    The Land Rover photo thread (original content)

    Time for my 110 photo (it was a rental, and the photo is a "reenactment" of one famous picture by my daughter and her fiance). Close to Bowmore distillery in Islay, four days ago.

    Tool Deals Thread

    About 18 years ago or so, we had a Discoweb group buy of a bunch of spare parts off a D1 being taken apart somewhere in San Ysidro, near the border. Don't laugh - at the time there was no aftermarket and dealer parts were ridiculously expensive. Being closest to the place, I went and grabbed the...

    I've had enough of this crap.

    Send the f##ker to a re-education camp!

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    Chris, let's be realistic :) Any Pioneer head unit is just another cha-cha-cha. Just didn't have time to get and install the Continental head unit before the trip. ... and all my ham radios are Yaesu (except for one Kenwood).

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    Funny you should mention it. On most trips, I fret over my truck's behavior- listen to all noises, and whatnot. When we went to Baja California last year, I detected a rattling noise from the engine, and was obsessed with it for a while. This trip - aside from 9-10 mpg, nothing bothered me...

    Dave - sorry, it was getting late and we had to hammer it home. Wish I knew more about Maughan!

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    Our progress is moderate - we pass the towns of Roosevelt, Rye, Payson, Pine, and Strawberry; the weather is spectacular, and we are treated to views of wildlife yet another old car rally. The roads climb higher and gain about five thousand feet in elevation, so the scenery changes from...

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    Home run The sun is up, and so is Jules. I took care to keep him under covers during the night, so he's well rested. Too bad he doesn't drive... We get out of the tent, I pour water in Jules' bowl and go back to rekindle the campfire. By the time the fire is going, Jules' water freezes, and...

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    The road descends into the plains, and we find nothing to rest the eyes on for a long while. We pass through a little town of Animas; the gas gauge is inching lower, and I suggest we look for a gas station soon. The plan for the day includes crossing Interstate 10, and we are certain to find...

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    The road takes us South, towards the border. We follow The Wall for more than forty miles, only briefly deviating from it in the border town of Douglas. In a while, the fence starts a crazy uphill climb, and the traffic is forced to deviate North towards Guadalupe Canyon Road. This one...

    Border to Border ... along the Border

    Bisbee I enjoy a beautiful hot shower and take Jules for a morning walk around old town Bisbee. The town is one of these places I missed in many crossings of the state of Arizona and many thousands of miles on its roads. All I know in the morning that it is one of the famous copper-mine...
