You know when you are a 4 wheel driver when...

-You stop and look at any old rusty heap thinking "parts vehicle...."

-Your rig has more [farm/boat/military/other vehicle manufacturer] equipment than OEM parts

-The weatherman says "Stay in, it's dangerous" and you think "Time to go 4 wheel driving!"

-You're happy that you can't use 1st gear in the street

-A military convoy passes by and you only look at the axles, tyres and antennas

-You take your other half out to look at new home construction sites so you can drive on the unfinished roads and sand piles

-You have enough straps, chains, rope, etc in your rig to keep the HMAS ANZAC docked during a cyclone

-You can break down on the road, fix the problem and get back on the road without calling RACV

-The RACV guy breaks down, you can stop and fix his problem and get back on the road

-You have a brand new set of tyres, but you keep looking at the tyre ads anyway

-You'll drive 2 days at 500 miles a day so you can spend 2 more days driving at 5 miles per day

-You get reallybleepoff because you spent over an hour to go 10 miles home on Friday, but are grinning from ear to ear because you spent 6 hours going 4 miles on your favourite track on Saturday

-You set your rig up to have a top speed of 100-105 km/h on purpose

-When you pull up next to a Ferrari and all the Ferrari driver can see is tyres and whatever is on the other side of you

-You challenge the Ferrari driver to a race .... if you can pick the course

-You spend three hours mowing the lawn contemplating how your ride on mower would look and handle with a 3" lifted, 5 link coilover suspension, Swampers, having the engine turboed, intercooled and blueprinted .... does Safari make a kit for Briggs and Stratton? What about a K&N air filter??

- when you can only name 2 state premiers but at least 15 different tyre manufacturers.

- when you don't need to tint the inside of your vehicle's windows because the outside is already covered with stickers from the places you've visited.

You drive down the road and see a track leading to who knows where and think, I must try that track some day and see what it is like. Even got the wife looking for me when I am driving now but never had time to go back and try those tracks - bugger.

Relieves the boredom on the longer trips playing spot the new track.

When driving around for work during the day, and you spot another 4x4, all decked out and loaded up with camping goodies (usually a friday arvo) and you get an enormouse urge to follow him or to at least have a chat and find out where he's heading and for how long.
