'Wheelin' in the Congo
This is the kind of four-wheeling I like: expedition style, not exhibition style (i.e. blasting through mudholes or rockcrawling for its own sake). Actually going somewhere in the boonies, preferably multi-day (or -month, even) and camping every night.
I also liked the use of aluminum treads (aka ladders) to assist in traversing tough spots. I remember seeing pictures and reading about their use in Camel Trophy rallies in the '80s, but had never seen an actual video of their use.
BTW, speaking of the Camel Trophy; I don't know how many of you remember that but it is my all-time favorite motorsport.
