    Default With all the "New Guy" topics, I supposed I should introduce myself...

    My name is James Howard, I live in Tucson, and I am addicted to Land Rovers.

    Our current Rover is a 1968 Dormobile, which you can see many pictures of on TeriAnn's website. The most recent are here: http://expeditionlandrover.info/Dorm...ictures10.html
    Ours is the one with the red cans of go-juice on the back.

    I bought my first Rover in 1995, a 1972 Series III, which I got from the original owner. After that, there were 89 and 93 Range Rovers, and now the Dormobile.

    My family & I love getting off the pavement for several days at a time. We have been to many places on the Colorado Plateau where we didn't see another soul for days. Perfect for us. We sure miss living in Flagstaff, where that was all a lot closer.

    By profession, I am a mechanical engineer, and work on the Large Binocular Telescope.

    Nice site, and nice rig! Welcome! You're in good company.

    Be prepared to assist in the rover vs taco ongoing debate in this forum.

    P.S. Excellent Rover porn on that website!

    Years back, when I was trying to get a Yahoo address, everything I could think of was taken. Yahoo suggested 86004 - it was where I lived at the time. My wife hates it.

    We need to get back up there.
