Thank you for appreciating it and reading it!

I think their is one more laning trip and some odds and ends to sort out in repairing it as far as possible. It's weird as some Photobucket pictures are still showing. They're generally low resolution phone pictures though.

I have repaired this thread as much as it can be now and have done from page 10 onwards tonight. It has been time consuming but my thread works again!

That is weird. All mine got blocked.
You've done a good job restoring stuff. I gave up on my lathe forum.

I've posted this in Jimny Chat but wanted it on my thread too, so here it is here:

This morning we took our little one to the child minder, which involved going rural!

This meant going on roads which had suffered from snow drifts over night. After dropping him off and taking the Mrs to work a tractor was out ploughing the road but had to stop when a taxi was blocking the way as we came to a village. A big standard 4x4 on road tyres went past the tractor and got stuck. I went past the tractor and 4x4 and got stuck - it was quite deep!

I wasn't worried as I've got the winch, there was plenty to winch off and if that failed I had the woffle boards n the roof.

I bought my Jimny years ago from KAP Suzuki in Yorkshire so you can imagine my surprise when one of their Landranger Pick Up conversions - in black, the best colour, stopped just where I could do with attaching a winch rope to!

What's the chances of a Jimny arriving at the right place at the right time, let along one built where mine was built, and a Landranger at that!

So I winched off it to get through, tow the taxi out and make way for the Tractor to plough the road for everyone else!

Click the little cross below for a video of it!



Here comes the tractor:



Here's the Landranger:



Now that's a lot of excitement for Essex!

I didn't get time to chat properly as he got a call from his boss after he'd WhatsApp 'd a video of it to him and the Mrs was already late for work! I'd imagine they're Recip Trial's looking at them though.

Nice one.
Keeping mobile in these conditions is why I drive 4x4s. It is ever since I mashed up my RS2000 back in a bad snowfall in the mid 1980s. I bought an old Landy there and then followed by a Suzuki LJ and never looked back. You all know I don't do mudplugging type of stuff but I do do snow.
