I probably won't be able to make it Monday, I was there last week though, camped overnight, few new tracks which is good. Was fun after the rain, I reckon I flushed half of Jakem Farm onto my driveway from the engine bay and undercarriage the other day.
Enjoy everyone, make sure to take some pics

Wish I could've been there, but was on the way back from Berri with the family. I also doubt I should tackle Jakem in a stock WK2 with 20" wheels.

It ended up just being the 2 of us. But we had a pretty good time. Got a few photos between us that'll we'll post.

I think next in line is border track.

Border Track will be great ��

Was one of you lot in a Wrangler? I just saw a mud covered Wrangler at the Golden Grove KFC ��

Yeah mate, that was me. I'd totally suggest their new pulled pork burger.

Haha, awesome, I was sitting in the drive through admiring the fine mud coverage, thinking, now there is someone who has had some fun ��

Not sure if this is the best place for this so please let me know if I should move it.

Bit of a trip report and some photos!

After meeting up and signing in headed out the back to have a play in some mud

And it was at this point that my winch decided that it would only like to spool out and not back in...:wall:

Thanks to Skettler for the snatch and many after that too! (I still blame you for the hour long recovery after saying the famous last words of "You'll get through that easy!"

Anyway off to find some nice hill climbs and i just had to stop Skettler half way up to get some flex shots

Drove around for a few more hours doing some more hill climbs and playing in a bit more mud, just about to wrap it up until Skettler's keen eye found "jeepers road".

Overall a fantasic day out with minimal breakage, the funniest thing being that my rear view mirror fell off!

Thanks for the day Skettler, desperately trying to get my lift in ready for the next one with hopefully a few more cars!

It was a pretty great day. Even after we had a few things break. Need more people to come along next time.

Hour long recovery? That might be pushing it a bit. More like 45-55 minutes.

I need to get these videos uploaded and then I'll post them. Got some of you almost making it up that hill climb.

Time to start planning for the Border track trip.

Good pics fellas. The mud ruts in your first pic had about a ft more water in them the week before, it was where many cars got stuck last time we went. Did you try the hill climbs down near that little bit up on the hill, my Grand couldn't make it, my mates bloody Prado pretty much walked up it though ��
There was a great big hole in the creek by the gate that was chopped up and heaps of people having a go at too.

Yeah I tried a couple of the hill climbs. Got to the top and just didn't have the lift to get over the last step.
Couple of patrols came after and breezed it though. Just shows how helpful big tyres are haha.
Is that in the training pit? A few guys tried it and just couldn't get it. Pretty insane stuff really

Jakem videos (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-LC21zTgL393i_7MR7M3LuUaW2jsHcL_)

Videos are up. Please remember, I hit things with a hammer for a living, not make or record videos.

Good vids, that hill climb is a real bitch, did the JK make it?, thats where I kept getting stuck too. my mates Prado walked up it (traction control and locker) and my other mate in an old Hilux bounced up it at full tilt after a few attempts.

Na mate, I didnt try. Not a huge fan of hill climbs after almost rolling at loveday.
