Well, I have spent the last year and a half in Colorado, and I have to say – WOW what a great experience!  But I guess I should start at the beginning, I have enjoyed the outdoors and all it has to offer since I can remember – also I have enjoyed working on vehicles.  These 2 passions have came together when I arrived in Colorado Springs.  I bought my Land Rover D2, for its heritage as a great off road vehicle.  Although fully stock, it was capable, but the Rover did need some TLC (as do most 12 yr old Land Rovers). It served as a good daily driver… but I wanted it to be more ;).  So the journey down the path of Overlanding Expeditions started.


Over the last year or so, I have been slowly building the Rover up for off road adventures… it is almost there.  For more on the Rover, see Land Rover Projects.  To date is has taken me to many hard to reach mountain passes and back country areas… allowing me to find stunning views of the Rockies.

The adventure that the Rover gets me out to are hikes, mountain biking, mountain passes, and outdoors excursions (in general).  To see some of these great adventures have a look at the Adventures section.  One may be off roading, others will be snow shoeing and other could be epic mountain passes… all of which lend themselves to my photography hobby.

There is a fantastic community of Land Rover owners, Expedition Adventurers and Outdoors enthusiasts which have inspired me to share my experiences in the Colorado outdoors.  Also I want to share some of the Trials and Tribulations of Land Rover ownership :D.  I hope that my passion and enthusiasm will encourage others to get out and find what they love. I know that there are inspiring stories out there… as I have stumble upon several of them. The one that inspired me to the point of getting out and publishing my own stories was The road choose me A great story about a guy and his adventures navigating throughout North America and soon his adventure of navigating around Africa. If you have a chance I highly recommend you take a few minutes and read his some of his story (it may inspire you too).

  1. Hello Canadian Rover: Welcome back to Canada, and the neighbourhood as well. We live just up the block on the next cul-de-sac, the house with the old Dodge. My neighbour, with the kitted out jeep, snorkle, lights, etc. has done a lot of adventuring over the past couple of years. Stop by and say hello sometime, i’m certain you would enjoy and exchange of ideas. He met a great fellow from England (LR4 I believe) while soloing the full Trans America Trail. It ended up as a 14,000km run, their adventures are on a blog that slips my mind at present. However, a splendid time was had by all. Also, the James Bay Road sounded very interesting. Anyhow, I’ll keep my eye out for you over the next little while, best regards – Steve.


  2. Sounds like a similar story… I work and spend lots of time in California, and I have been building up my 200 D2 and it’s mostly there – been on some amazing trips with the Northern Cali Rovers Club all over the state. I plan to bring back the D2 or swap it for an LR4 in the not too distant future. My trip pics on @dbrum on IG or https://vimeo.com/dbrum for some videos.

    Welcome back to Canuckistan as they like to call it down here.


    • HI Daniel… thx for the welcome back. AND I would love to find an LR3 / LR4 to get into – when all kitted up they are a great vehicle! Although I do love my D2 😀 BTW loved your videos… Do you have a drone – those shots of the coast AMAZING!!

      I’ve been to the Cali Rover club site… looked like a great group!! Lots of really super looking trails too…would love to do the West Coast sometime. I am originally from Vancouver Island, so I miss the ocean, mountains etc. Ontario is nice, and I am exploring…

      Appreciate the comments… oh keep an eye on the site, we are heading to the ALCAN is the spring that will be an epic trip.



  3. A friend of mine just saw your Disco here in Kingston, and sent me a photo. Did you know there’s a Land Rover Club of Kingston? Very informal, just five of us at present (1960, 1961, 1963 Series II and IIa, 1970 Series 3, and a 1980 Defender – would have been one more, but my wife just sold her 2001 Discovery) and essentially we just get together every couple of months. There’s even a FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/168685720530686/

    Feel free to get in touch!

    • Hi Michael, that is great… I had no idea there was a small LR community here, I have joined up with both the LRAA and OVLR groups and would love to get together with the group here… I’m actively seeking a Defender (either 110 5 door OR 130 Crewcab 😀 ), might have one in the new yr, never know. I’ll head over the FB page. Cheers!!
