Hey all, here are some thoughts to kick off your week!

Overland Bound. Our Mission. What we stand for. Where we are going. While traveling recently in the Sierras, I was pondering important issues and though I should share. Why we do what we do is obvious to us, but maybe not be to all. This quick video might help. It won't answer all questions, but hits the high points. Thank you for watching!

Outfit & Explore!

I love the port of call idea. Will you put together a "volunteer" database so people traveling to locations will have someone they can reach with a need or just to socialize with a fellow overlander? I know some may be hesitant to share a cell phone number but that is truly the best way to contact someone, especially in an emergency. Put me on the list.

We'll be developing this further. There are some technical hurtles to jump. You can play with the member map here: http://www.overlandbound.com/member-locations/

We need a few things before making this real public!

Answer is yes.

Its a shame the european people arent much active on the forum. Hopefully they are in the field.

Go to home, log in, go to location, put in your location. Done, as far as I think it goes.

I have messed with that wordpress thing several times and still can't get myself on the map. *shrug*. Judging by the latency of that site, I am guessing it won't scale all that well for us. Might need to think about something lighter on it's feet than WP.

I agree with everything said. Keep up the good work. I usually find people out in the middle of no where that were not prepared. Almost every trip. Many of the spare parts, fluids, tools I carry have not been used on my rig but on others. Its important to raise awareness around planning a trip and helping other learn what it may take to complete there journey.
