News February 2017              (Miri/Malaysia, 2/28/2017)

check now and then also our information site → "what's happening?"

Website statistics:   'Webalizer' has been shut down in February 2013. 'Logaholic' became 2016 too unreliable.
                                  Thus 'Google-Analytics' remains as the only reliable counter for us.
                        'Google-Analytics' showed 17'751 pageviews during February 2017. The visitors came from 235 countries!
                        ('Google-Analytics': January 2017 = 26'124 pageviews / December 2016 = 21'128 pageviews)
                        Record day since 12/17/1998 = the birthday of our website: on 11/5/2007 = 13'407 visitors and 787'456 hits ('Webalizer')
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
There's not much to talk about in the middle of the 3rd rejuvenation of our now 35-years old LandCruiser, except the problems while
sourcing the required spare parts. We search daily at many spare parts dealer all over Miri, hearing sometimes just "no have".
Occasionally it might be possible to find other places through 4x4 clubs. Hence we got a used carburetor from Kuching. Unfortunately
there are other small components that aren't anymore available, particularly from the body in that case they have to be either repaired or
remade. This can be seen particularly regarding the damage of the armed robbery on August 31st, 2015, in Malawi.
 
We are asked often, why we are doing this again. Well, since our 2nd overhaul back in 2012, when our LandCruiser looked again "like
new", it got some "nasty bashings": During the ferry ride from Praia to Tarrafal on Cape Verde on February 28th, 2014, a huge unfixed
wooden case smashed into our left rear side during rough sea and dented it completely. Admittedly the shipping company took over the
costs of the damage (panel beating, etc.), but that work wasn't done really "seriously". The result was that there's now all over rust
popping up and filler paste is chipping off.
On October 15th, 2014, we lost before Calenga in Angola on the eve of our 30 years anniversary on the road our first right hand rear
wheel, followed by the second on January 24th, 2015, in Clanwilliam in South Africa. During both cases, the rear right hand fender was
heavily damaged. However, contrary to Mindelo on Cape Verde, the bodywork in Capetown was done perfectly.
But also Turkmenistan and Tajikistan left later marks in need of repair by its very bad roads, mainly on the pillars that are carrying our
heavy roof load.
 
This was the body work part. Looking at the mechanical part, the repairs are more on the preventive side, i.e. maintenance. Said that we
try to reduce future workshop visits down to the minimum, while replacing all either "vulnerable" or already "injured" parts. Therefore we
hope that we will have some peace during the coming years. We crossed now the threshold of 75 and view our future journey through
life not necessarily just puttering around underneath the car.

We wrote in our last "News – January 2017" that the overhaul will last at least one month. Judging today, we guess that it will take
probably two months, may be even a bit more. Both previous repairs 2006 and 2012 lasted also 9½ weeks. What remains
unchanged is the continuation of our journey, the fourth time to Indonesia. Which country will become our next "new one" we don't
know yet. In any case, the country band on the side of the car will have enough free space for not yet visited nations once the
LandCruiser is repainted, because we feel that 186 are not yet enough!
