So...

Could there be interest in a rally that aims at gathering OB members (and friends), around the practice and spirit of overlanding in the Iberian peninsula?

If so please:

Gracias @viveen4wd !

Some of the criteria to set the Iberian tone could be:
to have the route travese the border (This is an ideal and assumes it is viable from a legal standpoint)
to set a bivuac in ES and another in PT.

While doing virtual recon work in the area, a place called Verim (PT) stood out. It's not that far from Verín (GZ) ES! So the twin-named-town-route was born :)

If there is demand, a transborder weekender loopy loop could be in order!
Here is a first shot at a (road-based) sketch:

This may be too many Kms to transpose onto dirt tracks for one weekend.
Again it's just evidence of concept.
Thoughts?

Yes, something should be prepared to hold a meeting @JDavid . Something cross-border sounds great. I have made a post in the region to create a census of the region. You could take a look to see what you think.
