    Surprisingly, my kids think that is normal. They are used to spending 8-10 hours per day for weeks at a time in a hot smelly noisy 200 tdi defender... They were born into this lifestyle.

    It's almost always the short rear shaft that breaks. I have a spare so I may bring it along.

    I will likely put Series 2 or 3 items in where it makes sense (master cylinders, etc)

    Yeah, I am kind of expecting everything to break. So since I can't bring spares for everything I will probably bring almost nothing and just roll the dice. It will be interesting to see what parts I...

    Awesome. Is that a stove designed for propane? Or have you adapted an old 1960s white gas stove to propane as I have done?
