Good morning! New member here! I'm currently in Harrisonville, MO. I'm planning a December roadtrip from here to Liberty Lake, WA in my new-to-me 2016 Ram Rebel and have started making upgrades (Decked drawer unit arrives today, new Toyos on Friday, shopping for comms).

Former Marine and Eagle Scout, light off-roading and camping experience over the years. Hoping to meet like-minded travelers that appreciate old, creeky bones.

Welcome! I’m from Sikeston, Missouri. I’ve lived in Cape Fair, MO; Jackson, MO; Blue Springs, MO, and Shawneetown. Nice to see another Missourian join the group. Good luck on your adventures!
Thanks! Was super stoked to discover this group, and what appears to be good number of Missouri members. I even bought a membership for my brother. So much good info in here and seemingly really friendly folk.

Good afternoon everyone! Glad to have found this site! Can’t wait to learn and hear from you all. I am very new to overlanding and cannot wait to get some trips under my belt. We recently bought a 2020 Toyota 4Runner Venture. It’s been a dream vehicle of mine for quite a while now. We absolutely love it! And I currently live in Memphis Tennessee.

We (mostly he) has been customizing our 2004 AstroVan for off road exploring/ comfortable camping :) . Pretty excited to find this community. We are heading out West soon and would appreciate trail advice. If we can help with anything New England related, happy to do so.

Hi there from Vail Arizona,

Been "overlanding" for may years with different modes of transportation, From bicycles, through motorcycles to trucks.
My favorite rig was 1999 UZJ 100 that I bought new and start rigging for overland use right from the start. This truck was the pathfinder for the 100 series LC for many modifications. I was cruiser99 on mud back then.

Roll the clock forward many years and many life events later and I find myself trying to make a comically and freakishly large 2016 RAM 2500 work for this overlanding thingie. This truck started as a tow rig but life events slowly is transforming as vehicle dependent expedition rig with all the usual tires, suspension and camping mods. It is now able to sustain me/us for a couple of weeks of remote travel with all the necessary fuel, water, food, equipment....

At a moment of weakness I bought a Gladiator last year but it seating in the garage doing basically nothing.

Hope to make connections and be a contributing member here.

Doron.

Hello! I didn’t know there was a name to what I’ve been doing over the years...going on adventures. Excited to have found this group and learning more. My wife and I just got back from a little weekend jaunt from Oklahoma to Utah and back. One night at Goosenecks State Park and another night in Valley of the Gods. I think she’s hooked on more adventures...now we’ve got to figure out how to do this with our five kids! The process of equipping my 03 Tahoe for all of our gear begins.......

Hey, good morning everyone. Been a member for a little bit but finally getting around to reading up and learning more from you all.

I’m based in central Oklahoma and we’ve been doing the RV thing for several years. Now that the boys are older, the wife and I decided to trim down and show the boys what more camping & less glamping looks like.

We love exploring the Rockies and getting out in the boonies, so this approach should be much more conducive to that.

Currently in the process of building out the whole setup. The Jeep has been fantastic on our first few shakedown runs and we’ll be building out a trailer with a 2nd tent for the boys and more permanent kitchen soon.
Welcome from Tulsa! Nice Gladiator!

Hi!
Brand-new member, but a long-time veteran of other enthusiast forums like ADVRider. I'm from Golden, Colorado and just got myself a 2011 Land Rover LR4 HSC that I am hoping to use to extend my range into my favorite mountain, canyon, and desert locations. Joined this forum to learn more about overlanding and how to ensure my vehicle will safe and capable when I travel beyond the interstate.

Hey all,

New member here, I live in the SF Bay Area and have a fully built 99 Jeep WJ with 35’s built for rock crawling. I have a full build thread on Mallcrawlin but with kids and work overlanding has become more of the focus. Looking forward to sharing my build on here and getting ideas and tips on what to do next.

Hi all! Glad to be here. My fiance and I live in Central VT and last winter acquired a 07 Ford F150, took it camping this summer in VT and NH, and were instantly hooked!! We chose to get rid of it due to mechanical problems, trade in one of our cars, and get a 2019 RAM 1500 Classic. Were waiting on the cap right now. We're hoping for a couple mild December nights to take it out!!
