Hello all, and greetings from Coeur D'Alene Idaho.

Looking forward to meeting some local members and getting out there!

I've spent a lot of time in the Sierra Nevadas in my old wrangler, but the focus back then was getting to trail heads and then backpacking for a week or two. Now that I have a family in tow, I'm excited to try the overland approach to enjoying the outdoors. I have a lot of experience navigating forest service roads and jeep trails, but a trip to the top of bald mountain near Shaver Lake is about the most technical thing I've tackled in a truck.

Current Fleet:

2002 Landcruiser
2002 4runner
1950 WIlly's jeep

All mostly stock with the exception of mild lifts, armor, winch, and tire upgrades.
Welcome to Overland Bound! Shaver from the back side is fairly technical.

Welcome, @Cabin_fever, to Overland Bound. That is a great fleet you have there! I, too, spent a lot of time in the Sierra Nevadas. Even being at the foot of the Cascades today, I miss them sometimes. The great news is that there are a lot of opportunities in Northern Idaho, so I am sure you won't be bored. @Sandpoint Steve leads a monthly conference call [link] of local (Spokane/North Idaho) members to plan and get to know each other. The group actually just had their first official get together and I know many more things are planned. In fact, at the end of March there is a meetup/learning opportunity right in your in Hayden [link]. To get to know who else is in the area and to talk about PNW specific stuff, head on over to the NorthWest Region forum [link].

As we plan events, they will be posted on our Rally Point System [link], so it is always good to keep an eye on that section.

I look forward to getting to meet you someday. Until then, if you need anything don't hesitate to shoot me a message on the forums @Jedi.

upload_2019-2-24_9-29-11.jpegWanted to say hello and introduce myself! We live dead center in the middle of the country in Omaha Nebraska and love to get out camping and exploring anywhere that we can. The truck is a 2004 Tundra with mild suspension upgrades. The camper that I made and you see in the picture is no longer in the truck and we have switched to a rooftop tent. Way lighter! Glad to finally be part of the community! John

Welcome to the group! Looks like the camper you built was pretty stout. Always hard to let go of the home built stuff, but the RTT’s are pretty awesome. Either way, as long as you like to get out and adventure you’ll fit in very well here.

Just kidding, welcome to the group. Join in the conference call and we have a free event on 3/30 to put some names and faces together. We should be getting some trail rides on the calendar soon.

Hello my name is George... well it actually is Gyorgy but it is easier for everyone to say it the other way. I live in St.louis Missouri. I have wanted to join the Overlanding community for a while now. I had a few problems along the way, but doesn't everyone? Well anyway thank you for the opportunity to be in the Overlanding community.

Ha! I'm still a Jeep man at heart, but I have to admit Toyota is winning me over, both the Landcruiser and 4runner have been solid trucks. I'll be there on 3/30. Look forward to meeting you guys.

Hello I am New
Just moved to Fort Dix, New Jersey. Look forward to learning and experiencing as much as possible. I just got a new 4X4 pick up and can't wait to get it out there.
love to do / try anything outdoors fishing, hunting, driving. and am open to any information or ideas that will create an opportunity.
 
My name is Mark.

I live in Fort st John, Canada. Originally from Vancouver Island where I did lots of off-road camping (nothing extreme), hiking etc.
I'd say im a novice to overlanding, slowly setting up my rig and trying to find the time to get out there and explore!
I have a fairly stock 2002 Nissan Xterra (has a few issues that need sorting) and a 2018 Ram 1500 which I am debating on turning into an overland rig (its currently my dd, and work vehicle)

I look forward to getting your guys advice and ideas toward my future endeavors!
Thanks
