4×4 off-road experience – great, but forget the adrenalin

My nearest and dearest treated me to a 4×4 off-road experience for Christmas. …There was me expecting to be careering around at 50 mph – a real boys with toys adrenalin experience!

In the event it was all done at 1 mph (I kid you not) and my foot only touched the accelerator four times in two hours.

That said, it was a hugely educational and rewarding experience, greatly enhanced by listening to the instructor, who has lived and breathed 4x4s for over thirty years. Very interesting. …And driving them is a bit of an counter-intuitive thing….
