One of the most rewarding aspects of Overlanding is that it’s a group hobby. In my case, my son is also interested in Overlanding, and he also has a 4Runner he plans on off-roading with.
On Monday, my son helped me install my rock sliders. I’m glad he did; I couldn’t have done it without him. The sliders are heavy, and requires two people to lift into place. Additionally, he’s adept at working on cars, and his help enabled us to get the sliders mounted quickly.
I have a group of friends I met over a decade ago when we were all into VW’s. Now, all of us have moved on to Overlanding, and we will be making trips out West to go off-roading and to go camping together.
