Going faster on 4-wheel drive only means it is harder to stop in the ice and snow!!

This is so true, yet here in upstate NY, it seems that many owners of 4-wheel-drive vehicles never learn this. I see them often going by on the highway 15mph faster than we are.
The other thing to go along with this, that my uncle taught me many years ago(when I was gushing over his new truck), was that 4-wheel-drive meant that when you got stuck, you would be farther away from home.
I can attest to that, Four wheel drive is capable of getting you stuck better/ worse.
I do not have to go looking for place to go four wheeling. I use my vehicles as tools not play things. If I need to drive on the beach I will drive out there, if I need to get out in a field to collect wood or haul something I go four wheeling, My work truck has 200,000 plus miles on original clutch, It has hauled water 200 gallons of water to fight wildland fires, It has collected coal on the beach etc. but I don't go four wheeling for the sake of making a mess.
I can agree with you there...I don't understand myself the sport of driving a muck in the countryside but on the flip-side those types of folk probably can't understand why I would spend hours on end looking at a computer monitor...

To each their own

I could do with a little chill here in sunny cairns. Oh that's right, I do! It's called an airconditioner

P.S. Sorry the quality, I'm not a very good photographer.

A new definition of a "frosty mug" for me!

Night time photos, awesome.

I think over here the majority of people who have them think it more a status symbol rather than actually having them to work, I mean honestly most of them wouldn't know what a field or country track looked like never mind how to drive on one

In the US our "manly" role model is the character "Tim the Tool Man, Taylor." There is just something about strapping on 300 or 400 horse power attached to four 4 foot tall tires and challenging the intelligence and determination of dirt, water, and rock. "Aaarough, aaarough, aaarough!!"



Ya think?!
