    Of all the 12? vehicles on the trail, my Pajero was the 'least' equipped, with two open diffs.

    Second most spartan was 4ePikanini's with only a LSD at the back.
    The other vehicles had at least a locked rear diff.

    My Pajero made all but one of the obstacles. It had more than enough power, but the obstacle had a double shelf near the top, with a 'hole' in it, right on the line of the RHS wheel track. Every time the Pajero dropped a wheel into that hole, it lost traction.
    Ralph says I could have made it had I given it more stick and not driven it like a 'moffie'.

    4ePikanini made it through / up / down all the obstacles except the one cross-axle ditch. I had the privilege of gently pulling him out of it.

    In the muddy conditions on the very slippery clay, the difference in tyres was very clear. The vehicles with muds had a distinct advantage, while the vehicles with 'Highway' tyres had the most fun!

    I must say I was impressed with the turnout on Saturday. For Sunday the conditions had improved dramatically and I couldn't help thinking that Barto, Chris and Dirk missed out on a treat doing the river route. Here are some of my pics of Sunday.
