    What's with the straight line coming towards the camera from your towbar?

    Yep, solo reccy mission to check out a spring hunting spot.
    The straight line is a blade of grass, so not much help at all really.

    A wider angle pic would show the river about 2 metres in front of the wagon, and the fact that the driverside rear is in as deep as the front.
    No cell coverage. No recovery gear. Nearest property was about ten km back.
    The only way to get through the river/big creek, meant clipping the side of that mud hole. Unfortunately, the front end slid into it

    A bit of rock n rolling back and forth got her out eventually, after 2o mins or so,

    The worst part, is that the only reason it happened was because I wanted to get to the track end, which was across the water. It turned out the track finished about 50 mts
    round the bend on the other side

    Looks like a harmless corner, looks like the ones that came to grief missed there braking points. The crowd certainly got there moneys worth.

    A stock truck rolled near Dvke yesterday and media reports of cows getting shot and a milk tanker causing the crash are absolutely bullshit! The milk tanker was behind the scene of the crash and parked his tanker across the road to block traffic. Driver of the cattle truck was ok and all animals were inspected by a vet after being herded into a nearby paddock by locals.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
