19 - do you have a second driveway for Rover low range testing?

20 - have you met someone you don't know in the back of a truck stop (for RURR)

21 - purchase more in tools to fix something on your Rover than it would have cost to just bring it to a shop or buy a new/correct part

Don, I'm afraid to admit I have the 21st symptom.

I bought a 12 point wrench just to undo my transmission oil drain plug when I couldn't get it loose using the special wrench I bought to remove the viscous fan. Or the special tools I bought just to change the timing belt.

At some point I think the tools will be worth more than the truck!

22) Convince your girlfriend she should get a Rover to justify another purchase.

23) You buy 2 Rovers as a company vehicle (note vehicle as combined only one works).

24) People you work with buy a Rover because you believe in the product.

25) You take so long to restore your NAS Defender you buy another one to fill its void.

26) Do you always look underneath your Land Rover before getting into it to see if the spots on the ground are from your truck? Have you ever tasted any fluid to see if it was just water or something truly leaking?

Yes.
And I can usually tell by the size of fresh drippings when its time to add more.

I think this rule also applies to getting stuck. Recognizing you're stuck is the first step to recovery!

Perhaps we need to convene some interventions to help members with their addiction. I understand off road activities is one way!

The opportunity to do some "group" therapy , like admitting your tires are just not adequate or you suffer from shock and spring envy or that a snorkel is sometimes just a snorkel
Jeff is one of the worst...he has several lr projects going and is building a house and is Mr. Mom and is a landlord...etc...etc...etc...lol!

27) You buy so many parts that you have to look through your PP history just to figure out who still owes you parts.

29: if you go to a bar and she offers you a ride in her Rover, that's a good start.

31) You do oddly charitable things for people you've never even spoke to on the phone because of some sense of kindred affliction...

32. Your wife accuses of you of sexting and having an affair after being caught on your phone in bed at 3am while you were just really checking the For Sale section of the defender source app
