Phil has a grown daughter working as a veterinarian in New Zealand. Kristy Motz remembers with nostalgia her dad's four-wheel-driving
in the desert. So, she bought herself a big, new, shiny Ford 4X4 (which she named "The Beast") equipped it with the obligatory
massive roo guards, and engine air intake higher than the roof,
and joined the 4-wheel-drive aficionados in New Zealand. New Zealand is not a desert; there they don't do rock-crawling,
they do mud. Man, do they do mud! Kristy's first outing with The Beast was for the sole purpose of getting it as mud bedecked as
possible. When I in my simplicity said "I don't want to paint your kids," I could never have even imagined this scenario.
