Welcome to the Land Roamer's blog!

I created this blog to keep my family and friends informed about the Land Roamer’s 
preparation, planning for the trip and later to keep in touch during my overland adventures.

Having had both a Land Rover and a Land Cruiser, I decided that I would call my 
4x4 camper-truck, a Brimont Brutt (more info here) "Land Roamer".

To roam: "To travel purposefully unhindered through a wide area. It suggests wandering freely
 and often far afield."  Etymology: Middle English, 14th century, Merriam-Webster.  

"Live for the JOURNEY, not the Destination!"

3/ Sumbawa











The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora was the most powerful in human recorded history. The eruption column reached the stratosphere at an altitude of more than 43 kilometres. All vegetation on the island was destroyed.
The ash from the eruption column dispersed around the world and lowered global temperatures in an event sometimes known as the Year Without a Summer in 1816. This brief period of significant climate change triggered extreme weather and harvest failures in many areas around the world.
