Name: Jason A. Brueggen
Location: Clayton, NC
Rigs: 1996 4Runner Limited, 1997 4Runner SR5 5 speed
My family and I love exploring trails whenever possible. Both rigs capable of wheeling but the 96 is built for more difficult terrain. I'm a bit of an introvert so I don't go to meets usually if I don't know anybody but I'd love to meet some locals that don't bash each other b/c of what they drive and how they drive it.
Hello Jason and Welcome to OB! Your rig sounds awesome!

Hello Everyone,

So glad to be part of such an awesome group! I can't wait for the adventures to begin!

Location: Woodland Hills, CA
Rig: 2017 Chevy Colorado Z71
Experience: I would consider myself an intermediate off-roader. I started off-roading a few years ago when I began working for Front Runner Outfitters and now I can't stop traveling. From the Sierras to an eclipse in the Northwest, I just want to do it all.

Cheers,

Paul here - in Miami, FL.

We have a 2015 Toyota 4Runner Trail. Only upgrades so far are tires - to the BFG AT T/A KO2s in 275/70/17, and I swapped out the roof rack for an older model...the older OEM one's a bit more functional than the 5th generation. Definitely a Novice. Not much "overlanding" to be done down here per se. We typically camp with no support other than what's brought with us, but I'd hardly call that overlanding. Why am I here? KNOWLEDGE! Planning one of those "once in a lifetime" trips in Utah and there will be plenty of vehicle-only supported travel during that time. The trip is 12-18 months away. This is the typical camp rig setup...of course it will change for the trip - no trailer.

1) Picture! If you have a rig, we want to see it!
2) Location (General area is fine)
3) Rig (Year, Make, Model, etc.)
4) Overlanding Experience Background (Novice or Experienced, you're welcome here!)

Rig: '07 GX 470 Stock-ish
Skill Level: n00b

When I was a kid we went car camping a lot. I have always loved the outdoors but as life took more and more of my free time that outdoor life got less and less of my attention. Then one day it was time to get another car and I decided that car was going to allow me take my family camping where ever we could find time to... be it by off road or by travel trailer or overpacked road trip.

Hi ya, folks. New member, old guy. Come from 30 years of backpacking. Would have come sooner had I known the benefits of a toothbrush with the handle still intact, cooking real food in cast iron instead of $6 packets of flavored freeze-dried sawdust reconstituted in a wafer thin tin pot , a 3" mattress instead of a half inch thick egg crate foam pad and most especially, a real camp chair with a back and arms instead of a rock. Why didn't any of you say something sooner?
Anyway, look forward to learning a bunch from you young guinea pi, rather, outdoorsmen and women.
Hi Bill! Welcome to OB. Like the trailer, especially the license plate.

Hey everybody!
I'm new to this overlanding thing
I just decided recently (as in last week) to upgrade my '00 Outback to a more capable rig!
2" lift
Cooper AT3's
Skid plates
Front bumper
Rock rails
And hopefully (with some budget stretching) some lighting
I'm hoping to put together a build thread for it to help provide inspiration for those looking for ideas.

Cheers!
