Our adventure starts with a 1989 BJ74 Toyota Land Cruiser that dies if it sits still and keeps us on the edge of our toes when she’s active. A truck that is underestimated but astonishes those who see her in action.
We bought our baby in 2015 and she has been enduring a makeover which includes never ending upgrades and accessories needed to help us on our adventures throughout New Zealand.
But the biggest trip is yet to come and it is this future adventure, commencing in January 2017, that we have dreamed of since the day we bought her.
Our plan is to explore the backcountry of New Zealand’s South Island. We will start the official journey in Nelson and take dirt tracks, paper roads, gravel roads and tar seal (but only when absolutely necessary) to explore rural areas still available in this beautiful country. We will freedom camp and hike in the beautiful ranges of the South Island.
So like our FB page and keep an eye on our blog as we fill you in on the prep it takes to get there and the adventure you can experience when your off on your own beaten track.
Please note that all information on our blog is just a following of what we are doing and how we are completing projects for our vehicle. Every truck is unique, please make sure to do your own research to ensure both the safety of your truck and yourself.
