Subaru 1600 4WD
I had planned a trip to the Arctic circle on my Kawasaki
Turbo for mid-1993, shortly before I was due to return to Australia.
The Bear Head had intended to pick up a bike and be in on it too. However, at the
last minute we bought a Subaru 4WD for the trip instead. Wilding said
it looked like its should be called Neville, and the name stuck.
first took me and Karen from Texas to Rhode Island. He then returned
me to Texas where the Bear Head and I spent a lot of time performing
mechanical repairs and belatedly departing on our huge adventure.
travelled all through the North-Western US and Canada, a journey of
too many dimensions and perils to describe here. Nev was packed to the
gunwalesvery slow going up the mountains and too fast coming down.
We never quite made it to Alaska, but had more than our fill of travelling,
troubles, camping, rain, and breathtaking beauty.
