    Cape Land Rover Fun Day at Black Pearl Vineyards

    A fun day indeed doing a series of obstacles at Black Pearl Vineyards in Paarl! However, I was a bit miffed with the performance of my RRS - I was the only vehicle to not be able to clear all the obstacles even with an extra 20mm height setting using my IID tool. At one point, I scrapped the...
