Mission 48- Experience Driving on a Guided 4X4 Off Road Trail

"I’ve always pondered why the massive road hogs don’t fall over when climbing above boulders and venturing through uncharted waters that sometimes leaves the vehicle hanging on its side with tyres floating in the wind."

I was driving through some traffic this morning when something filtered into my womanly mind, a realisation that smacked me like a bug hitting the windscreen sideways. We decorate our humble abodes to reflect our personalities or tastes as one would call it but why don’t we do the same to our cars, the very movable entities that teleports us to our required destinations? It feels like the same monotonous vehicles drive past me every day and it almost brings a melody to mind called ‘The Yellow Car’ from way back when I was just a little princess wearing my Mum’s pantyhose to create long hair.

WARNING: Watching this video can result in a continuous tune playing on your mind whilst driving in the future. I take zero responsibility for the irritation of this consequence.



I decided to investigate why we have to conform to the same colour vehicles available at every car dealership. Why are our choices so limited... so scarce... so small? It’s like living in a ‘Charlie Chaplin’ movie where certain important things are so restricted and one can’t do anything about it! I did a little research and apparently it’s all based on the actual colour cost/availability and the resell value of the transportation unit. One is more likely to purchase a silver car than say a bright pink one with yellow polka dots and sequenced side mirrors.

I recognise some individual’s attempts out there on the open road... the efforts in trying to bring character to their vehicles with those fake eyelashes, red rhino horns and bumper stickers displaying their family members or preferred sports team. Observing the back of someone’s car communicates so much about that driver. You can almost sum someone up by the stickers or merchandise they have on the back of their cars. Tissues on the back window could resemble one who suffers with sinus problems or that women who has every pet she owns displayed on her back windscreen, clearly she loves animals or has kids that insist on getting them. To the man who has the ‘Wash Me’ words finger imprinted on his window conveying that someone out there in this big wide universe actually cared to remind him of his much needed chore. Or that young teenager who has certain words she would like to get out, using the roads audience as a boxing bag. I realise there’s an inner desire inside most of you just wanting to ‘pimp your ride’ and that is where my brilliant solution comes into play... ~drum roll~... Drive Through Car Enhancements!

Wash out temporary hair dye has been the revolution to being able to experiment with hair colour without it being permanent. Why can’t we get temporary car paint that does just that... washes off within a few rain showers returning to its original colour? Do you feel like driving a different colour car today? Just drive through the car enhancements booth and it would work like the ‘Hotwheel Color Shifters’, instant colour change... amazing! Imagine the possibilities... car tattoos... car ‘Bedazzled’, our roads will be the foundation of vehicle art! Genius!

I’m sure I might have had just a little too much tea today so it’s a Friday and I think it’s time for another Little Miss Mission Impossible adventure...

Mission 48- Experience Driving on a Guided 4X4 Off Road Trail

South Africa is a country that is known for its astonishing scenery and destinations that leaves one in awe and wanting to explore further. Many of the off- the- map treasures are not easily accessible by a normal car and therefore would potentially require a vehicle that is engineered for off- road. A metal machine that is manufactured to cope with rough terrain and natural obstacles that one possibly could encounter stepping off the GPS targeted areas.

I have had this inner desire to upgrade my carriage to something that would be more practical for discovering unique areas of my country and a 4X4 would be helpful. I’ve always pondered why the massive road hogs don’t fall over when climbing above boulders and venturing through uncharted waters that sometimes leaves the vehicle hanging on its side with tyres floating in the wind. This is something I want to find out for myself... what makes a 4X4 special and so desirable amongst so many of the outdoor or ‘camping/caravanning’ South Africans?

I Little Miss Mission Impossible will become the off-road gal... the women who ‘Conquered’ a trail! I shall be placed in a 4X4 that hopefully has great suspension and be guided through ditches, troughs and mini dirt mountains. Not sure what ‘MacGywer’ moves I’d pull should we get stuck in a mud ditch...

Pace Yourselves
