Professional U.K. photographer Toby Savage had spent many years at archeological digs in Libya and had keenly studied the LRDG. His dream was to retrace the areas of the group in period-correct vehicles—something that had never been done since the middle of the war—on the 70th anniversary. It would be simple: Find two jeeps in good shape, gather his pals, ask other people to help split the cost, and go adventuring. Yeah, there was a lot more to it than that, but too much planning can get in the way. Suffice it to say, Toby had the experience and a few desert chums to form a team that could handle the task, much like the LRDG.
