The Mud Life Issue 20 November 2020

Turner’s Torque

Hello and welcome to our twentieth issue, and what a journey it’s been! As some of you will know, I didn’t wake up one morning with the urge to start a 4×4 magazine, not quite.

This ‘ere writing malarkey started way back in 2000, when after a few years of writing the odd piece for my local Land Rover club’s magazine – Red Rose, I had my first proper article in Land Rover Monthly entitled ‘Two Lollipops Later’.

Another one followed in 2001, then a few years after that a regular slot in 4×4 Mart magazine. Then came the Difflock.com magazine, and straight after that I had 4 years with Land Rover World before its sad demise in 2014.

Back in 2016, after another a few articles in Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines, Muddy Madam and I started The Mud Life. Back then it was a purely a website, and once Muddy Madam taught herself the skills to create a magazine, in December 2018, The Mud Life Mag was born, just in time for the launch of the new Suzuki Jimny.

Friends and colleagues are often amazed that it’s just the two of us who produce the magazine, especially considering we have other jobs that pay the bills.

We have help from our readers who often contribute, and Simon (can’t not mention Mr Hastelow), a good friend who toils over his computer once a month, for free, to give us his Simon Says.

So a massive thank you to all our readers, contributors and advertisers for believing in us, and here’s looking forward to the next 20 issues!

Damian, Editor-in-Chief, and Karen Lee Turner A.K.A. Muddy Madam, Creative Director

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