I met the OC Overland crew through my friend and co-worker @mtnrnr_t4r on a last minute night run up to Santiago Peak. Since then, I've been to 2 of their camping events in Gorman and Coyote Flats.
As someone thats been trailing/adventuring solo for the last 3 years and relying on the forums for DIY and how-to articles, it's been great having a group like OC Overland to bounce ideas off of. They have also introduced me to some great local shops that I don't think I would have found on my own.
What sets OC Overland apart from other groups is their inclusiveness. They welcome everyone from the seasoned off-roader to beginners and will make you feel like you've been a part of the group for years.
Lastly, they give back to the community. In the short time I've known this group, they have done a trail clean up, had a fundraiser for the victims of hurricane Harvey, fed kids in conjunction with the Orange County Rescue Mission and are holding a canned food drive.
This group connects fellow off-roaders & overlanders so that we can make new friends, share knowledge, and grow as a community. It's a group that anyone would be proud to be a part of.
