Tell me Codprawn that is why I love driving from south Wales to the north all zick zack roads (like here you must have had Norwegian road engineer overlooking the job) although they could possibly be straight ...... one thing surely you´ve got is your road is quite a bit wider than ours.

Piece of cake, put it in 4x4 in making sure beeing on high revs to get the turbo in and up it went ....... seriously talking it was not a problem as 2,8 ltr engine with intercooler although the 32" inch modification did not help a lot as towing nearly 2,3 tons up 16° slope I had to be on lower gear and higher revs.

Did had to give way as other drivers didn´t want to hang on behind

In general nice piece of 4 x 4 nicer to drive than my Hummer (H1), it would have taken whole day towing

Depends on the road - some of our mountain roads are seriosuly narrow!!! Didn't realise you had visited Wales - I have been to about 40 different countries but never Iceland - hopefully I will change that soon!!!

Number of times I have been to Wales and like it a lot, I visited north to central Wales some 5 weeks ago.

When you come to Iceland please make sure to pop in for a drink and meal at least.

And I will take you out for a spin
