Hello from the Oregon Coast


Edited: Apr 26, 2018

Hi everyone! We have slowly started getting into the overland hobby this last year. We sold our old cj5 and bought a stock 2dr rubicon which we’ve slowly been modifying. Our first overland trip was last September, when we did the OBCDR 6 and 2, along with navigating through the desert south of Christmas Valley. We have a few trips planned this year....OBCDR 6, 2, 4, 5-2, the NWOR in June and a Utah trip in Nov. We are also starting to research off road trailers.....as the sleeping in a tent on the ground habit isn’t out preference.


We live in Coos Bay on the Oregon coast, have 3 busy teens/tween and both work in cardiology.


We are excited to be part of the overland community and looking forward to joining in for events....


Adventure on!

-Cory and Julie

Nice, another 2dr JK! Judy (my wife) has a white one on factory springs and rubber as her DD. Good to have some cardiologists along on trips, just don't judge us by the food we eat :-)

John, we aren’t cardiologists, just work in cardiology. I (Julie) am a cardiology nurse in the Cardiac cath lab pre/post unit and Cory is a radiology technologist in the cardiac cath lab. :-)

  • 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.
