MAREE MAN

The Land Rovers bucked left and right over the rough terrain, the occupants holding onto anything that they could trying to prevent them from being flung out of their seats, although there were a few sore heads as mistimed attempts to go with the rolls resulted in bashed scalps against the metal frame.
