I have been to the LR Experience school in Montebello QC a few times. It's only about 90 minutes from our house. It was a pretty cool experience, we went as a bachelor party primer and the guy who was driving was a newb so he thought it was a riot. I was expecting it to be lame but the instructor was cool and he was telling us funny stories of stuck up b!tche$ in RR Sports driving him nuts on owners day. It sounded like the owners day was pretty lame as 95% of people have no clue.

I can say the trail in Montebello uses every inch of body clearance and suspension travel, it was quite a sight and impressive. We got to beat on the LR4 in a sandpit and it was pretty fun. On the way there my diesel Land-Cruiser lost a plug in the injection pump and it slobbered oil all over their parking lot. It was like bizarro Land-Rover day.

I had a fun time at the Biltmore last fall. They had some stuff on that course that definitely tests the vehicles. I thought it would be cheesy, but I learned a lot from it and got a feel for what the truck was cable of.

Have fun!

I have the privilege of saying I was the first paying customer to take part in the Land Rover Driving School experience at The Equinox in Manchester, Vt. It was back in 1999. We took a two day trip from Manchester, Vt. to the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vt. in a 97 SW. I still have a ton of pictures from our adventure. It was a truly remarkable experience.
