    As per Automonkey's suggestion, I've started this thread to simplify the process of finding the more in depth reports on member's OSD experiences.

    To add, it'd be great if we could start a comprehensive resource section on member experiences. So for those of you who've done OSD and have either in the past or would like to now, create a report for the resource section, please send it to me (webmaster@v70xc.com) in MS Word format with photos embedded within the report. From there I'll convert to HTML, clean the code and upload to the appropriate section.

    Cheers!

    And to get us started in no particular order, sorry if I missed anyone, I didn't get a chance to check out every thread.

    Thanks Taylor.  I'll start reading tomorrow afternoon when I get home from overnight call delivering tiny little scrappers.

    Thanks Taylor, these are very helpful.  I'll add our story and some picts when we return.  We leave Saturday, pick up on 9/29 and hit the road for 10 days from there.  Looking forward to the trip and our new Ruby XC70.  Seabee

    greetings all!!!!

    thanks for including us in the listing (richardblaine @ virtualtourist.com).  unfortunately, i will be updating my virtualtourist site soon and will be deleting lots of the osd story.  my wife and i are on the dvd from the volvo na osd office, and i think it does a great job of telling the osd story.  thanks for all the wonderful comments and feedback over the past year.

    good luck to all future osd'ers!  please feel free to email/message me if i can be of further help.

    ps - the 2002 osd story is being replaced by the 2003 story of our hiking of hadrian's wall in october

    thanks again

    Hi Taylor,

    Glad to see OSD topic and your help to post reports with images. I plan to send you summaries of our 2001 V70XC and 2004 S60AWD trips once I&#39;ve read the work of other members. I just registered today, so I want to find my way around the site a bit more as well.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Welcome Tom&#33;

    Here&#39;s another phenomenal OSD report dating back to Oct &#39;03. Anyone care to step up and take credit for this great piece of work?

    ah thanks for noticing that stark.. we converted the forums a few weeks ago and those links are pointing back to the old server software, which is as you mentioned, dead.


    I'll try to get them all fixed up soon but in the meantime, take a look through this forum's archive, all the same content is here.
