An archaeologist's rig (part 2)

Station wagons are boss. Utility station wagons that go in rugged terrain are even bosser. Utility station wagons that go in rugged terrain and are owned by the Jordanian Department of Antiquities as bossest. 

I found this Moose, a Toyota Land Cruiser 50 Series (vintage late 1960s-1970s), sitting beside the Temple of Hercules (how appropriate!) in the parking lot of the Amman Citadel Museum. That was almost 30 years ago. If cared for properly, this rig could be still alive today.

It reminds me of the days when I was just a lad and rode the crummy into Oregon's deep woods.

More musing on knobby-tyred vehicles used by archaeologists are here and here.
