Red Zone Adventure: Snow Transport

The Met Office had issued a rare "Red Warning" for snow in SE Wales, and the journey to and from work (around 70 miles) was quite varied and at times exciting. But all done in the best possible vehicle!

No point in owning a Land Rover unless it is prepared to do some work occasionally ! Land Rover Series 3, Adventure Car, Landrover Defender, Land Rovers, Guy Stuff, Defenders, Range Rover, Land Cruiser, Homestead

Working Land Rover

Ferrying straw bales, ivy and logs at a friend's wedding.

 Soft top frozen solid, snow and ice all over the car, icicles hanging from the wheel arches. Later it was covered in frozen rain and I had to chip off an inch of ice from the windscreen before being able to set off home.

This is the same model/colour Cavalier I had when I was I really liked it, even though it was a basic model with a smallish engine.
