    I too have been doing extensive research into the ultimate LF vehicle. I like the H1 Hummer. Not the new H2 that is all fancy, but the military H1. Not too many creature comforts but will get you there and has a bed in the back to photograph from.
    Retails for around $100,000. Anyone want to pool their money?

    I used to have one myself; I got over 252,000 miles on it before someone decided to re-arrange my front end. Too bad; it had the original engine/transmission - great running car. Now, I just drive a Honda. But, living on a small island, I don't need much more. I just keep the tripod in the back and walk where I need to.

    He is probably happy about that. Don't want to offend him.

    I love our Subaru Forester for photo expeditions, but I'd be lost without my 2500 series GMC van.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    All I require is any set of wheels that will get me and my backpack to the trailhead.

    I do a lot of road trips with my LF gear, even driving from Connecticut to North Dakota, then north wi Winnipeg andthe back east thru Niagra Falls to Connecticut camping along the way. I did all this in a Jeep Wrangler. I have owned several models and now I have a Rubicon. This has proven to be a great vehicle for these types of trips, but I've always been on my own. Now, I bought a used Jeep Cherokee 4.0L and this is really working out well. I can carry all my gear, golf clubs and other stuff for 2 two. If I need to, I can sleep over night in the back.

    My dream is that when I retire I will buy a 29 foot Class C motorhome and tour the U.S. I will get a model that I can darken a room for developing and contact printing.
    I will tow a Jeep behind for local transportation.

    There is a dealership selling them here in the bay area of California. I know they use to sell them in Santa Fe New Mexioco in the late 80's.

    The dealersip is located on Broadway in Oakland.

    ... and a Defender will return 29 miles per gallon (average urban/extra-urban) from its 122bhp 2.5L diesel. A diesel won't let you down in any weather... a petrol engine (thats gas to you US-ians!) will die in floods etc. unless it is specially equipped. Also it doesn't matter where you are in the world you will find someone who can repair it.
