Land Rover Defender – my missed opportunity

Land Rover Defender – my missed opportunity

Of all the scenarios you could come across in a Land Rover Defender, I had the perfect one within 2 hours of picking it up. A truck stuck in the mud after trying to do a u-turn across a patch of very soggy grass. ‘Got a rope?’ the driver yelled across to me. What I should have said is ‘Sorry old chap, but this shiny new Land Rover is a press vehicle and they don’t come with ropes,’ but instead I shrugged my shoulders and said ‘Sorry, no.’ So, now the truck driver thinks I have a Land Rover just for driving up kerbs outside the hypothetical school my hypothetical kids go to.
