Back in 2015, I made the impulsive decision to travel to England for a day to visit Banksy’s Dismaland art exhibit (for a future post…), but my entry was timed, so I opted for an evening visit. This meant I had time to kill prior to heading out to Weston Super-Mare and the Tropicana to be bemused. Fortunately, a little giant thing was on the way: The Making of Harry Potter at the Warner Brothers Studios in Leavesden.

This post is the first in a series that I’ll roll out over time related to my trip to Japan in 2013. I opted to start with The Mysterious Island, one of several lands that make up the gobsmackingly amazing theme park that is Tokyo DisneySea. Mysterious Island gets first billing as it is centered around a topic near and dear to my heart: the classic Disney movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Not too long ago, I decided to visit Italy, and being a car nut, I had to stop at as many car museums as I possibly could which, with national holidays I had not foreseen, meant only one: The Ferrari Museum (aka La Museo Ferrari). What I also had not foreseen, was that the factory museum for one of the most famous and storied marques in the history of motorsport, would have a series of rotting and vandalized fiberglass body shells displayed out in front.
“Classy…” said no one ever.

You know how there are things nearby you that you never do because they’re nearby you and so you figure you can do them any time but then one day you’re on your deathbed and realized you never did those things, well, for me that was San Diego Comic-Con, almost.

The RoverLog will be the central repository of all relevant data I can think of with regards to maintaining, servicing, and repairing the 2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport L320 I bought in 2018 with 126,000 miles on the odometer. I hope this log serves to entertain, inform and educate on just what a high mileage vehicle like this needs to stay running. I fully recognize that this Rover is going to need work. It’s no spring chicken, but I love it. This is an objective log of the TLC it will get from here on out. For further info, an explanation of the spreadsheet is included in the spreadsheet as well.
