Highlights

Highlight: Ample and Alluring #26 / Tillamook State Forest
Ample and Alluring lives up to its name with an ample forest loaded with big ferns, dripping moss, and a tight trail. The trail is alluring to those who like to thread their way through tight spots and challenge themselves with potential exposure to rolling off the trail if a vehicle wanders too close to the edge. After a great romp through the forest and up the mountain, Ample and Alluring pops out of the woods and onto a gravel road that leads to more adventures in the Tillamook State Forest.

Douglas Van Bossuyt

Mapping Crew - Oregon

Douglas grew up riding in the back of pickups in Oregon and California. He comes from a long line of overlanders and adventurers dating back to the Mayflower and the Oregon Trail. During a stint working in Colorado, Douglas fell in love with the offroad scene and immediately gravitated toward the Toyota crowd. His first 4x4 was a 1988 Toyota 4runner nicknamed Goldilocks. After a year of running many of the iconic trails throughout the front range in the fully stock Goldilocks running on bald tires, it was time for an upgrade. Goldilocks went off to a new home and the Albino Rhino came home. The Albino Rhino is a built 1986 Toyota 4runner ready for any adventure anywhere at any time. During the week, Douglas works on systems engineering and architecture problems in California. Douglas also enjoys backpacking -- especially in the central Sierras in California -- scuba diving along the Oregon and California coasts, and riding his motorcycle on the Pacific Coast Highway. Most weeknights you can find Douglas under his truck in the driveway performing maintenance or fixing the latest trail damage.
