Despite the navigator sleeping most of the way back home we were back for about 17:00 and that ****** trailor was still following too...

Once the axle was off the trailor I told Angie to imagine it was a bag of shopping and to get it down the shed, she told me to..... :shock: Cant understand why, I mean you wanna pick up some of those shopping bags she drags in sometimes!

First time we have been to the "woods" it's a good site and theres some good tracks and lots of trees to dent the truck on :lol: Shame we couldnt have stayed longer but had things to do back home and had combined the visit with collecting an axle from Gregs, we will be back.
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

Had a great laugh as ever even if I nearly got squished against a tree by a landcruiser :lol: :? and I'm pretty sure that I was the cause of some amusement when Andy decided to park in the tyre changing hole which went slightly wrong, great to see everyone and catch up. It was rather slippery under wheel and a few times the car decided which way it wanted to go...fudge getting stuck killed a bit of time with trying to work out exactly how to extract him lol
Glad you liked the cakes Greg :D
Hopefully we will all manage to get down between Christmas and new year for a meet be good to catch up with everyone we haven't seen for a while.
