Sometimes you just want to get away from it all, off the beaten path, back to nature. Of course your shiny new BRZ, ancient Dodge Shadow, or whatever you happen to call your pride and joy won’t really let you go far from where the pavement ends, and we all believe in using the right tool to get the job done. Some of you do happen to own the odd off-road-mobile, and those will get your pretty deep in the bush, but what if your goal is to traverse the rough and rugged parts of the planet in something that’s neigh-on unstoppable?
If that’s the case, the you’re going to need a machine that will do dirt, snow, mud, hell, even water, without breaking a sweat. What kind of can-do machine would that most likely be? There are lots of multi-axle off-off-off roaders that will fit much of the bill, and those have such a generous contact patch that they can run over your legs and all you’d feel is a slight tickle.
Getting even more adventurous, there are weird and wonderful machines like the above twin screw drive beast from Russia that looks like something you’d burrow to the center of the Earth in to cart back giant diamonds and fight off missing links. That’s a little too far off the beaten path for our purposes here, but considering going farther in the back country than even trail rated allows, what would be your weapon of choice?
