Everyone
Just joined up glad to be part of the group. Running a 2008 Jeep JKU, Unlimited X, many mods done, it's been a work vehicle for me from the Northwest Territories to the Canada/US border so it's seen its fair share of Western Canada, I work in the Canadian Oilfield so lots of time spent in the backcountry. I guess I have been overlanding for many years(Just didn't know the name LOL)
Working where I do you have to be extremely self sufficient as you are out alone scouting very remote locations with Zero communications available.

Just getting into the Overlanding world excited to get out there more! I drive a 2021 Toyota Tacoma that I'm slowly working on gearing out as I gain experience.

I'm in the Seattle area for now, would love any and all connections/suggestions for awesome beginner places to go explore! I'm also huge on Mt. Biking, so combining the two is the ultimate goal.

Happy to be here!

Now to figure out where my medallions go :D

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are relatively new to overlanding. I started building my rig—the CranBeast, a 2010 GX 460—in October of last year and we just returned from our first big trip to Colorado. We learned a ton and one of our favorite aspects of the trip was all the great people we met in the hobby from all over the place.

I’m also new to ham radio and my call is k5sbc.

We’re based in St. Louis, MO.

Sam
