When I first met My Wife, She had a 1987 Nissan Sentra. We drove that thing ALL OVER the Place! It only had about 4 inchs of clearance under it......I showed her how to drive it on Mountain Roads, were you would NEVER think of taking one!
We had that thing till 1995, Can not remember how many deer, ducks, geese, rabbits I threw in it and got Ripped up one side and down the other because of the blood!
We also had a Nissan Maxama Station Wagon. We do not have them anylonger....I have a 2 wheel Drive Ford Ranger and she has a HACK, COUGH, UGGGGGG Chevy Corseca.
Both Nissans took their fair share of beating on the off road!
I took BOTH places were guys said I could NEVER go.........The Key word is S-L-O-W and watch the ruts that will rip the underside out!
I took Both Thru Puddles that were up to the bottom of the doors, Again , S-L-O-W!
The Sentra made it to 325,000 miles. the Maxima only to 120,000 miles and blew a head Gasket and Warped the head. When we traded the Sentra in for her Prism that was Totoled in an accident last October, There was only 1 problem with it....Had to add 1 quart of oil to it every 2-3 weeks!
I don't need a 4x4......I learned from my 1 brother in a 1960 something Junker of a Car that looked like a Gremlin, on how to get back the moutain roads Slowly to hunt!
Might take you an extra hour or two, to get there, but it can be done, IF You take Your Time!
Why is that killing you so bad? It you take a Low Setting Car thru a Puddle at 100 MPH, YEP, Your gonna Stall it, but if you take your Time, your gonna make it!
Our youth are the Back Bone to hunting of the Future. Teach them WELL!
