The Mud Life 4x4 Magazine Cover Graphic

I had a few longish trips planned last month that included green lanes, camping and visiting a number of companies that have some very interesting 4x4s and campers, but fuel prices rocketed to record breaking levels, resulting in a full tank of diesel for Deux Smurf rising by an extra £40 at an average of around 27mpg.

Turner’s Torque

TAKE ACTION TODAY!

Back in 2008 there was an inoffensive government paper on the environment that would eventually lead to a ridiculous amount of green lanes being wiped out. That was the NERC Act, and it appears it’s happening again, and the future of our hobby, its very existence is under threat.

We all know that the anti-access organisations are seeking to end, or seriously reduce, our access rights by lobbying at local and national level. Their aim is to rally as many sympathetic antis as possible to submit responses, it is therefore VITAL that we all respond to protect our interests.

I know some of our readers aren’t fans of GLASS, but on this occasion please head to Lauren’s pages, as she explains in good detail what we all need to do....NOW!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a GLASS, ATUK, TRF or any 4x4 club member, frankly I don’t care where your allegiance lies, what I care about is our hobby.

Our opinions DO matter, so please use your voice to respond and protect our hobby before April 9th.

In other news, it appears to be all doom and gloom at the moment, what with Putin being a dick’n’all. The loss of innocent lives and needless destruction in Ukraine is horrendous, atrocious and abhorrent.

One of the consequences of this war here in the UK is that fuel prices are going through the roof. With that in mind, I certainly chose the wrong month to go without any press cars and the free fuel that comes with them!

I had a few longish trips planned last month that included green lanes, camping and visiting a number of companies that have some very interesting 4x4s and campers, but fuel prices rocketed to record breaking levels, resulting in a full tank of diesel for Deux Smurf rising by an extra £40 at an average of around 27mpg.

That proved too painful for the wallet, and in the end I decided the ever dwindling bank balance couldn’t sustain all those trips, so I stayed at home, and sulked!

That said, I did manage to head out to the NEC for both the Classic Restoration Show and Outdoor Expo, which were fortunately on the same day, which you can read about later in the mag.

Finally I want to say a massive thank you to all our readers, and a big ‘hello’ to our new ones as monthly readership continues to grow. We’ve got a bit to go to rival the big print publications, but we’re getting there.

Damian, Editor-in-Chief

The Mud Life is all about 4x4s, and enjoying the great British outdoors.
