From the moment I paid the Western Wilderness team went above and beyond with their craft. Teresa answered and questions prior to the course, and instructor Glynn was welcoming, easy to get along with and obviously passionate about day ahead from the moment we arrived at the meeting point.
We did the bush and sand course which was evenly split between the day; It was absolutely fantastic! The terrain we covered ranged from easier flats in the pea gravel and sand to overcoming deep mud ruts and steep sand hills all under the guidance and knowledge (years and years and yeeeeeeeeears of knowledge) by Glynn.
There was never a dull moment, everyone was friendly, eager to learn and happy to share a terrible joke over the radio. The interactive nature of the course meant the route and approach was always explained, giving you confidence to cross the obstacles.
We learned so many things from proper use of gear ranges, recovery techniques and how to properly navigate a range of terrain.
Glynn was always happy to answer any questions, impart his wisdom and teach the course in an engaging, passionate and interesting way.
By the end of the day, I felt 100% more prepared, had a much better knowledge of my vehicle, and had gained invaluable experience from the days training.
I would recommend this course to everyone, both beginners starting their 4wd journey and those already with some experience. There’s always something new to learn, and with Glynn’s (questionable wit and) wisdom you will come away with a smile on your face, barrel full of new 4wd knowledge and a greater confidence in your vehicle.
I wouldn’t hesitate to do another course with Western Wilderness the experience was worth every penny.
Driving a four wheel drive (4WD) can take you on the adventure of a life time. But first you not only have to learn to take control behind the wheel of your four wheel drive (4WD) but also how to survive if the unexpected happens to your four wheel drive (4WD), i.e. mechanical breakdown, catches fire, severely bogged, or you become disorientated in harsh remote areas.
