Hello all, we hope you are all doing good, as the evenings now start to get longer here in the Northern Hemisphere, you can hear the lawnmowers out cutting the grass and for us that normally means cleaning out the shed and starting to get the camping gear ready for the season ahead. With lockdowns and restrictions over the last couple of months we all have been pretty limited in where we could go and our appetites are certainly whetted for some serious outdoor living over this summer.

The Abenteuer and Allrad organisers have recently announced that the show’s dates have been changed to the 29th of July to the 1st of August, we all will just have to hang in there and hopefully we will shortly see some light at the end of the tunnel. We have been very busy with the TURAS Land Rover build and in this issue we have dedicated a fair bit of the magazine to the works completed so far. We are very happy with the progress we have made and if you are planning on renovating or restoring your vehicle you will hopefully get some useful information or tips from this issue.

In this issue we also tour Georgia with Tomek Maj from Land4Travel.com and explore the wild west with Roger Mercier of overlandfrontier.com.

We have a podcast interview with Emil Grimsson, founder and chairman of Arctic Trucks, who shares the history of Arctic Trucks and also explains why Arctic Trucks rely on the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta 44 for driving in deep snow and extreme cold.. We have a look at some great camp cooking options from Petromax and much more.. We do hope you enjoy this issue. The TURAS Team.
