Re: Overland Expo 2010

All you need Jage is the Fuso and a couple of bolts!

It was interesting talking to the Fuso's owners, while a small crowd gawked at it (and ignored the two Sportsmobiles in the visitor center parking lot).

They had lived in Baja for five years and wanted a better camper with 4WD, so they built this creature. It had four tires on the rear axle, but they were going to switch that to just two E range tires, since the camper weighed less than 10,000lbs. What I thought was crazy was the tall step ladder (hung on the back in that photo) that was needed to get in and out of the beast. You wouldn't want to be going up and down that after a few beers.

Talking about tires, I showed the Fuso people my new Extreme Air compressor, and the guy mentioned the importance of airing down for cross country travel, especially in Namibia where they had visited for a few months. It's the only way to out run the elephants, the guy said.

You meet strange and interesting people in the desert.
