Allan’s career as a journalist spans many years; he considers himself fortunate to have been able to follow his passion for writing about trucks, sailing boats, four wheel drives, touring and camping.
We only sell products that we 100% believe in, and whilst there are only a few, we will be adding to them over time.

“I love your site !!! It has reviews on utes and 4WDs that other sites don’t. Trying to find another site with honest tests off road is almost impossible. Thank you and keep up the good work”

Having just contributed to your endeavours, I would like to add that my wife and I are grateful for the volume of useful information that your website provides.
For the past 10 years, we have lived and worked in remote areas of northern Australia. Arnhem Land, offshore islands and Kalumburu. We are currently in the West Kimberley region inland from Derby.
Your website has been of enormous benefit to us in many ways, and you and your team are to be commended for the practical and proficient manner in which it is delivered.
Thank you so much from 2 people who just love outback travel.
