Wolf with A.S.B.O. in sheep's clothing...
I've not done 4WD overland; only bikes but, in Argentina, we parked up the bike for a few days and did some back-packing for a change. We got a lift from a crazy Chilean with one arm in a sling, on the Ruta 40 (very very unpaved), driving a raised Delica with demented lunar-lander type tyres and he was getting air at 100km off the cattle grids.
I think its got potential!!!
Adventure: it's an experience, not a style!
(so ride what you like, but ride it somewhere new!)
