For Mark’s birthday, we bought a 1970 Baja Bronco sight unseen, picked it up in San Diego, drove it to Scottsdale Arizona, took it on Overland then drove it back to San Diego. I know exactly what you’re thinking and I agree completely - Mark’s wife is a fantastic gift-giver and incredibly long suffering. Like literally suffering, bumping around in a vehicle with no air conditioning in the Sedona desert for 10 days.
Overland is an off-road event for vintage 4-wheel drive vehicles in and around the Grand Canyon. We had a blast with all our car friends and as usual, I can’t remember what we won but it was probably something like most colorful vehicle.
