Like clockwork, the predictions I made only 10 months ago about the future of our public lands have come to pass (the only thing I really missed was Palin instead of Zinke). But the call to action remains the same. Even beyond the immediate threats to Bears Ears and other NMs, the radical threat to precedent that Zinke's proposals represent could undermine public lands for generations.  #publiclands #bearsears #callyourrep #publiclandsinpublichands #publiclandsinpublicpaws https://mtdrift.com/2016/11/15/land-poverty-the-future-of-american-public-lands/ @cosedivine waiting for sundown at the waterhole, 9/9/2017 #mokolodinaturereserve #waterhole #wildlife #botswana #mitsubishipajero #4x4 #overlanders One of the driving conventions in Botswana that is hard to get used to: 
Drivers will gladly putter along at 20 kmph under the posted speed limit on very deserted roads, carefully dodging every pothole... and then floor it to blast through a traffic light that's already been red for 5, 6, 7, ... 10 seconds. 😬It's mind boggling. #expatlife #botswana #gaborone #traffic #checkyoursix #deathwish #bepatient This cat?

There were so many awesome vehicles to see at Overland Expo East, not the least of which were the Land Rovers. For your viewing pleasure:

Oh, and P.S. – we got to drive one on the Land Rover Overland Skills & Awareness course (that smile you see is the result of my first experience with off-road driving. Who knew I wanted a Land Rover?):

    I love those old Defenders. Before I bought my Jeep, I looked around to see what it would cost me to get 110. In the end I determed I couldn’t afford a 110. I could have gotten a nicely restored 90 for about the same money.

    1. I don’t know what it is, but something about a Land Rover just screams “ADVENTURE!” (at least the older ones).
