I found I couldn't post a picture of what a girlie car like a Troopy does when it gets to a tree, so it will have to be here. Lucy will be known to lots so a charge up the Old Tiger Cat Track can show up the best and worst.


The blog is here

Must be something wrong with that particular Troopy.

Mine would have wrapped around the tree, eaten it, then spat out the bark for mulch, then continued up the hill. lol

BooBoo,
I'd have to whole heartedly agree with that one!

I was wondering what had happened to Lucy, his exploits where always good for a chuckle!

What's he doing lifting wheels??

I don't remember Darkie lifting a wheel in that spot or do I?? haha
It is virtually the same spot as my Rig pic.


Cheers Kev

shows up the advantage of coils Kev. Mind you I am surprised at the lack of articulation on the troopy, and I bet it is afterrmarket if I know Lucy.
Cheers Pete

Same place as mine John, just different angle, and of course with horse power I didn't need to spin my wheels and make dust etc..
I agree where is the old sole hiding, we miss him...

Blaze, mate, we all thought it was dusty at the weekend, not just there but I am sure there would dust behind Redback enterprises car after that climb had you done it at the weekend. I even saw a puff of dust behind a lizard track.

G'day John
Looks like the Troopy is doing a male dog impersonation - but from wrong end!
Cheers from the Moose
PS Problem was the battery wasn't it?
PPS Rest of our holiday went without mishap.

Enzo, you made it home safely and hope the uni offernigs were up to scratch on the return. Yoiu have to expect that of Lucy dog and car I am afraid.

I MM'd Robin of our meeting. We did a nice trip around the area North of Bairnsdale a few days later, going back to Dargo in March.

The problem was two fold. I replaced the battery, and repaired the Engel with a new compressor unit. Very good service from the local repair folks at Southern Appliances
Cheers,

John - Emma has been pulling her hair out trying to decide what courses to do, but she is in and that's the main thing.

Re fridge/battery - odd that they'd both pack it in at the same time. Did the guys at Southern Appliances happen to say whether a stuffed battery can lead to a compressor failure?

The campsite was nice and quiet the night after you left - either someone had words to the idiot with the loud music or he couldn't stay up late 2 nights running!

Went and did the ghost tour in Walhalla - no ghosts materialised.

Hope those cows are behaving and productive :-)

Regards,
Enzo

Plurry ghosts, you can never get them to perform on queue.

I hadn't asked the guys that but the cost would still be mine. The battery wasn't too bad as it has been used on other gear, just didn't have all the amps. Have a decent battry there now, deep cycle marine.
