Hi All! Thanks for having me. Been browsing the last few days, after finding this site from a youtube link, and WOW, there is a plethora of amazing stuff here. I love seeing all the rigs and adventures.

My name is Noah and I live in Gorham Maine (just outside of Portland). New to Overlanding but not new to travel or outdoor activities.

I have a 2015 Nissan Frontier. Nothing much done yet. 2.5" RC lift on 285s.

Anyway thanks again for creating this space. I'm happy to be here!
Hello Noah and welcome to Overland Bound!

Hello everyone, I'm Jacob I've been a member since 2019 and just got this app again and I still am somewhat new to off-roading and Overlanding. I've attended Expo West in 2019 and I'm going to Expo West 2021! I have off-roded in Moab and mostly in Arizona. I'm always looking for more people to go camping or off-roading with!
Hello Jacob and welcome back to Overland Bound!

I am new to the forum and I’m looking to learning and being involved with overlanding as much as I can. I am retired and can’t wait to see this beautiful country.

Thank you Kent! I appreciate all the warm welcomes and the helpful links.

I see you're from Placerville. Wonderful town. I grew up in Santa Cruz and remember driving HWY 50 to get to Sierra at Tahoe and Kirkwood when I would snowboard in my youth. I hope you are doing ok out there with all the fires. My thoughts go out to you and everyone.

Highway 50 opens up today, we will be traveling it on Thursday on our way to Overland Expo in Flagstaff. Not looking forward to seeing the devastation.

Hello everyone!

I am new to overlanding. I have always like the way the rigs looked so decided I would dive in to give it a try. I bought a 2017 Forester Premium NA and am planning several upgrades over the next few years as money rolls in. Currently just have a roof rack but lights are on the way. Lift and tires and wheels are next but still in the air on how much lift and tire size. I'm from southwest Missouri so there's not a lot of public trails within an hour of my area. Hoping I can find others in this area to learn from.

Hello Dustin, welcome to Overland Bound. I use trailsoffroad.com their ratings for the degree of difficulty of the trail is accurate.
