If Land Rover made an aircraft would you fly in it? Why/Why Not?
I would. Air travel is typically very boring and predictable, and I feel like an aircraft made by land rover would make it a lot more entertaining.

What’s the best thing about owning a Land Rover?
The excitement of going through a day of wheeling with nothing going wrong, and the look on jeep owners faces when I go through something with complete ease and no drama at all after their $45,000 rig just got shut down.

Been on an adventure? – tell us about it
Of the several adventures I have been on on with my countless rovers, the one that stands out in my mind would be when I took my 3rd Discovery I wheeling for the first time and the fuel pump relay gave out. Being young and very new to the rover world, I had no idea what was wrong. Luckily I had my friend Conine with me who was a Triumph enthusiast and was very familiar with English electrical systems. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to fix the problem and wound up hiking out 13 miles at about 4am. When we got back to the truck the next afternoon, we hard wired a switch to the fuel pump straight off fo the battery and it started up and drove out no problem.
If you could ask Land Rover for a particular type of vehicle what would it be?
Just bring back the 101 and throw in a set of portaled axles.
