My first reaction was...No CD Player? Then it dawned on me that lights should be higher up on the list than CD player. I do need to work on my priorities.

Ah that second list of "nos" are things the landrover's my company use don't have: They're very basic and very powerful. They're task-orientated, not human-orientated!

Have your guys started using Land Rovers with the TD5 engine yet, or are you still making-do with the 200/300TDi versions?

[TD5-powered jobbies a real flyers, even when you're towing a couple of tons of trailer behind you]

I have no idea! We have guys at work whose job it is to look after the vehicles; I'm just a user!

I'll remember this if I ever need you to do an 80MPH trrailer-towing dash from the South of England to Scotland for me.

[Ask footpad - we needed to change the tyres on the Land-Rover when we arrived, because they'd disintegrated... the return-journey was not quite so fast because we were carrying a lot more stuff on the roofrack. Damned aerodynamics]

Defensive/offensive driving training?

What do you do, again?
Sounds like a lot of tense, but genuine, fun.

Offensive on the armmuscles, yes.

We do "defensive" driving on the road when just doing routine transport over national roads (meaning: conservative & safe); but because we do our comms in some dangerous places, we do other styles of driving too.

I work in the installation/maintenance of comms networks, which I suspect is a more boring answer than you expected!

That almost sounds like my Toyota Landcruiser FJ40 that I sold a couple of years ago. It did have headlights, and locks, but very little else. No comfort, the thing was a tank. There was no heater to speak of, no radio, and it even went to 11! (Mpg that is!)

Land Rovers have a very high durability factor.

Do you at least get to bring a cushion? Otherwise your poor butt is going to be sore if you're doing lots of off-road...

We bounce around so much that the cushion would probably fly off somewhere anyway! Everything is bolted or strapped down!
