    Snow trip August

    Just got back from one of the best snow trips I've ever been on!

    We got a huge dump of snow during the week and the weekend was simply perfect weather with great food and company.

    There is nothing better than being the first vehicle on a track with thick snow ploughing your way through! Darren came undone on a track and ended up taking us a solid hour or more of all different types of recoveries to get his gu out of a ridiculous bog. We snapped winch ropes and had to grind off shackles and all types of double line pulls to finally get him out!

    Absolutely spewing I couldn't make it! We headed up to Mt Useful and Mt Selma as a day trip on the Saturday and had a blast.

    Nothing like sand. More like mud but more slippery and cold.
    Nothing really compares.

    Was a bit of a recovery effort this one. Daz had a little run off moment, although we all had at least one on this track. Being first it was hard to see where the track is under the snow and Daz was set for a swichback on a downhill but ended up being a water run off. . . bugger, missed the tree tho which was good . . .

    Luckily Markies beast of a winch ended up saving the day after AB's rope snapped. Used 2 snatch blocks in the end after trying a heap of other ways. . . It was stuck pretty good. Wish i got a photo but there was a river flowing through the front wheel by the end of it!
