now renamed Selfys slaughter    ;D ;D ;D

we managed to kill

1 33" muddie (brand new) ouch    :-[ :-[ :-[

1 rear 1/4 panel      :'( :'( :'(

1 front 1/4 panel (brand new) ouch    :o :o :o

doc's winch cable but we managed to fix it with duct tape     :o :o :o

and then there was Mikaels rig which was hard to tell if anything new got broken    :P :P :P

but we all had fun    8) 8) 8)

ohh and the 2 local guys we ran into (top blokes) who helped us with 1 recovery then they stowed in a rear door when the 4wd slid into a tree   ;) ;) ;)

pics to come

cheers Selfy

Ouch sounds a bit like an expensive day in the mud. Although I am sure the action and adventure was worth it. I take there was some mud guts and glory had.

Great work Selfy for running this one - shame I couldn't make it - although my wallet is a bit relieved of the pain it avoided.

Hi All, Thanks for a great day out on Sunday. Special mention to Selfy and Doc for leading, and for being on the ready with the recovery winch. (Funny how I seem to get singled out in the recovery photos though)

Damage for the day: 1 Alloy Bull bar not sitting quite where MR. Nissan left it.
                    1 Dent in the record book for not gettin throu an obstacle.

Thanks again

Plumber

I don't know what to really write for this trip as we didn't really go anywhere but it still was a blast.
Have to thanks Selfy and Bulman for leading the trip especially for getting  me out of that seriously stuck situation.

First obstacle was Bulman getting stuck at trying to attempt to climb the hill and after some winching action from Doc noone else dared to try that hill..

So off we went to the next one which was the river crossing.. my first time doing such a thing and it stopped my heart for a few seconds as it was a lot deeper than i thought.. ( Selfy assured me it wasn't that bad before i plunged in )
Frankos crossed through it without a snorkel and managed to get away with it.. pretty impressive stuff..

so we were to meet up at the next hill where Justin ( Selfy's mate ) made it through the hill and it didn't look as bad.. So I thought I would give it a go and somehow the ruts pulled me in and suddenly there was a big concrete under me belly... Took us a while to pull me out ( lost track of time ) and a few more recovery trainings... Thanks to Doc again for the winch..

next up was to help the top 2 blokes that we meet as he reversed and hit a tree.. Out the winch again...

After all that we just played in 'Mud Heaven' for a little while.. haven't seen that much mud since MOA... and for some reason I had to get stuck again....

Great great day out..

Didn't manage to break anything other than my clutch..

a few photos..

I didn't growl.............just concerned as the water in the creek crossing was just over my bonnet and knowing how detremental water is with diesels.......and look at the pic mikael took of your bus...........

"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…

Hi All, Now that Mikael has posted the Trip Report I'll let this thread run another day or two in case anyone else wants to post up pics.

After that I'll condense it down and send the spare posts over to the "We all wanna know" thread about this trip as these Trip Reports end up on the Clubs Web Page.


Cheers, Wayne

Wifey doesn't seem to have noticed yet, maybe I'll get away with this one. Damage not bad B-bar shifted to R-H side maybe 15mm or so. Hardly noticeable. HA HA
