    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 :eek:h noes:

    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
    :D

    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.

    I knew you North Islanders didn't like us...taking one of our local trucks out. It will be the tanker drivers fault. It always is:O_O:

    What would have caused it to roll do you guys think - did he get off into something soft?? Hard to see from the pic . . . .

    Woodley's boys a long way from home. Good to see all are ok. Bloody media overdoing it again, typical. Lucky our local reporter Dundee was at hand for the truth :thumbsup:

    Cause of accident as reported in the Manawatu Standard "the driver was reaching across the cab for another mince pie" causes truck to get unbalanced heading into 45kph corner
