Default Pat Callinan 4X4 Adventures

Hey guys,

Anyone watching the latest season of Pats show? What are people's thoughts? It's a very different show compared to previous seasons..

Starting to move towards a more 4wd Action style. More about looking for 4wd tracks rather than the destination it seems. Still don't mind it but I don't think it's quite as good. Do wish he'd turn off the flashing drl's though, they are really annoying.

I gave up on Pat a couple of years ago, though I have seen a few bits on tv now and then. I'm finding the state of the 4wd shows to be pretty poor now. Pat - this is how you 4wd with the expensive gear when you don't pay for it and shave every day out on the track. 4wd Action - No more indepth talking about tracks and destinations, just drive hard until you break something. Offroad Adventure Show - Brought to you by "pick a sponsor".

All 4 Adventure I find pretty entertaining though.

Yeah though they are starting to drift also when you start towing huge vans across the Simpson or through Cape York.

And next we'll have a show called Celebrity 4WD where all the hosts from all the shows will be "abandoned" in the middle of the high country and will need to compete at various tasks to survive, like... Bought to you by...

...like what do you do when you have one wheel on your 4wd without any wheel nuts holding the wheel on (because this always happens)?

A) McGyver a metal detector from a tablet, a bit of copper wire and a set of headphones

B) use the vehicleís wheel nut brace for something useful

C) panic

Yeah itís all about the sponsorship dollars. And just about all of them are kitted out with expensive and in-necessary toys that they use for about a day at most.

I too liked All 4 Adventure and still do to a point. The bending of the unimogís steering arm was a bit far fetched and seems to be headed in the direction of the Leyland brothers by dadís account.

I saw patriot camperís program called Patriot Games. Not bad but very little regard for the environment and they were in vehicles that are pretty much unobtainable to most of us (namely that 6x6 beast that has some sort of huge lift in it).

If your audience isnít into 4wdn to begin with, you just further polarise those for and those against 4wdn. ďProperĒ 4wdn isnít always fun, but thatís what you take to get to the good locations, tracks or remoteness (which is fast being lost to technology).

I also find Patriot Games a massive turnoff. They show they have little regard for anyone or anything other than themselves.

With all of these shows there is a lot of product flogging and marketing. If you are new to 4wd you can end up thinking you need a lot more gear than you need to get out and enjoy the country.

What I don't like about some of them is the bush bashing just for the sake of it. I love getting out on to the tracks and black or double black are fine but I prefer to have a destination in mind doing that. It could be an escarpment, a mountain hut or a nice camp ground, just something to aim for.
