Sculling silently in my skiff, sneaking up on the ducks, looking out for the mink and terrapin, ducking the heron as it glides into land, or even Shackletoning through a snowstorm (which looks weird from low down on a river)

Doesn't get any better than that

Quietly paddling in my sea kayak comes close. At one with the ocean and you can get really close to the wildlife.
Hmmm, not sure that qualifies as 'All Terrain' but still fun I'm sure

Cheers

when my brother was at leeds festival He had a unimog next to him. the peope didn't pitch a tent on the ground, they put a caravan on the back of their "car" as it was a steep slope they used the hydrolic rams to make it level. they also gave him a hand getting his car out of the mud

Hi...

Canoe... mmm... :nana: :biggthump The thing being able just to jump in the water if it's hot is super. It's more expensive if you rent it/them but also a much better nature experience IMO. :D

Shanks's pony, absolutely.

An Alvis Stalwart would have been my dream machine, but the gov't changed the rules, and it's now 2" too wide to be driven on the road.

Maybe I could get a Tatra 6×6...

I'll probably settle for another Landie, or maybe a Plushmobile.

Keith.

The good old LPC Mk1, this will get you everywhere you want to go, made by people, for other people(Leather Personnel Carriers!- boots!)
Personaly, I use a Landy to get me to places, then I park up and use my LPC to get me to the places the tourists don't even know exist.

In a real contest of the ultimate off road vehicle, you couldn't beat a Hagglund BV206. It puts less than half the pressure on the ground than a man, so it goes happily over soft snow. It is fully amphibious and can cross bodies of water as wide as the petrol tank will give it range to. It can climb a 60 degree incline, 60 degree as in more than 45! It can carry over four tons of load while doing all this or seat 20 odd people.
My future car. :super:

This might be considered cheating but it has to be said that these things are built to travel over some incredibly rough terrain. :roll:

Iv seen drivers operating the foot pedals with their hands as they stand on the inside of the 'windshield' and push the body of the machine up an 80 degree incline with that huge arm.

They get big too - some weigh upwards of 100 tonnes, and you could probably park your landrover in the bucket of one of those.

On the upside - Dig your own tank trap
On the downside - top speed of about 7mph and mpg is awful.
