I live in the red spot next to France and it not spain. I think that proves my point :-)
I thought I'd see what our largest station (farm/ranch) is and found this so couldn't resist posting it
Anna Creek Station is the world's largest pastoral lease in the world. Covering over 30,100 sq kms, 5.5 million acres, it runs up to 18,000 head of cattle, depending on rain conditions. Anna Creek is huge - bigger than Belgium, half the size of England, five times larger than its nearest United States competitor and is about 8,000 sq. kms larger than its nearest rival in the N.T. of Australia, Alexandria Station.
And there are just 18 people living there.
I love the 40-series. Yes those tyres are a little extreme
I've always preferred the standard narrow tyres (razor blades as we call them), they are easier to thread between sharp rocks, cheaper, less strain on the drive train and steel rims can be fixed in the bush, mags can't. Also when you let the air out they are (according to some tests) no worse than fat tyres in the sand.
That's one mean-looking rig. Is it street legal?
What really bugs me though is that there seems so be a new car launch every week !
Me too, that's one thing I like about the "commercial" versions of Landrover and Toyota. The 40-series looked the same for about 24 years, that was followed by the 7x-series which looks almost the same after 28 years and still going. They have made some changes with the last model or two, most notably coil springs on the front (good) and a V8 diesel (not so good apparently) but the design is still almost the same.
Whereas most other cars change everything 3 times a year just so they are different to the last model. What a crock.
while you're using renewables already.
I've been living on solar for 12 years and we really aren't part of the "consumer" society although I'm not short of my toys I guess, so I reckon my account in the carbon bank is in the black, or at least not as far in the red as most westerners.
ground clearance is but 4.5"
Ooo, that's a problem. How the heck do you work on anything? Do they even make jacks that low
I love our motorhome, at some parts I can crawl under it on hands and knees without touching anything. OTOH when I have to use a spanner or something the blood runs from my arms after a few minutes because I'm holding them so high.
In Australia, I'd be operating differently too
Yeah you should have a vehicle that's appropriate for your environment and personal situation.
I'm heading off to eBay to look for a 40-series with a new motor.
