Cody here. I'm new to the site and somewhat new to my 2014 Fronty crew cab, 4.0, 4x4, SV. I have been a big fan of Nissan for the better part of two decades having owned a hardbody, 2 pathfinders and a Titan (which the Fronty replaced last November). My goal in joining the site is to gain from the wisdom of others in my future plans for it. I am very interested in overlanding and have been doing it for years without knowing there is a name for it. I am currently making plans for an overland trip to and through British Columbia and the Yukon next summer and am slowly outfitting my truck for comfort, capability and usability. Though I am very mechanically inclined I am undoubtedly ignorant compared to many on this site. Definitely will be calling on the community for advise and help in my journey. Also I will be gradually looking to connect with one or two others to possibly join me on the trek. It is a bucket list fishing trip (fly fishing mainly) for my dad so the routes and locations we'll be traveling will be with that in mind. Two weeks is the tentative plan from boarder in to boarder out. I am in California and would want a travel partnership to be with someone within 7-800 miles of Sacramento so that we could meet up once or twice for weekend treks. Best to get to know someone before taking on a two week outing to find out your groups have nothing in common. Anyway that's my story and I'll be posting and asking questions about my Fronty and hope not to be too ignorant. Thanks.

Head over to the regional forums and check out some of the runs the NorCal/Nevada crew have done and continue to do. Hungry Valley in just three weeks!

They aren't as much into overlanding as I am, mostly ridgerunners and rock crawlers, but I'm slowly getting a couple of them into it!

Like the OP said, people have been doing it for a hundred years or so. It's just now been named!

The Oregon Trail was an overland route :)
