Hi everyone, my name is Shane, and I am an addict! An addict of spending money to go out in the woods and get muddy and lost. Well, not too lost!


I travel with my copilot in life and on the trail - Audrey and our “beasty” Texas Healer - Gracie May. I am originally from Longview, WA and now reside in Salem, OR. I have been offroading my entire life, but nothing that contained any kind of organization. We started getting into the Overlanding community last August. I quickly realized that my old vehicle, although very capable, was not what I wanted to build as an Overlanding vehicle. In October, we purchased an ’18 TRD Off Road Premium 4Runner with KDSS. Next Spring, we are planning a 3 week adventure that will take us offgrid for hopefully over 1k miles through Montana, Wyoming, and Utah.


As eveyone knows, its a very expensive process and will forever be a work in progress to build a capable overlanding rig. My build so far consists of:


18” Fuel Hostage Wheels

Back Country All Terrains 275/65/18

SSO Sliders

Relentless Fabrication Front bumper

Smittybilt X20 - 10k winch

Armored ditch lights with Rago Mounts

Ridgid Fogs

Rigid Bar

aFe Performance exhaust

aFe Cold Air Intake

Odyssey Group 31 battery

Sprint Booster

HID Headlights

Icon Stage 6 (being installed in 2 weeks)


Future Upgrades:

SSO rear ”Trailgate” Bumper

SSO Roof Rack



We love wheeling and are looking forward to some adventures!

  • Afternoon, We recently moved back to Bainbridge Island after a few years living abroad in Luxembourg and Japan. I've had years of backcountry and backpacking experience, but when we moved back to the US I decided to and get into overland camping to make getting remote more accessible for my family. This weekend I got to take the new rig out for our first overnight stay to test it out. Not exactly overland, but good first test to put our three year old in the tent! Looking forward to getting to know this group and hope to meet some of you all in person soon. Cheers, Brad
  • I’m the lucky owner of a 2nd gen Tacoma, however I‘m waiting until the factory tires need to be replaced, to get 5 matching wheels and tires, and a 3” lift to help with the long wheel base of a double cab long bed. In the meantime I camp off fire roads that don’t absolutely require 4wd , because the factory spare. I’m looking to take off road safety courses , and acquire the necessary equipment piece by piece.
