Hi my name is Marc and I am from Central NC area. My 9 year old and I are trying to do more expedition trips.

The Current rig is a 2015 RAM 1500 Hemi with complete factory skid plates, a 10k Smittybilt winch and Ko2 tires. I have a small 3 inch lift waiting to be installed.

Looking to put a better bumpers on the beast and a expedition rack over the bed for a tent.

I have off road experience but not much experience in setting up a truck for expedition trips, I am looking for any input I can get and look forward to learning as much as I can.

Here is a beauty and the beast.

Hey everyone! I am Dennis. Joining your community from Toronto, Ontario.
Very new to overlanding, but ready to learn everything I need to learn to start.
Funny enough - just sold my Mercedes to get something a little more appropriate for outdoors lifestyle - 2019 Jeep JL 4d.
Stock for now =)

See you out there!

Hi everyone new member here.
Jason W.
I drive a 2017 tacoma TRD off-road,
Located in surprise,az
I’m new to overlanding, but love to camp and love exploring, Fly fishing, and hiking the out doors of AZ.
Also looking at getting my first RTT for the tacoma so any advice on make and models would be helpful.
We’re in surprise too! We have a smittybilt xl tent that you’re welcomed to take a look at to get some ideas of what you like and don’t like about them.

We are still new to this but we either tank my Silverado or my Wifes TJ. We are still debating on the setup we can utilize the most since it's my wife, me and our 4 year old daughter. Love the forum!
We are tent campers right now but we have camped most of our lives.

Greeting all,
I'm excited to join the community. I look forward to sharing my adventures and learning a ton from all of you. I'm located in St. Louis, MO so I'll have to put some miles in to get to most of the places I'd like to explore. I recently picked up my new Jeep Gladiator and have started to plan my build. Can't wait to share my build and get insight from group on what direction I want to take it. Here a quick shot of her repping the home of the Stanley Cup Champs.

Welcome to Overland Bound, @achiprez! I am actually in Vancouver, WA this week for work. It is a nice city and you are SO right about being close to all sorts of adventure. There are a number of members in the Vancouver/PDX area, so I recommend heading over to our Overland Bound NorthWest Region forum [link] for meetups and to get to know your neighbors. Events are also posted on the Rally Point system [link], so you might want to check that out as well.

I look forward to seeing you out there! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up on the forums: @Jedi.
