    Hello from Belmont, CA

    Hi all,

    Just a quick hello to all, and thank you (in advance) to all the help I'm sure to get from you all.

    Very new to the LR ownership lark. Bought a 94 RRC lwb on a non-op over the summer, and just got it legal and registered. Having a blast with it so far, but have a laundry list as long as my arm! Currently it's running fwd as the borg's lost its viscous! Have a 230 to put in - just got t find the time.

    grew up in the UK in Warwickshire about 30 miles south of Solihull, so grew up with loved these truck for a very long time.

    All the best

    tim.

    Hey Tim, welcome to Rovermania... I see you are in NorCal, peninsula even, be sure to also check out NorCal Land Rover Club at NorCalRovers.org. We are Bay Area based with a handful of the membership here in the Peninsula as well, even a Brit ;-) In fact, we sometimes get our subset together for beers and BS... The next gathering is posted on the club's website/calendar. Hope to meet you at an event, there are a bunch of guys with who you can compare lists . Best, Tom

    Welcome Tim! I second what Tom said and add a bit myself; The club is having its annual gathering of the members the first weekend in October, it is a three day event and people come from various parts of the state and it's a great opportunity to meet others inflicted with roveritis.

    Hope to see you there!

    In your vehicle you will find the true meaning of... well, sorry. Not quite sure about that. But get ready for some fun times. Echo-ing all other welcomes. Now feel free to FWD your fix-it list!

    Greetings Tim.........

    One of the "afflicted from the valley", aka jerp209, has been wanting to head over here to the penninsula, for an impromptu gathering. Should we keep you informed? Some Saturday, maybe at the Oasis in Palo Alto. Spouse, significant others, & offspring are welcome. I need to be nice to "She Who Must be Obeyed". She's the one that drives the Rover.

    Cheers,
    Steve
