@reaver you are also a bit south of me. The calendar and map are great resources. Feel free to join us for the inland Northwest conference call on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Details are in the Rally Point. You can find it on the calendar.

New member here. The name's Brian, and I'm in Caldwell, ID. I got into overlanding after watching expedition overland on YouTube. I've always been a camper, but never contemplated traveling every day during the process.

I'm currently (read very slowly) building out my 2004 Colorado z71 into an overlanding rig.

It's mostly stock right now, but I've recently added superskiz and am hoping to add a 4" lift by the end of the year.

Were introducing my 3 year old to camping for the first time at the end of the month, since I'd like to have the whole family go on trips in a few years.

Never been much of a fan of conference calls (especially since I do several of them a week at work), but I might make an exception here. I appreciate the invite.

Hey guys! My name is Nick. I currently drive a pretty much stock 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Debating on whether to build it out or find a heavier duty platform, body on frame application(SUV or truck). I also currently work for Overland Pro Shop in Colorado Springs, CO.
Here is the Crosstrek in all her unmodded glory hehe:

Hello all,

Running a 2006 LR3 in the South Central PA area. Spend most days up on the local mountains with dog. Wife and I would like to do longer trips as soon as I complete build. Anyone done TAT?

I spent 22 years in the Army so think of myself as a bit of an #overlanding wannabe champ....hahaha. Lots of living from back of vehicle and rucksack.

Looking forward to meeting/greeting/following like minded folks. Thanks!IMG_20190522_170140_731.jpg101160

I am from Portugal, Lisbon so if you need anything from here, just tell me.
Wow, Portugal, beautiful part of the World, look forward to seeing some of your adventures, A Big Welcome from the USA

Nice ride, hey Overlanding is what you want it to be, just being outdoors and enjoying it. Don't have to go extreme rock crawling to get to remote places. I think this is what this community is all about not so much the rig, just promoting the outdoors and being good stewards while we're at it. Welcome

Just curious - What leveling kit did you go with and how is it holding up off-road? Thanks!
I went down to my local 4wheelparts store and went with a Pro Comp 2.25” level. Looks great with the bigger KO2s I went with. The level has been holding up fine. I’ve had it for about a year now. I recently got back from a trip to Northern Georgia where I was off road a bit. Nothing crazy off-road, just some back country roads to go white water rafting and to get to our cabin.

Hi! My name is Stephanie and I’m located in Bulverde, Texas. My family and I are outdoor enthusiasts and recently discovered Overlanding. Just last week we picked up the sweet girl seen in the picture. I can’t wait to discover all there is to know about the overland lifestyle and look forward to getting to know you! IMG_6202.JPG
