Any (4-wheel) Overland types in here?

As I'm getting older and bad knees and hips are forcing me away from two-wheel adventures I'm getting my adventuring done on four wheels instead.

On the plus side, I get to take the dog and a whole lot more gear out there with me. No more counting ounces trying to maximize each cubic inch out of my saddle bags.

Sound off! Let's see your rigs and your trips!

6-foot-bed. I wanted a long bed specifically so I can sleep on it, with my foot touching the tailgate I have 2" of room between my head and bulkhead.

It's a Maggiolina Extreme. http://www.autohomeus.com/roof-top-t...ggiolina-tent/

It's pretty nice in there.

I want a 10-12 Range Rover someday. Preferably with the SC. And yes, if I ever get one, it will be taken off road.

Nice, what shape was Usal in? I went there 3 years ago and am thinking of going back. Did you drive out the road north? I have a 94 toyota 22re pickup 2wd.

Thanks! All except one (the long-exposure night shot) were taken with the iPhone X. If you’re on Instagram I’m @_scorpiovi in there.

Nah. CB for now. Mainly just want to talk to guys I’m convoying and wheeling with. A few guys have been on my case to get a license but it sounds like a hassle.

Great pics. Looks like you (and your dog) upgraded from your truck tent.

No Morse code requirement anymore so the test only takes a day to cram and test. http://www.baears.com

With IRLP and DMR you can hit world wide with just a Tech license.

I have a friend who got way into it and the "community." He spent a ton building up a rig, then teamed up with a guy to start a business. Guy played him and stole the business and left my friend with nothing but thousands of dollars lost and a new sense of betrayal.

I have a lifted 4x4 that I like to take to remote areas for camping and recreation. But the whole "overlanding" scene seems very heavily gear focused and a lot of dick measuring based on who's got what kit.

Maybe you found a cooler crew. Your pics do make it look like you're having a great time
