How about we have a little "Blooper of the Month" competition? Please nominate fellow forum members or even yourself for this competition and we set up a poll and vote for a winner. Jurgen's little blooper a few weekends ago springs to mind for example. ( viewtopic.php?f=14&t=6696&p=74617#p74617 ) You can nominate somebody for getting stuck in a precarious position, lighting a smoke with a blow-torch and burning half his mustache off (if he comes from Pretoria) or anything else. The only condition is that it must be accompanied by a picture showing the blooper... :clap: :clap: :clap:

There are no prizes to be won, but I will open a "read only" thread where we will post the picture(s) of the winner and a small description of "WTH were you thinking" written by the winner telling us what happened and the lessons he learnt from his experience. At the end of the year we can bring out a calendar which we can sell and donate the money to charity... :shock: :thumbup: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Okay I will get the ball rolling. I nominate young Jurgen for this month's Blooper. In a moment's lapse of concentration he reversed down a hill and ended up with his Savuti Hilux on its side.

Forum Members only... otherwise we could cut and paste pics from other websites as well, and that's just not fair. Unless you want to admit that was actually YOU in the water there... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

On the other hand if this was a Recovery of the Month competition, then Jack would be eligible. Nothing stops you from running such a competition as well... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

I nominate my wife, for re-arranging my garage door, the night before we were going on a trip, as I had put the spare wheel on the roof-rack. :lol:

You're supposed to put it unna-neaf, or onna back like the vehicle inna background! :D: 'Sides iffa your wife issa short, she canna see da tyre onna roof! :D: :wink:

Ja' there's a lot to be said for a tail mounted spare. With the old SFA the tail overhang is so long that an underslung spare does little to hamper the departure angle, so I don't have that problem.

Anyway, it's a fair nomination for 'bloopers', .... I was just pulling your leg. :wink:

Recovery....al wat ek effens beter oor kan voel. Die manne het die bakkie bietjie per hand oorgetrek maar ek het self uitgery. OK, daar geen recovery vir my ego nie, ek moes die " maak my naam krater hemp daai volgende dag dra, die tweede keer op die trip!

Jy praat, die ergste is ek het werklik nie die gat gesien nie want daar het n ander voertuig voor my gestop. Hyt uitgetrek en ek het vorentoe gery. Die volgende oomblik voel ek net daar gaan die bakkie en die grond kom nader. Ek gly kant toe en my voet trap vas op die petrol pedaal. Die bakkie rev maar gelukkig is ek in tweewieltrek en net die linkerkantse agterwiel tol in die lug. As jy mooi kyk sal jy sien net die regter voorwiel is op die grond en die sil onder my deur. Binne voel dit soos n Hollywood fliek waar die kar op die afgrond se kant balanseer en jys te bang om te beweeg. Dit alles n paar duisend kilo's en twee grensposte weg van SA.

There are guys in other clubs that maintain that we don't use our vehicles for off-roading, we should send them this link.
