I've lived in the Puget Sound area for the last five years, and bought an '06 VW Touareg in April to enable some more outdoor adventures! No really good photos so far, I'm looking forward to learning more and finding some trails between what was doable in my Ford Focus and what might be better suited to the lifted Jeeps that frequent these parts.
When not working and enjoying city life, I also enjoy non-motorized ways of getting outside such as skiing, hiking/backpacking, and climbing.
I heard about this forum and the rally as a great introduction from colleagues, though I won't be able to make it as I'll be hiking the Half Dome in Yosemite that weekend. Hoping to see folks in a future meet up!
