Howdy all,

I‘m Vince. I enjoy getting lost... literally... and finding my way back. Since leaving WA 4 years ago... I’ve done little to no off road exploring.

I am currently working on building up my 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD ORP.

We’re currently in Illinois awaiting retirement in a few more years and trying to figure where to plant ourselves...... back in the PNW or down east????? The mountains are always calling name....

Hello Fennis, Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @jcgraves3 is your closest member representative.
To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).
Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.
Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.
Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.
Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.
Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.
Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.
Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.

Looking forward to joining the group, I own an FJ40 here in Idaho
Welcome to the family. I own an FJ40 and live over here in Central Oregon. Unfortunately, my beloved rig is with a fabricator back in CA getting several new mods. Long story why it is in CA and not OR. It will be here soon enough for me to enjoy all the trails around Central Oregon. Be Safe and stay adventurous.

I used to live in Canyon City and worked for Mike Apple. I have family there in CC, Westcliff, Penrose, and Colorado Springs Still.
You have a lot of great places to explore just out of town. I used to love going out Redrock Road and also over to the hog backs before that became illegal.

Hi All!

I'm Josh, I recently moved to San Jose, CA from the Dallas, TX Area.

Rig is a 2016 Tacoma DCLB, pretty well outfitted...only armor I don't have yet is a rear bumper as I have yet to lose my stock bumper on the trail...

Been overlanding for 4 years now. I enjoy getting out off the beaten path and my travels have led me to take up photography as a hobby to try and capture all of these beautiful places...the forum won't let me upload any good quality photos due to size limitations, so here's a quick iPhone shot on my recent snowboarding trip in the Truckee area overlooking Donner lake.

I'll be taking my HAM tech test in about a month, so no call sign as of yet.

I'm lookin forward to exploring more in California as there's lots within a reasonable drive vs when I was living in Dallas.
Welcome to Overland Bound Josh,
You will find it much easier to get out and find adventure in the west.
Don't hesitate to message your Regional Director @Narbob if you have any questions.
For local information about trips and meet-ups contact your NorCal Member Representative; Bay Area @PapaDave

Welcome from Pueblo West, @Justinwrains.

We just had a trip in your area a week ago. Wish you could have been there!

Have you ever been to Texas Creek OHV during the winter? I was thinking of planning a Feb trip there.
