I went to UK, and found this wonderful OFF-ROAD Club, run by Keith and Chris, father and son.
I decided that I wanted to learn a few tricks, which these gentlemen are teaching their country-men.
It was a pleasure to spend some time with Keith.
The Off-Roading Experience was very relaxing: being in the company of an expert, yet it provided ample opportunity to drive the club-owned Land Rover Defender 90.
The Defender sported a body-lift and air-lockers.
But the most important asset of the club, of course, was the Man behind the Machine.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Some important points that we covered in the course were:
Holding the Steering Wheel
Using all One's Senses while driving any OFF-ROADER
The use of Low Range 4 x 4, both uphill, and downhill while leaving the vehicle in idle / tick over
Walking the Track, before jumping!
The use of Reverse gear with Low 4 x 4 for coming back down safely if stalled on an uphill track
A light and scratching type introduction to the air-lockers
And a very enightening general discussion, with some reference to other interesting tracks
