Hi all!

Kaylee and Mike here. We’re in Surprise, AZ.
Our 2010 Toyota Tacoma TRD sport 4x4 introduced us to this lifestyle a couple years ago and we’ve been slowly building up gear and experiences traveling all over Arizona. We camp/offroad just about every weekend here. Check out IG @theterkwiththesnerk to explore our state with us

Good Morning all,
My name is Ron Watford and I’m from Evans, Georgia. I have a 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. I’ve been wanting this platform for years and finally, things fell into place. I can’t wait to get it off the pavement.
My Dad and his buddies didn’t call I “Overlanding” when I was a kid, the just called it off-roading and camping. We went a lot when I was little but I got away from it until I joined the Navy. That’s when I unofficially raced on-road vehicles....off-road...in reverse...until they broke. (Disclaimer: This post is not an admission of guilt to he destruction of government property.) Looking forward to meeting you out on the trails...

About time you finally showed up =)

Hi everyone,

I'm Jordan with Jasper Outdoors (which isn't really anything other a new personal blog at this point, but we'll see what happens). I moved to Casper, Wyo. in November of 2018 for work, and I'm originally from Jacksonville, FL. I have just started getting into the overland scene, and I try to get outdoors every weekend. There are many beautiful places in the state and I discover something new each time I head out. You can see where I've been by checking out @JasperOutdoors. My college roommate and best friend (Matt) is working on finding a job out here by the end of the year. He's got a 2019 SR5 and I've got a 2018 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x. Looking forward to being a part of the overland community.

Greetings all.

I'm Eric and currently live in Maryland. Used to off-road, backpack, hike and camp a lot when living in AZ, CO and NM. Got away from it after moving east with young kids. Started to get back into camping again a couple of years ago and did my 1st "overland" trip last year with my son ... a good old fashioned 4K+ mile road trip to the Rockies. Love the outdoors and exploring new areas. Current set up is a 2017 Tacoma with upgraded suspension, sliders, skids and a bed full of camping and fishing gear.

Hi my name is Marc and I am from Central NC area. My 9 year old and I are trying to do more expedition trips.

The Current rig is a 2015 RAM 1500 Hemi with complete factory skid plates, a 10k Smittybilt winch and Ko2 tires. I have a small 3 inch lift waiting to be installed.

Looking to put a better bumpers on the beast and a expedition rack over the bed for a tent.

I have off road experience but not much experience in setting up a truck for expedition trips, I am looking for any input I can get and look forward to learning as much as I can.

Here is a beauty and the beast.

Hey everyone! I am Dennis. Joining your community from Toronto, Ontario.
Very new to overlanding, but ready to learn everything I need to learn to start.
Funny enough - just sold my Mercedes to get something a little more appropriate for outdoors lifestyle - 2019 Jeep JL 4d.
Stock for now =)

See you out there!

We’re in surprise too! We have a smittybilt xl tent that you’re welcomed to take a look at to get some ideas of what you like and don’t like about them.
