I don't know your experience level, but if you are interested, be prepared for a challenge and bring a navigator. Z listed some requirements above.

Your tyres will be adequate.. Boots and Jeans a must for night runs..

Guys, monitoring d weather; the area is being drenched.

We eh looking to be jacka*S cuz that particular area is dem 6610 and so in d back there. When dem leave trench it reachin to ur knee in depth, none ah we have axle clearance for dat if we slip in.

I wld suggest depending on weather today and if graced we make an assessment tomorrow b 4 we venture in with a convoy, we cld hit another area.

One run and minimal lift in a grade 3ish trail and yuh feel he could make a place where 6610 does romp in abundance? :o:o

Are lifts really that necessary?? The ground clearance achieved from taller tyres is what's important..

So what u telling the man?

Don't come to the 6610 terrain then?

Don't test what the potential of his van is?

Like first time a boi coming on a run he must be grade 10 equipped?

I just asking eh fadda, cause as far as i kno that how our club does it, we taking you to the limit, until u say u've had enough,

Let the organizer of the run decide nah!!!!

You missed his point completely, he was taking about the driver potential, not his van. Lol @ grade 10 equipped..

As yuh said Droppa....Let the organizer of the run decide.....

And witeboy211.....I not discouraging eh..... Call Z and get some info on whatever he doing.... Grade 10 equipped or whatever Droppa means has no relevance to whatever Z has planned.... To each his own...... As for me coming, we will see I guess...

And yes Droppa, I know that how 'your' club does it...... :roll:

Commitment and Delivery must be firstly be acknowledged!!!

Thx to "Sonson" for redefining the trail, with his tractor, for us to use last night. He also cleared up some fallen bamboo and was present to greet us before and there to congratulate us on completion. He had even pledged further assistance for recovery, if we needed.

Not much people have ah these qualities. Again thx!!!

Z, Dale (suzuki), Faiz (suzuki), Brian (suzuki grand vitara), Imtiaz (hilux), Renul (B2500).

Cancelling the initial run because of the expected increased difficulty of the trail as a result of heavy rains, i quickly sought to org another that we wld be able we undertake with hope of better conditions.

An assembly at my place, climbing over the roadside drain as a prerequisite to attend trail (LOL, know we does make good use of all sorts ah things) we headed and met Dale and Faiz. Also "Sonson" was there to wish us well and explain the terrain.

A prayer and briefing started us on our activity which was basically a Gr2. Driving on wet grass pushed over by the tractor, until we lost the trail....nah is a real steep downhill and corner. We carefully negotiated this as the clay was slippery, and then the conditions changed....the hard surface under the grass disappeared and it was slushy mud.

We each took on the challenges, pit after pit, until we passed through a bamboo grove and onto the main road....where we were met by a party of villagers.

Hope they make dat cheers 4 we...LOL

With ah somewhat early completion, we said goodbye to Dale and braved another.

Taking d Tortuga hill climb, relaxing and taking in the view overlooking the west coast, we had to cut short and head out because of a heavy downfall. This immediately changed the conditions as the stony terrain became slippery and unpredictable.

I then decided to give dem boys a lil peep at terrain close to the initially planned trail... it was clear the difficulty that we wld have faced if we had sticked to plan...

Some pics of the trail. Sadly I didn't get and pics of the final part of the original intended trail. But we will go back. For now, the new trail.

Lil loose waist and flexy back.

Dunno where we going, but we ploughing through the bush.

Eat some mud.

The epic view at the end of our exploration (before we went to see the original intended trail). My phone just couldn't get the true beauty of the night.

On the way out thru da bush.

Almost down the steep hill to exit/enter the trail. Pic doesn't show it's steepness and night time doesn't reveal the holes and one big rock almost at the top. Good hill to learn choosing the right line.

Just the start of the original intended trail caused all this mud on my van. So when we do decide to tackle that trail, it's gonna be one hell of a long and challenging trail. Deep ruts mixed with sharp turns and a narrow trail will make things very interesting.

"Almost down the steep hill to exit/enter the trail. Pic doesn't show it's steepness and night time doesn't reveal the holes and one big rock almost at the top. Good hill to learn choosing the right line"

Choosing d right line u say.....pappy, hw u feel at d angle when u slip on d rock at d top when keeping on the right.

Going a lil more x-way on that point will start u rollin. A bit too risky 2 use as such, u cld be victim of learnin d HARD way esp if now learnin/ novice.
