South of Benghazi a couple of hundred miles in 2004. The first attached jpg is one of the local wildlife doing an inspection. The second jpg is a couple of hundred miles south of Edmonton winter of 2019.I On another note, bbyer where was your avatar pic with the Defender taken?
Given a choice of sand blowing down my neck, or snow, snow is preferable.
Also snow does not chew up the driving lights, windscreen or take the paint off the bonnet.
For pickups, we used the Single cab Defender 90 with the box on and around the plant sites. The 110 was for cross desert and back to the big city etc.
The not so good last jpg shows one of the pickups on the move. There are no roads out there; well no need for them really. In this case we were following the power lines to the next site; other times it is aim for the black smoke from the flare pits or follow the sand filled 45/55 gallon fuel drums - no speed limits but mines from WW II tend to be effective speed traps - they effectively restrain one from straying too far off the accepted routes.
Snow and cold for me are preferable. The Defenders had AC but real men do not use it. You cannot drive with the windows open when it is hot as the wind generated will burn you - like being in a forced air oven - well we did use the AC on the 110 but not the 90s as they were for around the field hopping in and out.
Not really the stuff of vacations.
