19th and 20th, November

Postby Crawlerer79 » Sun Nov 20, 2016 8:49 pm

What did everyone get up to?

Dad and I headed down the Selwyn River for a bit of a drive, need to get my Disco out as its been sitting around a while (started up first pop I might add :D :D :D :D )

After messing around for about an hour I managed to find the one log in the whole river, and buried it in my bead (Even with 26psi).

Image

I was driving down the main stream of the river and hit a soft section of pea gravel so I nailed it and collected a log that was submerged (that I couldn't see obviously haha).

Image

After changing to the 7.50x16 spare we called it a day and headed home. Only when we arrived home did we find I'd done the same to the rear (except not as bad)

Image

Image

On with another 7.50 we had lying around (I'd hate to know how it got such horrid camber wear)

Image

Suddenly looked a lot rougher!!!!

Image

First one again

Image

Total damage

Image

Sorry, I know it's pic heavy, that's just me :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Anyways, cleaned one out, nearly dropped the wood inside the tyre haha that would've sucked!!!! Anyways, that's my weekend....

Looks good.... does it just come with the two poles or has it got another two so you can park your vehicle under it? Cause that could be good for trips away rather than having to take down the awning each time

Nah its a pull-out awning, attached to the truck. 4 poles would be more of a gazebo...
