My Mrs doesnt like driving full stop. she is much happier in the passenger seat, though i suspect she secretly likes the 4x4 driving on the odd occasion i convince her to get behind the wheel off road...
My wife isn't into 4x4ing much at all but has had a go at driving, did a river crossing and some up hill driving but nothing too serious, I strongly believe they should learn and do some in case something were to happen to you, snakebite, heart attack, or just plain out of it and you required a Doctor, how else are you gunna get there.
Totaly agree with Grumpy, BUT my Mrs dos'nt see the point of doin something if I can do it, cos I dont do much she recons ha! Any way I would have much stress handin over the weel of the 4by off road,she would have to drive some one elses, any one up for it ??????
My wife did SOME off road driving in the Simpson & Kimberlys until 2003 when we were heading accross the Plenty / Donahue. I had a very bad case of Hayfever & asked her to drive.
Despite pleading she drove TOO FAST INTO BULL DUST & LOST IT! (I was looking down the road OUT OF THE SIDE WINDOW!) - SHE DID NOTHING!!!! - I grabbed the wheel & turned it into the skid, but she managed to pull the wheel BACK to centre (Fortunately slowing all the time) - We SHOT OFF THE SIDE into small scrub & came to a halt, AND SHE SAID "THAT WOULD HAVE FIXED YOUR HAYFEVER!!!!"
She has not driven ANY VEHICLE SINCE!!!! (Thank goodness!)
I believe that more females should give it a go out on the tracks, I love it & the looks I get is priceless!! I DON'T like Croozer's driving plus I'm a bad passenger. My boys love it when mum goes 4wd'in.
the ball and chain don't at all if it an't on the black stuff then she not coming let alone drive down some track in low 4x4 with mud upto the doors , she drives her kerando any where solong as it's on the black stuff and camping is done at a park with hot and cold showers and flushing toilet
