Hello everyone! I’m Eric from Petaluma, CA, about 40min north of San Francisco. My family and I are avid mountain bikers, lover to hike and camp, etc, and love our TRD Off-road Taco. Looking to make it even more capable with everyone’s help and to build up an XJ for the Rubicon soon.

I currently daily drive a 1999 Land Cruiser. I am looking to get ‘out there further’ than just hiking and camping. Looking forward to learning more for this community. I live in The Middle TN area.

Hello!

I'm from the Northern California Area, and am familiar with camping and backpacking, and starting Overlanding.
Looking to get a Overland Vehicle, and I have a fair bit of experience with cars and mechanics so I can build it myself.

Thx

Hello,

My name is Vicki and I currently reside in Edgewood, NM about 25 miles East of Albuquerque. I've lived here since 2004. My prior locations can be found in CA, OR and NV.

I've run the fwys with my parents since before I could drive, I5, I40, I80, and Hwy 99 mostly. They started me camping when I was about 3 years old. Recently purchased a 25" Coachman BH. While I like it, its a little bigger than I want, its not as easy to just pack and go for the weekend and explore. I've camped in tents, a cab over, back of pick up, a hybrid, and now my fully enclosed RV.

I was part of NM4W for a while but my current vehicle is a bit bigger than a Jeep so I left the group, no runs for a full sized pick up. I started driving off road a few years ago when I purchased a 2016 Colorado (that vehicle kept up with the jeeps), but sold it to be able to pull a larger trailer. The Dodge Ram 1500 Crew 4x then came about. I've modded all of my vehicles (where my pay checks go) even the street ones since I was 18. Lowered/Raised etc.

I purchased my current ride in September, it's a 2019 Ford F250 Crew 4x. Its the largest vehicle every owned. I recently just purchased some 33" Mickey Thompson MTZ P3s.

Actual Overlanding experience... "Newbie"

Looking fwd to getting together and meeting you all...…..

Hello all!
Fresh to the group and excited to be here. I’m in the Houston Texas area and working on expanding my travels.
23B98513-6BFC-4AE5-8F55-D529A7FC77D9.jpeg
I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited Rubicon, she’s a little beat up and needs a few things before my big trip (Houston to Alaska) but she’s mine and very capable. I’m a beginner in the world of overlanding, moderate experience in camping, and experienced in knowing my limits off road with 12+ years of Jeeping. I’ve taken Jeeps to, Moab Utah, Ouray Colorado, Hot Springs Arkansas, and multiple off road parks in Texas a few times over but none have been in the overland way.
0D963C1E-7918-42B1-B2F2-94E54F0F4276.jpeg
So I have almost 9 months to plan my trip, prepare myself and my Jeep for my dream trip and I’m looking to pick some brains and borrow some knowledge from this group.
