Taking The Scania To Destination Extrême 4×4 Expo

Yesterday we went to Machilly, France for a fundraising dinner for Team Destination Extrême. In the afternoon they had a 4×4 Expo, so we decided to take the TGB 30. The temperatures were below freezing, and it snowed on and off for most of the day. Of course, -5°C is rather warm compared to the winter temperatures for which the Scania was designed.


Unfortunately, traffic was heavy because winter vacation started this weekend, and there was a traffic jam on the highway as cars full of families headed for the ski slopes. By the time we arrived, it was just before dark, and the expo was winding down. We had a cup of coffee and warm red wine before joining the small crowd inside for dinner.

For a few hours, we forgot the winter cold outside as we chatted with our friends and acquaintances about 4x4s and watched a short video from the Breslau Rally in Poland last July. We didn’t get home until 1:00am, but it we had a very nice evening and were happy we could go out to support our friends.
