Hi there, just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I am located in Colorado near Canon City and do most of my exploring either in a 2002 Ford Excursion (Family of 7), 2013 Kawasaki Versys and Honda XR600R.

I've been off-roading, camping and backpacking most of my life and as the family grew overlanding seemed like a logical extension of that. Wouldn't say I am Experienced but I'm also not brand new.

Looking forward to getting involved and meeting up with folks from here!

Location: Costa Mesa, CA
Vehicle: 2017 Subaru Outback (modded)
Previous Vehicle: 2017 Mitsubishi Pajero (when I lived abroad in Qatar)

Previous Experience/Why?: Novice-mediocre: lots of sand dunes and airing down stock tires, which worked great. Also had a scary day stuck off grid in the mud in Qatar in 115F heat. Don’t make that mistake! Off grid/BLM camping only for me in SoCal- don’t like seeing neighbor camp sites. Love getting out of town and into nature!

Greetings from Wisconsin! I have a '21 Forester with no mods yet, I'm an experienced long distance hiker and camper and have always sought out adventure. I'm getting older now and it's time to put some wheels under myself. I have most of the gear I'll need and I'm starting on my rig as I can afford but right now I'm looking forward to some winter-wonderland adventure.

Hello all! My name is Josef. I have lived in Los Angeles and adjacent all my life. I have a temperamental 1996 Land Rover Discovery that I absolutely love, and that gives me non-stop problems. I like to explore, though have mostly only done so on small trips and locally, though I'd like to go out and see more/do more. I'm really bad at taking pics when I do anything, so I'll include a pic of the rover in its most common "off-road" spot... the back of a tow truck!

Howdy! My name is Jean-Christophe (John for short). Currently living in Houston TX, so not sure if that's part of the SW or SE. We travel mostly the SW right now, but we're open to explore anything. We have a 2016 Jeep JKU, and so far we did simple trips out West with nothing major but building our gear slowly up. I'm looking forward learning a lot more and most importantly meet you guys out on the trails!

Aaron here. Currently driving a 2021 JL. Central IL. Not much to do here. I do however camp in mall parking lots and local Bass Pros to feel like I’m a overlander. All kidding aside here.

Hi!!!!

Bass pro has a stream and waterfalls outside!!! This is genius. OKC actually has a Cabellas on the North side as well. I am set thanks for the tip

Hello! Hunter Guerrero here. This is my 2016 Jeep Wrangler JKU Sport S. Her name is Celia Cruise but I have a hood banner that says ARROZCON. That might need an explanation. I have many DIY projects on her including a solar water tank and most recently a tailgate table. Ever evolving and I only have about $30,000 in mods to go! I live in Northern California and haven’t gone too far outside my area to adventure but I’d like to. That’s why I joined up here.

My name is Raymond. Building a 2015 Tacoma Double cab. Currently in OKC and know just enough to be dangerous but the trucks isn’t on fire or stuck in the ditch so I am doing OK guess. Right now building a roof rack and at the same time sound deadening the rear seat area for a platform. I HATE this damn stuff. But even only 1/3 done it’s made a huge difference
Greetings Raymond and welcome to Overland Bound!

Welcome Hunter. I'd be interested in the story behind the name and hood banner.

Hello Everyone. My name is Peter and I go by Fig. It's great to join the community and I am really looking forward to this new journey in both my life and my wifie. We are older, but with young hearts and still very adventurous. We have moved from a Jeep Rubicon JK to the new Launch Edition Gladiator which we absolutely love. We have been camping for many years and now that we are approaching our retirement years we want to begin our overlanding experience. Hopefully with this community we can begin that journey.. Next step for us in fact this coming weekend is to head out from North Carolina all the way to Boise Idaho to pick up our new overlanding rig, the Conqueror UEV 490. Looking forward to meeting any locals near Raleigh area in NC. Cheers! Fig
