Howdy everyone! The name is Bert and I hail from Seattle (Greenlake Area). I grew up in Bothell as a kid and then moved to Montana because my family purchased and auto parts store. I lived there for 20ish years, then spent a few years in Utah where I began my Overlanding adventures with my 98 GMC K1500 - named Artax. I've been back in WA for about 2 years now.

Mark and Teresa here. We have been together a pretty long time, north of 40 years and yet she still keeps me around. One of our passions is traveling and we try to get away as much as our schedule allows. Some of our favorite haunts are both coasts of Mexico and a few favorite nuggets across the Caribbean. Stateside, hands down is Moab, Utah. We have gone to Easter Jeep Safari every year since we bought our Jeep in 2013 and this coming Safari in April will be no exception. We love taking our Jeep friends to Moab and showing them the amazing beauty of the entire region, it's always the highlight of our year! Locally, we have traveled the highways and byways throughout Washington, hitting most of the off-road trails and ORV parks, the panhandle of Idaho and down and through Tillamook State Forest in Oregon and the infamous Sand Lake. This past year we built an off-road trailer to complement our Jeeps abilities. We think it turned out pretty well considering I'd never really built anything like that before. We took it on a shakedown cruise in July, WABDR south to north. I really didn't know what to expect dragging it through the washout above Beehive Reservoir but she handled it like a champ. We are looking forward to meeting everyone and are really excited about the upcoming expedition to Cabo San Lucas, our favorite home away from home. So many times we have flown over Baja, admiring all of the sandy coves with our name on them, hoping one day we will have our toes in the sand!
