Hey everybody. Central albertan here, I have some of Camping experience but Im still looking to learn about Overlanding.
I have a stock 2012 jeep wrangler rubicon, with a roof rack and RTT waiting in the garage beside it for warmer weather! My Girlfriend and I are going to be driving the Alaska highway this year and can not wait to hit some trails along the way!
look forward to seeing some of you on the trail!

New guy here in Carlsbad, CA. Just moved here from out of state and currently have a few mechanicals holding me back, but i'm looking forward to getting out and exploring in the Spring and Summer.

Currently in a 72' FJ40, but that might get replaced by something more family friendly.

That’s beautiful, welcome to Overland Bound!

Hello Everyone, Exploring this planet is something that has had my attention since I was a child. I hope that I am finally in a position that I can get out there and see what there is to see. I have a very supportive wife and two daughters that will be my travel companions. We call NC home and will be taking our first trip out west this year! Current Rig '09 JKU Rubicon-lift, tires, winch, gears etc.... Fixing to move to a 4th gen 4runner (read: comfort).... I look forward to the experiences ahead.
 
Hi, my name is Brian, New Jersey, brand new to over landing, 2018 Subaru Forester, no mods lol, I just finished a small 4x7 utility trailer that I enclosed and has a roof top tent on it. I've camped for years but now I wanna try something new. Thinking about taking a small National Parks tour Memorial Day weekend/week down 81, if any body knows of any really cools pots I would be able to get too with minimal damage to my car lol let me know. Thanks for the add and looking forward to lots of cool adventures.

Outdoors, adventures, exploring, learning, teaching, sharing... I’m Truman, I have 6 year old twin boys and we love a good adventure, even if it’s not too far from home. I lost my 4th gen T4R in an unfortunate breakfast run last July and have since replaced it with 2015 WK2 that I am liking so far. It’s no Toyota but it’s gets the job done...

Bought my 2014 Xterra used back in 2016 and the first week we were scratching her up in Uwharrie National Forrest. Since then we have taken her all over and upgraded a few things. Custom bumper, 33" Duratracs, armored the bottom, rock sliders, ARB rear locker, 10lb winch up front, and suspension upgrades. Have a RTT but haven't used it yet.

Hope to see you all out there having fun.

Let me introduce myself. Tim F. here.

I consider myself a novice since most of my experience is from deer hunting in NorCal. I currently am driving a Power Wagon having just "upgraded" from my trusty FJ Cruiser. Going from the FJ to the behemoth Power Wagon is like learning to drive all over again!

I look forward to many adventures both real and vicarious. View attachment 80699

And FYI we have one of those behemoth's in our club here in the Sierra Foothills and it does just fine.

I live in Central British Columbia. My overland vehicle is a 2010 JKU, It has a 3 inch lift, 35 inch tires and a roof top tent. I explore with my wife and you can find us on the trails most weekends during the spring, summer and fall. I hibernate in the winter. This picture was taken at Abraham Lake in the Alberta Rockies.

Have a new 2018 Tacoma. It’s stock for now. Have a lift waiting to go on, doing a Jeep build right now for my son. I am very big on DIY stuff.

Hi guys. Land shark is joining the frey. I just got my 2015 tacoma sport and looking for some cool, like minded adventurers. Total rookie with no ego whatsoever. I am looking forward to some good wholesome dirty fun and developing some new skills in the off road world. Thankful to be here and wishing all an amazing 2019.

New member here from Tahoe but heading global in a couple weeks. Rented out the house, sold the cars, built up an ambo, then loaded up the family and hit the road while learning how to home school. We spent the past 5 months touring the US to get the bugs out before heading south. We're currently finishing up some repairs before entering Mexico and spending 3 years exploring Latin America.
