I think they take 5 - 10 mins to become available from posting.. strang rules they have or something...
I'm uploading it again.. don't know what happened there.
Can someone ask Admin why we don't have EDIT function in this section of the forum please? It would save a lot of time...
But then again, I'll just keep on posting anyway.
How many Vids can you save on youtube??
hehehe, me? a mod?
hmmm. Could do it, but I wouldn't ask for it.
I'm a mod currently on a forum with:
Anyways... that wasn't the issue, but having edit status for this section of the forum would be useful is all..
hahaha, yeah it's great fun
It's really manic though when the forum gets Slash dotted.. (slashdot.org)
Or when the BBC runs an article..
The forum runs from it's own dedicated server now days because it gets really busy, heheh
Stuff like this happens:
Now some pics from today... see if I can arrange them in the right order first time around (as I can't edit to adjust):
Fronty's in the morning...
Late afternoon and a little dirtier than the morning...
Part way through a lane.. (same place that Rick's vehicle got stuck)
WATER LANE (the rest of these show some of the area's we DID drive through, and some of the area's we didn't..
DID this bit
Did this bit
Didn't do this bit
Didn't do this bit
Water lane just gets worse after this area.. sheer walls on the sides, greatly washed out tracks on one side meaning that your vehicle would be leaning hard against the rocky wall on one side and if your tyre slips just a little your vehicle is toast..
Carl, still want to try it??
Hope you all enjoyed the pics.
Sorry, but that last Vid just isn't ready yet, don't know why.
come over then mate... I'll take u there
Nah, I assure you that one of the front wheels was spinning away quite happily
Anyway it was a good fun day all in all.
Carl, you really DO want to try Water Lane?
Cos if you do then we've got to make a weekend of laning and do it LAST on a Sunday afternoon... and we'll put a vehicle at each end and walk people in both ways to watch, hahaha.
Sooooooo... who wants to come to the next one? (date will be posted on Tuesday night when I've checked my next shifts). I will make the next lot of laning a little more fun by making it all longer etc.
i do want to do water lane
but ............i'm tied up now till next year
i have other things i have to commit myself to .......and little funds to play with
Watch this space..............I will be doing that water lane
Getting stuck on a tree root was all down to me letting one of my friends have a drive!!!! It WAS in 4x4 , just beached on a root , proves some things even with MT tyres you wont get out of without a push!!! Si went for the other approach, a very fast one getting the momentum to get him over it!!!!
What was quite funny is the fact that i worked out shortly after being splattered with mud that it was better to try with the front windows up!!!!!
It was an excellent day and the lane i got stuck in was one of the best, very wet and rutted with a big puddle at the end of it!!! As was Water Lane some great articulation fun!!!!
