There are a multitude of activities that people take up for fun. Surfing, skiing, horse riding, sailing, motocross, biking and many more are all outdoor activities which require a certain level of bodily fitness and health. The important aspect is that they take place out in the fresh air.

Well one activity that requires one to be outside is driving off road. Exhilarating and challenging testing and one is never sure what the land has in store as a following challenge. One minute one can be driving over a good grave load and the next one finds oneself axle deep in clay, Once out of that one finds a river to ford and then a steep sandy bank to climb, then all of a sudden there is a ravine to cross and then another bit of fairly easy terrain... but just as one is starting to relax as this is a piece of cake then one is confronted with a mountain pass which is slippery, stony and requires careful navigation.

Such challenges are not for the faint hearted not the unfit. One may have to let down the air in ones tires for the mud and clay and sand, but pump them up again when comes to a hard surface. Getting punctures is not uncommon nor is having to dig oneself out of trouble. On occasion one might find oneself unwinding the winch to be able to pull the jeep out of a swamp. Cutting down trees in ones route or to provide a firm surface to drive on is quite usual.

But not only must the driver and crew be tough, so must the vehicle and the equipment that ensures that the vehicle comes out fairly unscathed at the desire destination.
