Hello OB community! I'm happy to be on board. My name is Nick and I live in Oklahoma City. I currently drive and wheel a 2001 Nissan Xterra (4x4, 3.3, 5 speed). I have restored 4 Jeep CJs over the years, built a couple of Wranglers, and also an 84 Wagoneer but I'm currently Jeepless. My family outgrew the old Wrangler and since I didn't want a huge payment on a new 4 door, Xterra it is. This is my second Xterra and I'm a huge fan. Basically, I'm pretty much a huge fan of any and all truck based 4x4s, and even a few unibodies. My wife and I along with our kids got into overlanding because we love adventure. We look forward to being a part of the OB community and to seeing you on the trails.

Hi everyone, I'm from Yorktown, Virginia and I'm very excited to have finally joined the overland community. I've always been quite enthusiastic about overlanding but have never had my own vehicle to do so with. I have a fair amount of off road driving experience but I'm anxious to learn more. A couple months ago I purchased a 2003 4Runner SR5, It's bone stock at the moment but I have a couple things that my friend gave me from his old rig so soon I'll be installing a power inverter, cb radio, and an on board air setup.

From one Bay Area transplant to another, welcome to the wonderful PNW! I'm a little too far North to provide solid advice on trails and fishing in OR, but if you make it to the top of WA, I can show you around a bit.

Hi Everyone!

I'm Eric and I'm a novice Overlander! My gf (who is my Overlanding partner) and I just moved to Chapel Hill, NC and are starting the next chapter in our lives, and with Overlanding!

I have a 2015 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab, Prerunner, & SR5. We'll definitely need to upgrade the suspension and convert the transmission to 4x4 to do things safely! If you have any advice, I'd love to hear it! Looking forward to being a part of this community!!!

Hi I am Dakota Embree, I live in Columbus oh and have all my life. I have never been off-roading on purpose and haven’t owned a vehicle that was set up to do so. I have always been obsessed with the idea of getting off the beaten path and living off what ever you brought with you. I am a huge fan of backpacking so I know how to camp and enjoy it. I will be buying my fathers 2016 Tacoma 4 door truck off him in February so I am currently making a list of all the things I wanna do to it in my head and saving up so when I get the truck I can start scratching it and building it up. I am a paramedic that works for amazon (I am like a school nurse there) I also work at the Columbus Zoo as a paramedic. I am not mechanically inclined but have passion and will learn how to work on my truck when I get it. I will be at overland expo east again this year and am excited to look at all the new inventions and cool toys to play with.

Hello! We are Jeff and Heidi. We have had our 80 series for a little over 4 years. It was in really rough shape when we got it. We have gotten it back in good mechanical shape. We are doing a lot of just day trips right now as work and kids stuff allow. We are looking forward to doing more trips that are longer. We hope to meet some people on here that help us get out and do more. We just got it back on the road after some much needed work.

Hey Derek! Welcome! I am starting to blame Swellrunner a bit as well! Oh, and Trail4R.com too ;-) There are quite a few of us in the Portland metro area I think...

Welcome Joshua (or is it Josh?)! Maybe we can help each other out on finding some fly fishing spots! I have been in the area for about 15 years and am still looking for good, accessible spots; that’s one of my top reasons for finally getting s more capable rig recently. There are quite a few spots in the Coastal range, up on Hood, and down the corridor a bit. Lots of opportunities to explore!!!!

Hey you guys and gals thanks for welcoming me. My name is Justin and I am new to overlanding. All this just starting falling in my lap. I love the outdoors and camping and rock climbing. My rig is a 1982 Jeep Cherokee Cheif, I call it Big Bird. I am still very new to all of this and am still fitting out my rig. Any information about good cheap rig setups would be really helpful. I live just outside of DC in Falls Church VA .IMG_20180728_112459.jpg

Welcome and Big Bird looks awesome. Sounds like there is a story behind her too? [emoji16]

Greetings from a fellow Xterra owner. There's an Xterra thread here if you haven't seen it already. Welcome to the community!

Greetings from Greensboro, NC.

My name is Chris, been lurking here for a little while and decided to join the site. I've been camping, wheeling, off-roading, or overlanding for most of my life and don't plan to stop any time soon. I usually try to get out at least once or twice a month for a weekend. I'm always looking for new ideas and learning, and hope to pass some knowledge along here as well.

Oh, and I've been a Jeep owner since 2003 - currently my white '15 Rubicon takes me everywhere I want to go!

Nice setup!! Welcome to Overland Bound. I’ll be in NC in November. Can’t wait!

Hello, overlanders, I'm foxtrot from greenville, sc. I drive a stock 99 tacoma with 350,000 miles, still runs like a dream! Hoping to really get into the community in a big way, as I just love taking my taco everywhere with me, and it's not as much fun alone.
Nice!!! I just recently purchased my 3rd Tacoma. My goal is to get over 300k out of my 2018. Welcome to OB!
