4WD adventures in our 80 series Landcruiser

We’ve had our 80 series Landcruiser for a couple of years now, and have done a lot of work to it. In return, we’ve had some truly amazing trips with it, and created memories that money can’t buy. Below are some of the places we’ve been in our 4WD. Where have you been? Where’s your next trip?
