Hi Eric,
Yes it is. Well I think it is. It's one of the crossings on the southern section of the telegraph track but I lost track of the photos v creek crossings by the time I got home. I took the photo from the downstream side of the crossing and I'm standing just in front of a little drop off.Was up there in June last year.

See Ya

At least you didn't call yourself the Bees Knees. Welcome to the club and keep rocking.
You will have to keep the June longweekend free for a bit of a get together on the River near Loxton. A few forumites will be there. Got a couple of tracks in mind that even a soft roader could follow with detours LOL

To all those that have replied & welcomed me into the brethen.......Thank You.

I will upload a small piccy of the Honda in the next week or so. But really, it's nothing special, besides the stuff I've tacked onto the outside.

Anyone remeber the Delorean from "Back To The Future"?........ well......... its sort of maybe a bit........well maybe a big bit like that!!

I just can't help myself, I won't be happy 'till I can't see out of the rear window.......

Anyway, thankyou all for having me on board.

Rick - off track completely and don't wish to jack the thread but I just had a look at your details and see you have a compressor under the passenger seat - do you have any pics of what you did or the finished product? I'm thinking about putting my ARB under there over the next few weeks before heading up to Cape York and would appreciate any advice.
Thanks
Pete

Welcome,

We used our Freelander offroad for 2 years before we bought our Troopy. Did a lot of club trips and went anywhere a Disco could go except for the real lumpy stuff where we ran out of ground clearance or the real steep stuff that needed low ratio 1st but on the trips we did, it was not often that we did need a tow or alternate route.

Soft offroaders are under-rated for off road use and , espcially in mud where their lack of weight helps.

You learn a few tricks to survive with no low ratio and an auto helps. Also carrying a couple of snatch straps plus having rated tow hooks helps a lot along with a friend or two to help recover you.

In my experience, you can go a long way in a soft off roader, then get stuck. You can go further in a standard Troopy, Patrol, etc and get stuck. Then you can go even further in a modified Troopy, patrol, etc and get real stuck real bad and have to use self recovery as no-one can get as far as you to recover yourself.

Have fun

Stevesub

Welcome aboard Lone Wolf, nice to see all the "real 4wd" rivalry did not scare you off. As said earlier, some of the soft roaders go pretty hard before they get stuck ;-) Hope you enjoy the forum.

Cheers
