Mmm Hmm OK

Mmm Hmm OK

  “Danananana Mmm Hmm OK, it’s Anna. Mmm Hmm. OK”   Just outside San Francisco, in a town called Chowchilla, in a RV park next to railway tracks, we met Anna. Anna taught us to sing the Blues. Anna is from the Deep South, as she speaks she sings, Mmm Hmm,...
How to be a Round-The-World DIY mechanic

How to be a Round-The-World DIY mechanic

I was raised by my Mom and sister. That sentence alone should give you an idea of my mechanical abilities. A tooth deprived ex-boxer taught me how to change a tyre and I sold him a rope to hang himself with, he returned the rope but I did not give him a refund. 20...

Charlie Mackenzie: Woman… woe-man… whoooa-man. She was a thief, you gotta believe, she stole my heart and my cat. Betty, Judy, Josie and those hot Pussycats… they make me horny, Saturday morny… girls of cartoo-ins will leave me in ruins…...

The Alvord Desert Defender Event, 2015

A blog, Oh My God. I can’t remember the last blog I wrote, I think it was back in 2012, in Uruguay shortly before my brand new Sony laptop was murdered by a Ginger who shall not be named. I plan to blog often, but make no promises, the road is my master...
A great day with the Land Rover Club Peru.

A great day with the Land Rover Club Peru.

Land Rovers and Land Rover drivers are a breed apart. I know of no other marque where complete strangers will wave at each other when passing in traffic, or will stop to talk or help a driver of the same brand. We each modify our vehicles to our own needs and taste...
Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

If you put enough people in one room intelligence of the individual gives way to the dynamics of the group. The loudest idiot is the correct idiot. “Do I look stupid!? We are four here, first in the queue! Yes there are four tills, but we want one each! Shut up little...

Music To Move To

There are songs which can transform motion into movement. In 2010 we travelled from South Africa to Kenya overland. I had purchased an 80 GB IPod before the trip and spent months ripping all my CD’s to the device. I downloaded cover art, categorised, ranked and...

Rooinekke (Rednecks) on a trek.

Back in the late 90′s Luisa and I had owned a powerful little Mazda bakkie. We lived on a farm at the end of seven km’s of dirt road and had a great time playing rally driver. Luisa was fearless on straights and over large bumps but I knew how to slide the little...
Gear Review: Two Blocks of Wood.

Gear Review: Two Blocks of Wood.

Gear review. Two blocks of wood. I clearly remember the weeks and months leading up to our A2A Expedition. Luisa and I would sit together after a days slog, have a glass of red, and discuss what needed to be done in final preparation for our departure. I, naturally,...

One Gigantic Circle

We are back in Montevideo after almost 5 months and 20 000kms. We are staying at the same hostel, Impecable, and I remember the last time I sat in the seat. We were waiting for the Land Rover to arrive and I was nervous, excited and slightly hung over. Since then we...

Overland from Pipa to Natal, Brazil.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41b1UGuZop8 From 22/12/12 until 23/12/12 we drove the beach route to Pipa Beach and from there to Natal for Christmas. The BR 101 freeway would have been quicker but driving that road is like Purgatory! From Natal we will be heading 700...
