    En daai pad af is BAAAAAIE scary en nat gewees, ek sou anyway 3 keer dink voordat ek Sondag daar sou wou af op daai kleigrond, al het ons Olive daar uitgekry. Sy moet letterlik EEN TREE vorentoe kan beweeg dan is sy uit.

    Eks eintlik BAAAAAAIE bly ons HET haar nie daar uitgekry nie, was klaar ook donker gewees. Lesson learnt - hopelik die keer die laaste keer

    Ask the Audience............

    As julle Olive so kyk, sal mens haar kan uitkry met so 4 manne met grawe, ons het ook 2 Diesel Gators wat ons kan gebruik met straps.....

    Maw ons (OK hulle) grawe so bietjie, pak klipperjies, en gee almal 'n stootjie EN ons het nog 2 Gators ook wat voor gelyk kan trek......??

    Ek kan seker ook 'n hand winch en/of trok straps en/of 'n draadtrekker saamvat.

    My pel gebel daar naby, die son skyn maar dis maar nog nat (op die vlaktes, ek dink daar bo gaan hy redelik droeer wees).

    My laaste uitweg is " Phone a Friend", hy kan trekker stuur maar ek wil eers self probeer regkom, wil nie die man onnodig pla nie

    Vat een van die Cruisers op jou vloer en `n snatch rope. Net `n ligte plukkie en jy ry weer.

    Durf die modder aan, grawe en kyk eers mooi wat haak onder daai kar - voor jy skade maak. 'n Patrollie sit nie sommer vir niks vas nie, iets hou vas....

    OK.....wat julle basies vir my se is dat daai 2 Gators net grawe en mense gaan laai en nie Olive's uitsleep nie

    Sal seker so 11 uur wegkom, dis darem naby, so 120km van hier af. My seun en sy pel gaan die naweek gelukkig Winterton toe, so die 2 latte kan help, veral met al die vuiler werkies

    Sien nogal kwaai uit gaan BAIE exciting wees hoop ek

    Sys uit.

    Jomar and I left at around 12, when we arrived there we took the Gator, and a strap and went looking for Olive.
    Road was luckily dried up, but Olive was still standing in thick potklei, in the wood.
    She started easy peasy.
    We attached the strap, but the Gator didn't really move that big Mamma, so Jomar went back to fetch the 3 hands and shovels.
    While he's gone I started deflating the Coopers a bit and rocked her forth and back.....difficult, she had a small tree behind her, but I did manage to move her enough to get some rocks in front of 3 of her wheels.

    Sweated a LOT, but it was just GREAT to be in a soaking wet (from sweat) shirt again, have mud on your hands and legs, and taste that saltiness in your mouth. When Jomar arrived back I could see in his eyes that he knows the old ballie is still....well...lekker and strong and getting in there.

    She slipped a wee bit to that ledge but nothing serious.

    ALMOST got her out on my own but decided to rather wait, she was getting close to that ledge....if she started spinning, even when moving, there'd be trouble.

    Jomar arrived, we attached the Gator, and after 2 or 3 attempts those Coopers found grip, and out she went.

    Wasnt even necessary for the Malawi's to come help but ja...thanks to them, too. GREAT Guys those.

    Little bit of damage but nothing to serious....I wanted to Raptorise all the black bits again anyway.

    Was an exciting day, full of mud mind you, and I'm VERY glad everything went well.

    Absolutely AMAZING place this, friend of mine's weekend getaway , stunning scenery , PLENTY game (the giraffes are so time I think they'll eat out of your hand), plenty amazingly nice little 4x4 tracks all over the place. About 700 hectares of pure heaven.

    And yes....these Patrols are tough as bloody nails 4x4s.........��....very very tough. I love Olive to bits.

    And I learned something.....

    1) deflate, even just at 1.5 or so. Dont be lazy, or think it's "gonna be fine". I really NEVER bother to get out and deflate, and ja. Here are the results.
    2) get a GOOD tyre inflator and keep it in the car. Not those small Midas jobbies...I felt my hair turning greyer while waiting for that thingie to inflate again.
    3) dont ever think you know it all and can do it all, no matter what 4x4 you're using....you DON'T know it all.

    Lastly thanks for all good advise in here...especially the ones dealing with deflating.

    Mooi. Baie verlig alles het volgens plan verloop. Nou kan jy weer bietjie sweet as jy haar was en tlc gee. Sy het die nodig. Jy het haar gemors en verlate gelos vir n week in die bos.

    YSTER 4x4, die Patrol.

    Ek is genuine net BAAAAIE bly:

    1) On het vasgesit daai aand.......as ons verder gegaan het sou ons nie eens AMPER daai steep afdraandes in die nat klei kon maak nie, en waarskynlik bietjie groter akkas opgetel het. Eks SERIOUSLY bly die manne het selfs nie eens die Sondag vir Olive daar gaan uithaal nie.
    2) Dit was gister droog op daai paadjie terug. Was eintlik vrek maklik terug, maar ja - as dit reen is dit 'n ander ball game daar, ek sal nie eers daaraan dink om dit te probeer nie. Jy gaan baie beslis teen 'n klip vasgly of van daai berg af neuk.

    Maar absolutely STUNNING area, ek sal vandag weer gaan as ek kan.
