Hi everyone,

I'm maybe not even a member yet but I can introduce myself.

We live in the Netherlands but originally i come from sweden. There I have had a few jeeps and was a very active member our local off-road club.

I have some offroading experience but ovetlanding is new too me. I look forward too getting into this type of offroading.

At the moment I'm the proud owner of a 1999 Suzuki Jimny. No mods no nothing yet. Well see what happens further. I don't really have any plans or ideas yet either.

Cheers!
/Peter

Welcome to OB! Nice to have you here, and I look forward to hearing about your adventures, and hearing about your country. Must be beautiful over there for overlanding. Never heard of a Jimny, but I just did a quick search and it looks like a awesome rig.

If you need info, just ask, you won't find a better group of folks! :)

Thanks guys!

The Jimny is THE smallest offroader in the world. But, I still hope to do some traveling around Europe with it. Maybe with a trailer it'll work out.

Vehicle tax in this country is very high so in my opinion (and budget) there aren't that many options. For a landcruiser you'll pay like 200 euro per month just tax. Then insurance and everything else.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Hi,
Thanks for the tip!
I read about it. Would be nice. We'll see it's a bit of a drive and I don't really have the jimny in the best shape yet.

Taxes suck, I know!
