Stuffed it up today

Off down the river bed


Avoiding the deep rut on the driver's side


Which was quite deep ie we would have been fucked


But going into the ditch on the near side


Water, soft sand, unstable. Good one


Adrian having a quick look before he just drives out.
Puts a bit of cane down. As if. Haha



Maybe not drive out straightaway


Rear diff and rear nearside spring seem to be a bit stuck.
No, we aren't going anywhere without a bit of work



Spade got us nowhere.
Takes Jackall off Brownchurch roof rack.
Two things that have never let us down



Back on track

oh my, what "fun" you had!

Those 'raods' remind me so much of our avocado plantation 'roads' ......except we didn't have a Landy, we had a 1 litre Hyundai Getz Saloon Car.

Scary and deep those darn ruts.

Thank you for your kind comments via email.....I didn't think you would visit the green sanctuary, it made me feel a lot better writing it all out. No comments necessary(!) .......

Will email tomorrow. J ;0)

soory about the typo, it was meant to read "roads" of course.....

Is it us, or is it really moments like these that make fourwheeling fun? That is, even though the 4x4 doesn't make that much of a difference? :) Is Pippa directing, amused, or inconsolable?

Regardless, we like your ride. Cool!
