The BIG advantage of a four-wheel drive is that when you do get bogged
so are so much further into the swamp than you would have been
otherwise. And as someone pointed out in an earlier message, they are
HEAVIER. (And if they have coil springs for comfort and off road ability
you have to jack them much higher to get the wheels out of the mud -
been there, done that) But we do have room for all the reference books,
cameras, tripods, tlescopes,....... (makes it even heavier).

And I DO belong to LROC Vic and I TREAD LIGHTLY
