We need a place to post our random member spottings... here it is:

While traveling from New Mexico to Tennessee I was keeping a sharp eye out for any overland rigs to wave at... to my disappointment I didn't have much luck until I pulled into a random gas station near the TN/AL state line.
With the plea for "potty... Potty... POTTY!" from the back seat, I had the pedal down for the next available bathroom to avoid another wet car seat incident. As I pulled into an empty parking spot I noticed a roof rack on top of a clean Tundra in the slot next to us. As we began to jettison the toddler, I took a second look and there it was; an OB badge slapped on the side of that bad boy!

Turns out, the rig belonged to member 0331 @Fieldnstreamer . Naturally we spent some time talking rigs, overlanding trips, and Overland Bound before rolling north to finish our trek back home for Christmas.

What are the odds?! Has anyone else had one of these chance encounters? Post 'em up! (Pics or it didn't happen ;) )

Sweet idea! I always keep my eyes posted looking for cool rigs. It seems here local to me all we have are these young punks that just wanna see how muddy they can get their Jeeps and how long they can go between washes lol

Wasn't there a map at one point on the ob.com page? I remember way back when i tried to add my location to it but it always sent me to a 404 error page. Just wondering if that has been done away with or was it moved?

Now that you mention it, I kind of remember something like that. @administrator What did you do with it? lol @dmurph1996 Where do you live? Your reply time shows as today (12/29/15) at 4:50pm. It's 1pm est right now.

I'm going to have to keep my eyes open. I know @jordanbrooks spotted my rig when my lady was driving it. He messaged me all excited like as if he had spotted Bigfoot. lol I would be excited to spot others as well.
