Wanted to say a massive thanks to Paul for an absolutely fantastic 4WD weekend.

My husband and I purchased a Nissan Patrol last year, and have been slowly setting it up so we can have some off road adventures.

We are about 3/4 of the way through setting up our "tough truck" and thought we should do a weekend getaway to test out our new tyres and suspension. As my hubby and I want to do some major touring, he thought it would be a good idea for me to improve on my very limited off road skills and that a guided weekend tour is just the thing!

After looking around at various options we decided to go with Beyond the Blacktop 4WD tours.

We met up with our very friendly guides and other eager off roaders at Sunny Corner bright and early and after a safety chat, radio check and release of tyre pressure we where off on our way.

My husband who has quite a bit of experience 4WD, was patiently sitting in the passenger seat as we headed off to start our weekend adventure. (Personally I wasn’t sharing in the confidence he had placed in my ability to tackle whatever lay ahead!)

As our convey made our way down the first portion of the track, it wasn’t long before we had to tackle our first obstacle. With encouraging words on the UHF and from hubby my confidence grew.

By the end of the day, I had tackled ruts, washouts, bog puddles, river crossing, rock steps, steep inclines and declines and had the biggest smile on my face!

We stopped at some amazing places to take photo’s, admire the wildlife and to take note of the history of the land around us.

To finish off an amazing day we arrived at the Capertee Royal Hotel, to be met by very friendly staff and locals, after an amazing dinner and some well deserved beverages with great new friends, it was time to hit the hay – to do it all again the next day!

I was amazed at what I was able to achieve, with guidance from Paul and our Patrol performed beyond our expectations

We will definitely be booking another tour and can’t wait for what you have install for us next time – only problem is it will be my husband’s turn to drive!

Thanks again

Sunny Corner Weekender from Donna and Tony
