So now with the decision made to go out west to my sister and her hubby's 20,000 acre cattle property, I had to equip myself with a vehicle that would go the long haul… plus the property is a little difficult to get into… no bitumen road once inside the property gate… and my Mazda 6 wasn't going to cut it… in actual fact it would have got ruined.
So I bought myself a 4×4, a Nissan Patrol… never owned a four wheel drive before. I was so excited to be able to get a really nice looking, all I need to go bush vehicle for a great price… For all the adventures that lay ahead of me, and my 2 daughters. Not sure if I'm ready to really go up against this beast in the bush, but it will get me where I need to go.
So I was wondering where would be the best place to go for advise on driving a 4×4… it's not like I can't drive it, I mean I drove 250 ton dump trucks in the coal mines, so this should be simple… right?
So if you have any advise, I would really appreciate it, if you could leave a comment with your advise or experience with driving them… I would greatly appreciate it.
I suppose my biggest concern would be changing a tyre, as I don't even know how to change one on my Mazda… hehehe… RACQ were always my rescuers… I would like to know a little more now though. the vehicle has a CB radio, so at least I have contact with the truckies, if anything does go wrong…
Well, the countdown is on now. The time will fly. I am selling all my furniture also… a really fresh start.
I look forward to reading your comments and sharing with you all more of my journey forward.
