Few pics from today, nothing very exciting as its not easy taking your own pics whilst dropping down the side of hills, John will tell you I gave my little truck abit of a work out today :lol:

A veiw from the top

John trying his hardest to scratch his car even though SWMBO said not to :lol:

Couple of mine, towbar electrics took a hammering today.

Had to drive home with no air filter as it got a little damp after taking advice from John as to where not to drive (turned out to be the other track, didn't it John :twisted: ) Think he has some pics of that little incident, had to park on a side slope to drain the interior out abit.

Didn't realise you took so many pics John. I did rescue one surf on my own, but as you say, it takes two smurfs to rescue a fronty :lol:

Richard will be arranging another meet down there shortly for the Surfs, but all will be very welcome I'm sure.

I wont be arranging another one in the near future, got the Plains run in October to get through.....we now have three additional places for that, thanks to Woodzie, When I hear anything from Richard I'll post it here for anyone wishing to join in :)



Jim now knows where NOT to go :oops:

Nice one Shaun, glad you got home ok. Having to give my starter motor a tap in the mornings as it is sticking after the bath I gave it, have to whip it off at some point for a clean.
