Olivia has been earning her keep the past few days. On Tuesday she drove Cape Town flat - including picking up e-waste for Virgin Earth and seeing a few blokes for Cape Connect.
Today she did what she was made for - trundling slowly up a mountain in low range to take us to a Cape Connect mast site which requires clearing. She toted water, 3 humans, food, supplies, equipment and a faulty chainsaw which gave up after an hour's work. And then she came down the mountain again.
Landies are meant to be used. They're not just pretty, they're not simply road cars. They were designed to tackle tough terrain and keep you safe. Especially if it means facing slopes like this regularly.
