Willy Wonka disclaimer

We are not mechanical engineers, we are not tourism agents, nor are we safari guides, boy scout leaders, driving instructors, survival experts, chefs, lawyers, solicitors or barristers. We are not meteorologists, palaeontologists, archeologists or astronomers. We don't make our livings from professional photography, musical or film critique, art appreciation or the study of ancient rock painting. We are not social scientists, psychiatrists, medical practitioners or veterinarians.

In short, we are not gurus and nothing on this site should be construed as professional or expert advice including but not limited to the above list.

The owners and contributors to this site simply share a common experience and are relating those things that had been found to work for them.

We don't advise you drive across flowing rivers or drive up treacherous hills. We don't suggest you swim in rivers with the strong possibility of encountering crocodiles or other equally nasty inhabitants. We don't propose that you attempt to cross isolated desert regions alone or modify your vehicle in an attempt to achieve better performance during any of these activities. We don't recommend you 'bend' laws or regulations that appear nonsensical or cross boundaries or guidelines that seem irrelevant.

In no way do we endorse any activity or modification that causes you to endanger yourselves, the occupants of your vehicles, wildlife or the public in general.

If you read something on this site that offends you then we apologise and state it was done without intention. We have no intention of offending - sexually, socially or racially.

The internet is a cornucopia of fact, fiction, humour, suggestion, fantasy and entertainment. We do recommend that you seek a wide-ranging and varied scope of opinions from all manner of sources.

We do suggest, that in areas of doubt, you seek proper professional counsel relating to areas of law, health, mechanical engineering and tourism.
