    Default David (Evoque) rescuing Goliath (Land Cruiser bakkie)

    I really don't have hang-ups on the topic of which manufacturer pulled which out.

    But today was quite funny and unexpected

    📢 "Next!"

    In the end, this one was actually recovered from the front by an old Defender, as that was where the other recovery straps were already fixed on to....

    Go cutie!

    Evoque to the rescue.

    I know this is no reflection of ability but still fun.

    Lol - this is like when a hot young blond helps you get up after you have slipped on a wet floor in the mall - embarrassing but nice

    I wish I had photos of my antique Series IIA Landy towing a brand new Hi-Lux home to Kommetjie from the bottom of Ou Kaapseweg through rush hour traffic. Lots of hooting, smiles and waving.

    Good work! I'm reminded of my rescuing a Land Rover, a Bakkie, and another vehicle from a river bed in Botswana, in my.................. Peugeot 304 (rented).

    When the dad rocked up (in the other cruiser), the son said "Pa, oppas, jy gaan ook vas sit" to which he contorted his face into the most squinted contorsion, and muttered a loud "agggghhh man" . Then 10 seconds later he was up to his axles flailing to and fro like a frog on ice.
    It was VERY funny!

    Truth be told though, I was stuck in that same hole a few minutes earlier such that my friend in an old Defender had to pull me out.

    As for the gear, no, my wife had taken my Defender for the weekend with all my kit. So I was left with the little Evoque and one bridal strap.

    Will post a link to the video of the day soon....

    The dumbest to do in mud recoveries is to enter the muddy area of the stuck vehicle. Keep the recovery vehicle on terra firma

    The Evoque maybe have better electronics ,ride comfort and fuel consumption but there it ends . Whe use Cruisers in Juba and some crew got stuck in the main street in to be pulled out by the other Cruiser. It was a axle twister and not enough momentum.

    Anjo, I think you just got baited.
    Nobody in their right mind would believe that an Evoque could compete with a Land Cruiser offroad. Not even me

    But that's what makes this situation so entertaining.

    Mud is the equalizer, I have even got a Uimog and a Samil 20 stuck in mud in my military days. Had to find logs to fit under tyres.
    This was during rainy season and was fun, and yes we thought we were invincible. haha. The heavier the vehicle and the more capable what can happen is that you could get stuck in places no one else will go, or can go, in order to rescue you.
    It is great that we as South Africans all help each other and do not drive by just smiling. I even got my 4x4 tractor stuck once and had to get a Mahindra Bolero to pull it out. No shame, if you do not get stuck, then try harder else you will never gain experience. Hahah

    Same i had in Mabuasehube, i had to pull 2 Landies up a sand dune on the road back to SA and they did not get stuck, they were to powerless to get up and through the sand. I surpose it gave you great satisfaction that is why you had to post it with photos and all.
