Jellyfish are new phenomena of the last 3 decades since 1970's they are not endemic specie to Mediterranean sea Rhopilema nomadica, the nomad jellyfish

I think the full floater was a good move. Bumpers look good. Is israel friendly to off roading?
yes Israel is very friendly to off roading but you need extra motor cooling and very good AC its manly desert trails.

my old rig "John the Baptist" solo trip to the lowest point on earth.

The avatar of after a name of a song of "Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark" not connected to politics. What's the problem with that?
