Thought I would update this thread to hopefully get it started again.

My name is Ryan, and I am from California but now live in Dayton Ohio while I am in law school. My fiance and I just recently got into overlanding and are excited to be going much more this summer! We would love to meet anyone else who is local and loves the outdoors and would like to plan a trip in the near future. Let us know!
In Columbus also trying to meet people I am leaving for Moab in a few months an looking to do some prepping prior so let me know if you have any plans would be great to find some others I have a Jeep JLECE5C38F-AFDD-4AB6-AF04-15BE481F47AF.jpeg ECE5C38F-AFDD-4AB6-AF04-15BE481F47AF.jpeg

Hey man, fellow Ohio transplant also new to overlanding here. It looks like there’s some cool trails down in Kentucky. Anyone interested in a meetup at Daniel Boone national forest this summer?

Just downloaded the Mohican gps route going SE. Looks like it nearly meets one of the TAT connections.



My Delorme is showing a bunch of ''unimproved roads'' in Mconnelsville. Maybe that's why the track ended there?

I'm Scott and live in a western suburb of Cleveland. Do a lot of "glamping" with my wife, who likes the creature comforts, lol. On my own, I prefer to get into places a camper can't be drug into. Sleep under the awning when it's nice enough, throw on the awning room when it's not.

It ended there due to it being day 1 of my Ohio Backroads Tour. Day 2 is AEP-hocking.

I'm working with another member on a circular route for OH,WV,PA,IN.

Check out Facebook group WEEKEND WANDERERS and Midwest Overlanders. I post my trips there since this forum doesnt always update notifications..i just found a message that's more than a week old.

Thanks, I will. I appreciate it.

I'm going to try the Mohican route south this fall, soon. Looks fullsize friendly. Can't wait to get flares on the truck to keep gravel down.

Hey. Welcome. I’m in Cincy too. A bit tricky to find stuff locally but heading over east a bit to Wayne National Park or south into KY has been fun. Or south Indy isn’t too bad towards Bloomington. We should grab a beer, swap war stories and talk shop a bit.

Hit me up if you’re interested.

The Gf and I are definitely going over Labor Day weekend. We will probably trail ride most of Saturday and some of Sunday with some hiking and general wandering mixed in all along the way. Definitely hit me up if you want to meet up on the trail Saturday.
