Don't think that will buff out...

If it's Tourist Season why is it illegal to shoot 'em?.

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

Ouch indeed Superjac, good to hear you're both ok,  although the trol looks a little bit worse for wear

"If you're going out there, I'll give you a tip. It's wild and it's rough and you're in for a trip. But once you've gone this far off the track, you won't turn around, and you'll never look back."

Our lockers, who art in the diffs Hallowed be thy name, thy traction come,thy will be done,in mud as it is in rocks,give us this day,our daily tread and forgive us our rollovers…

And here's a very low-def video of what the top half of the David Carnegie Rd looked like.
Which explains why we cut the trip short.
It was just a little wetter than we were expecting, and our gut feel (which turned out to be correct) was that these conditions were spread wide enough to affect a large portion of the trip :(

With permission from Superjack, here is his accident site.



We nearly hit a caravan at the exact same site.

An observation if I may.

If you drove on the left instead of the right side you'll find it much much easier to miss those caravans........... and cars and trucks and buses and, well, you get my drift

And if you're really interested, I have the footage of the accident as it unraveled  >:D
Not that you can see much through all the dust!...

On the way down towards Lake Mason, Howezit in the lead says over the two way - my map shows a track here, it looks like a more direct route. I say ok, lets go, he says - you're now leading UKKiwi, I say ok, lets go. Doc just followed. I got us into some trouble!!

We all got out with no worries at all.
