  • 2017 LAND ROVER DISCOVERY REVIEW

    The Land Rover Discovery was one of the first 4×4 vehicles I appreciated as a child. My father worked for “New Rowley Motors” at Artarmon, NSW in the spare parts department. They sold Jags and Land Rovers so occasionally he’d score one for the weekend. At the time, it...
  • BlackWolf Turbo X-Lite LF 240

    I’m happy to declare the fact I own a BlackWolf tent, it’s called the “Tuff Dome” and let me tell you I paid big coin for it. But after it survived an East Coast Low that struck the NSW Central Coast a year or so back I’m convinced they’re...
  • Meat – There’s An App For That.

    In and around my home I currently have 36 devices ranging from cameras, sensors and lights that use Wi-Fi to keep me up to date with what’s happening. In fact, in the so-called “Internet of Things” I’ve gone all out. Now even the humble BBQ can’t escape the emerging...
  • Nissan Pathfinder Ti Long Term Report Part Two

    EFTM, in case you don’t know is an acronym that stands for “Every Thing For The Man”. Hence the copious amount of gear we talk about that’s aimed at blokes. One product that’s not is cars, especially SUVs. In fact, just today I looked around at the number of...
  • Time for Some Duffel Action

    Osprey is a company that does bags well, we’ve covered camping bags, backpacks and even baby carriers. Quite frankly I’m surprised it doesn’t do bum bags. Now Osprey have announced a new version of the Duffel bag, the “Transporter” duffel series is here and there’s a size and colour...
  • Folding Ladder for your next 4X4 Adventure from Aussie Rhino-Rack

    Don’t mess with an adventurer, 4WD loaded past the roof with gear to survive for months without having to visit a large store in some random country town. But when things are loaded high, it also makes them hard to get to.  Rhino-Rack have you covered with a new...

  • If You Can’t Beat Them, Hire Them – Rent a 4WD from Bear Rentals

    How’s this for an idea. Are you a wannabe 4×4 outdoor type but don’t have the bank account or the time to invest in a fully set-up vehicle? Trust me, after hosting a radio program for several years on this topic I get just how much the spend can...
  • Ford Everest Review

    The Ford Everest is a menacing beast to look at, it sits tall, has a large front grill and is loaded with a high torque diesel engine. On the inside though the Everest has the comforts of a sedan and is an easy machine to drive. We spent a week...
  • The Updated 2017 Nissan X-Trail

    Apollo Bay in Southwestern Victoria along the Great Ocean Road is a one of the country’s great locations. Combined with the Otway National Park mountains as a backdrop then you really do have one of those must visit locations on hand. Chris Bowen recently found himself piloting the not...
  • Toyota Landcruiser 200 GXL Review: the most capable off-road vehicle for Australian conditions

    The Toyota Landcruiser has long been the go to vehicle for those looking to tow, go off-road or simply have a chunk of metal bigger than anyone else in the burbs. Its latest update brings a new, almost American front end, but in general more of the same. Chris...
  • The Forgotten Benefit of the 4WD

    The popularity of the SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) has grown dramatically over recent years. Now an SUV comes in a range of sizes from “jacked up hatchback” to “portable house”. An SUV has many benefits for families with a ride height for simple loading of small children, prams and...
  • The Nissan Patrol Y61 Legend Edition Review – is it legendary?

    To be honest it’s getting harder to really unload on any vehicle these days. Most new cars offer increasingly impressive levels of technology, some offer wildly futuristic designs, others amazing performance and fuel economy from small engines that in the past would be laughed at. As far as interior...
  • Seven-seat off-road wagon: Toyota Fortuner GXL review

    There’s an ample amount of seven-seat off-road wagons on the market that trace their ancestry back to ute-style workhorse vehicles. The Ford Everest, Mitsubishi Sport Pajero and Holden Trailblazer come to mind. But how does replacing the rear tray with a roof and seats work out for Toyota? The...
