Welcome to Going Global

5 years of planning, waiting, building, rebuilding, testing, repairing and more waiting have gone past and in spite of Covid-19 and everything else we are embarking on our adventure.

Undoubtedly we’re going to see a lot more of our homeland initially than we thought, but that’s not such a bad thing. We will post photos regularly, write-ups occasionally. 

cheers, Pamela and David

Our Land Rover Defender, Fitz has undergone a lot of changes over the past couple of months, culminating in the subframe for the camper fully test bolted together and ready to ship off to Ebco Metal Finishing in Langley for a dip in their galvanizing tank.the challenge when galvanizing is everything must be 100% ready as it all goes at once. So smaller projects usually end up just being painted, but galvanizing rust proofs it for virtually forever. Seems like I’ve been working on this stage forever too, but I’m going to shift gears next week and work on loose ends of the cab and preparations to mount the camper. Talking to @totalcomposites today, it’s going to be coming together soon. Can’t wait! ...

I didn’t know I was going to get marked on this project! My old grade 9 metalwork teacher, Cal Brandt, dropped by to see my dad who he’s pals with. We were both surprised to see each other and catch up. Cal’s teaching and guidance back in middle school went a long ways towards my choices of career path and although I only do metalwork and mechanics as a hobby, I’m grateful for the time spent in his class! ...

Can you spot the difference?? ...
