We were all wearing "plakkies" and sand burning the sh1t out of us if your foot sinks in it. Had to lie on the bonnet and attach the tow strap from above.
    Pic 2. Friends car, me driving. steep drop off on left of car. steep uphill to right of car. Drove a jeep up the left side as far as it could go then joined two straps to pull the back around.
    Pic 3. My previous car. One of those stupid moments.
    Pic 4. Another previous car. Could not get the doors open. Had to climb through the windows.
    Pic 5. Friends Pajero. This one wasn't too much of a problem. Eventually drove it out backwards.
    Pic 6. These friends were new to the "getting stuck" scene and tried to snatch using a normal strap. You can see the strap flying in this pic. Went over the top of the Wrangler and landed on the bonnet. Fortunately nobody was hurt and no damage done.

    will post a few more later.

    Drowned the Hilux in Baviaanskloof, recovery took place the next day. Had to organise a recovery vehicle from the other side of the kloof (after we walked to the nearest farmstead quite a few kilos down stream, we covered the last few kilo's after sunset, but fortunately the moon was bright........)

    Yes, there was an article in the May 2005 SA4x4. We did a trail at Vleikloof in the Baviaanskloof. The trail runs in a dry riverbed, but after heavy floods in the area the trail was a real challenge with rocks and boulders everywhere.
    We eventually reached the water hole with nowhere to turn around. I first walked the water and although the water came to my hips, we decided to go for it. I would have made it (famous last words!), but my Hilux was fitted with a Lockrite locker in the front diff (which one can't disconnect) and I couldn't hold the right line. The locker just pulled straight where I had to go right and the rest is history....

    Something similar happened to me in the Baviaans in November 2005, the Osseberg trail to be exact, in a 2.8D Isuzu I had at the time. At least we could tow it out of the water ourselves with another Isuzu and then went back in my cruiser to recover it.

    Well, what can I say

    Went riding yesterday with Zantus and cmcs at Maitland Mines in PE and is it extremely beautifull there. But that's not the point, there was one hectic section, Zantus eventually made it up in the Disco and cmcs made it up under coaching from Zantus.

    My turn came and also under Zantus' coaching but a litlle more aggressive than cmcs and I made an instant ratsalad!!

    I made it halfway up obstacle 10 and the front diff turned to ratsalad...!

    And of coures then the Ford had to be winched up, Thanks cmcs, and the Disco towed me out, thanks Zantus, to where I can return back to the homestead and wait for them to finish play.

    I don't have pics but cmcs' SWAMBO took a lot, so I'm certain he'll post some later.....

    I'm of to Ford to get the front diff replaced and then it's back there...!

    Tan-n-biki Mosambiek in nat klei/modder. Regs het die trekker vasgesit en 'n ander trekker moes hom kom uithaal. Links voor het 'n Landy gesit dat jy nie sy agterdeur kon oopmaak nie. 'n Klompie quads het hom gehaak en uitgehaal. Toe ons daar kom het dit gelyk na groot pret en ek is so tussen die trekker en Landy recovery deur sonder probleme. Nou-ja-toe, dis mos tyd om wintie te raak......DANKIE CASTOS

    Just looking at all the pics etc got to wondering, is there a difference in being stuck, is stuck just stuck, or is stuck definable...
    1. Stuck on the top of a dune, 2 minutes and I was out
    2. Stuck in mud, like Castos, 6 minutes and you're out
    3. Cruiser stuck, over an hour
    4. stuck is such a way that you need a digger loader to get you out...

    Sometimes stuck is just that, maybe just a bit of a bad line and then you just need a quick pull to get you going again, like about 20cm(Me @ Vaatjie, Kalahari doing the pulling) or is it stuck when you say "Jarre, you should have checked how long it took to get HIM out of there, eish, long time"

    It as after all all part of the fun, buurman there getting lekker stuck in the mud etc...

    Zulu you're right. But I was out in the river within 5min. My truck weights about 1.8 tons where the cruiser was close to 3.2 tons. This makes on hell of differance when being stuck.

    I thought the term stuck is very self explanatory. If you can't without assistance go forward or backward, you're stuck.
