Is Driving A Land Rover A Feat of Endurance?
I can see what they’re doing, obviously but how is that a worthy exercise for raising money? Walking barefoot to all the National Parks possibly (edit: no, still not impressed) but driving a Land Rover round the UK?Posted 6 years agoscudMember
I’ve always had a fond place in my heart for Land Rovers, but would never use one for genuine expedition use, Toyota everytime (choice of African warlords everywhere), i always found it amazing that basic design faults have carried over from the very first 1950’s models to the most current Defender, cramped seating positon, terrible side windows + heating etc.Posted 6 years agoWoodySubscriber
Mr Jarvis and Miss Byrne need to raise £1,000 for fuel and supplies.
My first thought was ” if you want to go on a driving holiday with your fiance, pay for your own bloody fuel and food”.Posted 6 years ago

Hmm – I knew a couple who decided they wanted to do a big international off road driving expedition. They were planning it for about 2 years and got a Landcruiser and started kitting it out, buying stuff themselves etc. Then about 6-9 months before they went they suddenly got all ‘Charity conscious’ and decided it was a trip for charity.
Because it was for Charity they immediately started
sponging offgetting donations of shiny new kit from various suppliers (rather than buying it), then even decided that everyone going to their ‘Bon Voyage’ party should hand over a tenner at the door. I think they ended up spending 1 or 2 afternoons of their 3 month trip doing visits to centres run by their chosen Charity. Oh, and they even got invites to dinner/spend the night at various embassies and diplomatic offices because of their ‘Charity’ status.
So yes, a sponsored holiday is taking the mick big time.Posted 6 years ago
