I decided not to continue with my film career because of the political restrictions imposed on funding films in South Africa. I remembered the Camel ads in cinemas in the 1970s and then went back to my love for adventure and decided to take travellers into Africa like I did in the 1980s. The Series Land Rover fitted the overland requirements of reliability, serviceability and availability of spares perfectly.
My current one – a 1984 Series III 109 station wagon.
Rross Mk II – acronymn for “Rock & Roll OSSewa”. Rross Mk I was a 1976 VW Microbus with which I took travellers into Africa in the 80s and 90s. Rross Mk III was a Chevy G10 classic van with which I travelled 19000km in 6 months through the entire USA in 2015.
Successfully crossing the SA/Botswana border at Pontdrift with the Limpopo river in flood. More than 40 4x4s on the banks and Rross the only one who even attempted the crossing.
The four snow/mud tyre chains which gives it almost the same abilities and more traction than differential locks.
… Rross was handbuilt over 2300 hours. Every overlanding trip breathes life into Rross and its occupants.
