Travel Therefore I am

Meet Rachel and Leo.

Two of my brazilian friends that are doing an around the world trip on their 2005 Defender 110 300 Tdi. They just spent a few days here with me in San Diego. Incredible stories. If you see them around the US in the next few months, wave them down for a chat.
Their website is in portuguese but you can Google translate it:

Same goes for me.
If you talk to them and they need a hot shower, warm soft bed, a meal or any support on the coast in New Jersey please tell them to message me....

Not that they would come to Toledo on purpose, but it is half way to everywhere. Our door is always open and the guest suite is made up. Just message me.

Land Rover had a Defender factory in Brasil until 2005 and produced the 300Tdi until then. They also had Td5s but those were imported from The UK.

LRM even did a feature story on them a few years back, the last of the 300Tdi ROW Defenders to come out of the factory, in 2005-06. Arguably the best Defenders ever, at least for expedition use. The last ones went to the lucky few ...

Sweet ride and good for them to have the time and drive for an adventure inside the US.
If they are heading to Miami, a mini Brazil, they can hang here too and chill with my Colombian and Brazilian family.

Let me know!

Awww, they're gonna miss all the snow here in the East. That's an adventure not to be missed; skidding Prii, Odysseys and Sonatas.

Texas is on the way from Las Vegas to Miami. Suggest they visit SCARR during the last week of March. http://www.scarr2013.texasrovers.org/index.php/en/
