    That looks like Nico's 300. They'd have just pulled it backwards until the front wheel gripped again. The lower control arm would have slided on the beam. Nothing there to get damaged.

    Sakkie and Dookie is spot on. I pulled in behind him and towed him out. Did not even seem like he was stuck

    The pole bridge tapered to the end and became too narrow. If you look at it from the front you would see, no way that left wheel could've stayed on.

    Hey Sako

    I remember now, seeing the white landy reminded me of the TDi my old man has. Yah, it was a great day. Must have been funny watching the Cherokee trundling along behind those Isuzu trucks! Let's just say that I checked to make sure the safety route were A-OK on a couple of the sections

    That pole bridge is super narrow. My fiance was guiding me over the first time and even though my right wheel (which I was watching like a hawk!)was bang on the edge she was waving for me to go more to the right!!

    I dunno how much wider the Isuzu was but he must've been an inch only on each side of that bridge...

    Default what we did this weekend!

    Finding out the meaning of Priceless!

    "Getting stuck no where near a 4x4 track" and not one 4x4 but a total of 3.

    to Ashamed to add any pictures

    My Ex- Girlfriend and I Visited my sister is Johannesburg, after a few days of no privacy we intend to go and 4x4 out of the public J, it was still early in the afternoon, so So Lust vs 4x4 we just drove on and stop without “walking the trail”
    when we took the first corner between a lot of trees and park the car there, just 10 min later Mr Isuzu KB250 parked up rite in front of us, to get a front row seat!.

    So I tried rev, and back off but my Landrover Freelander tdi4, just did not move anywhere, luckly I wasn’t the only one, Mr Isuzu also got stuckt.

    We where standing on a grass top with a small miniature river under us and just clay everywhere. I know this wasn’t a good sign when I got out and couldn’t open my door.

    She was laying down her belly , and the sam e for Mr Isuzu.

    My Sister was 8months pregnant, no use calling her, I am Stuck 650Km from my hometown, and got a pervert stuck just 5 meters from my car.

    Luckaly a local with a 2x4 stop there and asked for assistance… he tried, and broke all his towing hear.. and decide to sit on his fan and look at the show.
    Finally Mr Isuzu called his boss and ask him to for help
    Help = Landrover Discovery V8 + got an arse chewin for loosing a client, he had to attend to instead looking at other humans J

    So help arrived, and guess what, also it is dark, 6 hours later since we got stucked.

    Also a crowd of people that walk past in the park drop by for moral support, and koffee. (thanks to the locals)

    To helped came in and 10 min later he also needed help!!! Oh man!!! LANDROVER!!

    Initially we called a two truck and got everyone out 11:45 @ night. Costing R400 per 4x4. also keep in mind the damage on the Vehicles I lost front fender, while been towed out.
    Everyone played a price except for the recovery truck!!!!

    Priceless experience for him.

    Ouch

    Sounds like it sucked BIG TIME, at least you were not on your own.

    Just clarify, it was clay that you got stuck in, had it been raining beforehand, and also where did this happen??

    Die een wat so vassit? Ek sal vir jou opsit. Rudolf het mooi gery, net op een plek te vinnig afgetap en momentum verloor.

    Bundu, Riverwild is 15km away from my home. We go there atleast 3 -4 times a year to camp. The route is very well set out and the facilities are very nice and clean. The people woorking there is very friendly.

    It's on the Sudwala road about 40km from Nelspruit in the lowveld. The Jeep did very good with shot tyres.

    Andre jy moet metRudolf praat. Hulle is nogal moeg!!
