Hi All. What a great organization. Excited to get my vehicle after a year long wait, I am semi-retired, "mid aged" lady who grew up in the desert. Recently, Moab was an energy charged thrill at the March Bronco OffRoadeo driving experience. Rock climbing is so much easier from the 60/70s! Cold and mud are a whole new thing to me here in SouthEast WA. I am taking my basic truck and tent to the Bend, OR Expo the weekend of 7/8. Then I will know more and be equipped to head out on the first journey.

Hi all,
I'm Mike. This is my truck and that's my enormous popup trailer in the background. I will be building a new expedition trailer from scratch, and it will take a while.

Hi Mike,

Welcome to Overland Bound!

DIY expedition trailers are always interesting. If you like, you can show some pictures of the building process here. Thank you.

And I think you will find many ideas and suggestions here in the OB forum. Have you seen the Overland Trailers subforum already? There is also a DIY section there.

Greetings from across the pond

Good afternoon, new to Overlanding, but not outdoors. We are transitioning from the RV lifestyle to Overlanding. Started with a 30-foot box, then moved to an Off-grid caravan, still feel that isn't for us. So now it's overlanding's turn. Currently planning on building it on a 2014 F150 Supercrew FX4 and looking at Tent topper options. Retired Army so I am a planner, then execute. Any insight and tips would be graciously accepted. (especially in the realm of power solutions and wire management best practices) Also would love to hear everyone's approach to water storage/solutions for both potable and showers. Taken it all in. Was at the Overland Expo West on Friday and it was a blast (super windy too...lol)

View attachment 230710Hello everyone, it said to introduce myself and rig so here I am. My name is Roger and I live in Turlock Ca. I’m pretty new to overlanding and off-roading. I recently did a trip to the mountains where I camped out of my truck and adventured and I’ve been itching to get back out there and thought plugging into a community would be a good resource
Current rig and daily driver is a 2006 F150 XLT 4x4. with a level kit and 285’s.
Welcome, i will keep you in mind for some trips that I and a few members are trying to get on the calendar. We are mixed group of experiences.

Welcome to Rally Point! - Overland Bound

Thank you for your service!
I am not an expert in anyway on the power issue, but over build has always been my plan. I would rather have built it to robust than find out in the field I did not build it well and have trouble because of that. I am in the process of putting the finishing touches on my power setup in the rear of my 4runner, if you want to ask specific questions my personal cell is 602-510-0439. Sunday mornings I will not be available (church) other than that call me anytime.
