One Life. Live It.
2006 was very well attended
The 2006 London to Brighton Land Rover Run was a very well attended event. Land Rovers filled the Drive right up to Dukes Mound junction. In fact, they could have gone all the way to Black Rock. Instead, the organisers chose to have them parked two and three deep on the pavement, which gave the event a bit of a sardine atmosphere. (Yes, I know, they're off road vehicles!) One of the attractions of these events is the opportunity to move around and look at the mass of vehicles on display, and although the central roadway was free, blocking the pavements with parked cars was not a good idea.
Land Rover enthusiasts have adopted the motto: One Life. Live It. It is an indication of just how much owning a Land River is seen as a lifestyle choice, a way of life, a philosophy of life. Let's face it, the Land Rover is not really at home in our densely packed urban environment.
How many Land Rover owners have really been 'on safari', I don't know, but from the evidence of the Brighton Run they all dream of it.
