It’s a toss-up whether you use more electricity at home or in a modern camp. Most camps now come fully supplied with LED lighting, fridges, kitchen appliances and sound systems. You’ll want to keep your phone and maybe a tablet or laptop charged up too. This is no bother when you’re on the move, because your vehicle will provide the power you need, but even if you have a dual battery setup you won’t want to leave it powering your camp for too long.

We’re pretty sure all our readers are smart enough to know how tough the outback can be. Getting out into Australia’s massive landscapes is a lot of fun, but things can go wrong out there – and when they do you need some basic survival skills. Plenty of people have died out in the bush because they didn’t have the knowledge they needed to stay alive. On the other hand plenty more have managed to hang on until help arrived.

Part of the beauty of off road driving is that you don’t need a lot of spare time to get out and have some fun. A weekend, or even an afternoon off, is long enough to check out a new trail. There’s nothing like a long trip though – load up your camping gear, stock the fridge with stubbies and head off into the bush for a week.  Heading into the wilderness is tough on your vehicle, though. Of course a 4wd is built to handle it, but there are limits.
