Hi folks, just found the sight. I built a teardrop style trailer last year and now I'm thinking about building an overland trailer. I really like the look of the Teton X Hybrid, the tilt up ceiling seems like a great solution to give some interior privacy for showering or a bathroom.

My son is doing college remotely this year because of COVID so he "borrowed" my teardrop and our new Subaru to explore the country (lucky dog). He's been on the road about 80 days now, currently in Durango CO. Still wants to get to the west coast and Yellowstone, not much time left as I want my trailer back by the middle of July.

Hubby and I recently moved to the *Colorado* flatiron foothills after 23 years of wanting to live here! Youngest child will finish college in a year. We bought a hard shell rooftop tent and put it on our *2017 Subaru Outback* last May. *Very little* overlanding experience and our little Subie isn’t very tricked out but we yearn for the open road leading us to forest and water to relish in nature and just “be”. Hiking, hammock-time, writing...

Currently interested in any Outback cargo info / builds... I’d hire someone to help us out. Looking to have a couple of drawers the width of the cargo area which will raise the cargo “floor” height and then have the solar powered cooler on one side... Also looking for recommendations about how to find BLM land.

Thanks for being a community and welcoming newbies!

I am a new member to the overland community. I am located in the Pittsburgh, PA area since 2013. Before 2013 We lived in Pretoria South Africa. Work brought me and my family to the USA and we liked it so much that we decided to stay permanently. I am still in the process to build up my rig. Currently I have a 2017 Ford Explorer with a Conqueror UEV 390 off road trailer. I have a Bronco Wildtrack on order and expect to get it by fall this year. I am new to Overlanding in North America and have been looking forward to it for a long time. We have experience in Overlanding (Safari) in Southern Africa where I used to have a Land Rover Defender 110 with a Echo 3 off road trailer. Thank you for the opportunity to join this community. I am looking forward to get actively involved and looking for meetups and rallies in Western Pennsylvania.

Hi everyone, I've been overlanding for a few years now but still feel brand new to it! I moved to Colorado last year and excited to get out and explore and hopefully meet up with some of you. I drive a quicksand 4Runner TRD pro that is currently undergoing a lot of upgrades. Here's an old pic of the rig on White Rim.

what’s up everyone? New to this forum. I’ve been camping my whole life, and off roading Off and on since high school. Never got too heavily in to it because surfing and mtb took up most of my time. My wife and I haven’t done much camping the last few years because of babies. At a point now where we want to get back into it, especially in remote, difficult to access areas. I have an 02 dcsb Tacoma. I bought it my senior Year of high school, 14 years ago. It recently has been retired as a daily driver and is being built up as a capable off road rig. This picture is before mods started, but I’m horrible at taking progress photos. 97E1D904-1372-49D3-B828-2B700BBB657C.jpeg97E1D904-1372-49D3-B828-2B700BBB657C.jpeg

Hey everyone, new to the forum and overlanding. However I'm far from new to the world of off road and building capable vehicles. Just picked up a pretty clean 78 Bronco ranger xlt which I will be building as my overlanding rig, I am beyond excited to get it up and running so I can get out there and start having adventures and meeting new and interesting folks in the community.

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.
Welcome from NE Oklahoma John!
