    Question Wife Training

    I want to teach my wife the basic 4x4 skills and technique this weekend.

    Anybody with suggestions which track will be best? I was thinking The Wedge (close by) but would prefer somewhere with at least some degree of fauna and flora.

    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    Haha I have to admit the wife training thing also got me. Groenkloof gets my vote as well, it's not difficult and a nice ride, when she gets more comfortable then DeWilt etc

    I took my girlfriend to The Wedge about 2 months ago to show her the ropes with my Jeep and she enjoyed it a lot.

    Just a word of caution, there's one obstacle that's pretty much just a pit full of tyres. Don't go in there. We drove in, and the problem comes when you drive over the tyres, they start flipping up on their sides and they wedge themselves underneath the vehicle (maybe this is where the name comes from). Those damn things almost ripped my rear bumper off!

    The pit removes all Tupperware from what I've seen!

    pay someone to train her. Its just not worth it do it yourself.
    what ever she does is going to be wrong and any way you try and correct her, you ARE going to be shouting at her.

    Groenkloof - It's a nice drive and not too intimidating for SWAMBO to learn.

    To be honest I was hoping she would drive the whole rear bumper off - that way I could get a property steel bumper, without having to explain why

    Haha, point taken. Maybe for the more serious stuff, but not going pay someone to show her how to deflate tires and select 4L.

    I did stuff with Swambo at Mabalingwe, nice easy stuff ................ for me.

    After her first Mountain (read really small hill) she said she needed a moment to calm down.

    What looks easy to us may be difficult for some one else. Be patient, take your time and do what I did.

    Get out of the car.
