I am a 7th Generation Oregonian, with a deep seeded need to explore. Some might say I am a bit of a nomad, having recently relocated back to the Pacific Northwest after spending the last 10yrs living in Louisiana, California, Virginia and Colorado. I am married and have 4 young kids (3 boys and a girl). We have a family goal of spending 30 nights camping each year and we are getting close, averaging about 18 nights a year, which ain't bad with 4 little kids! I have been wheeling most of my life, mainly to get to a trailhead or campsite, but as I get older the journey has become as important or more important than the destination. My offroad vehicle of choice has varied greatly over the years; I currently have a mildly built 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser, which has solidified my love for Land Cruisers and the amazing community of Toyota enthusiasts. Previously I've had a Gen2.5 Mitsubishi Montero, Subaru wagons, an old Ford farm truck and an 80's diesel Mercedes which was surprisingly good at exploring the back roads of the NW.
