I had not been out for 10 days & needed to get fresh food & fuel for generetors & pumps.
The winch failed yet again,& walked 4/5ks back to the farm house to ring for rescue 7 was by a chap 7 his two sons from Pine Creek by using 2 high lift jacks together on the one corner & Bugger me on my return was bogged again on the way in about 20mtrs up, no photo's.
Did i mention that we had 321mm of rain since Jan. 1 & a further 100mm that night while it was still stuck.It was the 13th.lol

Bob.

That brings back memories. Lived in Darwin for 20yrs from 1971, had a Toyota ute body FJ45 with PTO driven Toyota winch. Lost track of the number of times one would break through the surface to the pea soup and sit on the diffs. And then the pea soup would seep into the drum brakes and chew out the linings thus not very efficient brakes.

Ahhh Bob!! The joys of the Top End in the WET


Hahahahaha....counrtyside gets that soft that even a Suzuki will get bogged. Been there........lol

No pussyfooting driving those tracks. Walk any water first, make a judgement and then kick the Loud Pedal in the guts to get some momentum up. Winches are near to useless as you will uproot too many trees.

Enjoy the rest of your stay :-)

Willem i walked up the road a couple of days prior & deemed it ok as it was to the sides where the probs,were,i just did not keep to the centre enough.
you live & learn Eh.I thought about the possibilities of the trees coming down with all the water around the roots & decided to put the cable right on the base,i had nothing to lose.
Plenty of those pesty Marsh,March & stable flies here too,of which you posted about the other day Lol.

ROFLMAO!!!!

The Titanic sinks again. Bob when will you get a Nissan and get on with the adventure hehehe.The winch failed again?? you poor bugger you must be the unluckiest 4wheeler I know, I would be spitting chips with that manufacturer, they must be made accountable for this if it is another install or manufacturing defect.

Another Nissan recovery vehicle was it?

Why so long to post such pictures? afraid of the ribbing from "mates" like me? LOL!!! Good onya and keep up the good work.

Your Mate Trev!!

Trevor,i would never lower standards & get Fnissan.Lol
For the simple reason that there would be no adventure Lol.
The winch allowed me to spool out & in again when attached to the tree & pulled me about 10mtrs then stopped,it may have had water in it when i came through an earlier water crossing about 600mm deep but only 2.5mtrs wide.I will have to wait till i get out of here before i get it looked at.

Now Bob, move all that weight (assorted gear) on the back of your tray over to the passenger side and you probably would have been OK :)))

What is similar with Willem and Bruce? Not only did you go looking for trouble in these shots, YOU DID IT IN YOTA'S!!! of course you were going to get bogged with that crazy combination.

Bob, I had a funny feeling before you left you were going to make me smile with some funny shots like this. Love your work!!

Cheers guys,
Trevor.

Bruce, How did you get colour into these photos? I reckon all pics from your youth would have been black and white only!! LOL!!

Nissan or Land Rover? doesn't matter much with these dinosaurs anyway, the new Nissans are hardly on the same level playing field.

You're a wally Trevor hahahahahahaha,
But seriously mate you need a good Isuzu MU, but I am think of buying a Jeep. Last Tuesday I was a passenger in a Chrysler 300C 3.0lt diesel and sh't can't they go, so the Jeep with the same motor might be a good tug for the future.
