Runners up:

Matthew Webber

“Best tip I have when going off road is to carry a quick and reliable compressor that will air you up in a short period of time. If you have a slow and not so reliable one, you will not be inclined to air down/up as often because it takes too long and you couldn’t be bothered to do so. This will mean you will be running the incorrect tyre pressure and more than likely lead to tears or blow outs or simply not being able to traverse the land your on. It maybe down the priority list but trust me, it should be up the top.”

Rayjude Smith

“When towing a caravan and your GPS doesn’t enable you to select car pulling caravan………. Choose bus or truck as this will help prevent you going down a narrow road/under a low bridge etc….. But most importantly it will save your relationship!!! Travelling alone isn’t much fun.
