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.
Hello Hunter, welcome to the OB family.

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

Hey OB Crew - My name is CJ and my wife and I call Northern California home. We have a '19 4Runner ORP with a few things. Accutune gave us a Fox setup, RCI sliders, Icon links, Prinsu rack, skids... and I got a Pelfrey bumper from the BAMF yardsale. I've done a little wheeling in the past, but definitely novice at best. Oh and we just landed a new Opus OP4 trailer last month. Super excited to get this out and use it!View attachment 214112

My rig is a 87 Ford Bronco XLT. Still doing upgrades.
For now I'm still in Tampa Bay area Florida.
I enjoy the outdoors when not extremely hot. I have some knowledge of overland from being in the military. I also have search and rescue training. Plus medical. That is my dog Stella in my bronco.

Hello Matthew, welcome to Overland Bound.
Thank you for your service, it is appreciated.
Stella looks like she is wondering when you are going.

Hello Overland Bounders,
My name is Mark.
Rigs several…I have an addiction to overland rigs, mostly cause until my recent retirement I worked as the sales & marketing rep for Colorado Camper Van. So the current stable is a 2004 CCV built E350 6.0 uh_oh 4x4 high top w/ full interior build out, 2000 E350 Ujoint built 4x4 van (currently giving it a face lift) and 2015 Jeep JKUR with Ursa Minor pop top.
I reside in Loveland CO. Been into overlanding for 10 years or so… but was really doing it before I even knew the term.
My hobbies out side of overlanding include in no particular order - dogs, rock climbing, mtn biking, fly fishing, alpine skiing & surfing.

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!
Welcome to OB, John! We're glad to have you here, be sure to share all about your adventures. Enjoy!
