So I signed up for a 4x4 drive at one of the wine farms during the Roberton slow wine festival this weekend. Expected a peaceful cruise between the vines, but ended up tackling the most extreme challenges I've ever been faced with.

Unfortunately there weren't too many pictures taken but I did manage to get my hands on some of the very 1st obstacle.... A 35 degree, diagonal descent on loose rocks that helped gravity along nicely. The biggest part of the challenge was trying to keep the nose pointed down and the back from sliding out.

Only 5 of us out of the 15+ vehicles drove this one :cool:
The trail is a more of a hobby to the winemaker at this point and is still very much work in progress, but its gonna be great once its done. :dance1:
