Hello fellow Overbound Members!
I’m excited to be a new member of the community!
I’m located in San Diego, CA.
My rig is a 05 Toyota Tundra which I call Picante. I’m the original owner and spent the last year turning her into a proper overland vehicle. I gave her a fresh coat of paint, upgraded her suspension with Bilstien shocks, put on new wheels, and built out the camper. I just got back from taking her on her maiden voyage since the makeover. We traveled through the back country of Northern and Central Arizona.
I’m no stranger to overlanding, although we called it off-roading back in the day. Me and my buddies spent a lot of time traveling in Baja California looking for secluded surf spots.
If you are traveling the back country of the American West and happen to spot a deep red 1st gen Tundra driven by a guy wearing a western style hat… feel free to come over and say hello.

Michael from the California San Joaquin valley. 2008 Jeep JK Unlimited on 37's that we've rock crawled in California and Moab. Time to dial it back and do some easier trails and just enjoy the scenery.

Hello, my name is Morgan, and I’m new here. Haha

I drive a 16’ Chevy Colorado. Just started mods on it. I built the roof rack and am in the process of building a rooftop tent. Needless to say at this point, I like building stuff.
Welcome aboard Morgan! There are plenty, and I mean PLENTY, of DIYers here and on the forums willing to help with ideas and troubleshooting for future projects. I know I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hi! I'm Candice, recently relocated in Colorado (my native state) after being in California for 20+ years. I'm a rookie at overlanding and looking to learn about possible vehicle mods for my 2019 RAV4 Limited, and/or if mods are even necessary. I look forward to participating in a community where I can meet like minded people while enjoying the outdoors, each other or our vehicles. I used to camp with my dad a lot as a kid but have not gone camping much as an adult, so I'm hoping to get that spark for the joy of camping again. I think facing mother nature builds character and confidence. If you have any recommendations in Colorado for newbies like me in vehicles like mine, please do let me know! I'm looking forward to scenic drives, camping, hiking and learning about my vehicle and driving off-road skills!

Hello!

My name is Reed, I'm from East Texas but in college right now at Dallas Baptist University. I drive a 2001 Jeep Wrangler T. I am pretty new to overlanding but not the outdoor lifestyle. I have loved camping and being outdoors all my life and have made great memories camping, backpacking, canoeing, climbing, etc. and now want to experience a new way to enjoy the outdoors through overlanding. I have been on a couple small trips already and loved it so I'm excited to learn and possibly hit some trails with some of y'all!

Hello Candice, welcome to Overland Bound.
I have found trailsoffroad.com to be accurate in their assessment of the degree of difficulty on their trail ratings. You might try them for local trails.

Welcome from Germany Reed! Overlanding plus all your other outdoor activities is a great combo. I look forward to reading about your trips.

Why Overlanding?: with a background in 4x4 exploring (no camping), backpacking, car-camping and such, it just seemed natural to upgrade the Trooper we'd used to haul Boy Scouts all over the Eastern Sierra and Berdoo, making it into a rig for my son, out dog and me. We're into it for the travel, for the remote fishing lakes, the backroads...

Welcome Morgan to Overland Bound, the Texas chapter is strong and mighty, even if we have limited places to play in the state

Welcome Erik, what a great area for Overlanding and Scouting we got taken WAY out to the race trace in Death Valley to earn our Bugling badges. They said we could wake the dead. Don't think any of use slept that weekend

I’m excited to be new to the community! Our family has been off-roading for a few years, but have recently gotten into overlanding with our 1967 m416 military trailer. I can’t wait to get involved!
Welcome Jason
