All4adventure Roll Over

Hi all,
There was a thread a few weeks back showing a spectacular if not stupid segment of the boys from all4adventure trying to retrieve their trucks from a sand flat with the tide rising.

Not surprising, they tipped the recovery vehicle on its side complete with boat on the roof.

The next bit in this saga, is screened today, Saturday, on 7two at 3.30pm in the eastern states.

For those interested, its a must see or record it.

That link shows the entire bogging and what happens to both vehicles.

Thanks now at least if my recording of the show this arvo goes pear shaped I've seen the results.

Cheers

hi bill
thanks for the reminder just checked the programme and in w.a. its also listed on sat 25/1/14 @ 3.30pm on 7two (72)
I personally think this was a set-up for the show that went horribly wrong and wasn't what they had planned
acting up /stupidity and panic don't gel well
like others
I'm curious to see the end result
guess that's what make people watch these shows
cheers

Certainly wasn't a set up.
Jase himself admits it was the biggest mistake he has ever made and was the result of complacency on his behalf.

They were very lucky to get out of the mess intact.

Personally I dont think it was a 'set-up' nor did I see any signs of 'stupidity' or 'panic'.

Under the conditions (two vehicles stuck, tide coming in) I thought they showed a 'normal' and reasonable amount of concern for the situation they were in.


I have been in far less dangerous situations than this and showed a lot more panic than they did

Just an example of how a situation can get a lot more serious, than initially seen, in a very short time.

It's already on youtube explaining how it come to be that they bogged in the first place, i'm not gunna put up a link in case that spoils it for those who want to watch the full episode on tv but is easily searchable.

I love all the fridays experts on here too

Shane - your comment about Friday experts is spot on.

Here we have a couple of guys living their dream and making a few dollars on the side. So they make a few mistakes - we all do and it adds to their show.

In my 40 years going offroad I certainly made some major mistakes and hopefully learned from them - it does make for memorable trips.

If asked, I would drop everything at a moments notice and participate on the trips these guys do - they are a bit rough but that makes it all the more enjoyable - yes they mistakes unlike the silly old farts on this forum.

Good on them - the lessons learned from this incident is even in the face of a rising tide (been there done that) don't panic and carefully plan your actions. These guys should be criticised because they are human too and unlike some other 4wd shows not a lot is staged.

What I also like is the emotion showed in showing respect and admiration for people who went before them like the American airmen who have been the subject of recent shows.

It is soooo easy from the comfort of our favorite recliner to sit back and comment, well, nit pick.

I was surprised to see how easily what happened, also how easily they fixed the problem with virtually zero damage.

I watched the "clip" that went around a while ago but it finished a bit short, watched the full show today ......
It is interesting to see the comments above and how all the "armchair" experts come out, I will say in the boys defense that I can totally relate to the absolute panic they were in and given that, they handled it very well and got out, I can bet money on most saying that they are "stupid" and so on, if it was your car it would still be there, rusted out and lost forever..
I have been in exactly the same situation, a very remote creek north of Broome, week of big tides and we parked up and left the motor running because bubs was asleep and the a/c was on and it was in the buildup, the vibration alone from the motor broke through the crust and it dropped into the mud just sitting there, we did not even move, we had a 10M tide coming in and we were halfway down, yes it is cause for BIG panic, the car would have been under a few meters of salt water at high tide, we broke straps and had a hell of a time and got it out just in time, these guys did really well, nothing was staged and as real as it could ever get, I lived up in that area not that far from where they were so I know exactly what could have happened if it had gone worse ............ I learnt even more from watching them and I reckon most could if they look carefully at it again, they had a timer counting down with a no return on it ..
Well done lads I say :-)

Just wondering why you drove into a creek knowing a 10m tide was on it's way.
Is this a normal thing to do or were there lots of other people parked in in the creek giving the appearance it was ok and glad you got out.
Cheers

the tides up there are always big and sometimes they go out over a K, we were alone as it was on a creek that is on "closed" land, we were lucky that a guy came along and helped us, you will see in the show of the boys they went over the same wheel tracks and it had already broken the crust so they dropped like a log, we made the mistake of leaving it running, the vibration of the diesel alone was enough to cause the crust to turn to jelly and it slipped down whilst we were fishing, if it was parked and shut off we would have been fine, we have always been careful to not go over the same tracks twice on that kind of surface but lesson learnt now eh...
We were VERY lucky

I don't think they did anything wrong. Complancent, kind of, but there minds were on the show, and maybe not what they were doing. I think that they have to be commended because they didn't give up. They kept processing things in their heads, coming up with solutions. They had enough gear to get them out of the situation so that in itself deserves commendation. At the end of the day, men, and vehicles all came through unharmed and they got some great tv.............just glad it all turned out ok for them. They were probably going through 20mins of pure hell at one stage.

we all make bad decisions and this was one of them it goes to prove even the so called professionals can make a mistake

but any mistake you can walk away from and learn from is a good one

I made a comment on there face book saying this proves the point that if you do into serious remote places you need at least two cars

just think of the insurance claim if he had not got his brand new $100 k pluss 200 series LandCruiser out of that bog with the tide cumming in
