Hi, new members here from San Diego. We are excited to start our overland adventure. We just bought our 2022 4runner and are in the process of building it out. We would appreciate any advice from the community since we have never done anything like this before and we have TONS of questions. Looking for any kinds of group trips around SoCal so we can learn before trying anything more serious alone.
Thanks!

Hello OTG group! My name is Jason and I'm from Acton, CA. I grew up Jeepin for over 20 years and no longer have one. Hopefully someday again. I've also done lots of camping and BDR'S off of motorcycles. Anyway, I am currently have a 2006 Ford F-350. Sometimes I will ground tent or bring the OEV Camp-X.

I've been watching many of the YouTube videos which has inspired me to explore some more. Hopefully I can meet up with you guys on a future run.

Hello, I recently ran across OTG while putting together some routes and kept seeing OTG's GPX tracks of the same routes that I wanted to do so I felt that this group is worth checking! My wife and I are semi-retired (e.g. empty nestors) living in Granite Bay, CA looking to explore whatever's out there to see as we finally have some time to do it. I have a 09 4 Runner Trail Edition that is set up well for the majorty of most trails that we have encounter thus far. We love exploring California, Nevada and Utah and look foward to seeing you all on the trail. We just got back from the Mojave Trail and Death Valley in March and have an awesome trip planned in June to British Columbia, Vancover Island and the San Juan Islands.

Hello everyone, I'm from Southern California and looking forward to exploring in the coming months, especially North from where I am as I haven't ventured out those areas much. I've been off-roading/disperse camping for many years, usually an extended weekend trip every 2 months used to be the norm till Covid hit and then the frequency dropped to 2 trips/year due to work mainly.

I am planning to get back into it as there is so much to explore. My vehicle is a Toyota Tacoma and I also have an adv bike. I appreciate the route details on the website which are very informative and well written. Hope to connect with some of you as well.

Hi I'm Matt, I'm new here but have been around the off-road, camping, overland scene for many years.
I live in La Mirada, CA. That's roughly 20 miles East of Los Angeles and right next to the Orange County line.
I'm currently fast tracking a build of my 2022 4Runner after passing along my well built '14 Jeep JKU to my son
Prior to that Jeep, I've owned a GMC Sierra 4x4, 1st Gen Tundra, Jeep YJ, and a couple of old Scouts. I have done trails all over the Southwest,
Some of favorite trips in recent years have been multi-day trips, one exploring the Panamint Mountains along the West side of Death Valley, The Black Canyon area of AZ where we spent a week exploring trails between Prescott and Phoenix. I do a lot of 1-3 day exploration trips in the local mountains and deserts. Exploring a new area and finding a good trout stream next to a great campsite is about as good as it gets for me.
In the coming year I hope to explore more of Death Vally, and possibly do the El Camino Del Diablo with my nephew, son and brother.

Hello. My name is Eric Mills and my wife and I have decided to get into the overlanding scene. We live in North Alabama. I am currently building my 2014 Ram 3500 into our overlanding vehicle. I have found a used Alucabin that will be installed next week. Been working on researching what I think I need, but need to know a lot more and found this site and forum. We are planning to do the Flat tops trail in July. So if anyone knows anything about the trail and wants to share any information, we would love to hear it.

Welcome! I reside in the quaint town of Melba, Idaho. My 2007 Ram 3500 is a reliable workhorse with impressive fuel mileage for its class. I'm planning to embark on some beginner-friendly routes in Southwestern Idaho, not far from the Owyhee's, which I visit frequently, and perhaps venture into Eastern Oregon initially. The Rivers Trail in Oregon has caught my interest for future adventures. While I haven't tackled any official overland routes yet, I've navigated numerous forest service roads, preferring them over the more challenging rocky paths that demand low four-wheel drive. I'm captivated by the scenic vistas. My next step is to acquire a pre-owned short popup truck bed camper, which I'm confident in refurbishing to suit my needs. There seems to be a good selection available at reasonable prices, possibly requiring some TLC. I plan to watch instructional videos to master this and consider potential gear upgrades for my journeys. With an abundance of trails and information at my disposal, it's time to dive in and learn more!
