PaulP38A.com is a bit of fun for me and hopefully of some use to other Range Rover owners.
I’ve got this crazy notion that maybe someday I’ll be able to turn my passion/hobby in to something that lets me live in the manner that I am accustomed to (or would like to be). Not just yet, but maybe someday…
Is this a Commercial Venture?
There is no commercial agenda for this site (see Update 1 below) and I won’t ask you for a donation. Maybe one day I’ll consider putting some Google ads on here to help cover costs but that is a low priority.
Update 1: as of February 2010, I am a co-owner of Hard Range Australia so I am declaring interest now. This site is still for my personal projects, and Hard Range is a hobby business that lets me get cheap parts for my own Land Rovers and help out other Land Rover and Range Rover enthusiasts.
Update 2: as of March 2013, I am closing down Hard Range Australia so I am back to being an enthusiast again. It was fun doing the Hard Range thing for 3 years. I met a lot of great people and learned heaps about my cars. However, I also learned that I am better off sticking with my day job to pay the bills, and that a hobby business like Hard Range is too difficult to run in Australia as a 1 or 2 man band if you want to do the right thing in terms of tax and company reporting obligations.
If you decide to join the site (if I open it up for membership) or make a post, I won’t sell your personal information and email address to spammers nor will I use it for any purposes other than in the maintenance of this site.
