Default Hello from Wiltshire

First post on here - My name is Arne Barker from Chippenham, Wiltshire. I joined 4x4 response back in July.

Have met with quite a few local (and not so local) members at two of our pub meets, and the recent ESS show at Hullavington. So I now have a good idea of who my colleagues are, and what we are doing in our area.

Regarding vehicles - well my family and I are suffering with an incurable disease which started in 1948 at Lode Lane Solihul, I caught the disease some 20 years ago, and have had a succession of Land Rover marquees ever since. Our family tally is currently five vehicles. My two are a 1957 Series One (my daily driver) and a Defender Td5 double cab (Tomb Raider look-alike). For 4x4 response activities maybe the Series one is not that practical - with no seat belts and a positive earth system - no easy way to install a CB (which seems to be a requirement today) so have decided to prepare the Td5 double cab. Having said that, the Series One is very capable in the snow.

CB is now fitted, also mag-mount amber beacon up on the roof rack, fitted with a waterproof plug and socket arrangement so it can be removed or fitted easily.

Here are some pictures...

Hi Arne, Welcome on board. Like the pictures. Do like the crane attachment on the 90. That could come in useful!! Series 1 looks great.

Thanks for the kind words of welcome.

The crane - have to admit it looks good, didn't notice it when I clicked the camera.

Coffee Shop - well Charlie WE61 had the perfect Coffee Shop setup in the back of his 101 - best coffee shop at the show think I have a picture or two somewhere, will upload for you.

Arne
