So whose well setup (RTT, mattrax, etc) 110 was on the Skyline drive on Sat? Was heading N just above the Rockfish Gap entrance.

On Friday evening I came across a light sand color long wheel base LR on Sunrise valley drive in Reston, VA. I'd say it was a RHD 110 but I saw it at the last minute and focused on honking/waving while still avoiding the cars around me. Anyone here? Can't remember if it had 3 or 5 doors but definitely windows in the back and roof rack.

Yesterday I was driving the 90 on Ocean Ave in Spring Lake NJ heading south when the chick I was driving with notice a guy we just passed trying to wave me down or the guy that was pulling out of a parking space. I started to slow down and noticed that it was a grey 90 with galv chassis and a not so V8(diesel) engine ticking away. He pulls out and I slow down enough to wave back. Hazarding a guess that it was Chris Vitale. Wished I had stopped but couldnt.

Maybe they have a soft top that is removed and a tarp to keep rain out temporarily? Think I know who this sad chap is......

Man, I must live in the most non Rover city. As far as I know there are only 2 other defenders in the Jacksonville area. I never see another one...

No worries. I keep the top off all summer. Tarp is to help keep rain out. It does look ghetto, but it works. Don't drive it everyday. The FJ is for that. You should have stopped and said hello. I was in backyard drinking beer and smoking cigars.

Fwiw I like it! That's what a trail rig should look like! They can't all be used for cruising to Nordstrom's.

Keith...did I meet you when I picked up rims from Justin? Was that your place? Or did I just make that up?
