The Mud Life Issue 10 January 2020
Whoop it’s 2020! Happy New Year everyone, we hope you all had a cracking Chrimbo.
Muddy Madam and I had a massive task to get this issue completed before all the Christmas festivities began, though we didn’t quite manage it. It’s now Boxing Day, and I’m writing this whilst enjoying a Guinness (or 4), reveling in the heady anticipation of falling into a turkey induced coma, and Muddy Madam has her feet up in eager anticipation of schmaltzy Christmas TV fare.
Even with the magazine deadline looming we still managed to get out and drive a few green-lanes, as well as coming up with some new ideas for this and future issues.
On that subject, in this issue I would like to introduce Lauren from GLASS (Green Lane Association). She’s the Communication Officer, and will be providing us with a monthly round-up of TROs, VRs and other such information from the world of green-laning.
As you know I’m able to borrow press cars, and this year over Christmas and New Year we have the SsangYong Korando, the 1.6ltr Ultimate Auto 4×4. I’m really enjoying it so far, and we have it until the 8th January, so I expect it’ll see a few green-lanes before it goes back. Stay tuned.
What’s in this month’s issue?
Well, you’ll find a couple of show reports, one of which I’d planned for the December issue (the Emergency Services Show), but because I have the time management skills of a carrot I didn’t get it done in time.The other was a wander around The Great British Land Rover Show.
Of course it’s also packed with the usual stuff you love – green-laning trips, new 4×4 reviews, reader’s rides and the rest. Enjoy issue 10, and we hope to see you at an event or two throughout 2020…
