How did you meet/connect with OC Overland?

I first met Casey, James and Kunaal last year in Joshua Tree, before OC Overland was this massive movement that it is now. The Joshua Tree trip was setup within the T4R forum, but these guys had their own little base camp apart from everyone else. I was introduced to everyone by Chris Le; it has felt like Family ever since. Few months later, OC Overland then had their first official Meet n’ Greet at Gunwhale Ales in Costa Mesa and the rest was history. 

What do you feel/think about OC Overland?

OC Overland makes me feel welcomed. I can’t thank them enough for what they have started and what they continue to do for the community. I feel nothing but positive vibes and comradely. Looking forward to what the future has planned for OC Overland!

What sets OC Overland apart from other “groups”?

The bond. The bond and the familiar feeling of family is what sets OC Overland apart from others. I’ve come across other off-roading groups and no one comes close to what they’re doing. From coordinating canned food drives to feeding the needy and setting up EPIC camping trips. Even if I’ve missed several events, we pick up right where we left off! It’s always good times with the OC Overland family.
