After conquering enormous waves crossing the channel during storm Emma we arrive in the UK faced with the collision of storm Emma and The Beast from the east. Both of us were keen to experience some extreme weather, perhaps this was a little more extreme than we imagined but hey that makes for a good story. We needed to get from Portsmouth to Dartmoor in Devon to stay with our friends who live on the edge of Dartmoor. From the forecast it was clear that we would be crossing the red warning zone and pretty much the eye of the storm. When things got really bad we teamed up with a couple in a Land rover defender 110 who as it turned out were just trying to get home. Digging snow, Recovery and a spinning of wheels followed for much of that night! Spending what little time remained that night sleeping at an abandoned Starbucks, that doesn't happen every day!

It is not often we get to experience such extreme conditions. Although this event was very hard going for us both physically and mentally it is one that we will treasure in our memories and go down in our greatest overlanding moments.

You could have took some people to the town..

Buy some valve stemms, and air down to 1.3 bar.... you Will get double the traction and would have be able to plow through 4feet of snow!

Valve stems are great got some recently! Yeah it all happened quite suddenly 😁

I can't wait for this to happen again 😍

Thank you David 😁 need to catch another weather event!

Hi guys do u every use chains on ur motor as i use chains on my old ford motor she gose like a tank

No we don't have any! Could have done with them that night but it is so rare 😂

Very entertaining hitching a lift with you ! Weird to see England with that amount of snow and look apocalyptically quiet ( used to it in Scotland ) ;-) Anyway thanks for filming and sharing, great fun.

That's brilliant! Thank you for saying so. It was a tough night but wow what an adventure.. need to go to Scotland in winter!

WINTER TYRES should be made a legal requirement, stupid idiotic British people.

I can watch videos like this for hours, I love the storms!

So good to hear! I will be on the watch for more storms 😆

Oops that’s embarrassing, the mighty defender getting stuck in that little bit of snow! My ranger goes through snow twice that deep. Getting stuck though is part of the fun and the adventure. This is just about enough snow to have some fun. If you can get some speed going it’s fun to tow people on sleds behind the vehicles, that is until you hit a tree! Enjoy the snow cause who knows how many more years we’ll get it before climate change destroys the world.

😂😂 it was worse than it looked the soft snow was covering a hard layer of ice! Your right it is all part of the fun and a great adventure story to look back on.

Notice the land rover blazing a trail in front of the bigger and supposedly better jap imposer!

Going offroad when its dark doesnt seem like a good idea at all

It's great fun in dark just as it is during the day

We were a bit stuck for options that night.

You are right it helps a lot!

Hi, I'm a researcher at Newsflare, a leading viral media company. We think this footage could do really well on a TV programme we are working on. I have sent an email to the business email associated with your channel. Natalie

16.08 minutes into the video; AND WHY HAVE YOU GOT THE SHOGUN IN 2 WHEEL DRIVE ONLY?? RIDICULOUS!!

3 weeks ago

Center diff lock means you have a two-wheel drive. You need three diff locks for a full four-wheel drive.
But those do not help much on an icy and flat surface.

1 week ago

It is in 4 wheel drive. On an open diferential the wheel with least traction will spin and the other will not, that is why you see only one wheel turning on the front axel. Just the way it is 🤷‍♂️

Thankyou for sharing your adventure, Superb video.

That Landrover was someone we had just met there and then so I cannot say if it was or not. Our centre locker is always on when in 4wd in the Mitsubishi 👍

A nice list of kit but proper snow tyres are missing hence getting stuck. Proper snow tyres are incredible in snow.

Nice video, I love driving in the snow. In the description it says all weather tyres. As in all season. Not winter tyres. But hey they work haha

2 months ago

I have a 2009 Sorento and run with winter tyres which are incredible. Here is a video you might enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciPMAXCyeVY Not to your excellent standard as it doesn't actually show the vehicle but you will get the idea.

We don't go for snow tires for the once every five year snow storm that we get here 😄

Great video, really spooky with all the abandoned vehicles. I have a 2006 Shogun on chunky snow tyres but the trouble is all the cars on summer tyres stranded blocking your path! I guess as long as you can get around them it's ok, it's fun having the right vehicle in the right conditions

2 months ago

Such an experience, not often get to see a weather event so extreame especially here in the UK. Tyres are important but I found nothing can be done one the snow drifts get so high and it packs underneath, apart from get your shovel out 😅

That part with all the trapped lorries looked like something out of a zombie movie

Exactly what I thought never seen anything quite like it! Was a REAL experience.

The landrover should not get stuck if you put diff lock on

3 months ago

It only locks the centre diff. If there is no traction it's not going to help

3 weeks ago

You could see the diff dragging through the snow, it was just too deep

3 months ago

It was ice underneath the deep snow, can't always make progress in such conditions.

3 months ago

The Defender didn't seem to have dif lock on

Ah maybe I did not notice

Now that's an adventure😱

i recall in 1981 when crossing the channel from Dover....watching of off the starboard beam we could see a 'HoverLloyd' ferry. You know, the huge vehicle carrying hovercraft...actually disappearing into the troughs of the waves. We couldnt see them for about 5 seconds. When you dont have Snow Chains :) , let your tyre pressures down. Treat it like sand. Great adventure! Thanks for sharing :)

And it would not be a good idea if you do not have a compressor. You had 3h on the road ahead of you.

Something else when it is that rough 😅 quite exciting in a way. Yes we should have lowered our tyres I thought of this just after, Kristina was not best pleased to hear so 😂 we got out with the aid of the traction boards and a bit of digging.

Looks like fun adventure!

Rehab Alternatives We had traction boards but they did not survive this. New one needed soon 😁

Hi guys, it would be a good idea, to place where to buy the ferry ticket and the costs so we can also have an idea of expenses that a trip could have.
An epic trip in the ferry!!!!
