Corners can be nasty.
When your this far in the woods, you may as well have a picnic........

Now come on Rusty, trees are very helpful when it comes to winching Landies out of mud.

Its looking that way.

I did not know that road too well, and the sun was in my eyes, and I misjudged the corner. shit happens.

More repairs.........


So far only thing found damaged is front bumper has a 2inch crack under the broken indicator/foglight, one alloy has a scuff, tyre has a 'almost hole' in the sidewall, and I'm losing <more>gearbox oil, possibly.....

1 tyre
1 indicator
1 indicator bulb
1 foglight bulb
1 tail light bulb(?)

The problem was getting it out, I had gone over the drainage channel / ditch etc, so was worried when we towed it back it may just sit in and need a lift out.

I apologise for the trees.......

well its the trees fault if they got hit. With that colour they should have seen you coming and moved out of the way!

Unlucky Lez, or should I say lucky. Silver Birch are pussies in the tree world. Good job they weren't Oaks. Nice reverse Basil Fawlty though, taking your car and thrashing the trees with it :lol: Hope you get your car fixed up okay.
