The Defender....

Having had a passion for all things Land Rover since a very young age, imagine my sheer joy at getting a '98 300Tdi Defender 90 to use as one of my first company vehicles in the UK!! Way back in May 2002, I received the news that it was to be mine.... Couldn't believe my luck!

 

It was more or less showroom standard then, but had a "county" pack applied from new, so a few little luxuries on board! The Freestyle alloys and BFG all terrains were a firm favourite from the start!

 

Together, this little Defender and I toured the UK, covering 130 000 miles until May 2008, when the boss was kind enough to give me option to buy it!!!!

 

Piggy bank smashed, the title deeds were in my hand within days, and so began part two of this Land Rovers life.... I began it all with a Safari Snorkel, and as any landy Lovers out there will know, once you begin "bushing" your ride, there is a long, hard and sometimes expensive little journey ahead of you........

 

Now three and a half years into ownership, the Defender is fully self sufficient, and always ready for the next adventure.... albeit a three day trip into the wilds of Wales..... which I need to say is some of the most dramatic, beautiful countryside I have ever seen.....

 

Having owned this truck for the time I have, and having kitted it for, not only daily use, but also overland travel, and the very much enjoyed camping trips my young daughter and I enjoy, I have come up with a few little ideas to add to our Defender... These, as developed, will be added to my "Products" section....

 

Happy Defendering!

Pretty much as it came to me... except for that Safari Snorkel.... The first little extra I bought...
Getting there slowly... Aluminium rack, nudge bar, spot lights, and Cooper Discoverer STT's!
More or less all the way now.... Just that big old white roof box to lose!
