If you read the blog of these people, you would understand they had to have it reinforced this way. Not because of paranoia. See the map on the side? The black marker lines are all the places they’ve visited in it. They have shipped that thing all over the world for the past many years and spend six months per year driving around in it. They live in Johannesburg, South Africa. They were attacked in Africa, and have had their rig held for ransom in Mongolia. When they were in the US they commented that Walmart doesn’t hassle them when they park overnight, one good thing about Walmart! You can read about their adventures and see pictures from all over the world on their blog which can be found here; http://www.landyonline.co.za/off_road/dipli/dilpli_travels.htm It’s been pretty amazing how they’ve chosen to spend their retirement years.
@ Me!: Oh wow, I can see being attacked in Africa, but held for ransom in Mongolia? Wow. Pretty harsh. Maybe they thought it was a military vehicle (not as though some people in areas of Mongolia have ever seen a car, much less a military vehicle). I think it’s really cool that the owners chose to travel the world like that. It’s sad that so many of their travels must be pretty dangerous. I hope they never go through Detroit. I’d rather blaze through Bosnia.
