Good morning all,

Thanks for letting me be apart of your Community. My name is Brian, I’m located on Bainbridge Island, WA and I drive a 1998 Jeep Cherokee and have very little overland experience but I am looking forward to learning! Currently I just started planning/building upgrades. I just finished a DIY drawer system that I’ll share soon. View attachment 210025

Good morning everyone,
We just moved down to Florida from Washington and already missing the mountains. We have a 2019 Sprinter 170 4x4.
As far as overlanding experience, I'd say I'm a beginner. We have done small trail runs, lasting a couple days, but nothing crazy.
With that said, we have done loads of road traveling, getting into national forests to camp, hike and explore.
Looking forward to learning more about overlanding on here!View attachment 210027

I love the outdoors and grew up on the beach. We’ll, now I’m landlocked and am looking for something to scratch that itch. I can’t wait to learn something every day and have some good experiences along the way.

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.

I am the Northwest Director. @Gabriel Bozeman is your closest member representative.

To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).

Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.

Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.

Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.

Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.

Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.

Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.

Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.

Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.

Mike Rose

My name is Noah and I live in Gorham Maine (just outside of Portland). New to Overlanding but not new to travel or outdoor activities.

I have a 2015 Nissan Frontier. Nothing much done yet. 2.5" RC lift on 285s.

Anyway thanks again for creating this space. I'm happy to be here!
