Adventure awaits, exploration is a must, very much excited to be part of the Overland Bound Community!

Location: San Diego, Ca.
Rig: 2016 Jeep JKU Rubicon Hardrock - Black
Experience: First overland trip was from San Diego to Montana and back. Safely! It was an, "experience". :tearsofjoy:

Hi all,

My name is Cal, I'm from Wisconsin, and I'm looking to get into overland camping with my family.

My wife is on board as it's a hybrid style of camping that departs from my preferred style, backpacking.

So, I probably won't be rock climbing or going through giant mud pits but I'm looking forward to putting my truck to the test and outfitting it to meet its capabilities.

I'm excited to join a forum like this one, and i'm hoping to meet people in my area to hit the trails with. I'm also hoping to meet people nation/worldwide and chat about the rigs they use and the build and parts behind those rigs. Thanks for having me Overland Bound!

Hello everyone! I'm here in mid-state South Carolina in the heat and humidity. I was up on the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday in the clouds and it was nice. I had to take my new RTT for it's first test run and things went well. I got to scout some fishing spots for when the crowds (school starts back) subside. I hope to make it to Colorado and surrounding areas at some point in the not too distant future. Researching that is how I found this site. There is lots of experience and knowledge here and I am sure I will have lots of questions. I am excited to get to exploring this site!

Hey Guys,
Been following OLB on insta for a couple years now and finally decided to join.
I have a few years experience off-roading around the East Coast, as well as in Mexico and Pakistan.
Looking forward to getting integrated and doing some overlanding!

Hello All,

Name is Rich and I am just getting into overlanding, and I look forward to the exploration and adventure that awaits! My father is also on here - @stokescr . He is much more experienced - and equipped - for overlanding than me.

I live in Murrieta, CA, which is about an hour north of San Diego.

I drive a 2018 Tacoma Off Road DCSB. Upgrades to the truck include (recently) King 2.5 EXT coilovers, Total Chaos UCAs, ICON AAL, SCS Ray10 wheels, and BFG KO2 285/75/R16.
Now that I have the suspension upgrades out of the way, I look forward to build up the rig for overlanding next.

I am an Overlanding Novice, but hope to change that soon!

Hello Everyone. I reside down in Houston Tx. I have a friend who is a current member tell me about this community. Came over here really liked what I saw and joined. I am a total beginner, I'm still looking for a rig. But I have been in the outdoors my entire life, I love camping, hiking, riding dirt bikes. Just being one with nature, it cures the soul. My sister and brother in law have been Rock Crawling/ Overlanding out in Arizona for the better part of 11 years. I go on trips with them when I can and was bit by the bug. I look forward to talking with y'all.

Good day everyone
Thanks for the add I look forward to interacting with the group. I am a Electrician by trade, but have worked as a civilian inside the local fire department supervising all new construction inside the city. I also help with fire investigation and rapid damage assessment after large natural disasters. I have 3 kids 12,6,2. My wife is a stage for cancer survivor so that drives our want to expose our children to the world. I grew up living in the outdoors hunting and hiking. So we are building our base family adventures off that.
Again thanks for the add.
We are currently building our 2016 Ram 3500 MegaCab to meet out needs until We can get a third car ( 4Runner)

Welcome from across the sound! Make sure you check out the local region (NorthWest) forums for events and meetups. Also might want to check the Rally Point system for events. I hope to make it back out to the Peninsula to explore more. Would you be interested?

Hi Gabe,

Might be fun sometime. I am a Pastor when not playing outdoors so I have a really tight schedule I am already booked until September Elk hunting! So not a lot of room but I appreciate the idea of it and maybe I will find some spot to do a trip or two. Just getting into it but I will keep it mind! Thanks for the warm welcome!

Hi everyone. Currently in Salt Lake City, but may be moving south soon. I drive a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo LS. I got it for the snow early last year and soon discovered that 4wd is awesome and has so much potential! I'm slowly building up the rig.
Only a few weekend adventures/day trips under my belt, but I'm excited to be a part of this community and am looking forward to many more adventures to come!
