Here we go again...yeeeewwwww !! Mountain trip 29/1/12

Unread post by Harb » January 30th, 2012, 3:07 pm

Well due to work commitments and other things I haven't been out for a while....
But with a bit of interest re appearing , I decided to put some new batteries in Project X and change the oil, pump the tires up and head out.
Ulises hasn't been out either since his original truck caught fire, so he was keen to give the new rig a go as well, So myself and Michele, Ulises and Carina headed up to our local spot and have a day out in the sandstone.
Only damage for the day was 1 blown power steering hose.........here are some Pictures..... :D

What an incredible day we all had, the weather, the tracks, the cars, the people, everything just went smoothly.

And i finally got some of my pics sorted.... the girlfriend did a pretty good job with the pics, knowing that its the first time she was both wheeling and taking pics.

You know you will have a top day when the morning looks like this.

Yeah I am dam lucky I didn't rip anything off with that loose winch cable......its a good lesson in making sure you finish one job before moving on to the next...... I was mucking around at the back putting all the extension straps and things away and then forgot to pull the last bit of cable in....dohhhh :crazy:

Hey Harbs, good to see you out and about again, Great pics as well.
I love that track, I've done a rear panhard up there and The missus did an ankle!
Guess which was the must expensive?
could have replaced the entire suspension, wheels and tyres and bought a winch as well!

The Dove and 62 Studie Hawk are just bonuses for the weekend.

Hi,
Just was wondering where in Blue Mountains this track is, looks for a great day out but my truck will need a few extra's before I head there.

I look forward to hearing back from you

Cheers
