Thanks Albo.

It will be 3-4 weeks before we get out there. Hopefully it will have dried out a bit by then.

Don't you just hate those midgies. I'll never get the missus out there if the midgies are bad.

Dunno about the extra B, I take it and the buggers love me. I must have good blood or they like the Al K Hol  lol!   kwdf

Garlic might be the go.  It will keeps ticks of a dog for awhile, I might try that next.

Phil and I both bogged at same time about 60 metres apart, took us 3 hours to get out using  winch, snatch strap, high lift jack and shovel.
I had to use my foldup table as a skid for the drawbar on the trailer. Good learning experience for both of us.

Cheers Kev

Still wet out there Kev, sure hope you can get onto a bit of dry ground and be rewarded for your troubles.

I guess it was fortunate that you had two vehicles there and that extra pair of hands.

Yep bogged , the only thing worse than being bogged is bogged alone, real hard work, blunt axe, rickety kangarroo jack, & the only wood is 100 metres away , no phone, 120 km east willuna , worst 3 days of my life.... Had beer but⛱
