    Default Sand Recovery & Snow Chain Practise(Chimes)s)

    Few of us are meeting up at Chimes,10am, Sunday 12th to test a new design of snow chains that I've developed.
    I know its not snow but the mud and sand at Chimes are the closest.
    So if you've ever wondered how to attach snow chains,or see how effective they are in mud-heres your chance.

    We also have a recovery bridge/ladder that we will be putting through its paces.
    Its the only winch/self recovery system I've seen,that works.

    Watch as Hillbilly winches himself up a mine dump using the recovery ramp as a anchor.....

    All this equipment is being used in a upcoming Lesotho Snow Expidition

    We will of course be driving and finding different scenarios to do our 'tests'
    So even join us for some action

    It is NOT a sales pitch!


    Who's coming?

    Georgethegreek's wife went away with my wife on business today.

    Feeling rejected and lonely,especially as he was driving solo,he apparently decided it was a good time to ...how do I write this nicely.......pleasure himself.
    Then lost concentration on the trail,passenger side climbed up a embankment,drivers side fell in a hole/step.
    His 90 softly rolled onto its side.
    Luckily there were plenty of tree branches that cushioned his lie down.

    Difficult area,need two winches,one from the side over a large mound and one from the back to right him.
    No injuries apart from Georges pride,few scrapes on the Def wheel arches and roof gutter.

    Def 90 started first time and carried on driving.
