Real team building stuff for the lads of Vetrun180. They had no idea just how good there Land rovers were until they tackles Sao Goncalo Hill in Northern Portugal.
Interesting comparison of 2 Discovery 2's on the same hill in Devon. Same vehicles, neither has Centre Diff lock fitted just TC, ones on AT tyres, one on Mud tyres, one on standard suspension, one on a 4 inch lift, and different drivers....
And just to show how good the Discovery's are, then here is a fairly standard Defender 90 on the same section...
Great trip in North Devon on a partial new route. As usually tight and scratchy in places but that's part of what makes Devon fum. Very dry in any places, despite what you might see in the photos. A bit more water in the rivers would have made the many ford crossings a bit more interesting. Also the second day needs a but more finessing. A bit to much tarmac between some of the lanes - oh well - another excuse for a recce!!!
Action from last weekends Mid Wales trip including Strata Florida and Brechfa Forest. Possibly not my best work, but I filled the good camera full of dust in Morocco and its of to the repair shop. Good job it was insured!!!. This was shot on the phone.

The best fun you can have in a 4x4 - with your boots on - Dune driving at Erg Chebbi - Morocco
4 Day green laning trip across the Lake District, Yorkshire ales and Yorkshire Moors
Awesome crossing of the Tavy Tidal Ford after a night of heavy rain. What the video does not show was we were watching Salmon trying to leap up the wear while waiting for the last vehicles to cross. This was a first for me. Never seen anything like it in the UK before. Made the appearance of a Kingfisher seem like an ordinary everyday occurrence.
It really goes to show that is not all about the off road action. While we like to find good off-roading our Adventure Tours really get you out into place you would have no reason to go otherwise and we get to see some amazing site and visit some very undiscovered places.
