Land Rover Dartmoor Snow Photos

The view from the Land Rover on a snowy DartmoorThe rest of the country has had it for some time now, and this week it was time for the south west to get its turn for snow.

So it was straight to Dartmoor for some play time. I headed up during the day to get some photos.

During the night I headed up with the Torbay 4x4 club. There was 10 trucks out for the session, and the snow had turned to ice and it made the roads pretty tricky even for the 4x4's.

We had to winch 1 vehicle up one stretch of icy hill, but coming down the ice hills was an altogether more interesting prospect.

Even with low range, and diff locks engaged, the Land Rovers were still sliding on the ice. We drove as close to the hedges as possible, so we had some traction on the softer verges, but there was still times when the 4x4's started sliding.

When the vehicle started to slide, we had to turn into the hedges to help slow us a little to allow the car to regain traction. It was pretty sketchy, but as one member said over the CB, "you have to learn to drive in these conditions at some point". And he was right.

So here are the photos from the past couple of days.
