Hummer

By challicew
Being lovers of any 4x4 adventure, my hubby and i did not hestitate to go on this one! It was a route through semi desert conditions which was awesome. The tyres had to be reduced in pressure to about .8 bar (that is really flat but it was the only way to get through some of the very soft sand obstacles!) Having said that, at this particular obstacle this new Hummer, being driven by a young man who was trying out his vehicle's abilities for the first time, was having a battle going up a steep incline. Thought it would be an interesting shot for a saturday morning! Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Tom, it was great fun although a bit nerve wracking a times! 2 of the other vehicles on this run actually popped their tyres!!!
