Default Just Turn the Dial to 'Rock Crawl'
This is video of Top Gear's Clarkson taking a new Disco up a Scottish mountainside. I especially like the 'Rock Crawl' section! Top Gear Discovery Episode 3

I don't know about that, but they certainly don't adhere much to TreadLightly! in Scottland, I guess. I think the Disco did pretty well for a stock SUV, but after he went completely off the trail, well, I wonder what he was thinking? It's a TV show and all, but obviously no vehicle has made it to the top because there are no roads to the top, wouldn't you say?

I agree, but I am sure they got permission first. Plus since they were going to do it they should have done it right, there were better lines to take. The terrain seemed very similar to parts of Alaska I have wheeled, you have to think before you move. But that's Disco dancers for you My best friend is one so I always have to bust them, just like they bust us for owning "heeps".

I really think you and George would do great with his spotting skills and being able to read the terrain. He forgot the cardinal rule- when it doubt, scout it out.

I saw that whole progam, it was very funny. He got stuck twice and had a support crew come and unstick him. The land anchor they used was not a tread lightly friendly piece of gear. I like Scotland let's all go!!!!!

Those guys are practically God over there.. they can get permission to do pretty much anything they want lol. Have watched that program for years now. Some amazing episodes. My favorite is still the Trip across Africa and the 24 hour race where Jeremy cried haha
