Here are a few articles I've been reading online, not much to keep me from scratching the itch of a Grenadier being over a year out for North America. But they're entertaining reading and daydream fodder.

a Grenadier being over a year out for North America
How about a trip to Europe?

Enjoy the food, the historic buildings, take a cruise on the Rhine, enjoy a wine tasting in Eltville and ask a dealer for a test drive on the Grenadier.

I will join you and be your guide, if you want. :)

I'll gladly be over when time allows, who knows I may end ups working back in Bremen, although it's a very long shot at this point.

I will say however, that if INEOS allow us to take delivery of the vehicles in Europe then that may be an option / excuse for me to do a bit of a tour. We could cunningly arrange the Inaugural 'Concourse du mud' ' as part of the 'Global Grenadier Club' European event schedule...

It's amazing what a 50-60 year old Land Rover can accomplish, even though the seats aren't heatedI
It cannot be doubted people are a bit soft these days.
What would Colonel Blashford-Snell say about it all?

First he would charter a small plane to get a god overview :cool:

Old school JBS has his own wings
I read that he had a good relation to all sort of animals. But at the Nil and the Darian Gap he used airplanes and no eagles to find the best routes.

His expeditions were classic British military overkill. But the books are a cracking read.

This looks like a good day trip in the Grenadier for those near Wales
I am sure I will find similar here

That's a great video, thank you!

Good comparison of cars and partially the tires as well.

I'll definitely be there with my Grenadier (if I have it by then...).

Let’s hope plenty of us get our vehicles by then and can have a meet up. That would be fun 😎

I think the happiest participant is that dog co-piloting the Discovery.
Is a bit of an advert for rigid axles and skinnies, isn't it...

Maybe a Grenadier meet up, at the Abenteuer Allrad Kissengen 2023 would be in order for those that have their vehicle by then 🤔https://www.abenteuer-allrad.de/en
I've been meaning to go there for a few years now! but every year it clashes with a wedding, or some other unavoidable event. Maybe 2023 is the year
