Toyota Hilux AT37 Neil.jpg

Hei, just joined OB - Good to be here....

I am a Brit (English) based in Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway.

My vehicle is a Toyota Hilux D-4D D-CAB (Seventh Generation) Arctic Trucks (AT37), which I use for driving around Norway, as well as annual expeditions (Iceland, Faroe Islands, etc.).

I have a hytte (mountain house) in Sirdal, which is usually an interesting challenge to get to in winter - Having such a vehicle is really important in these common winter conditions.

Recent 4 week expedition to Faroe Islands and Iceland, summer 2015 (ICE2015) really captured my overlanding enthusiasm. We are returning back to Iceland for 6 weeks expedition (leaving next week - 03 July, 2017) to continue the adventure, and take on more challenging roads, river crossings and situations (ICE2017).

Below is a short after-movie video we made about ICE2015, which provides a quick overview of our trip - hope you like it...


Would like to meet up with other OB Member, and share info and experiences.

If you are interested in following our forthcoming 6 week expedition around Iceland (ICE2017), we will be publishing daily website blog, with photos, GoPro video, maps, info, etc. www.ice2017.no

Look forward hearing from you and connecting up :)

Cheers
Neil

Hei Jake
Thanks a lot for your kind message.
Good to hear you like what we are up to with ICE2017 and the Hilux AT37.
Thanks for following us over the next 6 weeks on our Iceland adventure.
I think it's going to be very interesting and exciting.
