TEAM OUTLAW, #174

VEHICLE:

Keri and Laura met at a dinner party in Arizona 6 months ago. And while they both had previous partners at the time for this years Rebelle Rally, little did they realize what was in store for them! They have spent the last 6 months getting to know each other and look forward to taking on the challenge of the Rebelle Rally together! Laura loves to use her weekends for adventuring with her family on the Arizona trails in her JKU or JLU. She also enjoys pushing herself to the limits while rock climbing with her daughter. We’ll be using her JKU in this years Rebelle Rally. Keri has been involved heavily in the Offroad community in the mid-west for over 12 years. When they aren’t on the trail, in her spare time she writes off-road related articles for Throttle Gal Magazine and works on jeeps in the garage with her hubby, Paul, as his assistant. Together, they have three kids ages 15, 17, and 20 who also enjoy the Jeep life.

LAURA WANLASS

HOMETOWN: Sheboygan, Wisconsin

RESIDENCE: Phoenix, Arizona

OCCUPATION: Partner at Aon

“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

FUN FACT: Laura was one of the first women pole vaulters in the US.

KERI PORTER

“You’re off to great to places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way.”

-Dr. Seuss

FUN FACT: Keri played roller derby for 6 years.
