Hi guys been off the offroading scene due to a little pink foot, just need some advice from what age did you guys start taking your little ones out with you, no hectic grade 5 stuff but maybe 2/3 grade or really deep sand tracks to get to those secret West Coast surf spots

Shes quite strong but only 14 months now, dont know if its too soon being a first time dad and all

our godson was 6 months old when he did his first trip from Cape to the very North of Namibia.


actually at that age they handle it better than when they are a few years old ... and get restless sitting too long.


they ENJOY the camps much more than we do. and be warned ! After the first trip she will be nagging you for the next one. :)

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
