Hey All ,

We are from Eastern CO (east of COS) New to Overlanding, but grew up "4wheelin'" and then Off-Roadin'. Always been an out door guy, hiking, hunting, fishing, remote camping etc and in the last two years have got into mountain biking, snowshoeing. Now that our kids are older we decided to get back into going to far (and not so far) away places by vehicle. So a few months ago we bought a 2013 trail Ed. 4runner and decided that's the perfect truck for us to do this in. Installed a roof rack from victory 4x4, then bought a RTT (still installing that..gotta be done by end of day friday for a trip )

Hi y'all. My name is Rob McKinnell and I'm in Wiggins Mississippi. I retired from the Army in 2012 and now own a small farm.

I have a Colorado ZR2 that is stock but I have plans (front bumper, winch, shock relocation, skid plates), but am going to run it as is for now (not many rocks in Mississippi lol). I've built many rock crawlers out of Jeeps (yj and tj) and spent years on the road "less traveled".

I'm just looking for some like minded people around me to wheel with who are into it a little more than a mud puddle and beer.

And I can't add a pic lol
