This issue brings the final episode of our TURAS Landrover Defender build, where we finally have a rejuvenated , expedition ready Defender that is ready for its next 20 years of adventures. We share our experience of adding various new parts including new crossmember, snorkel, drawer system,dual battery system and wheel arches. We also tried to reclaim and recycle as many old parts as we could. This third part also encompasses the kitting out of the Defender for its new camping adventures, adding a great new K9 Roof Rack and Accessories from Eezi-Awn. Tomek and the crew from Land4Travel take us on a fascinating tour of Kyrgyzstan , a landlocked country in Eastern Asia. Our Partners at DARCHE celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the company with a new special edition swag. In our article on the Joys of Camping we reflect on why we go camping and touring in the first place and why this is so good for you. We take a look at the versatile new Dual Battery System from CTEK and also have a follow up piece on the new CS FREE portable charger now that we’ve been using it for a couple of months. Having spent so long confined by travel restrictions we also took some time to build a pizza oven and take a look at the history of the humble pizza. We also had a chance to check out the new ARB Zero Electric Coolbox, a dual zone coolbox that provides fridge and freezer compartments.
Anyways as things start to return to some sort of normality we are looking forward to getting out and about and touring again, we guess you all feel the same way. Perhaps we will see you at Abenteuer & Allrad this year, as this expo, the premiere Offroad Expo is now going ahead on 21st-24th October, the first time it has ever taken place in the Autumn.
Take care everyone and we hope you enjoy this issue..
The TURAS team
