    Welcome to Overland Bound @orange_glo! The Portland/Vancouver area is filled with lots of active members, so meeting your neighbors and getting on the trails won't be too hard.

    I highly recommend heading over to our NorthWest Region forum [link] to find out more about what is going on in the area. I know that there was a little bit of a break from the monthly meetups because the previous organizer had to address some personal issues. Hopefully, someone new will step up and get the group together again.

    Something that may be of interest to you is to join in on the weekly Overland Bound Ham Radio Net which takes place on Friday evenings via Echolink [link].

    Events are also posted on the Rally Point system [link], so you might want to check that out as well.

    I look forward to seeing you out there! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up on the forums: @Jedi.

    Name is Brett and I am a new member here from Kansas with my 99 Land Cruiser and a few Jeeps. I've been exploring backroads since my first trip to Colorado in 1999 and wouldn't label myself as experienced since I learn something new every trip.

    Hey everyone! I'm new to OB but not exactly new to overlanding, I've been doing it for a few years now without even knowing that it's a thing! So I'm super greatful to see lots of other people interested in it as well. My rig, I currently have a 2016 f150 ecoboost 2.7L wit a 6.5' bed. I have made a few mods to it, I really enjoy making things myself so a lot of my upgrades are DIY and there are a lot more builds to come in the future!!!

    I know there are a lot of places to go in norcal, I'm from Grass valley but currently live in Chico, if anyone knows of a cool 2 or 3 day route that goes between some of the small mountain towns on back roads that's what I'm trying to find for a good weekend trip!!

    HI everyone, Im Hobie and im new to overlanding. Avid camper, mountain biker, rock climber. Ive always left my truck at the lot near the trailhead but im looking to go deeper into the woods and the world. just replaced my old ranger with a new forester and put a rtt on top. the wife and i are planning a dozen trips this spring summer & fall and were excited to become part of this.

    i live in northern california. i drive a 2019 forester that is stock, aside of my cb, tepui rtt, first aid kit, and fire suppression stuff.

    im trained in EMR, CPR+, BLS and fire suppression and always stop to help those in need.

    looking forward to meeting some of you and getting my tires dirty.

    From a fellow Houstonian and fellow '18 4Runner TRD Offroad owner, welcome! I haven't been horribly active here but always great to see some local interest in building and adventuring in 4Runners!
    I'm always keen and curious about what others are doing and building. Let me know if you wanna compare notes!

    Hi everyone!

    My fiancee and I moved from the East Coast to Idaho this past year and bought a truck (2018 GMC Canyon) to explore the backroads and mountains here in our new home state. We were drawn here for the hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing, and mountain biking. So, getting a truck and exploring the miles of forest roads Idaho has to offer just seemed natural to us.

    My only offroad experience is riding along in the San Juan Mountains around Silverton, CO; where I am part owner of a small hotel (The Avon). I'm not ready for that kind of exposure in the driver's seat, but am looking forward to exploring the less traveled roads and finding remote places for wilderness adventure. I will generally be knocking around Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah, and Southwest Colorado.

    Where in Idaho? I went to college in Pocatello, so that state has a very fond place in my heart.

    Welcome to the Pacific Northwest and to Overland Bound @OutsideSeth! Idaho is an incredible place for someone who loves the outdoors, as is all of the PNW.

    There are a number of great overlanding events occurring throughout the PNW, so I recommend checking out the Overland Bound NorthWest Region forum [link] for meetups and to get to know your “neighbors”. In fact, there is a long standing thread [link] of other Southwest Idaho Overland Bound Members that you might want to drop in on. @GHCOE can probably share more on what is going on.

    Events are also posted on the Rally Point system [link], so you might want to check that out as well.


    I look forward to seeing you out there! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up on the forums: @Jedi.

    Hello,

    We are The Overlanding Aggies out of Houston. We recently bought our new ride a 2017 JKU and cannot wait to get onto the trail. We are hoping through this new hobby/lifestyle that we get outdoors and do more camping, see new parts of the country, and of course make some new friends.

    We look forward to meeting you all and the good times ahead!

    Hi everyone,

    New to Overland Bound, but a long-time admirer. I was one of those kids who grew up "overlanding" without knowing the name for it. I've loved the wilderness my whole life, and look forward to nothing more than passing that passion on to my own kids.

    I look forward to being a part of this community, and seeing you all out in the sticks!
