Hello all, Name is Casey.
Live in the greater Phoenix area.
I'm married with three kids and love getting our family out to new places.
Started offroading a little over four years ago in a '96 FZJ80. Unfortunately the 80 had to leave.
We currently get out and explore in our '08 Land Rover LR3.
Started watching OB and Lifestyle-overland several years ago. Love the content.
Have been a gear head my whole life and love the outdoors and off road scene.
I'm new to forums and don't spend a lot of time logged in outside of work. Will try to be present and contribute as much as possible.
Please forgive me for any newbie mistakes.View attachment 107752
Welcome from NC. Your rig looks great, is that original paint job?

Hey everyone!

I’m Brian i am a new owner of a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser. I’m a novice to off-roading and overlanding. I’m in the northern part of Utah and I’ve been going up every Sunday to the Uinta’s exploring. If anyone in the area ever wants to meet up for any fun trips I’m totally in! Thanks all! View attachment 107750

Thanks Gabriel, I'll check those things out.

Welcome! Love the LR3! How to make that my next rig (when my P38 runs out). Make sure to make sure to check out your local region's forums for events and meetups. Might also want to check out the Rally Point system. Way to go for getting the Fam outside! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up at @Gabriel Bozeman.

Cheers!

Thanks Joel, the paint is original.(Currently 148k) That pic makes it look really good. The hood and roof are faded pretty bad and, of course, it has a good amount of pin striping.

Yeah it looks amazing in the pic, mine is in the same boat as well. Looks good from 20 or so feet away, get close and then you see all the scratches and dings.

Greetings all,

2)Born and raised in the bay area, and currently reside in Hayward, CA
3) 1987 4runner built it like a rock crawler but not with hardcore crawling in mind. 22re, duals, rock assaults, coil over front suspension, leaf's with bypass's in the rear, bumpers, cage,33s..... the list goes on.
4) Been wheeling all over for the past 15 years, still have a buggy for when I wanna get real jiggy. I just miss the yesteryear of driving my rig to the trail and having fun in general with it. Wanna check out more of the scenic non smash it up trails. Camping fishing and enjoying a ice cold beer.

Cheers
Jimbo

Hey Guys,
Been following OLB on insta for a couple years now and finally decided to join.
I have a few years experience off-roading around the East Coast, as well as in Mexico and Pakistan.
Looking forward to getting integrated and doing some overlanding!

Novice overlander here. I've done atv trail riding and mudding my whole life here in Arkansas, but I just got my first jeep (2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk) and am much more interested in overlanding and camping over finding the deepest mud holes and biggest rocks to climb with this rig. I'm starting from scratch and it's going to be a slow build for me but I'm really looking forward to it.
Hello Kyle, welcome from Oklahoma. I enjoy spending time in Arkansas, it's very pretty.
