|Land Rover 109 - Overland Expedition Prepared|
One way I keep my overland dream alive is to admire photos from overland-related websites. I first started searching independent overland expedition websites in the mid 1990's. It was an extremely slow process of attemping to search via an internet dial-up connection. The content was hard to find, and when I did, the photos were generally scanned using a low resolution. However tedious the process seemed, each new website was inspirational and the photos I viewed made an impression on me. I liked the grey sketched image (on the left) but have no idea where I found it.
I used the following quote on my first overland website...
The original websites have long vanished from web servers but a few remain... Here is one of my favourite websites:
|In and Out of Africa - Derek Tearne|
What inspires and keeps your overland dream alive?
Thanks to the wonders of the internet and image search features, I found the front of the Land Rover image (above). The Land Rover turned out to be a Series II. Unfortunately the person who took the photo is still anonymous.
