What tracks do you have in mind Winston?

Dry Creek firebreak, shiels, then head up around to quarry rd area. Skipping any hard stuff as I've got different shafts going in the front on the 8th due to the current ones being too long and resulting in binding on full droop. Won't be doing the ladder this trip sadly.

Cheers everyone for a good, challenging and interesting day out. Great to see awesome teamwork coming together when Thurstain broke his tail shaft. Greatly appreciate everyone's assistance.

Look forward to seeing you on the tracks again in the near future.

To Winston,
I know the day did not go as planned, but I thought you, James, Thurstain and Anastasia did an amazing job rescuing the Navara. Oh and I was there when Thurstain found the money he gave you back in his car after you left, it was generous of Thurstain to offer.... but I thought what a humble and gracious man you are..... cos you really did bust a gut today keeping things on track.

Anyway for us spectators it was not all lost we had some great conversations, met some really nice people and there was still plenty of hairy 4WDing. I would join you any day out in the bush.

Thanks again Rob.

Will edit the footage of Thurstain's down hill recover so I can shoot it your way, not going onto youtube though.
Here is a quick fly around:

Thank you everyone! Finally at home and got some dinner in me. What a long bloody day and you are all absolute legends especially Winston. Great effort from everyone and really appreciate it. Usually I always jump out and help everyone when I can and I'm glad today everyone helped me.

Was an interesting day to say the least. Glad it's now behind me and hope it's an easy fix at the mechanics.
