Re: It's a good joke, but.....
Visited the 'Empty Quarter' of Saudi in 2002. Three vehicles. Toyota Land Cruiser with all the goodies and two ex Army Landies with winches. These were needed because while the LC was nice and cool with its A/C it kept getting bogged down in places that it shouldn't have.
The landies with their 4WD-Low ratio gearbox came in very useful getting the Land Cruiser going again.
Next time we went we were all in Landies.
