We have found the right vehicle for our journey - a Landrover Defender 130. It has been rebuilt into a station wagon and is longer than a normal 130. The Landrover specialist Foley in the UK will now recondition the vehicle and prepare it according to our needs. Ola went to visit Foley Specialist Vehicles in mid-February to prepare all the detials on site. Our plan is now that the whole Ringdahl family will fly to the UK to pick up our red Defender on March 26. Then we will drive it back to Sweden for some final preparations before hitting the road again. Our preliminary departure from Sweden, with destination Istanbul, is mid-April.
