I sold my R53 last week. Let’s remember some fun things we did:
And by “we” I mean me and the trusty XJ.
Welp, looks like it’s just going to be me on this trip, which is weird, since Julie and I go everywhere together.
Here’s some news.
There’s been a fair amount of talk around these parts lately about searching for new vehicles that will scratch our overlandy itch, myself included. As I reported earlier, our

Over the last few weeks I have binged on four seasons of Australia’s most well-known outdoor adventure travel show - All 4 Adventure.

I’m headed to Overland Expo East this weekend in Asheville, North Carolina. My wife and I are giving a couple of presentations about our trip to southern Africa last year, and we’ll be soaking in the vibe of the largest gathering of overland vehicles and travelers in North America.
“I love the desert because it is continuously destroying and recreating itself, obliterating me in the process.”
If you’ve always wanted an ex-military surplus Humvee for that next off-road or overland project, well, here you go. Average prices seem to be hovering around $5500, some are listed as low as $4k.
In August my wife and I traveled to Los Angeles (well, Orange County, really) for my cousin’s wedding.
