Tom will fix it..

I’m the medic, and Tom is the mechanic. That was the agreement. But what if Tom needs the medic? Then I become the mechanic…

Our 1988 Land Rover Defender is a bit of gem. We’ve not driven it, or seen it in the flesh, but we have photos. And we are excited. Driving any vehicle 2,500km is a challenge, not least when it is 22 years old. But this is a Land Rover, and they are hard. Or so our new friends at True Grip Off Road told us when they very kindly gave us a fantastic 2 day training course in 4×4 driving skills and basic mechanics. The Essex cold (and snow) made us feel very far away from the Serengeti Plains and Rwandan jungle, but the vehicles and training were just class.
