How did you meet/connect with OC Overland?

I met Kunaal (@tailsonthetrail) and 2WD Casey (fearless leader / @kcsaysngo) through T4R.org in late 2016. Some time around November, the three of us and fellow T4R owner Nick (now a Jeep owner, rollingeyesemoji.jpg) met up at Holy Jim in Trabuco Canyon after a rainstorm to get some mud on our trucks and drink beers after. Cismontane was closed so I suggested a new brewery in Costa Mesa that I had sampled (over and over... and over) at an event my barber had hosted a week or two prior. Our love for Gunwhale Ales (@gunwhaleales) was born and new friends were made that day.

What do you feel/think about OC Overland?

I think OCO has been great at bringing like minds together. Yeah, every Tacoma and 4Runner may look the same, but all the people and personalities behind the steering wheels are what makes this group so much fun.

What sets OC Overland apart from other groups? 

I really enjoy the positivity that OCO puts out and how inclusive they are with their outings. Experience levels vary and the groups are sizable at times, but it's nice to see a mixture of new and old faces at every outing. That just means that when shit happens (and it does) there are more heads to put together and a bigger collection of different types of equipment to help get you through it. And we do! 

Hope to see you out there one day!
