I loved the 4WD training. My favourites were the hill climbing/descent and trying to bog the car and recover it. You were very patient with us all and went above and beyond to make sure we all had a good time and felt comfortable. I feel much more confident in all aspects of 4WD’ing including water crossings, tyre changing and finding hidden keys!
