A strange time for the world – “unprecedented” gets used a lot at the mo – and its true. At least two of my friends have this COVID 19 wretch, one in China and one in the UK, and the ructions it causes globally are evident – less so are the ones it will continue to cause for years to come.
So first – I hope those reading this are well, and staying safe.
Before the immediate lockdown here in the UAE I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the northern deserts of Umm Al Qawain with a range of lovely old Series trucks, exploring dunes and camping at small oases.
Here are some highlights…
Series 2 109 – exhilarating to drive and a great load carrier
Series 1 88 – nippy and goes anywhere!
In camp at a small oasis as the sun lowers – Lightweight and Series 1 been working hard
My friend Mark in the dunes with the Series 2 109
Series 1 – a virtual twin of my truck in Zimbabwe
Mark again – I took the pic – as we clean and dry kit after the trip!
