image.jpeg Hello all, David from Nebraska.

I've done several car camping trips but have always been a canoe camper ( BWCA, rivers, etc) . Just got a 2017 Sahara and now am reading to start some more serious car camping ( overlanding adventures). We are actually leaving next weekend for 10 days of wheeling and camping in Ouray, Colorado ( I will put that down as my first overland experience)

Thanks for the expected advise as I am fairly "Green" in the motorized camping area. ( as far as my rig goes)

Hey guys, my name is Tanner(if you couldn't tell by my user name). I currently drive a 94 jeep yj, it's not a super common overland vehicle but I like different and it's very capable Offroad. I'm from Chickasha Oklahoma. I've only been "overlanding" for a couple months now, haven't done much more than day trips because I'm still fixing and building my rig. I work as a professional mechanic, and I'm an amateur photographer. My dad has owned a wrecker service since I was about ten so I have a lot of experience with recovery. Looking forward to meeting some new people and doing some wheeling!IMG_0787.JPG IMG_0412.JPG

jeep.jpg Hello from the NW,
Looking forward to learning and getting the rig out more. Have a 93 Wrangler 4.0 with 3.5" lift and 33's. I have not been out too much off road so I would consider myself a Novice. Kind of hard to take her out and play as I can't afford to break her. It's my daily driver............ :( . Need to get another rig and start setting up the Jeep for some much needed adventures.

Thanks for having me,
Jay

For years more then 20 you can say I've been overlanding by foot, also have tons of off roading through Florida/North Carolina swamps, sand and woods looking forward to putting the two together and extending the range of my adventures. Have a deep passion for solitude the back country and being a gear head. If i can use my experience to help anyone just ask. My user name is the company I started because of my passion for adventure and for the love of the HAMMOCK.

Look forward to joining up with groups meets and rides whenever possible. Cheers!

How was that second picture taken? As if the vehicle is in a spotlight?

Hi...my name is Eric and I have a problem. I like to get away where my cellphone doesn't have coverage!

Currently we camp out of my 2wd Dodge truck.

But I am almost done with my Zomburban..1988 Suburban 5.3LS swapped, NV4500, NP241, on 1-tons and H1 tires and wheels. So once its back on the road it will only be a short time till the M1101 trailer will be ready to go with it.

We live in Boyd, TX.

My experience in over-landing is limited. I have experience off-roading and recovery, and camping but not so much all together

Moved to Florida for work a few years ago. From Ohio were I actually use to go off road, camping etc. Not much in FL I think, but hope to get in hear and find something interesting. I'm going crazy here with nothing to do! Anyway, working on my FJ62 currently and will hopefully start going on some trips by early 2018. Seen a few YouTube videos and learned a great deal (online overlanding expert now!) time for getting out there.

Hello
I just joined this community and have my membership pack coming!
I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK that I am in the process of rigging out as an Overlander machine. The biggest thing is getting a roof rack so I can install my roof top tent !

I am from Prince George BC Canada. There are some fabulous places to explore in this area although there are restriction at the moment due to the fact that Central BC is burning. I am hoping next year to be able to get out and play some more!
I will post pictures later!
I am looking forward to sharing with everyone here!
