. Goes offroad: Yes,
West Tulsa adjacent to Waverly Drive has been closed, looking for another nearby.
Why Land Rover:
The most solid vehicle I've ever owned.

How it all Began:
Luck...bought it because it looked like it would make a good work truck.

I do as much of my own work on the truck as possible. When it's over my head I take it to O'Briens. I love off roading and have a place at Grand Lake about 25 mins. from the trails below the dam.
. Crazy Land Rover Story:
In West Tulsa...locked in low, engine braking screaming on steep, rocky descent in a major thunderstorm. Long mud holes now deep enough to run brown water up onto the windshield. A particularly deep and rutted mud hole at the bottom of the descent that I hoped to avoid by using a slightly less formidable drive around. I had no choice but to drive in as the detour was blocked by two "Sam's Offroad" extreme jeeps, one using his on-board welder to repair something behind the winch bumper of the other. The look on their faces as I eased by through the 2' deep muck so as not to splash them was priceless.
