OFF THE ROAD
It’s seriously about time I got my own car; road trips, drifting (definitely not my scene though) and something that is becoming increasingly popular: off-roading.
Although at first, the mention of it sounded a bit dull, I never expected it to be such a laugh. This would also be a good place to note that I was not paid by Land Rover to promote them. I really wish I was; I could definitely use the cash.
It’s not necessarily the thrill of driving a Discovery through the odd terrain that makes it such an appealing idea. It’s more the people you go with, laughing at the people in the back seat flying all over the place as you go down a ditch.
Everyone chips in for fuel, you grab some snacks and drinks which will also end up everywhere by the time you’re heading home. It’s a different experience and gives you something to do on rainy days (the best).
As long as you don’t get stuck, it’s fun to just muck around. I’ve also found that being on top of a Land Rover makes a great Instagram shot. Thinking back to the teenager sleepover photoshoots, we just had to have our own input.
People don’t buy cars these days to keep the resale value, let that motherf***er live a little. The problem we’re having recently is the complaint of 4x4s on byways. More and more are being blocked so trucks can’t get through which just ruins the fun for all of us. Have fun whilst we still can and screw the old people who go for countryside walks.
