De Wildt - Two Patrols and a Navara (2017/05/21)

Postby trowalts » 21 May 2017 19:29

So this Sunday we headed through to De Wildt, my first 4x4 experience (the white patrol) and also the Navara. Luckily we had Iandvl there to show us the ropes. We took the easier route (going left), seems the Navara was a bit shy in the photo below. :rolling:

Starting off my first thought was, this 4x4 thing is not to difficult. This is actually really fun and then we walked through this first real ascent, with big ruts and I'm not going to lie, I was concerned. Coming from a Mazda 3, and the safety of smooth tar, this war torn hilltop seemed a nightmare. I watched Ian drive through it like it was nothing, I took a deep breath and placed my truck into first. What followed was me realising, for the first time what an amazing truck the Patrol is.

Hey Tinus, jy kan dit maak op hierdie site:
