Thought I checked in here, but I don't see a post anywhere from myself.

Live in northwest Wisconsin. I am new to overlanding. Most of my outdoor vacations are spent solo canoe tripping in wilderness settings far north in MN and Canada. I got into overlanding late 2019 as I happened upon Venture4wd on YouTube and liked the idea of remote travel that was a little more comfortable (I am getting old! Gonna be 47 this year).

Currently leasing a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, might get a Bronco next year when the lease is up. I don't do any technical stuff of course, but like driving down fire-lanes, two-tracks, forest roads...etc... nothing too crazy but enough to get me away from pavement and a little remote. It's a stock vehicle, but I did recently put some TOYO Open Country A/T III 225/65/17 on and wow what a huge difference.

Hey guys, my name is Conrad. I am moving up to Madison, WI end of this month from Marietta, GA. I have a 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad. So far all the mods I have done to it are an Icon Stage 4 2.5in Lift, CBI overland bar bed rack, SwitchPros 9100 and some Rigid Ditch Lights. I am pretty new to overlanding and have only done a few pretty moderate trails here in GA. Looking to do the Trans Wisconsin trail at some point before the snow comes, but also hoping to do some winter offroading. I am pretty big into road biking as well. So if anyone has any good routes for either road biking or offroading let me know!

Look forward to seeing you guys out there!

Another from Manitowoc here.
Just joined today. My wife has been loving what we call, "Truck Camping" that we did a few years ago to escape a snowstorm here. So last year I bought a dedicated Tacoma for outdoor pursuits, added a cap, sleeping platform, awning, etc.
We also use a weatherproof screen house with full sides to supplement.

Also love backpacking, wilderness paddling, canoe camping, general hiking and anything else outdoors. I've been an outdoors type person all my life.

New guy in Germantown/Milwaukee. Currently driving a pampered '11 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman. Having just discovered the overlanding phenomenon, the truck and I have been having discussions, and it tells me it needs more adventure in its life. Get a level on it to start with and see where life takes it. It's currently wearing 33s. I think it'd look mighty fine with some classy accessories and some 35s.



My other adventure vehicle is a '93 Maule MX-7-180A.

Do you keep your Maule at Hartford airport?

Sounds amazing. Anyone have any good ideas for off-grid or dispersed camping nearby or in Wisconsin?

Other than the usual haunts, being the National Forests, Campendium has a few places on their maps that point in the right direction.
Awesome, thanks so much.

I downloaded the OnX Off-road App for dispersed camping and boondocking locations. It's a good app I guess but it relies on people like us to update it so it's pretty light around here.

Just getting started so I guess I need to adopt the adventure lifestyle and just go out and find some spots.

Hey guys, far SE Wisconsin here. I'm just a beginner at all this, but I'm looking forward to learning a lot and heading out as often as I can. I have a 2015 Subaru Forester. I've done a lift, wheels and tires, skid plates, few lights, new roof rack and bunch of other smaller stuff. Hopefully I'll see some of you out there!
