    Getting bogged at an AP meet

    On our AP meetup today we had a couple of hicups.
    Firstly Dave had something fall off his car. Dave you could explain this one better.

    The Andy got stuck in a bog hole to deep to pull himself out of with his car he was driving but bloody hell he did a good job. Well done Andy!

    I lost a bolt on the sump guard access panel. A quick jack up, second jack put in place for safety and then unbolted the remaining bolt and we were on our way again.

    Later in the day, I discovered I've also broken a hub-cap in one of the creek crossings. No biggie, it's still attached, just smashed in, in the middle.

    Dave was your hub cap on the passenger side front? I'm sure you hit a rock at one of the last crossings. Thats why Andrew went in the deep end. Smoother ride but deep. You went the shortest rough side. We swore you hit something then and that's why we chose the deep end.

    Yeah I think it was then too. Car slipped sideways on a rock there. At least it'll be a relatively cheap fix.

    Yeah it did slide sideways there. It was a big rock as well. Glad it was only a cheap fix. So it it run in yet or do we give her another run? LOL
