Long time wanderer who never knew that there was a definition for our disease - I guess they call those of us who love to wander far from the pavement "Overlanders"! Based out of the Eugene/Springfield area I love to explore new areas and enjoying spending time with others with the same affliction... err hobby. I must admit that to get my wife to go means dragging the Jeep behind our motorhome as the Princess does not sleep in fabric enclosures ;-) I on the other hand consider a ground pad and a tarp acceptable. I'd love to get another chapter started in the south valley for folks in the Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove, Creswell, and Junction City areas. There are a lot of great areas to explore around us and beyond. I'll be at the NW Overland Rally and would love to chat with folks who would be interested.
