Hi All
Been away for 10 great days in the Riverland. When we were away, we received a phone call from my son who is a Licensed Surveyor. He has just returned to Injune in Queensland and said he was driving along one of their Survey Roads, when the back went down and the nose in the air. He did not know what he had done until he got out to see for himself. The Boys on site said it was the best bogged vehicle that they have ever seen!

After many phone calls and with the help of the grader, it took 2 hours to get it out. The 2 hour delay, was approval from both companies to use the grader, then get a long enough length of chain. I am glad it was him and not me. To think he gets paid to have fun and even a company vehicle to do it in.

Have a look and you will see why.

Cheers to All.

Hi Bob
I have been off of the air for 10 days or so, but did Doug have a little trouble as well.

Cheers

Hi Stephen. He did a few weeks ago. Posted some similar photos to yours. I think he was trying to retrieve some one else at the time. Bob.

Hi Rod
The Track was very solid up until that point when the road just gave way. You can see from the photos how solid the road is where the front wheels are.


Cheers

My travelling buddy got bogged - probably not as bad as that but he was stuck on all fours.
