2023 SOT Heroes

Driving all the way, all the days is a mighty achievement. You and your car need to stand for the pressure. You can drive smart, don’t get too carried away with the driving, and by that avoid unscheduled repair and maintenance out in the trails.

The side of the tour that not too many think much about is that you are away for 17 days and moving camp every night. If you live in your car, have a roof tent, caravan or camper it’s still limited space and lots of things with you. Packing up, make dinner, sleep and repeat 17 times. It takes some planning before you leave, and then you will inevitably still learn and finetune it as you go.

This is a journey where you meet friends for life. The community between like minded, forged by getting through (impossible?) obstacles in the trails, getting lost, finding your way, chatting on the CB radio between the locations, and then cooking and eating a late meal together while sharing stories.

Our 2023 heroes are:

🇩🇰 Rikke – Toyota Land Cruiser VX 100

🇩🇰 Brian – Toyota Land Cruiser VX 80

🇸🇪 Max – Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

🇸🇪 Frida & Alva – Nissan Patrol Y60/Landrover Defender 130

Well done guys, really well done! 👏 And an extra round of applause for Max who made it all the days the second time. And for Alva who (what we know) is the first who made it all the days three years in a row! 👏👏

And for all of the rest of the 260+ registered this year, thank you for being a part of making this year such a great one! 💛 I really hope to see all of you again!

All the best from your 2023 Tourleader team: Frida Ericsson & Peter Larsson
