Hi Guys, I don't know if anybody is following the adventures of Mike van Ginkel in his Rolls, on his trip from Capetown to London. http://www.silversprit.co.za. His support vechicle is a Lux (what else).In his latest report they were following a guide through the desert in Egypt when the Gyppo decided to take a short cut, and ended up deep in the sand. Unfortunately the Rolls followed the guide and also fell into the sand trap. No problem the Lux lowered his tyre pressure to .8 bar engaged the diff lock and pulled the Rolls, all two and a half tons of it, out of the sand. They felt sorry for the guide and pulled him out as well. Do I hear someone say "so what"
