    Default Rooinek - Kouga - 13 October 2007

    I've driven past this sign that says Rooinek so many times but have never seen it. So when the AT4x4 club said we're going to Rooinek, I was sure they meant RooiHOEK.

    Quite a nice trail, with a couple of steep, rocky inclines and declines. Had a go at my new Kumho's and I'm quite impressed with them on those rocky surfaces.

    Was very hot, and at one stage it was 40 deg celsius in someone's cab!

    The day wasn't without mishaps (or as I call it - fun). 1 tyre puncture on a Cruiser VX ( I think ). And after trying various jacks, air jack, they finally came right. Apparently the body is quite low so you cannot really get the jack underneath the car. Also a less minor incident involving a Range Rover's electric fans.

    Then there was the same Cruiser driving over a rock into a hole. Resulting in the body being trapped on the rock. We got to see the lift mate ( I think it's called that ) in action. Lifting the front wheel of the car and packing rocks underneath it.

    And yes, I got to see and hear Barto's HiLex again after almost a year!

    Here's some photos:
