After a week of adventure therapy off-roading in Portugal, with a group of former servicemen trying to overcome physical and psychological injuries, some of the vehicles are a bit dented but our spirits are not.
The former Royal Marines and Army personnel have explored all manner of terrain, from rocky hillsides, to deep dunes, and encountered more than a few obstacles for the Land Rover 110’s and the two Discovery support vehicles.
But so far, fingers crossed, we have managed to extract ourselves from all of them – even if it has sometimes come to the need for a bit of human ballast and a handy winch.
The guys are sleeping well, eating well, and laughing from dawn to dusk. Just what we hoped for!
