Having been waiting for a beach since August, got a call from a friend who had seen this in the local dealer. 3 hours later we have bought a 150 4motion beach which we should be driving within a week. No idea why I can’t get the picture straight! Our existing order which had proved difficult to get a date from a different dealer on us now cancelled and deposit on the way back.

The van was approved by my 3 year old who after climbing inside, announced we could have it as it has a diff lock! Suspect we will be spending a lot of time out in the van.

good luck to everyone else waiting, shows the factory is producing something and regardless of any 6.1 doubts I have, massively excited so worth the loooong wait.

Just need to do the painful bit and make the transfer, after buying a house, it’s the largest one off purchase I have ever made so best it lasts!

Don't need one of those, a 6-inch nail through their foot does the same job.

Congrats though!

Congratulations. Great opportunity. Great decision. Laughed at your 3yo comment about the diff-lock after reading your posts in the diff-lock thread.

yep, I have nobody else to blame. He has insisted he comes to Dubai on the next trip to "show me how the diff locks on the jeep work in the desert" I have no chance at all!!!! Still, start them young, he has been riding an electric mx bike since before his 3rd birthday and everything lego is about cars. going to be an expensive few years coming up I suspect!

We have already planned a few trips which hopefully the C-word allows:

Switzerland to Lake Silvaplana for kite surfing
Croatia in the summer
Poland to Norway around the baltic to see the northern lights in September
Morocco to Mauritania in December (delayed from this year, jeep trip as Beach won't be off road ready)

Last night over dinner my wife announced that to justify the cost she fancies Alaska to Argentina before Tommy starts school....

Amazing ambitious and fabulous! If your son ever can’t make it on any of your trips, throw a box of Lego in the back, I promise not to be too disruptive ;)

If my 3 year old had his way tonight! First trip out this weekend i hope.
I would have done last night if it wasn’t for a convalescing dog. I’m hopeful this weekend, on the driveway.
