I would rather have a diesel in this situation than have to do one of those silly in gear starts that are the only safe ways of reversing a manual down a steep hill.

Besides the driver is a twit. Why so fast. Deserves all he or she got. Most people these days cannot reverse anyway. This is a rhetoric question and I do not want an answer: When was the last time you reverse parallel parked your car? Hmmmm

"Besides the driver is a twit. Why so fast. Deserves all he or she got. "

Phil, the driver is a member here - explained what happened in the last thread 2 years ago. It was an honest mistake that most of us felt could have happened to any of us. Basically had to reverse because the track ahead was blocked.

I would be careful jumping to conclusions...

Roachie should have known better. Still doens't change my opinion of what I saw. The instructors spent a lot of time on reversing down a track on the training course both my wife and I did.

Sorry Roachie but I bet there still remains a memory of something that could have been done better.

Now I know what the link was about and even Roachie intimated that they should have had someone guiding them.

Doesn't take much does it.

Might I say on Roachie's behalf that I am pleased to see he put it in writing that they may have done something differently.

So many people, 99%, always leave these "minor" bits out and try to make the event appear to have been caused by someone else or something out side their control.

Phil

PS. I meant to add this bit but the grey matter made a mistake. Never me.

Three follow up posts and still trying to get the taste of sneaker sole out of your mouth??

It's easier just to say sorry when you make a smart ar$ed remark and fall flat on your...

Take a leaf out of Roachie's book. Swallow your pride & apologise then we can all go back to being friendly.

Problem with forums, no faces, no campfire, no beer/bundy. No backing down.

And since when was the high country ever considered to be the Outback???

Dave

Can't recall exactly where it was but it wasn't the outback by any stretch...

Who really cares if its the outback or not. If thats all you can find to comment about keep it to yourself.

Hmmm. Once upon a forum, this place was tolerant, friendly and people had a sense of humour.

Given that it was tossed around the forum when it was current affairs rather than internet archive, this video is a classic example of how fact turns into internet fiction.

I was merely commenting on the title. If you can't handle it get over it. Some people on here have been members since the site was in it's infancy. Not that that means anything. Just that sometimes things get repetitive.

It was merely an observation on the title. Nothing more. Your remark however is less than friendly.
