    Toyota Land Cruiser 12,000 Mile School Run

    12,000 miles just to get to school, that’s what Ed Durgan and his father Graham are hoping to accomplish in their Toyota Land Cruiser. Travelling from Littlewick Green in Berkshire to McGill University, Montreal in Canada where Ed will begin studying political sciences.

    Ed, Graham and the Land Cruiser will travel over 12,000 miles across 3 continents in order to get to Canada. They will begin by heading across northern Europe and Scandinavia, then onwards into Russia crossing Mongolia and china before they reach the coast to catch a ferry to America where they will complete the final part of the journey.

    Edward said, “Neither Dad or I know how to fix a car, so if we break down in the Gobi desert then I guess we’ll just sit down, have a cup of tea and hope a nice Mongolian can help us out.

    “I decided to go with Dad because if I went with a friend then there’d be a high chance we’d fall out and possibly never speak to each other again – that can’t really happen with Dad.”

    With this in mind the vehicle of choice had to be the Toyota Land Cruiser, which is widely considered one of the world’s best off road vehicles and is renowned for its reliability.

    The latest edition of the Toyota land cruiser (the 3.0) is available at Howards as well as the larger V8 edition. The Land cruiser comes with plenty of handy tools and gadgets for the outdoors. These clever feature include Crawl Control, Hill Start Assist and Downhill Assist, it also uses Multi Terrain Select, were you can pick from set driving modes in order to suit your terrain.

    So if you’re looking to get your hands on one of these fantastic off road machines, or any other Toyota vehicles then Howard’s Motor Group is the perfect place, providing the latest models of Toyota Land Cruiser as well as used vehicles.You can follow Ed and Grahams Adventure at www.thelongestschoolrun.com  as well as help them raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
