Good video! Looks like you've got some pretty nice areas over there. Ever get any snow/ice to drive in?

I live 800km away from where it snows enough to stay on the ground :(
Where I live it has never snowed. About the coldest it gets is 3 or 4 degrees C. This winters minimum was about 7 Celsius. We have lots of sand and dust. And if your lucky, mud.
Cheers,

That's too bad. I like snow driving, but when it's ice, that just sucks. Sand can be a real blast, though. If there are any dunes you could drive on, I'd be mounting some ATV paddles on the soob! :headbang:

Most of the sand dunes you can drive on here are classed "public roads" so you need DOT approved tyres :(
And yes, the cops do come out into the dunes to defect cars and stop nonsense here.
The Kumho 27" M/T's did a great job at 14psi in the sand anyhow. Just gotta keep the load light as we've learned. An extra 100-200kg in the back and its shocking in the soft sand
