Insurance is pretty boring. If any insurance salesmen are reading this I’m really sorry, but it is; it’s just dull. Off road driving is exciting. Choosing and fitting new accessories for your vehicle is fun. Discussing 4wd insurance is boring. Unfortunately there’s one thing that’s muchworse than discussing insurance. That’s not being able to get off road and enjoy yourself, because you’ve had an accident in your rig, and now you can’t afford to fix it because you didn’t have the right insurance and they refuse to pay out.

Any switched-on off road driver will make sure their vehicle is in perfect running order before setting off on a trip, then check it when they get back to see if anything’s getting ready to fail. What a lot of people don’t do is carry out checks while they’re actually on the trip. That’s a bit unfortunate, because taking five minutes to check over your engine will nip a lot of problems in the bud.

So you’ve checked your vehicle, loaded all your camping gear and you’re ready to head for the bush. Before you get started, though, have a last check on your box of tools and spares. Do you really have everything you need to keep yourself mobile in rough country?
The chances are you have all the right spanners, wrenches and screwdrivers for your wagon and its accessories, and most of the time that’s going to be enough to do the job.
