View attachment 195675Hello Everyone, I am John. Here is a picture of My Rig.

Location: I am located in Omaha, Arkansas close to the Missouri Border
Rig: 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK
Overlanding Experience: I would consider myself new to overlanding. I have attended several events in the Midwest but mostly as a Vendor. I am the Owner of Long Creek Overland Apparel Company. I am not new to camping, or off-roading, I am new to combining the two for a whole new adventure.

I look forward to possibly meeting up with like minded adventurers in the area.
Hello John, welcome to Overland Bound, nice Jeep.

Hey everyone!
I’m Larry. I’ve been an avid outdoorsman for years but started Overlanding about 2 years ago. I have mostly owned first generation broncos but got into jeeps a few years ago. My current build is a 2000 Jeep Cherokee XJ.
I still consider myself a novice and I’m excited about getting to know everyone!
Hello Larry, welcome to Overland Bound.

Hello , Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @Sandpoint Steve is your closest member representative.
To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).
Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.
Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.
Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.
Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.
Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.
Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.
Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.

My name is Tyler.

1) Birmingham, AL
2) 100 series Land Cruiser. Recently bought it from my dad who bought it new in 2003.
3) I am new to off roading and I look forward to building up my land cruiser. I am a pretty avid cyclist (mtn & road), so I look forward to building a good camping vehicle that I can drive around the southeast to camp and cycle.

Glad to be apart of OB as it will be a good resource for me to learn from experienced overlanders.
Its good to see someone else from Birmingham.

Hello All!
John Fortney from NE Missouri. I am a superintendent and have been exploring out of our Ford Explorer, but will be transitioning to a Suboverland Rig, 1994 GMC Suburban. We pick it up in Idaho at the end of May! I can't wait to post pictures of my new ride!

Hey y'all--I'm Bryan; I actually made an account a few years ago and forgot about it. Finally registered to become an OB member and wanted to become a bit more active to see what might be going on in my area and see what I can learn from others on the board. Located in DFW, TX; more to the northeast of Dallas near Richardson. Started to get back into camping and specifically vehicle based exploration about 5 years ago when I bought a 4th gen 4Runner; it really ignited a passion I didn't know I had. My wife and I are trying to make it a goal to visit every national park and see the beauty and diversity of this country (though I know a lot of them we won't be wanting to drive to). The 4Runner that started it all just got sold last week to make room for a new build on my 200 series Land Cruiser which we picked up at the beginning of the month. Look forward to being here!

Hello Bryan, welcome (back) to Overland Bound. Driving the LC to all the parks would not be such a bad thing to do, in my opinion.

Hello Steve, welcome to Overland Bound, stinks hearing about the loss of your cabin.
