Peter Redman climbed behind the wheel of a 1952 Land Rover Shorty in 1973 and headed off to explore the Dial Range. Albeit a very short day of 4 Wheeling, he has been hooked on it since.
Incidentally, that ’52 Landy was also the vehicle that Kathy learned to drive in a few years earlier as it was their family farm runabout and transport to catch the school bus each morning.
A range of vehicles followed before settling on our current pride and joy…a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel GU Patrol Wagon..
Peter began working in the world of Tourism on a full time basis in 1998 as a Coach Driver/Guide and since that time has enjoyed everything from 5 Star Luxury Touring through to Backpacker & Bushwalking Tours and Camping Safaris.
Being a passionate 4Wder, the opportunity to take over Tassie Tag-A-Long 4WD Tours in early 2007 was too good to pass up and provided the perfect outlet for our love of the Great Outdoors and extensive knowledge of Tasmania.
Formal qualifications in this industry are virtually non existent, so our experience and knowledge comes from getting out there and doing it. Peter and Kathy have attended various 4WD driver training courses and both are certified 4Wders, with Peter also holding Advanced Driver Qualifications.
Combine this with over 8 years experience as a Volunteer Ambulance Officer with the Tasmanian Ambulance Service, 25 years as an active Surf Life Saver and a lifetime of living life to the full….and you know you are in good hands.
