Good morning all,
Excited to be a part of the group and I am outfitting a Tundra Crew Cab. I am from the Ottawa Valley Canada and excited to hit the trails when I complete my build as it is taking a very long time due to equipment availability. I am in the process of looking for the OVOR, checked on GAIA, facebook group chats, now this site, messaged gravel travel numerous times and no joy. Its like this trail is a nation secret as no one wants to share information.
Welcome to Overland Bound
In regards to your interest in the OVOR, if a member has information I am sure they will help you. Use the trip planning page and the regional pages to see who has the info you need.

Hey all! New to overlanding specifically but not too new to camping. My wife and I live in the Denver area and have been tent camping for several years but mostly in paid campgrounds or National parks and this year decided to do more dispersed camping. We bought our rig a few months ago, 2016 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x and have done a few mods to it so far to make it better for camping and dispersed camping specifically, like the roof top tent, a drawer I built into the bed, upgraded leaf springs, and some other odds and ends. Excited to be a part of the community.

Welcome Alyia! I'm near you, in Denver. Really nice setup and that tent looks big and comfortable! What brand is it?

Very excited to see where this hobby takes me and who I meet along the way!

Hello Overlanders,

My name is Adam and I have been intrested in overlanding for awhile, but felt like I needed a bunch of fancy equipment. I have always been into camping, but I really grew tired of all the places that most people go to pay to camp. I realized that even though I don't have all the fancy overlanding equipment I do have enough camping gear and a 4 wheel drive truck. So I decided it is time to get out there and work with what I have for now. I live in the North Snohomish County area of Washington State. So if anyone can recommend places in that area that would be great for my first outting I would love to hear from you.

Hello Adam, welcome to Overland Bound. Try trailsoffroad.com for local trails, I find their rating system of the degree of difficulty on the trails to be accurate.
Thanks for your service.

Hi everyone. My name's Zach. I'm an avid hiker, and formerly being a fabricator (never car-related though), have always been into nice rigs. Was introduced to overlanding recently, and got completely hooked.

Located in Central NJ (frequently commuting to Northern OH).

Don't have a rig yet for overlanding (I'm starting a welding business in the near future, thought I could go adventures with the truck too).

I am totally new to overlanding (though I've hauled with trucks and know how to weld, if that counts as any experience), and could definitely use some good advice on where to start!

Hello Zach, welcome to Overland Bound. Start with a vehicle, whatever you have will work, just getting out and starting is all that you need to begin your memories. Glad you are here.

Hi All overlanders

My name is Gammal 39yrs old. New to community I have a 99 Gen2 Shogun named JAM and Shar pei named Jazmin who is 3yrs old and my wonder girlfriend Fiona 38yrs . We are based in Surrey Dorking UK. But we are both originally from Birmingham UK

We are currently just finishing of our build and getting the last of it sorted. Our build in our back is is 100% us. We thought doing it ourselves would feel more accomplishing.
We hope to meet fellow overlanders and even plan trips away together.
