    If you go around in Greece, you'll see many agriculurers still using Toyotas and Mazdas (pickup vans) made in the 70's. These vehicles have spent 30 years carrying loads on dirt tracks and in fields of mud. I've heard that the Volkswagen Taro diesel 4wd used to be quite able in off-road situations (I think it had the differential lock ability in both axles), so I am sometimes thinking of looking for one. Lots of loading space, only 2 seats, though.

    In Venezuela that (the Toyota) took us from the river bank to the main residence of a Hato (plantation) in the rain forest. We arrived in dry weather with 12 people crammed in the back with the luggage. The roads made some of the places I use to bo 4 bying look tame. When we left it had started to pour. I don't mean just rain, I mean torrential down pour. The 25 mile drive back to the boat landing was an experience. I was up front with the driver, and silently prayed everytime he would pause, cross himself them floor the vehicle to cross some small swampy area. Of course the crocodiles may have had a small part to do with that. It was an adventure I would repeat in a second. Of course there is no way I could ever drag my hubby out to something like that trip. His idea of roughing it is my new Honda element and motel 6.
