150804 - Slindon Safari
Time to play at Slindon again! I was convinced I didn't explore everywhere last time I went to Slindon so I was determined to go everywhere this time.
As James was with me again and I knew he has a flare for swamping my truck, Slindon seemed like a cleaner option. How wrong was I?!
There we were, minding our own business when someone dared us to have a pop at a large hole filled with deep, thick muddy water. And why not I thought, so off we went?
As you can see, James stuck again, cheers mate!!!
Mmm nice and muddy in the engine bay. Unfortunately a bit too muddy for the starter motor! I made the mistake of stopping the engine again so had to get a tow to bump start it.
We drove down this lane that admitedly was quite extreme but then that's why we're out here.
"Oooooh", said James.
We noticed a fellow off-roader in need of help so we looked to see if we could lend a hand.
Bit of a tug...
...and out she popped!
A brave little SJ having a go at this steep hill. He didn't make quite make it but not for lack of trying!
It didn't look stuck but this Range Rover was winching itself backwards using a tree. Behind him was an SJ that definitely was stuck!
Looks like another job for the girls ;)
Cor, I found a clean bit. Well nearly clean anyway!
Another fantastic day had by James and me at Slindon! Just a knackered starter motor to get out and fix and I definitely want to get the diff gears lowered now.
