    Default Hi There! (and thanks for all the advice)

    Hi All

    I'm a long time lurker of the forum and thought it about time I introduce myself and say thanks to everyone here for all the good advice I've gained so far.
    In Feb I went against all that good advice and got myself my dream car a Defender 90.
    Although I will be sepending most of my time in the Landy threads, I look forward to learning everything I can from the whole community.

    Here's a picture from our recent trip to the Tankwa Karoo National Park.

    Be sure to get a Wildcard, if you haven't already. Not unreasonably priced at all.

    One day we hope the money will roll in through the blog to pay for our galavanting around Africa, if ever. But until then, it's regular boring day jobs for the both of us. Sometimes, with the right motivation ie: owning and keeping a Landrover, you will do almost anything to pay, and keep paying for it. :-)

    Don't worry, you'l get used to them, it's just your Landy talking to you. We have a radio, but we don't bother with it as our Landy makes enough 'sound' aka noise of it's own The turbo sounds like a canary on steroids. I love it. We have to stop talking to each other over about 80kph.

    btw, you will need to prepare yourself for the Landy jokes, especially from the Toyota guys ;-)

    And Landys don't leak oil, they mark territory.

    Ha ha makes for some "quiet" time on long trips. I'll have to read up here on all the "creative" comebacks used in the Landy's defense
