    Nope -just HELP from me, someone else may have added the rest.

    Although once it settled it wasn't too bad, just felt shocking during the slide down. Hence why I was happy to get photos taken before getting out.

    What a great trip, thanks to everyone who came out.
    Rain on the way out gave me a grin from ear to ear thinking of slippery tracks, lucky Bullets had his night club tent rockin when I arrived.
    It kept us dry and entertained until bed time, some later than others(Guy).

    We managed to cover most of the park over Saturday and Sunday morning with only minor damage given the conditions, Tim J really drove his car well as I kept looking back thinking he'll get hung up or cross axled. But no, he just found another line and kept on moving for the majority. Guy's call for help sounded like someone rolled over so we rushed back down to help only to find him with one wheel in the air, he must be getting soft or something

    Bullets had a good time getting the shorty through the tracks, only one side slope next to a tree saw him reverse out to try a different track.
    Thanks for jumping in and being my winch man after that, I needed you a couple of times there.

    Funniest was stopping by some Nissans at a bog hole with the bonnet up and asking them if they had a good time, the place was a mess from their donuts and plowing through the holes. We said hello and they just stared with jaws dropped, they couldn't muster any words between them. They mustn't have seen an old land rover off road before, ha ha.

    Beer o clock hill was too wet under the surface to get any grip, although Tim J had a cracking good attempt at it. I gave it two goes as fast as the old girl would go, the front end felt like it went vertical before bouncing me backwards. The owner said it needed lower tyre pressures to which I said "I'm already at 6 psi", maybe just take the valve cores out next time.

    We were missing Trav around the fire so as a tribute we managed to keep it big in his absence, some sweet potatoes may have been harmed in the process

    Land rovers do climb trees and yes, it was on purpose Guy

    See you all on the next trip,

    Eric

    I see I left a legacy at GCLRO, just missing a few tinnies to make it perfect!!! Pity the small turnout, used to get 20 Rovers to a springs trip a few years back, shame.


    Guy, what's with the Disco? getting soft in your old age. I bought a D2 recently couldn't warm to it so sold it last weekend.

    it worked,
    thanks josh,
    but it was a difficult moment for me.
    never driven a rangy guy,
    but disco's are good, yes the alpine lights do give you a good look at the trees wanting to hurt you.

    I know, a Disco, who would've thought. The rangie suffered from too much time on Fraser and now sits under a tree waiting for it next installment and the disco was the right price at the time. I do miss the sound of the v8, but not the fuel consumption. The Disco uses more than the 110 but half what the rangie was using.
