By definition, a 4x4 vehicle should be able to go almost anywhere, preferably with some comfort and an ability to act as a "camp" once you get there. Well, with this latest expedition the furthest my Disco went "into the wild" was across some grass and pine needles, but it was still functioning as a camp while I spent 4 days in St. Michaels Maryland for the Mid-Atlantic Small Boat Festival where I had my GP-14 in the water. (that's a different story)
Shown here, I have the "SUV Tent" hooked to the back and a pair of window screens/rain shields on the back two doors. I slept in the back after removing the seats and used the tent for sitting, reading, changing, and storing equipment for my time there.

I brought home my Disco over 4 years ago when I bought my SeaSprite 23. I needed a vehicle that was not a pickup for both towing and daily driving duties. The fact that I did not want an American SUV led me to either a BMW X5 or a Land Rover. I could not afford the 5er, so this lovely red Disco it was.
