Greetings. I'm new to overlanding but enjoyed spending last 12 months getting the family out of the house and into nature as often as possible. 2021 JT is our first 4WD (ever) and we are digging it. Weekend and multi-day camping (dispersed and otherwise) as well as daytrips to deep corners of Arizona backcountry. Learning as much as I can and working hard to counter the office-worker lifestyle with mandatory outdoor fun.

Hello! I'm a novice to overlanding but have been trail riding for a number of years. My rig is a 2007 Jeep JKUR still in the process of building. I share a cabin in Bear Gulch just outside of Twin Bridges Montana with other family members. I have not been up in a number of years but looking to put toghether a trip with the cabin being the end point. I'm sure there are lots of phenominal routes to do along the way. I'm sure I'll reach out for pointers and tips along the process.

Hello Fellow Adventurers. My name is Boyd. Just getting started doing some overland adventures with my two Jeep Grand Cherokees. My son drives my 2004 WJ as his primary so I am hoping he wants to explore the wilderness with me. Looking forward to learning from all the experience here and hopefully helping out when I can! Thank You for having me!
Location: Fort Wayne, Indiana
Current Vehicle: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
Other Vehicle: 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Special Edition
Overland Experience: Novice-like
Why Overlanding?: I do a lot of dual sport and off road motorcycle riding. I have found myself wanting to share my love of outdoors with other people that do not ride bikes. Also I have relearned the love of camping so I hope to get out and camp in some remote areas.

Hey All. I’m Sam from Houston. I have a 2005 LR3. I’m incredibly new to overlanding. I have always wanted to do it, but found excuses why I couldn’t. If I’ve learned anything over the last couple of years it’s that there is no time like the present, so I finally decided to go for it. Looking forward to getting to know the local group, and having some fun.

Best,

SM
Welcome Sam!
