Hi All, I know its a while since the last post on this topic but I'm new on here so you'll have to excuse me on that one.
I recently had the pleasure of being a participant on a owners club day out in Wicklow with the Leinster 4x4 club and I really enjoyed it. There was all manner of terrain available to try out and all for the most part non damaging.
We were very well looked after with a lead vehicle and someone at the back to offer encouragement to those with a nervous disposition or pull out the ones who bit off a little more than they could chew.
Although if you and your vehicle were able for it and up for it then there was loads of more challenging sections available and help on hand to get you through.
I have also experienced Munster 4x4 terrain at a more intense level on several occasions and I love it. Its generally worth every penny, if not for the day out but for all you learn about your vehicles limits and some of yours too. They too have lanes suitable for all oh and no matter what kind of a mess you make out of it you don't get left behind.
Have a look at Munster 4x4 website and the gallery section for the extreme bits then go have a look at the "3 Peaks Challenge" in October each year. Most of the money raised over and above whats needed to run the events throughout the year goes to local charities.
Hope the above is of use to someone thinking of giving it a go offroad.
