We also boast some of the world's best surfing (supposedly), so I think surfing is the Maritimes' equivalent of surfing!  Tidal Bore Rafting is our equivalent of getting drunk and seeing how fast we can wreck a boat!   :cheers:

 Drinking and boat wrecking is the provenance of jet ski and bass boat owners here >:(

Jet skis are Mother Nature's way of saying "You're too dumb to live anymore."  It's too bad too- they are great fun, and fantastic little watercraft, if only they could come up with a way of getting rid of most of the idiots who drive them while keeping the machine intact!

Good point... 

Although for something like that the only thing I can see being really useful is an old Lada Cossack!

am I the only one who thinks they've a certain charm?

hmm now thats a real beater for off road car,most of the crap they sell here and there are useless in woods,with all their alloy wheels,chromes,leatherseats et,all irrelevant in trail filled with bogs,mud,roots,etc.

its original name is lada niva,here mp´s use it widely,it has continuous four wheel drive,good gearbox,really easy t maintain and fix,good set of sturdy tools with it and it doesnt mind if it gets soaked abit since the interior is protected against mildew too,and has good holes in floor for draining,distributor cap is sealed against wet etc little good points.


and the price is good here too.if u are lookin for some offroader instead of some bling bling humWee :D

The Niva was the base model Cossack- they were the same truck but the Cossack had some fancier stuff, like windows and seats! :P  Seriously, the Niva didn't have a roof rack, and I'm sure there were some other differences.

All in all, it's in my top three for off road vehicles, the other two being a Jeep and a Land Rover Defender!

Reminds me of that joke " Why do Lada's have heated rear windows ? Too keep your hands warm while you push them. "  :D

I dunno, I'd take one- in fact, I was looking for one when I got my Jeep as they are just as tough and much cheaper!

Don't believe me?  here's one on the bottom of a lake:

    Sure did make mud look appealing :D You young'ns won't remember this,but back in the '60s VW ran a tv ad touting the water-tightness of the Beetle.The ad showed a Beetle floating down a stream.
