Badgers Dwelly Day Trip
« on: 07 September, 2015, 09:02:38 AM »
So being the last to arrive at 08:35 I got the privilege of the trip report! As Fish didn't arrive.
So we met at Pinjarra Bakery sorted out who is who & where everyone was going to travel in convoy & set off to get muddy!
A few none turns later & abit of a back track we arrived at Driver road to air down! (same spot as Rustys Dwelly drive) Abit of a re configuration of the convoy layout & we are off! Badger leading Dot Bats father in law in his standard GU, AJ in his Q then me followed by Sam in his BT50 with Jorge (Dot Bat) TEC.
A few familiar tracks later & we arrive at Muddy Hollow a bit of a play Badger doing what he does! & we are off lots more tracks nothing too difficult stop for lunch a few more tracks & we air up & go home! I only managed a few photos! No one got stuck, no one did any major damage & a good day had by all! Apart from me doing yet another A/C bearing!
Big thanks to Badger for leading the trip & to everyone who came along!! But also a massive thanks to Thomas for lending me his spare tyres!! I think I am sold on new muddies! Although the Mrs did say when I got home & looking at it for 5 mins! "It looks higher"!! Oh oh is this the final moment she has worked it out ....... "Yes honey the bigger tyres make it sit higher"!! & her reply was "ah ok......." Not totally convinced but that was that! Phew!!

And Bruce has gone in to get his windscreen seal sorted today. Without me having washed him. They should have done the job properly to begin with!

Bruce would have been especially scared when in Muddy Hollow because he had been told about his drivers previous escapades there in regards to the R.J.A
and I Quote:

"Before too long the whole group was in the pit to watch an acrobatic performance by a car better known for his colour - or absolute lack thereof. What elegance, gently sliding down a river bank, water as high as the petrol cap, yet the front left wheel well and truly in the air. I am still ruminating on the potential rollover angles of a Patrol"

We really need to get Grover back, if only for the trip reports.

And the pre-chilled trakky daks.
