I am a native Vermonter, I live in North Pownal, VT. I have been a Construction Contractor for 22 years.  I like to build and maintain things, probably why I am still driving a Land Rover.  I learned to drive off road at the age of 12 on VT class 4 roads and logging property.  I enjoy a lot of camping, kayaking, fishing and off-roading. I have own many off-road platforms, but Land Rovers are my favorite.

If you could ask Land Rover for a particular type of vehicle what would it be?

I would like Land Rover to make a 100 inch wheel base Defender with a powerful V8.

If you were on safari which three (living, dead, or fictional) people would you pick to bring along?

Lazz Mckenzie, living, because he is an essential on any trip.  If you have met him you know why.  Marlin Perkins, dead, because who wouldn’t want him on safari.  Bumble Bee, fictional, because who doesn’t want an alien robot that turns into a car around.
