Great place to be. My parents lived in Pagosa for about a dozen years and I always enjoyed going to visit.

Hello everyone! I just came across Overlanding this year while on a trip to Peru.. My wife is from Peru and we go back to visit a lot. This year specifically we went to a part of the country called ICA where we explored a part of the desert. My wife and I have three children (14, 10 and 8), the adventure of Dune Buggies and Sand Boarding was amazing! But for me, the journey was the adventure. I met many people that were backpackers on that trip and one of them shared with me what Overlanding was... I must say, my life was deeply impacted! Being that we love to camp, the idea of being able to get our kids out in the outdoors in nature, discovering and enjoying life, is a high priority for us. I have a Jeep Liberty KK as a second vechile, pretty much stock. I don't know much about cars, but I'm learning as much as I can as fast as I can... I just upgraded the tires to Cooper 225/75r16, put on some extra lights and a roof rack. We started with two day's of heading out to PA (we are from NJ). Little by little, our plan is to stretch out the journey longer and further. I know I have tons to learn and hope to learn from all of you... I really don't have any friends that are into the lifestyle, so hopefully I can meet some local groups that I can join in the adventure... Blessings!

Hey all, new to the forum.

Currently driving a '16 GMC Sierra 1500, lifted on 35s. (looking to downsize soon)
Granite State, USA (New England area for you non-east coast peeps)
Pretty novice to the whole overlanding thing. Done a decent amount of camping/hiking out west but not too much out east. Hoping to change that soon.

Hi how is everyone doing? I have been a bit of an adventure nut but just getting into overlanding now that I have the free time.

I'm based in Appleton WI

I run a 17 Tundra that doesn't have to many mods but halls the camping gear nice.

Hey everyone my names Chase, I have glanced around the forum and I am looking forward to learning and exploring!

Currently living in Idaho but originally from North Carolina.

I have explored some in my short life so far but I hope with being in Idaho and my new rig I will get out more! Overlanding will be new to me so I look forward to what is ahead!

So my rig is the new 2019 Ford Ranger XLT FX4. I already have a plan for this and hopefully soon it will start to take shape! My name for the truck is Walker Texas Ranger because, well, Chuck Norris. Also my middle name is Walker and it is a Ranger.

(Photo sucks but its all I have currently)

Hey there OB community, I'm Colin, hailing from San Diego CA. I'm into backpacking and hiking, and have seen a lot of interest in overlanding over the last few years. I've got an 04 ford ranger 2WD that I'm building up. Not looking to crawl, but definitely plan on being able to handle some easy to moderate trails. I will eventually get a 4wd when my current vic moves to the great beyond, but that isn't happening any time soon. Not much off road experience in my ranger, but have in other parts of my life. Currently away from home on a work trip, so no pictures of my truck available right now.

Hi, iv got a Toyota landcruiser 90 series that's going to be a temporary toy (waiting for the right 80 series to turn up). Iv (wife's) got a Toyota estima 4wd(smaller previa) that's waiting for a 2" lift and tyres mainly for looks but if it performs well its getting a lsd in the rear and possibly the front.

Iv been playing with 4wd since I was little and it's something that has never left me, iv had a bunch of cars but all ways find myself going back to 4x4. Hope to learn from the right people

Thanks
Bingham
