Hi All,
A fine group of people here! I'm the same guy who goe's by oregon4wd on the DV.net forum. So why haven't I been on this forum? Who knows.... I'm just slower these days I guess. :? Intro: I'm 47 yrs old, married, teens, dogs, cat, goats, chickens, etc. I've been off-roading since the mid 70's. Ghost town exploring since the early 80's and since I retired in 2000, I've been able to step it up a bit, hitting the dirt roads somewhere between 3-5 weeks a year. I generally stick to the Great Basin and Death Valley, but sometimes I skip out to other regions in the West. I've had different rides: My brothers '73 CJ5 when I was younger, '77 Wagoneer, '94 Toyota 4x4 and a '05 Rubicon LJ. I've met a number of you good folks in the last few years and enjoy the company as I usually hit the road by myself since my kids are older now. Since I live in Oregon (about 70 miles south of Portland) my trips are usually about a week or sometimes longer. Other interests are photography, assorted areas of radio (KE6GMM- General Class being one of them), astronomy, gardening etc. Good luck exploring... be safe... have fun!

Welcome Desert4wd!

Thanks for the bio- it's nice to know the folks who come around here.

I understand the sometimes difficult process getting to the DV area when living some distance away. Upstate NY makes flying about the only option for me, though if I were in OR, I'd still probably fly.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
My perspective of distance has been modified :D I enjoy driving alot... Actually, I think I really enjoy the whole process of planning a trip, doing the research of possible sites, plotting a course, then the anticipation...lol. I've been doing this for some time now but I'm still just a beginner- everytime I make a trip, the places I want to go to next time doubles! Still, I like to visit some places over and over because they're interesting everytime and usually even more so because of something new I've learned about the history.
