Thanks for the warm welcome. Hope to meet many of you on the trail soon

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest. Been overlanding since before it was even a common term here in the states. Mostly just driving an old Land Rover Discovery but miss the days in the FJ40. I like to build all of my own stuff and often travel alone but have decided to finally join the party.
Cheers, I look forward to meeting new people here.
Kris
Welcome to OB Kris, hopefully you can share some of your knowledge with people getting into overlanding

Hi Everyone,
Pierre here, leaving in Perth, Australia.
I drive a 2005 Toyota Prado VX Petrol. Love this car for the confort and it takes me pretty much everywhere I want!
I don't consider myself as a novice anymore, I've travelled a fair bit of this beautiful country offroad, but I still have much to learn before being called "experienced" ;)
Welcome to OB, seems like lots of cool areas to drive to in Aus, Im hooked watching 4WD Action on youtube.

Have fun out there

Howdy Y'all!
Name is Eric but Aztec is my handle on most other things.
I'm from North Texas, North of the DFW area.
I currently have an 05 Tacoma TRD Sport 2WD :cry:
It's paid off and I'm waiting to find a good low mileage 2nd Gen TRD Off-road or similar that I can trade mine in on.
Previous overlanding experience, well I used to be into the Jeep scene, got rid of my lifted ZJ on 33" boggers to help buy our first house and because my first kid was arriving. I've done mudding, rock crawling, and the general off road adventure.
I am getting into overlanding because i love the outdoors and I want my kids to experience them more than I did as a kid.
I like to hike, mountain bike, kayak, camp... You name it I'll probably do it.
Formerly in the Marine Corps, where I did a lot of "camping" ha ha. And shooting, another one of my passions.
I am also big into DIY and fabrication, also kinda cheap... So for most of the parts that I CAN build for my rig I plan on doing them myself. Plus, I like the whole "built not bought" philosophy.

I'm done to meet up with people in my area or for events when I can, but until I find the right truck I won't be doing a whole lot of off roading.
Welcome to OB Eric, you can still get out and explore even with 2wd just make sure you get a pal to give you a pull if needed,
Have fun out t here

Hey folks, Graham here from Nebraska, USA. My current rig is a 2016 Subaru Forester to get the wife, boy, and 2 pups around. It does fine for now but will eventually need to upsize a bit. Planning on moving into a Taco or 4Runner soon. Amazing how much gear you can amass with small person additions...

Overlanding experience is novice but outdoor experience is high. Been camping/hiking/exploring all over this country since I was young and overlanding seems like a great way to get the family out with me. Being from NE you really have to load up the vehicle and drive to get anywhere! Have explored Europe a bit by vehicle and traveled to Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, and hoping to add others. Best way to see those places is to rent whatever vehicle the renters give you and drive.

Appreciate to be a part of the community and look forward to meeting you guys out there!

Hey OB fam! New to all this, but I have had to sleep in my jeep before, so I guess I'm officially an overlander.

My wife and I are slowly turning our 2013 stock Rubicon into a trail ready vehicle for the slowlane lifestyle we're prepping for once retirement gets here! We're posting improvements and mod pics to slowlaneJK's instagram account (mainly for family but also to have a platform to go back and look at the progress of it all.)

Can't wait for the meet and greets.

Hi All!

I'm Will, I have a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner 4X4 Limited. It's stock right now, however I have plans to do a 3" suspension lift, off road bumpers, rock sliders, and a winch. I'm new to Overlanding, but our family are always looking for a new adventure, and trail to explore.
