In May of 1999 a dozen Land Rover's from New England made their way to Ontario Canada for a weekend of off road adventure. The goal was a tough ten mile long trail through mud & remote swamp land that was further complicated by unseasonably warm weather and an epic Canadian mosquito season.
Offroad participants included members of the West Connecticut Rover Club, the Toronto Area Rover Club & the Ottawa Valley Lard Rover Club.
Conditions were so difficult that we were forced to turn around within sight of the exit to the trail. We completed nearly 9 of the total 10 mile off road crossing.
