Play the Camping Check List Game!

Ok so we know there are a few more Jimny-camping enthusiasts, and we decided to help the northern hemisphere out with their warmer season ahead.

It's a lovely time for camping and our new game, at the link just below, is designed to help you pack within the allowed towing capacity.

We just decided to create a game that would help those like us who love camping with their Jimny (and family).

Have fun!

Announcing the winners of the "Win a Toy Jimny" Contest!

Thanks to everyone for posting and boasting, or showing off their Jimny's towing prowess!

The competition ran from Jan 9th to March 9th 2012, and we actually had three winners, as we could not agree (typical domestic!) - something we should have realised before going into doing the competition!
Next time we'll get Nige's brother to judge ;)

So congratulations to Jamie from Tasmania, Alen from Croatia and Martin from Germany - your Jimnys are on their way!
