The Land Rover called Maggie
The decision on which vehicle to use for our overland trip has proved to be a difficult one. Undoubtedly Land Rover Defenders have proved to be the most popular choice for overland trips - this could be argued on the fact that Defenders are so popular in the UK compared to any other 4x4.

My initial thoughts where around using a Land Rover Discovery, a 1993 200Tdi model, which I owned. Unfortunately, the vehicle would have needed many modifications to have prepared it for an overland trip.

Taking a vehicle that is already prepared for overland travel saves a lot of time and money.
