Hello All,
I'm Simon Wolfe in Sunnyvale CA.

I like to go "old school" thus my rig is a 1962 Land Rover Dormobile we call Oliver. I'm pretty Novice when it comes to Overlanding. But we like camping and traveling. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you and hope to learn a lot from the group.

Welcome. I'm in SF and we need to meet! You should also consider joining the Northern California Land Rover Club. I'm a former club President, and Erin (@erinw.rrc) is the current President, who lives in Santa Clara.

Hello, I'd like to meet up I love looking at other folks Rovers and other rights to get ideas and good information on "how to". Thanks for the information. I did look into the NCLR but the $100 membership fee is a bit too pricey for me.

Very cool rig. do you have pics of the inside?
I just have the one and it is not very good. The seats fold around to make a small table or can be all laid flat to to make a bed that sleeps two. There are two "cots" up in the roof section that will sleep two more. However that males things a bit cozy, two and the dog is the way to go. It has a little sink and use to have a propane hob grill and ice box but a previous owner took that out. I have a little old Colman two burner stove where the hob grill was. I haven't found a suitable replacement for the grill as of yet.

@Simon Wolfe there's also the MendoRecce group. They aren't a club, just an active Google group mail list. A vast majority of the members are Series owners, including Timm Cooper, Linus Tremaine and TeriAnn Wakeman. They have an annual weekend camping trip at Cedar Camp in Mendo Nat'l Forest in early spring.

Hey Simon,

Nice to meet you and welcome. If you'd like to meet some of the members, we do have a monthly meeting on the peninsula the third Thursday of every month. You don't have to be a member to attend and it's a great time to have a beer and chat about rovers. It looks like the organizers of the meeting aren't quite sure where to meet (everybody gets sick of the same old place), but I will send you an update once confirmed if you want to hang. Thanks.

Best,

Erin
