A decent weekend four wheel drive trip in New Zealand, exploring the Makaroro River in the Ruahine Ranges. I took my basically standard Range Rover (my only car at the time, hence the often-worried commentary). There were also two Land Rover "90s" - neither remotely standard - an oldish Land Cruiser and a Nissan Patrol.

It was a toughish trip with huge rocks and some quite deep water which covered my bonnet five times, though you won't see that as I was filming while driving and had to concentrate. Overall, though, a fairly typical New Zealand four wheel drive excursion.

Oddly, maybe because I was so cautious, mine was the only car which didn't break or need a tow. Testament to the original design as well!

Sorry about the wordy commentary.
