  1. We all need the right tools, supplies, food, water and safety equipment when traveling to remote country. Four-wheeling and motorcycle backcountry travel, in particular, require careful planning and appropriate travel gear. In all cases, safety equipment, medical emergencies, repair tools, tire repair kits, vital spare parts and other necessities can make or break a trip. Discuss and share topics at this forum!—Moses Ludel
  2. While these aren't new technology, and have been around awhile, prices have become pretty reasonable, and some of them have gotten very sophisticated. You can get everything from still photo cameras that are only good for daytime use to infrared nighttime still cameras that work even in extremely low light, to day and night time video cameras. Most of them have motion detection, and are good for hunters looking to see what animals are crossing their favorite hunting grounds, without having to sit and watch in the pre-season, to someone who just wants to know what is prowling around outside the house in the dark at night. Some sell for as low as $69, with some as high as a $1000, and with all the different options, there is sure to be something for everyone. They are also weatherproof, and most of them come with a long lasting rechargeable battery, so you can leave it outside for days or weeks on end, and then when you want to see what it has captured, most of them have an SD card, like digital cameras use, so getting the images or video is fairly easy. The first time i saw one in use, my in laws had a night time still image version set up outside their house, for capturing deer running through the back yard after dark. We used one that did video, on a recent camping trip, and captured a bear on video near our camp site.
  3. The Land Rover has scoured the Earth, leaving its footprint on every continent and in the roughest of terrain. In the U.S. market, the Discovery and Defender 90 models have distinguished themselves as off-road, "overlanding" 4x4s. My familiarity with the Land Rover heightened in the mid-'ninties when I participated on 'Team U.S.A.' in the Land Rover Trek event, an intensive, one-day condensed version of the notorious Camel Trophy. Held at Georgia, our competition included a cross-country foot race before dawn, orienteering, a pulley descent on ropes, canoeing, slogging through deep, red clay mud on an all-terrain bicycle, driving Land Rover models in tight courses of mud, and changing tires in this muck. The final competitive segment was teeter-tottering vehicles and timed winching with the Land Rovers. Fortunately, I had the good sense to train vigorously for this event, and our team—Sue Mead, Nick Dimbleby and yours truly—earned a podium finish and trophies. We were pleased with our performance and the ability of the Land Rover, too! Land Rover also sponsored my Tread Lightly midnight presentation before the Eco Challenge participants at Whistler, B.C., an event that helped launch Mark Burnett's production career! This community forum is for Land Rover owners, whether postwar vehicle aficionados and restorers or contemporary owners. There are also many devoted Defender 90 owners, including my friend Bill Burke of 4-Wheeling America. Bill was a Camel Trophy participant, and we co-instructed Tread Lightly 4WD Driving Clinics together. Enjoy building this community of like-minded Land Rover enthusiasts and overlanders!—Moses Ludel
