A Check List for 4x4 Enthusiasts
The excitement in planning and undertaking a well-deserved 4x4 holiday, far away from the everyday rat race, can only rate as a highlight on any 4x4 enthusiast's calendar. The success or failure of your trip may be influenced by many factors. Nobody can predict the unforeseen, although you do have control over the majority of influencing factors.
Many hours will be allocated to the planning of your route, servicing of your vehicle and checking your camping equipment, with very little time spent on planning your packing for the trip. This seemingly unimportant point may have a major influence on the success of your trip.
