Get an idea of the overall look, user experience, and initial features that will be available in the new TEAM 4X Membership Portal. This is just the beginning! More features will be added as time goes on.
We are hard at work building the new Member Portal for future TEAM 4X members to give you a unique community of like-minded outdoor adventurers who share a passion for the great outdoors. The system will be launched in January 2021. Sign-up now to be named a Founding Member! Or, sign up for notifications to be entered into a drawing for a free one-year membership including all member gear and benefits.
Each new member receives a TEAM 4X official welcome kit in the mail currently valued at over $130.00. The kit includes two brushed nickel numbered vehicle badges with your member number engraved on them, a matching certificate of authenticity signed by Scott, a 4X icon velcro-backed tire patch, an exclusive stamped leather 4X icon two-toned trucker cap, official expedition vehicle stickers, die-cut TEAM 4X stickers, a TEAM 4X T-shirt and more!
EVERYTHING we do is with a detailed focus on quality.
We will be conducting monthly drawings for, not only, gear we’ve tested but partner gear and equipment provided to us by our growing list of valued partners. One TEAM 4X member will win each month and members need not enter to win. Every member automatically qualifies. We will make monthly announcements of the winner and feature them on the Portal and mention the winner on the 4XPEDITION Adventurer YouTube channel
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to win every month!
Every month we will showcase one member and their vehicle to give TEAM 4X members and opportunity to shine in the spotlight of our membership. Share about yourself, your rig, and your favorite gear and adventures. As this section evolves, we will likely also conduct vehicle walk-around videos on-location with members. This level of media investment will give members a greater sense of options for their make and model of vehicle with insights from members as to their reasoning behind decisions they’ve made along the way.
Only members qualify. Not in the USA? Not a problem. We can conduct online interviews with you and your vehicle.
You can’t be a community without a place for members to communicate, collaborate and meet as friends. We’ve installed an easy to use forum system that members will be able to quickly navigate and will likely already know their way around. We will be looking for moderators and other assistance.
What will make our community different? If you are a regular viewer of the 4XPEDITION Adventurer YouTube channel you already know that my content is a bit more diverse. Yes, we will cover adventure, gear, equipment, how-tos, classifieds and vehicle mods. But, we will also cover more meaningful subjects like sustainability, community, nature centric and humanitarian causes and issues, revolutionary tech, and much more.
Have you ever wanted to chat live with other adventurers from around the globe? Have an interest in talking live with Scott while out in the field? Maybe tunning in to hear a guest speaker or regional adventurer sharing insights about travel in a particular region? ZOOM Camp chats will start out monthly but will likely eventually become either bi-weekly or even weekly depending on popularity.
Expect ZOOM Camp to continually evolve. We may even see this feature become a regular live Podcast. This feature is just beginning to emerge.
We will be sifting through and negotiating discount offers from a wide range of current and new partners to provide a group discount on gear, equipment, travel and more. Call it crowd sourcing. The truth is, large groups have power and influence. We will work together to make adventuring more affordable.
We will be seeking new partners like water in the desert to uncover great deals for you.
We will offer member discounts to TEAM 4X members to purchase gear and merch from the 4XPEDITION Gear Shop. In fact, we will be regularly creating new cool items for you to consider AND we will be looking for ideas from you in that process. Looking for a Subaru specific patch or Land Rover specific T-Shirt? We can create that! Your suggestions may very well make it to our store.
Member Only Sweepstakes!
That’s right! We have been organizing a Gear Giveaway Sweepstakes for TEAM 4X Members! We anticipate this event will be held in May 2021 just before the summer camping season! Our goal is to accumulate over $5,000 in prizes to give away to our members. Will you be a member of Team 4X? Then maybe you will be the winner of amazing overland and car camping gear for your summer adventures to Venture Out!
Team 4X Events and Adventures
You will have an opportunity to participate in a variety of events hosted by 4XPEDITION including overland rendezvous, social gatherings, national and international travel engagements and much more. Watch for this section to expand as the membership grows.
From checklists and course worksheets to itineraries, walpapers, GPS locations, and member tools like auto purchasing calculators and more. The downloads tools will expand as time goes on but there will be many ways you will be able to access and utilize this material.
We will be offering both free and fee-oriented courses. Some will be online guided and online self-guided while others will be on-location and in-the-field requiring travel. This is an exciting time for 4XPEDITION as we have hoped to be able to offer this kind of experience for many years.
From custom crafted articles to special release videos, we will bring to you a wide range of exclusive material for you to browse. We may offer Team 4X members the opportunity to write articles for submission as well as other community engagement in the content we create.
Easy profile and account management tools designed to help you have the best experience possible. In fact there are many other features not mentioned here that we have already implemented or are currently developing now for integration.
