Volunteers putting a Land River through its paces.

Wicked and wild, it's a nature blog

Week 18 and we continued our work in Road Wood but on Wednesday the volunteers were off to Torrington for more training, we were getting behind the wheel of the National Trust Landrover and getting our 4X4 off road driving certificate. It was two days of driving over deep gullies, getting ourselves out of sticky situations and manoeuvring around tight corners and down steep slopes. It was a very fun course if a little nerve racking at times. Landrovers take a lot of getting used to and some bad habits picked up from driving cars can be potentially catastrophic in a Landrover, one that I was told off for was having my foot on the clutch when going around a steep corner. If the clutch is down that is the first step to losing control.
