What we're about

Who is this group for?
Arizona folks who love to Overland!
Those that love vehicle-based travel and exploration.
Those that would like to learn more about the backroads of AZ and beyond.
Those that want to share their knowledge on overlanding/off-roading, recovery, technology as it relates to overlanding and off-roading, favorite gear.
Those that are just getting started in the overlanding world and those that are returning to it after many years off.
Those that enjoy the company of others and don't wish to drag the group into debates about politics, religion, or any other pointless discussion that does not pertain to overlanding.
Those that are willing to lead and those willing to be lead.

Who is it not for?
Rock crawlers - You are a great group of people but you won't find that here.
Those that want to bash brands Yes, Toyota's can make fun of Jeeps and vice-versa in jest. We can all agree that Toyota is the best right? ;) Run what ya brung! applies here. We don't care what you drive as long as it is capable of doing the trip(s) you wish to participate in.

The goal:
Have at least 1 day trip per month, which will include optional camping when the season is right.

1 quarterly trip to places inside and outside of AZ that are multi-day in length. Examples: Death Valley, Mohave Road, Backcountry Discovery Routes, Baja. Possibly a "parking lot" meetup once per month. We will try to design some trips where people from all corners of the state can take routes to meet up end of day. We welcome 4 wheel and 2 wheel participants that could use some help with gear hauling.

Be flexible and modify the group trips based on demand. Tons of people helped me get started. I like to return the favor by being an active participant on overland related forums and starting this group.

Southern Arizona Recurring Meetup

Button Brew House

I'm starting a regular recurring meetup down here in the Tucson area. We will meet every THIRD THURSDAY of the month at Button Brew House (6800 N Camino Martin, Tucson, AZ) from 6pm to 8pm. Thursday night is also charity night at the brew house, so $1 of every beer purchased goes to the selected charity of the night. The first few meetups will be social meet and greets, and the plan is to start mixing in training, trip reports, rig walk-arounds, etc. into future dates. I know it's not ideal for all of you in the Phoenix area, but I did find a location on the very northwest side of Tucson to make it at least slightly easier for any Phoenix folks to get to. Once this one gets off the ground a bit more, I'd like to get something similar organized in the Phoenix area.
