hey reithy sorry to see the lwb stuck at the side of the house and no sign of the other one lol. did bump in to andy and had a good chat, seems things are picking up a little.

had a great day out again among the usuall problems or getting stuck and having some one nearly role my swb on the big hills :shock: (never let a learner driver loose off road) cost me a full tank of fuel as it was so far over on its side it emptied the tank out the filler neck but still stayed on all 4 wheels (just about) :oops:

took 2 of us standing up in the passengers side to hold it down :shock:

well pics will come up soon and ill edit some of the vids from the on board camera 2. (no pics of the incident) :cry: was to busy screaming at my m8 not to move as he'd stalled on a hill clime but he couldent hear me and being a learner and not owning a car he tried to start it in gear which made him jump and pull it out of gear with no breaks (engine still off) he then turned the wheel to try and control it not realizing it would tip the jeep on to its side in the ruts :shock:

think i will be teaching him how to do a controlled reverse restart after a stall next :oops:
