How did you meet/connect with OC Overland?: I first came across OCO through a friend of mine. He wouldn’t shut up about his group ride experience, and just kept babbling on and on. So naturally, I had to head down to OC and check them out myself during one of their meet ups. I am damn glad I made the drive that day, and rest is history.
What do you feel/think about OC Overland? : Bottom line, OCO makes you feel like you are part of a huge family. It doesnt’ matter what you drive or what level of experience you have, these guys are always there to answer any questions you may have, and help you through a tough situation out on the trail. There is definitely a sense of belonging.
What sets OC Overland apart from other groups? : I’ve been involved with few off road groups, and there are just too many attributes that set OCO apart from other groups. Monthly trips, meet ups, positive support and guidance the group brings on and off the trail, etc., too many to list them all. But what really sets OCO apart is how involved they are with helping out those in need. Through a number of fund raisers such as Fuel the Vets, blood drive for Las Vegas victims, trail clean up, to food drives, OCO is not only bringing people together for a great cause, but creating a sense of community. Keep it up boys!
