You would have thought, after my initial experience with the Stage One, I would have learnt my lesson. But no. That just got the desire for a proper Defender doing in me, and, finally, after looking for one for a couple of years, in 2019, I started a new project. A 2001 TD5 110 Land Rover Defender.
The goal is to take my partner and two little girls on a slow road trip around New Zealand. Join me an adventure into classic design, leaky roofs and off-road shenanigans.
