I think that I'm suffering from paranoia but as I'm also suffering from schizophrenia the diseases kind of take each other out, so in the end of the day I'm quite fine.

I changed breaks on my lovely old Volvo the other day and it went really smooth.

I guess that you're right when you used the words "brakes" and "paranoia" in the same sentence, talking about a Land Rover. I haven't even opened the bottle of break-fluid yet and I've already got the chills down my spine.

The saying goes... -I prefer to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy. That's why I'll write my own blood-group on the side too.

I'm thinking of selling my Land Rover Stage 1 1977 Prototype, Vin/chassis no: 91463383C and with engine no: LR10. I'm right now in Sweden but I'll be heading south soon. Where do you think I could find someone that would be interested?

The counter says about 25000km, LT 95 gearbox, engine all done and everything in mint condition.

I'm going for another adventure and I hope to find a new lovely home for it.

Wish it was nearer to me :/

Good luck with the sale. Just make sure that whoever buys it doesn't bugger it up. Especially after all your hard work.

Hi disco2hse! Long time no seen. Is everything ok on the other side of the planet?

Yeah. Been super busy with building projects (two house renovations, new house build, printing press studio renovation and build,...). Stage 1 has clocked over its 300k km mark and probably starting to feel it a bit but going strongly as ever.

Petrol prices have limited use a bit lately though (although not as bad as in France it seems) :/

A lot of the ex-army Stage 1's have come out of the woodwork in the past year or two, which is great.
