Default Hi from Eastern WA

2006 RRS First Rover. Always loved them. Grew up in UK always loved old Land Rovers. My uncle drove one overland to India. Had a job in college where we used old safari rovers to tow mobile audio studios for horse races and the like.

Hi Nick,

Welcome and congrats on your first Rover; I'm in the same boat up in Cle Elum with my first, an 05 LR3 in the same grey. My wife doesn't get how significant it is for me to own a Land Rover (I grew up in Westford, VT, home to the famed Rovers North shop) and my 4 year old daughter keeps calling it a Jeep! (damn kids).

Best of luck and let me know if you come across a good repair shop in the area.

Cheers,
Neal

I too am educating my wife in the importance of owning a Land Rover. No notions on repair shops but I do hope to do most of my own maintenance. Good to know someone local has the same bug.

I live in Seattle but make it over east a few time a year. If you are looking for an area to explore head West on 410 until you get to Gold Creek Saloon all the 1400 roads go up hill into National Forest Land. No pass needed just hundreds of miles of dirt roads to explore. PM me if you want more info.

Hey thanks. In some ways this area should beat out Moab for offroad activity. Apart from the areas between I90 and 410 there is the whole Rimrock area which is stunning. At the risk of being shunned I have a pretty extensively modified 1990 XJ that is the hard core off road machine. The Range Rover will be my mountain, snow, tow, and usually daily driver at least to start.
