An archaeologist's rig? (part 15)


Nope, but this one could do the job. Don’t know the year but this Landy has all the bells and whistles. It seats eight, opens up, folds down, spins, pushes and pulls stuff, bounces, and has a long wheel-base (127 or 130 inches?). It is rigged for safari viewing (check out the small hatch above the front seat!).

I was so pleased. I pointed it out to Mr Nixon who was nonplussed. He said he used to have one (for like 20 years!) but prefers a Toyota Land Cruiser. “Rovers break down.”

Sheesh. Don’t you just hate it when practicality outruns nostalgia?

We parked our Cruiser down the line (the tan one on the left) from this olive-colored Rover while visiting Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. Here you can see the long wheel base and the pop-top for viewing.

If you are a pastor, church leader, or educator who is interested in leading a trip to the lands of the Bible, let me hear from you. I partner with faith-based groups to craft and deliver outdoor academic experiences. Leaders receive the same perks that other agencies offer, at competitive prices, and without the self-serving interests that often derail pilgrim priorities. And by the way, we use busses not Rovers.
