"The Ho" (31)

Sixteenth Trip (continued)

Both "The Ho" and Dave's Jeep got stuck on a short but slippery and rutted hill that we'd had trouble with the last time we were at Redbird...

"Ooohhh, that didn't sound good."

In the end, both vehicles had to be winched up this hill. The next video was taken by Jeff and shows Dave's Jeep being prepared to be winched up it...

One of Jeff's videos showing "The Ho" being winched up the same hill, straight into a tree - oops!

Part way through the day the gear linkage on Dave's Jeep kept putting the car in neutral which meant Dave had to keep getting underneath it to put it back in four wheel drive. A couple of times this happened in a mud pit...
