17/02/08 - Slab Common
As a special treat we went over to the MacMillan Charity 4x4 Drive around at Slab Common. Slab Common is a military driving area where REME practice large vehicle recoverys. Therefore it is chewed up by tanks and strewn with wrecked vehicles. Some very challenging sand (they also practice Army desert maneouvres here) led to some sticky moments.
Much of the time was spent grinding to a halt in the seemingly harmless sand.
There is always a bit where you can get your wheels in the air, but only a small amount as I respect my front driveshafts!Â
And there is always one place where you can flex the suspensionÂ
And stuck again!Â
