Hello,
I'm Michelle Wilson from Las Vegas, NV. I am a newbie with respect to Overlanding but not new to camping and the Great Outdoors. My rig is currently being built, 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat 4x4, hopeful for delivery mid August. For now, I will be researching and reading on how to customize my rig and where to go and meet up with like minded people.
Welcome to Overland Bound!
We are currently working on a meetup in the LV area, keep checking the forum for updates.

Hello everyone!

My name is Patrick and o drive a 1995 Toyota 4Runner. It is equipped with the 3.0 V6 and now a manual transmission, I swapped the out for the failing automatic. I have plans for swapping a newer 3.4 V6 from the 96-04 Toyota’s. The 4Runner will soon have a 4inch lift and 33x12.50s in the next 6 months or so. I have goals of building a off road capable teardrop trailer. I have a few years of off road driving but haven’t done any in the past 6 years or so. I’ve been slowly, and I mean slowly building the 4Runner and will hopefully be exploring all over western Washington before I PCS. I’m in the Navy and I’m located on

Whats up my dudes, new to Overland Bound and looking to get out a lot more. I've done a few overland trips but nothing too technical. Most of the trip I've taken are to the National Parks and therefore are very accessible but I want to go to more remote locations. My rig is a 2017 Jeep Wrangler and I'm located in Southern California, so getting out is a necessity. I'm looking forward to meeting yall on the trail 20190611_095015.jpg

Welcome Tony, you should check out the OC overland bound meet up every first Saturday of the month. It's a cool place to meet up with other overlanders, get some ideas for your rig and to plan trips.

Welcome aboard Patrick! Glad to have you as part of the Overland Bound family. You have a great deal of wheeling to do if you want to explore all over Washington, I hope you don't plan on PCSing out of here any time soon. 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. 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.

Greetings All!

Name is Rob, and I'm looking at getting into Overlanding. I have a decent background in camping and being self-sufficient in the field.... Active Duty Army currently deployed to AFG. I look forward to trail rides and campfires with other members. Cant wait to get home start my build and make this a hobby I can share with my two young boys and beautiful wife. Hope this community is supportive of current and former military members and what we bring as individuals with mixed experiences and worldviews.

RIG: None (Searching for a 100 series LC/LX anybody selling a lightly modded rig that can be daily'd?)
LOC: Currently in deployed to AFG but live and work in the El Paso, TX area
EXP: Zero in Overlanding, I have decent amount of time with Jeep clubs on trail rides. Haven't been camping in a few years but looking forward to getting back out in the bush with the family and friends.

Cheers,

Rob

Why Overlanding?: Since family camping growing up and working in Yellowstone and Alaska in my college summers (long ago), I’ve been an outdoor enthusiast including: backpacking, hiking, outdoor landscape and wildlife photography, fishing, forest road exploration, etc. My day (and night job) takes me all over my beloved State, Arizona, and after attending local government board meetings all over the State, several years ago I started to bring my camera and hiking gear with me so I could always take the LONG way home. Now I want to go deeper in exploration with the proper gear and learn from the experienced in this forum. Looking forward to more adventures!

Finally got a chance to sign-up and glad to be on board. I'm Francis in Los Angeles. I own a 2019 Toyota 4 Runner Off Road Premium. As of now, only mod are upgrade headlights (LED high and fogs, HID low beam, LED white/red interior lights), RCI skid plates, and C4 ladder. It's a slow process in purchasing due to doing more research. Next stop will be lifting and wheel/tire upgrade. The crew from Jimhajer Garage here in L.A. are giving me pointers on this part. However, I'm hoping folks here in Overland Bound can help guide me as well. Not ashame to say this but I very much a novice to this. Looking forward to challenge myself when going to UT for work and lot of off-roading will be required. Hoping to meet any Overland Bound members in that neck of the woods as well. Thanks again and will be looking forward in talking as well as meeting some of you!
