Water off a ducks back.
The picture I have of Dean Carson is a pot smoking academic that never work a day in his life for him self.
Sure I like the finer things in life and I have worked long and hard for it.
I also enjoy life simple pleasures

I tell my kids
DREAMS ARE WHERE YOUR GOING & WORK IS HOW YOU GET THERE

If the report is accurate, to me it sounds like an ignorant (and possibly lazy) researcher who hasn't checked out all of the relevant variables, who is attempting to define all 4WD owners as one group. In other words the report simply reflects someone who has no idea. I wonder who paid for this 'research'.........

He is partly correct about some and party correct about some others. But the gereralisation about all being all the same is a simplistic and stupid view. Who cares what he thinks anyway.. to each his own and none of his business!! He is probably just jealous because his Saab wont go off road.. Michael

Michael. You are certainly correct about saab's not going offroad. I had to tow one out of some mud at Toronto Lions Markets on sunday with the trusty Patrol. I have recovered a few toyotas [ one a loaded water truck] but this was my first saab.

Gawd, I couldn't bare to think what it would be like watching a sunset out in the never never with bad bottle of red....LOL

I agree with the sentiment of the other responses, who gives a ....

Most 4W/D owners enjoy getting out into the open air and enjoying what nature has provided us with. If this guy has surveyed 4W/D owners and they predominantly enjoy good wine then obviously we all have great taste yeah.

I say........ENJOY while we can.

Cheers.

Now where's that bottle of Grange I had here somewhere.

G'day Dio

If you google the Desert Knowledge CRC website the actual media release from the agency has a lot more going for it than a biased reference to good red and latte - not that I'm arguing against that. It's not an anti-4WD rant.

Cheers

Desert Knowledge

The whole article is much better balanced than the headline in the media. A worthwhile read, but it still does not cover all outback travel types. Such as young families that like to show Aust. to the kids. Older adventurers that are getting on and just want to get out there despite the possible hardships, and feel the outback, AWAY FROM RESORTS and flash hotels & overseas tourists in their droves.

No too far off the mark, but I don't "Bush Bash" and I DO want to stay away longer.

Yes, I like my luxuries when I return to civilisation, such as a good coffee. Good food we usually have while we are away.

I also like better accommodation in my old age, and moved from a tent to a campertrailer.

And there are certainly plenty on here who consider themselves rugged.

Cheers,
Greg
