Thank you to my sister, @kolson20, for making this crazy fun weekend possible because she won a weekend rental from @bishoprookco in a raffle and so generously gifted it to me and @silsetham!
More about @bishoprookco:
“What started as a passion project, focused on the love of adventure travel and the pursuit of a perfect overland vehicle has turned into a life-changing journey for me. By starting Bishop+Rook I have been exposed to so many great people and have made friends around the world who share a love for the Defender lifestyle. We are all part of a unique and growing community of like-minded folks who enjoy a simpler form life – including boxy, but rugged, vehicles.
While Bishop+Rook was originally created as an outlet to document the Land Rover Defender culture on film, it soon morphed into a way to help others scour the globe in search of unique projects to become their dream vehicle.
We are a small, but dedicated team of Land Rover enthusiasts with a passion for finding, importing, and restoring these iconic British Defenders to the United States. We hand select only the best Defenders to match the requirements of our clients. We take the stress and risk out of the import process – allowing our clients to focus on the adventures ahead instead of the pitfalls and potential unforeseen expenses if things should go wrong.
We offer a variety of options for people looking to become a caretaker of a vintage Land Rover Defender. From fresh from the British countryside working trucks to bespoke restorations and builds. Every Defender we place up for adoption is ready for adventure on the first day, with a life of every day exploring in mind.
I am fortunate to have been able to follow my passion – helping guide people through the process -helping people welcome the perfect Defender into their family. We welcome you to the beginning of a great adventure.”
