    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    No mention of closing the track on DOC website. Think they were getting grumpy about people going off the track and ripping it up around the historic areas where they're not supposed to be driving, but its hard to police somewhere remote like that. They might have cameras in places now but I'm not sure, haven't been in there myself yet.

    This was a bit of a pain , especially since I had a grandchild with me who likes to give advice.

    Did you let your tyres down to about 10psi & drive out of it?

    Nope, had a fair way to go before I could have put more air in
    just kept putting seaweed and sticks under the front wheels until I got out
    Took a fair while, one wheel turn at a time

    Hilux utes are the worst 4x4 I've ever had for getting stuck
    Let me qualify this.
    Ive actually only ever had two 4x4's
    I had a Surf for 11 and a bit years, low Ked never did me wrong, never got it stuck, bottom ball joints a couple of times and that was that.


    Then I figured I best get myself one of these flash harry utes, sold the surf for fuck all at 167Km,
    Well I've had the new stuck one on 4 occasions now, lucky never yet had to get outside help but...Damn near gave up today,

    Todays effort
    Was taking the hound to the river, in my usual spot was a carload of dickwanks with a couple of pitty looking things, drove on looking for another spot, found one.
    Don't look to bad.

    After an hr and a half plus of carting river stones and other shit to put under the tyres I had rocked it enough to go backwards.

    Then lined it up, put it in 4 high and planted the boot as hard as she would go
    Drove through
    Maybe should have done that in the first place.

    Everything was a bit mucky, especially as I'd had the windows down, however got home without having to walk out and ask for a tow, and that's the main thing in a small town.
    Some I have spoken to this arvo say possibly operator error may have been the cause , nah, don't belive it, must be the Hilux.

    Even had a helper getting sticks for you, or was it pinching them. Tyre choice??
