    bit of a balls up alrite. It had rained in the hills and the water came up so fast he couldn't walk it out in time, made it about half the 60m to the ramp before he had to shut it down and ended up being lifted off it with another crane. he had to hold on to the hook and be lifted to safety, no osh in those days i don't think.

    The driver didn't have a NZ licence and most likely never driven on a gravel road.

    I've straddled the big rut many times but on the way out today the low side slipped in. A bit of dicking around with the winch and I was on my way again some minor panel damage to beat out tomorrow.
