Do you wheel?

It seems D-90 source has moved more towards the collecting aspect of Defender/Series/Land Rover ownership than actually wheeling these things lately. I'm curious what the split is.

We both wheel, and the 90 lately hasn't been because of Chris's back and my baby bump. Right now she gets driven a couple days a week to my work because she just looks sad. The 90 is my fave truck to wheel though.

If you added an Overlanding option I'd have clicked it. I don't think I'll ever get into wheeling for its own sake; but I like the idea of getting from A to B and overcoming the obstacles in between.

I choose option B. I really don't see why everyone gets into destroying a perfectly good vehicle by going in the woods. You guys are crazy.

I forgot to mention, now that I'm a RRC driver I'll be driving green lanes wearing a Barbour jacket and eating cucumber sandwiches on my days off. Does that count?

Seems I only own the 110 to wheel it since that is the only time it has been out of the yard all year.

Too funny. I have to admit this thought crosses my mind most times I go wheeling. But if you are going to destroy a perfectly good vehicle, it might as well be a defender

I mostly break things and upgrade accordingly
Although it's getting to a point it looks so good that I'd rather break something else instead!
