Hey everyone - Justin here. Been a long time adventurer/car camping fanatic ever since the day my father picked up his brand new Toyota 4x4 p/u in 1990. I've owned 3 Toyota Trucks (2 4x4s) all of which took me beautiful locations all throughout California and Arizona. I'm now the proud owner of an 01 UZJ100 which compliments my needs quite well. I really feel like I've found the last vehicle I'll ever own...love it to the moon and back. I'm fairly experienced in vehicle dependent travel (3 to 4 day trips at least), but I'm always looking to grow and learn from others. Cheers everyone!
welcome!

Hello all,

Chris from Charlottesville, VA.
I've been offloading for over 25 years, but most of the time has been spent rock crawling or camping.
As I have gotten older, I've started spending more time wheeling alone or with 1-2 others and exploring more public trails in our area.

I've still got my crawler, a 2005 Jeep LJ that has to get towed to most spots.
I've got a 2007 JKU that I use for exploring and camping. I usually tow a homemade offload trailer based off a M101A2 as a base for myself and my two Cane Corso's, and my two teenage sons.

Some pics...



I like your JK, Welcome to the group

Hi, I'm JoKer. Im trying to get onto the overland scene. I've been interested for quite sometime now, but with my busy schedule, it's quite difficult to make time. I don't really know what else to say. Feel free to contact me for whatever.

Hi,

Location: Alberta Canada
Rig: 2012 Jeep Rubicon, 3" short arm synergy lift, 33" tires and lots more stuff
Overlanding Experience: When it comes to driving on road and off road I am very experienced, I have done lots of camping and have been "overlanding" without knowing I was doing it. I much prefer "overlanding" verses "off-roading" and I'm looking forward to learning more about this real cool activity!

Regards,
Mike aka BlackBear

Welcome to the forum. Nice Rubicon! Looking forward to seeing more of your images from Canada. Hope some day to get up there and do some overlanding.
