This is the stuff you are here to read.
My daughter RovErica captured this picture tonight. It’s kinda ironic, we are celebrating our independence from Great Britain today and I drive a British vehicle. Happy Independence Day or as the British call it Happy Treason Day. Either way remember the sacrifices brave men have made to allow you to sleep under the warm blanket[…]
In all honesty I could care less about local radio. The “We’re OVERSTOCKED car ads” alone make me want to drive off a bridge to my certain death. I mean seriously, how is the fact you were stupid enough to become “overstocked” on automobiles make you think I need to come down and buy one?
Hello beautiful what are you doing in a place like this?

“I Took My Unreliable Old Land Rover Off-Roading, And It Broke Down Almost Immediately” – Wes Siler
“The feeling of taking a broken machine, struggling with it, then eventually enjoying a tangible indication that he succeeded (the bike driving out of the shop under its own power) provides a concrete sense of accomplishment he struggled to replicate when his day revolved vaguely around reports and communication strategies.”
“The panel “wants” to go back the way it started.” he said admiring the job.
About a mile later I got a very satisfying crunch sound. “I guess its broken now,” I thought to myself.
We spent the evening discussing cars we’ve owned, some sea stories from serving the Marine Corps, and even politics. That may have been the most civil political discussion I’ve ever been a part of.
Thanks for reading, I hope you find what you are looking for.
If this is anything like my garage good luck finding it
Just a little about your humble blogger
I’m a former United States Marine, a grandpa, a dad, and a husband. I haven’t aspired to be much in life beyond all that. That’s probably a good thing, because those four things consume my every waking thought. This blog is about my ownership of a Land Rover here in Oklahoma. I also occasionally blog about history, Oklahoma’s freakish weather, family, and even sports. My aim is to entertain and instruct when possible. I encourage you to comment or you can contact me by email at okierover @ gmail dot com or at the social media site links found on the blog. Thanks for reading and Happy Rovering.
