Saw an old brown/green/rust colored (?) series with a roof rack pulling a trailer in Cave Junction, OR today. Going the other way - no time for a pic.

Just had a great chat with the owner of this one. As you can see it's a rolling resto soon to be painted it's original Arles Blue. RHD Tdi. Her husband maintains it for her.
Nice rig, I like the Alpine window guards. I see that it has the European plate and state plate. I got a $283 ticked from WA State Patrol for doing that. The ticket was dismissed in court but still a hassle and time spent I didn't really have.

When she got it (she wanted it not her hubby), it had some racks on both sides. If you look just above the wheelarch, you see aluminum acne from their removal and a very neat repair that he did.

Looks like a 26XX truck as opposed to a Unimog, but it’s cool to see some people from Romania have shipped a big ass truck to the US to explore in.

Huskies were pulling too hard to get a proper look. They found a nice out of the way spot for free camping on the water. I've seen other camper / rv types in the same spot.

My son sent me these pics from Sams Valley.
Starting to see more around Southern Oregon than we used to.

Defender at Grytviken, South Georgia Island. Guaranteed low mileage as there is less than 2.5 miles of driving surface there however the salt air will take its toll on the chassis

Surveyor, Doing seismic work?
No, fulfilling a dream. I have been wanting to go to Antarctica since my Coast Guard days in the early 70's. I tried to get on an icebreaker heading south but was unsuccessful.
I recently retired from a 40 year land surveying career, my wife and I took an 18 day trip to the Falklands, South Georgia Island and the Antarctic Peninsula with Quark Expeditions. It was an awesome trip with zodiac cruises, shore landings, bird watching and up close encounters with penguins, seals and whales.

Kind of cool place, have a couple trips down there, first time wearing a blue beret, than two years doing seismic work. Are the two Ladies still running the Globe pub? Seems I spent more time in there than having hot dinners.
