Well they found each other. On a way out he got sunk all the way to the frame into sand so our group was digging him out for about hour and half.
His salesman told him: ĎLand Rovers donít get stuck in sandí. He may even told him that they can climb trees like in the Gods Must Be Crazy Movie.

It is morning and we are ready to leave. I was worrying all night since there were about four other cars that were stuck in sand going out or coming in.
