The editor, Tony Pritchard, has been involved with 4x4s since 1966, often using Series One Land Rovers for farm work and ‘exploring’ – which we now call greenlaning!
He conceived and edited ’4X4 & Off Road Mart’ magazine, produced by Aceville in Colchester, before launching ’4×4 Enthusiast’ which was sold to Traplet Publishing, who sold it on to Waterways World (publishers of Total Off Road) who killed it stone dead. Thanks, guys!
Tony then went on to edit World Off Road, before launching Overland Travel, which was developed from his Expedition Society website.
He has driven many types of 4x4s, courtesy of the manufacturers and owned, Nivas, Series 1, 2 (SWB & LWB) and 3 (SWB & LWB Safari), 110, Range Rovers (V8, 200Tdi, V8/LPG), Suzukis, modified Toyota Surf and currently is restoring two Land Rover Discovery 300Tdi. (one expedition prepared).
