Well done for helping him out.
I think the tyres where disabled so the car couldnt be moved and they could get back and finish their scummy job of stripping it and getting the wheels and other bits off.

What absolute tossers for doing that to it :x it makes you angry that others can do that and get away with aswell :!: but i take it from the pics it was just off the top of the steps :?: if it was it was not visible from the road so i would take it someone knew it was there.
It might be slow but i can go anywhere!

It's at times like this where you wish you could just batter the living pooh out of the culprits. There is just no respect for property these days.

I'm only 28 so relatively young but this thing sickens me. I was brought up to leave other peoples property well alone. I dunno, words just fail me.

Disgusting behaviour. Can't say more than that apart from recommending the owner have it checked for fingerprints (you never know) :(

Unbelievable! I cant say I blame him for being angry or upset. Makes you wonder what you would do if you did find who was responsible. Off the beaten track as well. Vandalism for the sake of it.
I also drink Port and I'm not ashamed to say it!

After seeing that - If i ever get stuck in my truck i am sleeping in it till some one comes and gets me out. In this day and age your belongings just arent safe anymore!! Such a real shame.
i bet it was his pride and joy - I would be so upset if that happened to me!

Starting point........

Image

Start of recovery..........

Image

At this point the land rover was attached to BRF`s fronty which in turn was attached to a Zuk to aid in the initial icy uphill climb..

Image
Image

From this point BRF pulled him out of the lane unaided .........

Image

The step that caused the burst rear diff.........

Image

The section that was covered by the first recovery attempt (aborted due to worsening weather)

Image

Just to show the scenery on the walk back...........

Image
Image
Image

Compulsory sheep pic :wink: :lol: ...........

Image

My favourite view of the day

Image

Proper country craftsmanship that has stood the test of time .......

I made my feelings clear on the subject when a person who should have known better posted on MC.

Great work chaps, sad outcome, I hope he is not put off.

:shock: :shock: Sorry I couldn't make it Neil, was stuck doing the christmas thing. Am sort of glad I wasn't up there having seen them pics. Nothing short of shameful, its a shame we couldn't find out who's done it. Its deffo fellow laners to have stripped the parts like that, no question. There's some scumbellys out there, indicative of society today. B###ards.
Someone mention laning? Just tell me when and where!
