Who does it? Where? How? Why?

I do it, because rocks and mud are lame in my opinion, wherever I can find a place that seems interesting, it's like parkour for jeeps.

I'm building mine for it as well. I think max from dirtbound has an AWSOME setup on his rig, albeit a bit "bigger" than I would like. I just picked up one of his front bumpers actually and will probably do a custom rear carrier. I'm 3" and 33x10.5s, 4.56s, trutrac front, Aussie rear, ax15/242 tcase. I swapped the 242 because I personally feel its "safer"..if overlanding snow or ice or nasty rain is usually A option so I felt it would be the safer bet..only con I see is its a bit longer 4" roughly and you don't get a true. "Sye". All hack n taps...but you can get 2 low, 4:1, fat chains ect so the. Whole deboggle of the 231 vs 242 I vote 242
covered pretty well in these threads:

I have always loved camping, fishing, hiking (back when I could walk well enough to do so) and being away from civilization in general.
I know, I know, there are gonna be some people who wanna say " 3 days, that's not an overland trip, I once went out for 17 years!"....I will just hit that on the head now, it would be my first trip so I plan on taking a short, fairly close to some sort of civilization trip,as I am sure I will forget something on my first time as well as most of any trips I take afterword.
So, anyways...I really like the idea of overlandin, I just wonder if anyone out there has any suggestions of where to go in the Indiana area. I don't really know of any forest service trails or anything of the sort in my area. All I know of us having is the run of the mill orv park. Nothing worth taking an extended trip to.
