Yep, that was me careening between lanes, trying to get alongside you.

And, yeah, my D-90 is pretty heavily laden. I think of it as Batman's Utility Belt expanded to vehicle-size. Nice to know I can always run to the truck and grab a pick-axe or floor jack, if everyone in the office forgot theirs.... British Pacific actually has a picture of it in their catalog, titled "Weight is the enemy!"

Hey, next time you see another Rover in hot pursuit, slow down so he can give you a wave!

LOL... you know when you are chased down by a D90 like yours... i'd have to think about slowing down.

sorry i was kinda late to pick up my kids from hapkido.

anyways... i think we'll see each other quite often. i'll slow down if you promise you won't launch shovels at me. hehehe.

It's a deal. Shovels will remain confined to their mounts.

Hmmm, perhaps you work outdoors?

How often do you use a floor jack or a pick-axe at work?

Do you really carry all that......stuff.....everywhere you go? Seems like an opportunity for free Land Rover memorabilia.

I work at a newspaper, and have absolutely NO legitimate use for pick-axes or floor jacks in my office. I just like being prepared for those 6σ eventualities....

I do carry a whole lot of stuff everywhere I go. And, yes, I'm probably at risk of memorabilia theft. I've just got my fingers crossed knowing that most of that gear is useless to the average hooligan.

One evening I was parked on some empty side street in Venice, and returned to find a couple scar-faced Hell's-Angel-types leaning in over the doors, checking things out. I almost turned tail, but steeled my nerves and approached them. An interesting revelation came when one of them grunted something along the lines of "Wouldn't want to mess with you, because with that truck, I know your gun is bigger than mine." No gun, but if that's what he's thinking, it's fine by me.

this is another way of safely keep your cargo in the cargo area. the retractable net was very nicely designed. i am also impressed w/ the metal cargo barrier. no drilling or extra hardware to install. perfect fit.

the side cargo nets are also well made and elegant.

how quickly you forget to drive w/o those park distance sensors... i'm spoiled.

i'm impressed at how many pieces were designed to fit the sensor in the winch tray.

The worst is sitting in the car with the engine running, while parked on the street in NY, when someone walks behind the car and stands there waiting to cross the street. That sensor is buzzing away like nobody's business.

It does make parking idiot proof though, don't even need to use the mirrors. I never tried it but, you could probably parallel park with your eyes closed. Since I sold my NY Defender the other day, I've been driving the wife's MKIII, very nice indeed.
