sorry jim (woodwizard) :oops:


:lol: Someone had to be first. Made be feel better about it after seeing a rangie stuck in the same hole and then me acting as an anchor point for that guy in the hi-lux.
Glad you got home safe and sound.
One thing I did learn was how limited the front suspension is on a fronty, our wheel waving photo's look cool but just hilight the lack of travel. Me thinks a modded toy may be on the cards :twisted: :wink:

Just a quick correction to the pics from Mr Oktober.

"Early Sunday Morning Camp site", I was up and gone by then so it wasnt tah earlie :lol: :lol:

Glab you had a great time without me on Sunday a the P&P. I had a great time on the Laning with you guys on the Sat.

Will put my pics up later tonight hopefully.

Have checked out my fronty and have these are the problems I had during the laning.

1) Dash vent mount for the GPS fell off.
2) Moblie phone speaker fell off it mount.

Have also found a clean shiney bit the fronty, bad news is its the tank protector. Ooops need more clearance....

Thanks for a great time

Cheers

Right then, piccies....

What with being Si's official photographer, and not driving for once, I've actually got some good ones...

I'll post a couple here, and the rest'll be in my website gallery...

Firstly, a shot of the BWB in all it's (somewhat dirty) glory late on Sunday afternoon...
Image

And now, one of the big Mog beastie that was running around making everyone else look incompetent most of the day...
Image

Until it tried one trick too many, and had a slight attack of nature, hehe

No worries...

Shame the Mog didnt come through unscathed... Crawling about all day going bloody everywhere, and the only thing that stopped it was getting a bit of twig between the wheelrim and tyre bead after they flexed a little going up one step..

Rest of mine are up now, btw...

Feel free Carl...

If you click on the pictures for a second time, it comes up at full resolution, rather than shrunk down... Useful if you wanted to play with em, or use as desktop pics, etc...
