Hi Guys-
    I found my way over here from a thread I was sent on PNWJeep.com. Someone was looking for history on an old club. I followed links in that thread to the History thread here. I think it's awesome and someday I will contribute to it as well. I'm relatively young but joined the Wandering Willys in 1978 (when I was born) and am a life member at this point. I hold much of the history of that club in my head and in my attic with various club scrapbooks full of pictures and articles and whatever someone at the time thought appropriate to go in there. Some of you may know me, others may recognize the Jeeps, and some won't know me at all, but here I am anyway.

Here's my old CJ-6-

And an older pic of my 3A that I need to get back on the road soon.

Thanks Todd and thanks Phantom309.

It may take me a while to actually get some pics up from the books, but I have the original book from 1969- early 80's and also one a club member put together in the late 90's or early 2000's. I also have a region 1 Roster book from 1973 put out by the club that has all these clubs and their individual members listed at the time of publication..... it's interesting history, but not as exciting as the old photos.
