OK one more pic I forgot. Ron was at the wheel and this is the best I could do, then the battery died in the camra. But you can see that we were going pretty fast

Damn, that is awesome. I LOVE the oil spots on the ground with the pic next to the beetle. Gotta love a rover...

Way to go Mike and Ron. That's a truly epic road trip.

Good luck with the truck Jim.

Great pix Mike. Gosh I miss Utah! I used to go to some of those places in my 109 back before Land Rovers were considered "cool" - except by some of us fanatics, and before Moab had been "discovered". I feel homesick.

Great News!

Michele D (Cube II) did a great cartoon commemorating Mike and Ron's accomplishment! I'm going to have T-shirts made up once I get the artwork to CVC.

0f course we'll fix Ron's name...

I'm in for three. One for me and two for the kidos

Excellent write up Mike. I think we should try to get this story in LRM or some magazine.
