My thoughts exactly! It's a miracle that there were no injuries with all those people milling about during the two snap-ups. Amazing too that the tow-balls held!

First mistake was going in there to start with .... one can see how soft and deep the mud is when that guy tramps it with his foot .... "like jelly" was the one comment.

:crazy:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
