It’s that time of year when a lot of our green lanes are sodden and therefore susceptible to damage. I was out and about the other day in the Audi Q8 and there were a few lanes I wanted to explore, but after a few days of torrential rain I decided to turn around as I didn’t want to make a mess. The other reason was, even though the Audi’s Quattro system is very good, sliding off track would have been a real possibility.
Again Brian’s words echoed in my mind… “Please be careful, it’s the only AT35 we have.”

The Mud Life 4×4 Magazine Issue 43 November 2022
With dark nights closing in and more rain than I can shake a stick at, two things have been on my mind.
The first is that it’s that time of year when a lot of our green lanes are sodden and therefore susceptible to damage. I was out and about the other day in the Audi Q8 and there were a few lanes I wanted to explore, but after a few days of torrential rain I decided to turn around as I didn’t want to make a mess. The other reason was, even though the Audi’s Quattro system is very good, sliding off track would have been a real possibility.
Secondly – batteries. I don’t mean car batteries, but those little disposable types that you put in torches, radios and so on.
It occurred to me the other day that I have quite a few very good torches lying around, both at Turner Towers and in Deux Smurf that I no longer use due to not having batteries. Instead I find myself using rechargeable torches that I can either charge up at home, in the car, at work or using a battery pack, like my Ecoflow River.
The only downside to having a house full of rechargeable products is that you soon amass a large collection of different plugs, wires and cradles, with no idea which is for what. Luckily Muddy Madam has a label maker.
These thoughts have given me an idea for another article about battery-less camping, so I’ll leave it at that, see you next month!
The Mud Life is all about 4x4s, and enjoying the great British outdoors.Damian and Karen Lee Turner (A.K.A. The Muddy Madam)
