Here's some more Land Rover smut:




I think that guy in the background owns no suits, one jacket, and one tie. Here he was at the LR2 preview:




Every time I've seen this guy, he's wearing that same jacket.

Maria Sharapova's relationship with Land Rover includes her use of Land Rover vehicles, i wonder if she will be sporting an LR2 ?

The LR2 would certainly go well with Sharapova's TAG.

However, I would prefer to see her sporting a Sport:

Aquaracer and LR2, a match made in heaven.

I like Aaron's comment: "Aquaracer? Isn't that an aftershave?"

When we (smuggler), shot this commercial in NYC last year, LRNA provided 3 black MKIII. Although, she was driven away in a Lincoln Town Car after the shoot.

Got OJ today. Haven't started reading yet, but flipped through the issue and it looks great.

Only criticism thus far is the paper quality. I would love to see OJ on nicer paper. The stunning pics look a little washed out on this paper.

Read "The Volcano Kettle". Great article, Jonathan. Only you would mention a Rigby's .470 and solids in an article about the Volcano Kettle. Love it.

Read "Radio Communication for Overlanders" by Scott Jensen. The article didn't list his call sign. I presume it's this one:

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...?licKey=635226

The radio article was solid. I really like the fact that you put the radio article under the "Skills" section of the journal. Nice touch.

I wish the pics of the Yaesu radios weren't stock photos though. The radios would look so much better mounted in trucks, something like these:




















There's a typo on the second column of page 86: "FRS, with it's [sic] extremely limited range..."

And there's a split infinitive on page 89: "Once you're familiar with the technology, it's nice to also have an HT...."

What's with the Gatorade cooler on top of that 110? This ain't no NFL game. Get that shit out of here.

On a more serious note, page 33 shows a vehicle repair on 110 using a Hi-Lift Jack to raise the vehicle. This Hi-Lifting to change tires is all the rage, and yet I have never understood it. To lift the vehicle enough to get the rear tire off the ground with a Hi-Lift, you have to do some serious lifting. Basically, you're lifting the body enough that it pulls on the body mounts and lifts the frame (at least on a Disco). You have to keep lifting until the rear shock maxes out and then lifts the axle and the rear tire off the ground. You have to max out the suspension to lift a tire. This is a lot of lifting. On vehicles with lots of suspension travel the amount of lifting required is really dangerous. The Hi-Lift has a good chance of squirting out. Why not lift the rear wheel using a bottle jack under the rear axle? You lift the rear axle a few inches and the rear tire is off the ground. It's easier and it's a lot more stable.

On the "Desert 80" article, I'm glad to see that Pasquale Benedetto and Kristina Hall are both hams:

Impressive.

OJ is quite hamsexy:

Chris Marzonie, one of the photographers for the Death Valley article (page75) is a ham too.

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...licKey=2493692

I feel the love.

John,

I sincerely appreciate the detailed feedback.

We are working on this. Cover thickness up and inside pages up slightly with a different finish to better display the images.

They lived out of the truck for nine months. That is how they washed their cloths. A little detergent and a bumpy road= clean diggs.

A field repair in Africa. Use what you have.

I would have probably blocked the suspension and used a second hi-lift for safety, but such are repairs in the field...

Hi-Lifts are very effective, though heavy tools (and should be properly stowed).

Thanks again for all of the feedback!

At the end of the trip, did one of the guys sneak up on the trail leader and pour the Gatorade on him?

EEEEEEK!

Nothing says love like the Icom 7000 video output.

Sweet!

so far so good. powered the radio, plugged in the face plate and mic and a/v output to the MKIII's a/v input. video and audio connectivity is seamless through OEM TV module option along w/ after market wire harness which provided me w/ auxiliary video and audio input. the MKIII is still as stock as it can be nothing was butchered. hopefully the radio install will be smooth as well. i'll post more pics as install progresses.

I missed an apostrophe? I will never live this down. Thanks so much for pointing it out, John. The odd split infinitive I can handle; misplaced apostrophes drive me nuts. I might recall all the existing copies and white-out every one.

Heck, the clothes washer was my favorite mod! We all bolt lights and racks and stuff to our vehicles and call them expedition machines; it takes ingenuity to make a clothes washer out of a drink cooler. Just too bad Home Depot coolers don't come in Limestone or Conniston. Think of it as G4 Orange . . . ?

Good feedback on the paper quality. I have no doubt we'll be doing some running tweaks.

I agree on the radio photos. I believe time constraints kicked in there.

Awesome Han !

Maybe there's a 7000 in my future after all.

I'm curious though, you mention an after market wire harness for the AUX inputs - but i thought there was one there, from the factory ?
