Jono, Brings back memories.

We used to do that sort of thing many years ago with a Recovery Landrover and a steel bath. Went great until the Landy did a swift turn at 30 mph, ejected my mate who then took all the skin off his back, and had to spend three weeks lying on his front before he could get up. I give that sort of lark up after hanging on to the windscreen wipers of a Ford Escort at 40 mph on the same beach. Scared the living daylights out of me. Funny what you do when your young.

The best fun is doing a u turn with on the land and one the sea, we have about got it. The wind screen wipers dont tend to work very well with the bow wave.

My favourite is towing a sledge down the lane in the snow behind the car in winter.

When I was younger my mum used to tow my go-cart down there behind her 2cv. Great fun

Ouch - bang goes that six year anti corrosion warranty if Land Rover see it

Good fun though, used to do a similar thing with a sleigh behind a quad ATV in the winter here.

Speaking of new Land Rovers and salt water... made us weep seeing 2 brand new vehicles do this

Saw something in one of the mags a couple of years back about landies being used out on cockle beds, and amazingly they'd lasted for years without any chassis corrosion, but then they did have quite a thorough jetwashing at the end of every shift. Don't think I'll bother trying that in my Disco, would end up with more water inside it than out. Looks fun though.

The favourite round here in winter is sledging on car bonnets. Bit iffy if you slide forward and catch the locking mechanism though!
