The starting point, home dec 06
Mar 19, 2007
Here we go then, the start of our dream of a lifetime. We have Bronwen, he is our 1981 Land rover 101 ambulance. He is in stunning two tone paint and our friend (i hope). After viewing several vehicles we decided he was our best option being Ex MOD but having only one downfall, his incredible thirst! You are literally talking 10-12mpg. But hey! on the plus side this is a petrol V8, the well proven Rover V8 3500cc. Well our trip will last till september 2007, so follow us through our journey. I am sure there will be many tears of joy, sadness and laughter, however it isnt long till we go now so the real hardship begins. The dream we started planning over a year ago is now a reality with the ferry booked and we have the vehicle and the money, we are really going! Hope to see everyone before we go in march 2007 and there will be tears as we go i am sure, however i hope we have a relatively easy trip down through, round and back from Africa.
