    Fun with the Supercharged Rover

    Took the family to Corolla, Outer Banks, NC over the weekend. I really wanted to attend the 11/11 MIR rental, but was relegated to spending time at the shore, in the lap of luxury. Click here to enlarge

    Anyway, when I got the text from Motorkas about his new personal best at the dragstrip, I was pissed that I wasn't in attendance. I needed my motorsports fix, so I loaded up the wife and kids, told them to buckle up tight, and we went dune hopping and surf skimming in the Rover.

    Pretty fun, and as always, the Rover performed flawlessly. This thing is basically unstoppable, even in the hands of a novice, donning all-season tires. Although, a high pressure scrub was needed after it was all done. Had sand and salt water on the roof. Click here to enlarge


    Here's a few shots when wifey wanted a go at it.

    Yeah, it was fun. We didn't go in too deep, just a little splashing for the kids...er...me. I certainly would've won the father of the year award, if I get swept away by a wave.

    Good memory for the kids. Nice. I remember when my I was a small child in the car with my parents in NYC. Dad didn't want to go around the block for a parking spot so he backed up down the sidewalk. It was pretty exciting and bad-ass to me at the time. Especially with the people hopping out o the way.

    Where in the hell did you manage to get a car on the beach ?!?!?! If I tried this with my Rangie in CA they'd have helicopter gunships on scene and throw my ass in jail forever.
    Nice shots though...I hope you hit the underside with a good pressure washer.

    Sometimes you see an opening, you take it. Click here to enlarge

    Actually saw a few 4WDs on the beach. We were at the very northern tip of The Outer Banks, so I think it's legal up there. Actually, there were many houses that you HAD to drive on the beach, just to reach them. Although, we were the ONLY ones in the surf. Had a lot of onlookers, just waiting for the inevitable. In hindsight, probably wasn't that smart.

    Yeah, took it to a high pressure no touch car wash right after. As soon as you get the green light to enter in, a high pressure flow is shooting straight up from under. I just creeped in real slow to let that do it's work. As a Rover owner, you know how much under paneling there is. I raised up the air suspension and took a look-see under there, and all looked clean to me.

    Was a hell of a lot of fun, I can tell you that.
