          How long is the drive in the 4 x4... We are planning a trip this time next year and on our itinerary we will be driving to Rocktail on my 50th birthday... We are wondering if this would be a fun thing with a lovely evening when we arrive or should we alter our itinerary ? Appreciate any thoughts from those who have been there. We are very much looking forward to our trip...😎S
