We’ve been mogged

A deposit was wire-transferred so it’s official.

Anne and Laddie have been mogged by a Mercedes Benz Unimog 1300L. It’s a 1990 model with just over 41,000 kilometers. After this former German army ambulance has had some of its military stuff decommissioned, some parts will be upgraded and a full repaint will complete the job.

Now how did we ever land up here?

When we realized we weren’t ready to part with some of our cashable assets we had to revise our budget. At about the same time we happened across the folks at Tern Overland who are into minimalist travel. They inspired us to reconsider some of our wants and needs. The ambulance box is also smaller than our original cabin plans so it was back to the drawing board.

We’re comforted to know that we’re not alone. There are other people out there overlanding with an ambulance box. We gained confidence in our scheme and took ideas from Ubelix. Now we’ve got ourselves a retirement project!

Curious – what’s around the next corner? Wandering, searching to find, where do I belong? Between the old and new world. Always looking for an adventure.
