Sup folks,

Really excited to be here! Just got into overlanding recently, but all in. I reside in West TN and am hoping to hit up LBL and the ozarks very soon!

In the last month I added a lift and 33's to my 07 taco along with the yakima bedrack/rtt system. Hoping to install my usoffroad bumper and SB winch this weekend and hit trails asap.

Looking forward to meeting some fellow enthusiasts and learn from the pros!

Hi,

My name is Matt. I am currently out of Travelers Rest, SC. I just purchased a 2013 jku wrangler. She is called ,"The Black Pearl."

I have the approach of only fix it if it is broken or if it's something I just want or something that would make traveling with my wife and 2 toddlers a little easier.

When it comes to the outdoors of camping, hiking, etc, I have a lot of experience. However, when it comes to overlanding and off-roading, I am quite new.

I love to learn and have a lot of questions, especially for those who are women and those who travel with kids.

Any Pink Floyd fans out there?
I'm in the PWN / King County.
So, I'm both new and old to overlanding. Before I had real kid's I had a 79 Jeep CJ5. Like a child when you feed a rig green stuff it grows up. Started with a stock rig and grew up to run 4:10's, w/ an arch-locker on 35's... a shackle swap and spring over lift. What a great crawler.
Now I'm all in and full size with a new to me F150. What's in the mail? FOX 2.0 suspension, RSI SmartCap, BedRug. S2 Baja design revers lights. In the cart... a cheap steal bumper that I can cut-up/modify for an integrated swing away Recon bike rack. A solar kit (still working on that spec) AUX power control system, some big tires. Maybe 35's but probably 33's. I'll figure the rest out as I go.

Any Fullsize fit-out suggestions are welcome.

Why Overland... My daughter and I travel to race mountain bikes and we ski for fun. From Virgin UT to Whistler BC and everything between, to and fro. Such great adventures!

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @Ubiety is your closest member representative.
To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).
Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.
Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.
Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.
Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.
Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.
Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.
Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.
