OLH VEHICLES

Here are some of the vehicles I’ve used over the years, mostly for travels in the Sahara and which helped inform research for the Overlanders’ Handbook.

M.A.N 8136 TRUCK

MAZDA B2500 PICKUP

VW TARO (HILUX)

MERCEDES 190

TOYOTA HJ61 (shortly)

I’ve also owned or rented 40-, 70-, 80- and maybe even 100-series Land Cruisers in Australia and Egypt, Fords and Jeeps in Iceland and the US, Discovery 2s in Australia and years ago ran a Landrover 101 in Algeria.

roversBefore that and before I knew much about anything, I also briefly owned a V8 110 but couldn’t afford to drive it anywhere, as well as a couple of 109” Land Rovers which proved too far gone for desert travels, as was an early, 7-cylinder Range Rover.
