I have named her "The Green Rover". During the years that I have owned her I have learned her mechanical limits and my driving limits. With practice I've learned to expand my driving limits and have modified my Series Land Rover's limits where needed for the type of travel I like to do. I originally purchased my Land Rover to work as a ranch vehicle but as wanderlust set in she spent more time traveling than working on the ranch. After a while I gave in, sold most of the livestock and transformed her into a long range expedition style Land Roverequipped for extended primitive travel and camping I tend to travel alone with an Irish Wolfhound, good books, and a camera. I'm prone towards a gypsy style of travel where destinations are optional and not necessarily desirable. Some days I stop in one location and wait several hours for the sun to move into the right location for a picture and other days never break camp because I'm trapped in a good book. About the only time I pay attention to schedules and preplanned routes is when I'm leading a touror just traveling with others. Over the years My Series Land Rover, dogs and I have meandered through North America, East - West from coast to coast and North - South from about half way up Canada to the Mexican border. The majority of my Land Rover travels tend to be in the greater Four Corners area. The longest I've been out on a single Land Rover camping trip so far is 3 months. During the years that I have maintained and traveled with The Green Rover I have learned and experienced a number of things I would like to share. There is lots of good stuff hereincluding some nice scenic pictures. For some reason every time I start reading her site, I have the uncontrollable urge to just get in my truck and drive, or wrench on it or kiss it. Tim Smith 2007 O'Kane on Land Rovers, a story from the July1969 issue of Car Driver. A fun read. How watching TV changed my life Things to do: Before the trip Preparation helps you get home intact (Not from the book) Things to do: After the trip keeping your vehicle and gear in good condition (not from the book) Cooking on the trail (3 selections from Chapter 12, cooking on the trail ) Trail etiquette (This is the complete chapter 14 of my book The Essential Guide to Overland Travel in the United States and Canada without the illustrations) Water crossings(This is just part of one section in chapter 19, Driving on primitive trails in different terrains. This selection covers water crossings and is provided to give you an idea of the kinds of information you can expect to find in my book. The Essential Guide to Overland Travel in the United States and Canada ) Back issues of The Aluminum Workhorse (Scanned into pdf format) The Aluminum Workhorse was the news letter of the now defunct Land Rover Owners Association (LROA).Started in 1984, the LROA was meant to be many things - a local club organizing trips and social events for local members, an umbrella organization for chapters of the club across the US, and a channel for Rover owners to meet and share data about all sorts of subjects of interest. Part of the organization's value to the members was the club newsletter, called the Aluminum Workhorse . The AW was the channel which the members used to communicate with the club and each other - sharing tips, tricks, and the thousand and one different pieces of information that can help an owner to live with a car as unique as an old Land-Rover.

MARTIN WALTER LTD. A high percentage of the Land Rovers taken around the world are Dormobiles. On a per model basis I strongly suspect that Dormobiles are the most traveled model of Land Rover. Every person who purchased a Land Rover Dormobile from Martin Walter had travel in mind, often long distances to exotic locations. I'm always happy when I see another Land Rover caravan out on the trail still exploring the world.

This section presents my personal thoughts and current understandings on the subject of optimizing leaf springs and suspension for expedition travel.

This link takes you to a web site where Nick Kilvert shows how to convert a Defender bulkhead to fit a Series truck. This conversion is easier if you also convert to power steering as the Defender foot wells are deeper and interfere with the Series steering box mounting location. It is also easier if you score a Defender accelerator pedal and convert to cable linkage.

Winter in Flagstaff AZ Some people have asked where I have Driven my Dormobile so I thought I would add a map. Up until recently my truck has been based along California's Monterey bay so most of my travels have been in the Western US and Canada. But we have spent some time traveling and exploring out East. The Green Rover camped at Kane Creek just outside Moab The Mendo recce mail list was created in 1994 to plan for an exploratory trip into the Mendocino National Forest. This temporary list has since grown to become a Western US focused Land Rover discussion group and the original exploratory trip has become an annual gathering of list members. While most list members are located along the Western US coast, there are members across the US and Canada. Over the decades we have grown into an extended family. Children have been born and have grown up as we shared more than just Land Rover tech information.We have grown into what could be called an extended Land Rover family, though some members no longer own a Land Rover, they keep the extended family connection. Our annual gathering is the last full weekend of April, come sun, rain or snow. New members are always welcome, and you can participate as much or as little as you wish. Though it would be nice if you introduce yourself when you join just so we can welcome you to the group. HOW TO JOIN: Go to groups.google.com Search for mendo_recce, or try this link. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mendo_recce Request membership. Then answer the questionsabout Land Rovers in the request. This is to determine if you are a real person.If you look to be a real person and not a bot, Ben, the list administrator, will add you to the group. OUR ANNUAL GATHERINGS: Our annual gathersduring the last full weekend in April are usually at the Cedar Camp campground in California's Mendocino National forest. But due to forest fire activity the location is subject to change. We have a potluck meal Saturday evening and gather for a campfire afterwards.Most people arrive and set up camp Friday so as to be ready for a trail drive Saturday morning. Some arrive a day or two earlier to secure a prime camp spot. This is a family event and children are welcome as are well behaved and socialized dogs as long as they are under control. Camping is primitive so be sure to bring your own water and to pack out your own trash. Mendo XV 2009 Mendo XX 2014 Mendo friends around the camp fire at an annual gathering
