    Metal Masher South Africa

    Thought I would share an adventure with you guys. We had the privilege to lay out a brand new trail in South Africa, it was still unnamed but after the carnage we had, it was aptly named Metal Masher. It is located on a game farm and runs in a river approximately 4 miles. We where able to drive about 2 miles in three days. Day 2 our progress was measured in Feet/Hour as we did 250 feet in 5 hours. The rocks on the trail is the size of small sedans and the rock surface as smooth as ice. We still need to go back.

    Hope you enjoy the photos, have a video on youtube but not sure if I'm allowed to share it.

    Regards

    Tnx for the comments guys. We see all those Fordyce etc video's and try and get the same stuff this side. What makes it different here, we have so many wild animals around while we wheel. We had a whole group of Baboons following these idiots with their Jeeps, Africa Fish Eagle's singing their songs of pure bliss. Also had this beautiful "blood" moon everynight. This is a very special place and also only 10miles from my home.

    Absolutely amazing continent. I was lucky enough to spend a month up the Selous in Tanzania with my dad. The vastness and wildlife are truly amazing.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
