Milo – In The Beginning
Finally! Yep, it’s the first ever fair dinkum Milo book and I’ve poured my heart and soul into doing it right for the little green 40 Series Toyota. Milo’s become a legend in Australia and overseas over the last twenty years trotting up some huge miles under some of the worst off-road conditions on earth. After getting me home from trips across the desert or through the snow for decades I can finally tell you how much Milo means to me. Now I’ve reached this stage of my career it’s time to let the world know the true story of Milo from behind the scenes.
‘Roothy’s Milo, In the Beginning’ is more than just the inside story on Milo, it comes with the thoughts on building her originally, family shots you’ve never seen, the building process itself and the tricks learnt along the way.
Some of this is specific to old Toyotas but most is relevant to any off-road truck. You’ll find out what broke, trackside fixes, what works and what didn’t, what’s her future and there’s even a chapter on what it’s really like driving Milo. For anyone who’s into serious four wheel driving, building or maintaining their own trucks or just the sheer joys of owning a machine long term, there are tips and techniques buried in these pages that you’ll never read anywhere else. I know I’ll be copping plenty of flack over some of the ideas put forward on these pages but in the final reckoning, a bloke’s got to write what he believes.
DVD – Darwin Unplugged, The Handbrakes Holiday
Talk about mixing work and pleasure.the Handbrake got the invite to Mark and Shay’s wedding and next thing I know we’re off in Milo to Darwin! For the first time ever you guys get to see exactly how mad Roothy’s life on the road can be. Add in the Handbrake’s refusal to travel any way except in the little green truck – a monument to comfort if ever there was one – and you’ve got what I reckon is the most entertaining couple of DVDs we’ve ever done.
Two? Yep, once we got to Darwin the local mob wanted to take us bush to show off their country. How could we say no, even with the Wet season still hanging around like a giant wet spot? Talk about insane fun and games and unlike previous shows where the advertisers who paid the bills ruled, these DVDs show Aussie off-roaders the way we are – Penny punting the family 80, Dan taking his daughter Paige for the ‘play in the mud’ she loves, Chiz pulling some monumental efforts in a pretty basic Triton proving what knowledge of country and understanding your truck can do in the real world and Ben in the mighty GQ he and Mark built with a six inch lift.
Yep there’s nothing ‘usual’ about these DVDs. Even the music’s fair dinkum, thanks to eMDee’s (that’s Mark who’ll you’ll see getting married!) didgeridoo and my old mates ‘The Giants’, one of Australia’s longest serving touring rock and roll bands.
Strap yourself in and come along for the ride! Like the Handbrake says, this might be the most honest trip you’ll ever see. Me? I reckon you’ll love it!
