Hello everery one ! My name is Sebastien I am from Quebec , Canada, Laurentide region. I am really new to overlanding , I was more of a motorcycle guy , on and off road . I just bought a 2016 Subaru Forester , I know not the typical choice but since this is my daily driver I needed the fuel "economy". The rig is stock for now but a lift kit is already on order , what so ever the Forester is much more capable then I tought for a little SUV. Anyways hope to see you in the great outdoors , adventure is nessesery !

Ps: sorry for the bad english , not my first language.View attachment 120382View attachment 120383View attachment 120384

Hello all,
I am John from Haddonfield NJ
We have had a 1999 Discovery 1 which we have been restoring and upgrading for the trails. We get out to the Island Beach State Park once in a while to fish and we are looking to find new trails in the pines and meet up with others that are in the area. We attend a few Land Rover events each year (Muddy Chef Challenge and Winter Romp) would like to see what else we can add to our calendar! I have an instagram account with a bunch of pictures of the trucks that I owned and the adventures we have been on. Rescue.Rover is the account name. Thanks for the add, and look forward in meeting up on the trails..

Hello,
My name is Al and I am in Washington State. I have followed several YouTube channels such as TrailRecon and Lifestyle Overland. I started with a 2000 Cherokee XJ, then went to a two door JK and now I have a ‘13 Unlimited Rubicon. I am guessing the previous owner did some overlanding because this Jeep is set up nicely with lots of mods. Even has a Vector Off-road dock. Anyway, I am a novice overlander. I have done some camping and looking to just explore more. I have made it to the Northwest Overland Rally in Plain,WA. a couple of times and it’s great. The people, the rigs, all very welcoming. I hope to get out and learn some more.
Welcome!

Welcome Josh! What part of WA? I'm on Whidbey Island (2 hours north of Seattle).

Here are a few tips to get you started:
-Check out the local region's forums for events and meetups in your area. Like the meetup at Samish Overlook on November 1st!
-Check out the Rally Point system and the Member Map for events and other people around you. Super helpful.
-Our region also has a FB page.

If you need anything, feel free to PM me or tag me in the forums at @Gabriel Bozeman.

Cheers!

Hey guys! I'm Zach and I am In northern Colorado. I'm just getting into this whole overloading thing. I've got an '03 Ford Ranger that is my daily driver and a tent. I've done plenty of camping, including backpacking trips, and of course family car camping trips when I was a kid. So on that side of things, I'm pretty experienced, but I'm really looking forward to getting out of the Parking Lot campgrounds afforded by many National Parks and try getting to places that require, lets say, a bit higher ground clearance.

Hello All! Excited to be a member! I look forward to connecting!

My operating base is in Hillsborough North Carolina
My current rig is a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport S. Completely factory except for the K02's... :) I ordered it with the 6 speed manual transmission. Love it but miss my FJ80...
My Overlanding experience is I have been camping since I was a child with my family. I have been off roading for most of my driving life as well and I'm old... (45) I would say that I am a solid Novice. Ha!

Cheers!!

Greetings! I’m excited to take my very limited overland experience to the next level. In the past I’ve used a very lightly modified (more for general off-road performance/capability) 99 4Runner SR5 for “vehicle based camping” in the past. Loved every minute of it - but ran short of time and funds.
I am now the proud owner of a stock 2019 4Runner Off Road Premium w/KDSS and have a list of performance mods in the works/plans, along with a new focus on legitimate overlanding gear/capability.
Based in the SF Bay Area - love areas like Death Valley, Yosemite, etc. Currently looking for new places/ways to expand my knowledge/experience.
