Rambling Gadabouts is up and running to share the bumps, bruises and photographs ahead. Merely a seedling thirteen years ago, our passion for embarking on an extended itinerary-less world adventure has been nurtured through strategic planning and sacrifice into our current objective: PROJECT BANSHEE. With our belongings downsized to the mere essentials and our home stuffed into a sea-can, our drive is to experience countries, cultures and people abroad for the next 9 months. We will always opt for interesting over easy and we aspire to hone our photography abilities with so many unique and interesting possibilities. Feel free to comment, ask questions and make suggestions as we’re interested in hearing from you. Our first Field Status Report dispatched from our yellow 1969 Series IIA Land Rover on the African continent is nearly ready for posting. Stay tuned. Cheers, Tamaira & Michel

Great trip. Have good safe time
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Bryan and Susan
Thanks for the support. We’re rolling into a repair shop this week to take care of some issues before hitting up the Garden Route and heading north to Namibia.
Great to hear from you. Keep rolling along.
After working a week on the Yster Ratel near Durban, we’re finally ready to keep rolling again. Hope all is well in Red Deer. Cheers.
A fond Hello from these old fogies in Culp. Thanks for adding us to your contact list – we’ll be following your rambling with great interest. Happy rambling!!!
Keeping this old Landy running may require a farmer on the team – let us know if you’re interested!
Uncle Buck would go give you a hand but he’s frozen solid! Sorry!
If he could just get thawed out long enough to make it here, he’d have the opposite problem. We’re constantly overheating and just can’t take in enough fluids. They say Africa is not for sissies and we’re finding out that this is too true.
We are very interested in giving you a hand. it may take us a few days to get there, by then you should know what repairs you need so let us know and we can bring them along. hahaha
love mom & dad
Could have definitely used a hand. Spent a week welding up the frame/fuel tank mounts and overhauling the brakes, prop shaft and various seals. We’re just installing a second stainless steel fuel tank today before firing up to head down the Garden Route. Meet us in Cape Town and we’ll pick you up at the airport on our way by.
sounds like you had to do alot of work on the old girl. By the time you are done with it it will be like brand new!! See you in Capetown.
The plan is for a full scale restoration along the way, however the accountant’s budgetary constraints are hampering my efforts…..
Hallo from all of us at 1322! Thanks for sharing Rambling Gadabouts – enjoy Capetown :)
Thanks Yzelle. We miss Hatfield and are enjoying Africa! Take care and keep in touch.
I love reading about your adventures! Looks like you are having a great time-be safe!!
Thanks Courtney. We’re enjoying the slow pace of our travels. We just finished a couple weeks of trekking in the Himalaya – new post soon. Hope all is well in Edmonton. Take care, Tamaira
