awesome .... Cows are genetically programmed to think feed comes from the back of a land rover ... every cow in the UK has been fed from a land rover ...

The cow race is pretty funny. Take it easy (or any way you can get it.)

Still great advice though since he is travelling East. I wouldn't have thought about it either. Probably will run out of winter blend soon. but hopefully he will also run out of winter weather!

can't you just put a gallon of regular gas in and top up with diesel to prevent waxing?

Hi Jason,
This thread is excellent, I should have stayed with you and the Land Rover and enjoyed the road trip.
I never relised there was such great support from Defender owners in North America.

This is my second (vicarious) trip across the country in a 110. The first was from Alabama (I think) to Alaska with SonnyAK, it was cool he took us along.

Hey Bryan!

It's never too late. Sell me your 130, I'll fly to BC to pick it up, and we'll drive together to Orlando. I will even throw a ticket so you can go and see Mickey! All on me and you won't have to drive.

Bryan, good to see you joined.....

Well based on road conditions and closed stretches of roads, along with people who dont belong on the road really limited on how much I could travel today. I only clicked off 300 miles today. I will try to start early in the morn and try to get to central Kentucky, I am in Grand Island, NE tonight......

Thanks for the offer but I'm still waiting to drive it myself, I'm flying back to the UK this month to collect it and arrange shipping.

Jason- awesome trip!! Thanks for posting, and all the best.
I bought my first 110 a very long time ago from Vancouver- 2.5 NAD, so very slow and quite loud. Drove it home to NC, and loved it. In fact, I encountered a herd of elk similar to your cows early one am headed across Nevada.
On another trip, encountered the closed I-80 d/t winds and snow- all great memories.
lastly, I considered the truck you purchased, as well as the other for a friend, but we couldn't get all the details to work between us. Bryan offered the same service of assisting with customs, and was extremely helpful and knowledgable- welcome aboard Bryan!!
Remain safe, and continue the memories, Cheers!!!

It feels great to cross into Iowa, and get to shed my jacket. Clean the sand off the windows, and refill wiper fluid. I don't care if I ever see snow again. He is a video of the two inches of ice I was driving on this morn...

Great thread. It's getting me stoked for my upcoming adventure. I'm driving a 2.5NA 110 from the docks home to Colorado next week.
