Ant,

I see you have lost a bit of weight.

It must have been from carrying all those huge boulders to build roads for the croozer to catch-up.... :rolling: :rolling:

Good work!!

Yes, some might argue that there is a conspiracy against the Landy's in this video.
Nice to see one of each of the four Classics in action though.
Pity you could not show how the Patrol gets up there after the Landy's recovery.

It took so much time to do that recovery that we decided that Japie and I would not do that one,otherwise we may be busy for half the day only filming one obstacle at Kareekrans and we don't cover the rest of the route/tracks. But.... look out in the next episode we tackle an even more difficult obstacle.

Me neither. I enjoyed that. Although I do question the use of a snatch strap as an anchor rope? Looking at the forces involved, I think both winches should have used snatch blocks, but hindsight is a wonderful commodity.

The other small pity is that one never sees the Ford working. But that's what happens when a stock 4x4 accompanies the hard-core guys.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.
