The last month or two has been a wild ride for enthusiast rallies - first Easter Jeep Safari, then most recently I was at Cruise Moab, they were huge fun, but being a Land Rover enthusiast, it goes without saying that I was feeling a bit out of place. Luckily, the Arizona Land Rover Club holds a fantastic annual rally that we usually attend each year, and it happened to be this past weekend in Cottonwood, Arizona. It was time to load up my Series IIA and head "over the mountain" from Prescott. Google maps reliably informed me that it would approximately take an hour and five minutes to reach my destination. Unfortunately, that isn't in vintage Land Rover time, and there happened to be this fantastic bar-b-que joint in between the two that Clark and I ended up finding, so we made it in about three hours. A few words of advice, steep hills, and a complete lack of brakes in a vintage car can be a scary thing.
