Hello Overland Bound Members,

my Name is Markus Hagen. I am located in the middle of Germany and plan to travel all over Europe. My experience so far is on shorter trips to the woods around my hometown and on vacations with my three daughters. We go on trips together mostly to Denmark to ride our Kite Buggies on the beaches. Therefor a 4x4 comes in handy to drag a trailer onto the beach.

I have a faible for Land Rover Defenders. I happen to own 4 of them. My excuse is that we have three girls and they should have their cars, too.

I learned to love camping and campfires since I travel a lot for business reasons and hotel stays are of no value to me anymore. Thank goodness I was able to convince my girls, but sadly my wife has not participated yet.

I am develop an INSTAGRAM account with pictures of my and other peoples cars - mainly Defenders: @landroverdefender007

I am looking forward to meeting other overlanders in Europe and I hope that this community will grow strongly in Europe so that we get good networking-effects like you guys in the US.

Hi Markus,

Also here: welcome to Overland Bound. Was nice to meet you at Abenteuer Allrad expo and I am happy that you joined our campfire there.

Here in the forum you will find plenty of good information about overlanding. Please check also the Rally Points and join us on one of the next meetups again if you like.

In case you have any questions please let me know. Always happy to help.

Cheers, Björn

Hej y'all. I am so stoked to be a member of such a great community. My plans for the upcoming year are to meet as many overland outdoor enthusiasts here in northern Europe especially northern Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

I am 31 years old and a future PE high school teacher, part-time paramedic, swift water rescue technician, and rooftop rent company owner. I am currently driving a 2007 Volvo XC70 cause I think that's the perfect mix of city and adventure car.

Every hour spend in the outdoors is just like a vacation for the soul. Some friends and I are building solid connections and trying to explore the region.

Even though many of you are familiar with the legal situation in Germany. Most of the forest roads are private property with makes it pretty hard and exhausting to explore without getting into discussions. For sure, we have to respect the land of others, and sometimes people are pretty open-minded to permit legal passage.

I hope for a great sharing of gear, tips, and for new adventures to come.

Hook me up when you are around.

Stay safe and open-minded

Thore

Hello Thore,

Welcome to the Forum, but most of all welcome to the community.

If I can help with questions, and providing info I am happy to do so.

Just go to the Europe section of this forum to find more specific info about Europe.

You will find nearly everything on the forum in generall about Overlanding. So just dive in and have fun.

Iam sorry I reacted late, but being on the road last week to Bad Kissingen did make it a bit difficult to react.
So, I hope you can forgive me.


Join us also in the whatsapp group for Mid Europe and our Facebook page.

Enjoy your stay here and I hope to see you somewhere out on a track/event.



Greetings from Robert
