It was actually quite a boring day.

Two vehicles came close to rolling.

Another had to be winched 50 metres up a greasy hill. Moggs to the rescue.

One got stuck in in water up to it's wheel arches with water seeping in through the door seals (that was me). Adam then waded in from behind, as I couldn't open my doors to get out, through freezing cold muddy water and attached a strap to drag me out. A very big thankyou to Adam, he was wet to the thighs for the rest of the day. Good mates are hard to come by, I'm lucky.

Then we headed up Andersen's Track and I bailed out as I had to get home to a family function.

After that the boredom apparently ended. Things got really serious after that. Adam will no doubt pick up from here.

Think I was lucky I had to leave, although I missed the "fun" stuff.

Great day, great people.

Thanks for the arrangements of the day Adam. You're a bit harsh on yourself for the getting lost navigating business. Really, not a problem! You did well.

Speaking for myself, I enjoyed the day immensely. Culminating in nearly soiling my pants downing down that last mud slide in the dark. For me, it perhaps a bit different than Jimbo (and certainly a big shame about the water, that was unfortunate). This was my first EO gathering, and I don't think it would have mattered how the day went over all, it was great to meet new people and just get out & about. To tell the truth, I was a bit worried (not quite the right word, but something similar) in going to remote places with people I just met on the Internet, but totally unfounded.

LOL, we sized you up - too tall - would have taken way to long to dig the shallow grave ;-)

Funny how we all started out thinking the same thing.

Kir was first thought "what we are going away with people you have met on the inter, they could be axe murders...." lol

Moggs was right, we discussed it and we couldnt be bothered digging hahaha
