Similar, though much more impressive, to my cross country trip in '74 via my new Suzuki GT380 2 stroke- good times, and much simpler...

Outstanding Jack !
By definition some of the best "overland vehicles" are standard cars.

The fact that you had these made Bill scares me a bit and I'm pretty much fearless. You are bringing a separate sleeping bag for the Briggs doll, right?

I call BS, I don't see any Pelican Cases, Snow Peak gear, or even adventure pants. Its not an expedition unless you're wearing adventure pants.
